Scandinavian Nursery Inspiration? Sally Bernard has got you covered. The stylist from Inside Four Lines shares her top tips and how you can Get The Look.
It's a... BABY! It has finally happened.
You took the test – the two magic lines appeared… You are having a baby! Congratulations!
So much to do and less than nine months to squeeze it all in.
My favourite part – decorating the nursery! I have done it twice, and now I am here to help you with yours.
Where oh where do I begin?
We are certainly spoilt for choice when shopping for our little people. In fact, it can almost become overwhelming.
So let’s take it back to basics. A theme and a colour palette are the perfect place to start.
For this nursery I chose to work with Scandinavian design including the Lucie Kaas Bear and Lissa Thimm Deer Illustration- I must confess, I do have a slight obsession with all things Nordic at the moment!
But you can go for anything that works for you. Nautical, whimsical, floral, woodland, monochrome – the list is endless.
Select one or two colours you would like to predominantly feature and go from there.
Gender-neutral colours incorporating white and grey tones can be used for first and subsequent babies, and work well should you opt to keep your pink or blue surprise a secret from yourself or from others.
The obvious – a cot Sunbury Cot, a change table BZBX Changing Tower, and a comfortable place to feed.
Think of these as your investment pieces that will remain in your nursery until your baby days (sadly) come to a close. Look for designs that are practical yet presentable, and if storage is minimal in the room, try to keep this in mind when making your selections.
A few of my favourite things...
