New Addition to Your Home

modern nursery design ideas

Spring is always associated with happy new arrivals: lighter evenings, tree blossom, daffodils, new-born lambs. If a baby is the new addition to your home this spring then you’re likely to be thinking about getting a nursery ready. If frills and pastel colour schemes are not your thing then we’ve got some tips to create a stylish, functional room which pleases you and your little one.


Add character…

look beyond matching furniture ranges and use individual items to give an original feel to the room. Choosing a cot which converts to a junior bed means you have more longevity, it will take you through from birth to pre-school. Traditional styles are always easy to come by but there are plenty of other options on the market now also. If contemporary is more your style then this innovative rounded style from Danish brand Leander will add a great focal point.

Sleepless nights are part of the deal with a new baby so a feeding chair for those twilight meetings is invaluable. Avoid the frumpy nursing chairs which are redundant after a year and instead look out for a vintage bargain on ebay, re-upholster it in a modern fabric and then you can move it to the Lounge at a later stage. If you’re short on time, companies like Loose Button ( and Johnny Moustache ( offer ready to go and made to order solutions.

Smart Storage…

there is no getting away from the fact that there will be endless, garish plastic taking over your home! For those first few years at least. Bespoke joinery is not inexpensive but it will last right through to teenage years and beyond and is well worth the investment. A wall to wall bank of storage can incorporate wardrobe space, drawers, toys, shoes & coats for babies and toddlers and then adapt to housing board games, Lego, sports equipment and instruments as they grow older. Paint in bright colours or blackboard paint for added impact. Or you could get some other ideas for child bedroom storage The brilliant joiner we work with could make similar design and the interior can be specific to your requirements.


Colour Scheme…

Nursery in Gray Rather than the traditional nursery colours why not introduce more modern colours. Think soft greys on the walls teamed with a brightly coloured cot or blinds to add colour and interest. This also allows you to change the scheme as your little one grows without having to redecorate.

Nursery in Pale Powder Alternatively a good soft neutral is Pale Powder from Farrow and Ball. This soft green/grey is beautiful and very calming. You can then introduce bright blue pops of colour (see Farrow & Ball St Giles Blue) through blinds, furniture or upholstery. Alternatively create a more feminine look by teaming it with a lovely soft neutral with pink undertones like Farrow and Ball’s Slipper Satin.
