Top Interior Design Hacks For A Summer Refresh


Hello, summer! As we start enjoying the warmer weather, brighter mornings and outdoor adventures, it’s the perfect time to give baby’s room a seasonal refresh. Ready to give their space a summery makeover? Your journey starts at The Baby Cot Shop. Our favourite nursery essentials aren’t just summery and sweet, they’re also hugely practical. Read on to find out more…

  • Try Colour Drenching 

    Be brave and bold this season, because if you can’t in summer then when can you? Cue colour drenching, the adventurous trend that gives their room an arty, creative feel (and we must say it’s what Pinterest dreams are made of). So what is it? It’s all about painting walls and choosing furniture in the same colour, giving the room a camouflaged, colour-washed effect.  If you’re looking for an energetic refresh that’s also super-fun, colour drenching is for you. Note: this season’s colour palette features energising hues ranging from sky blue to sunset orange, so try your favourite summer shade out via wallpaper, furniture and décor. With colour drenching, you can rest assured their room will look sophisticated and stylish, so if you’re looking for a versatile makeover (which perhaps you won’t have to change as they grow), this is calling your name.

    • Choose Floral Wall Art 

    Summer means swapping out cosy wall art (like woodland and mountain designs) for botanicals and florals. Our favourite wall art to elevate their nursery? Sunflowers. These beautiful flowers symbolise happiness and vitality, making their nursery feel bright and open. The best part? Sunflower wall art will never go out of style, so it can stay put on their wall from newborn days to big kid years.

    • Opt for a characteristic cot

    This summer is all about cots that are out-of-this-world. That’s right, show-stopping cots are all the rage right now, with ornate, elaborate headboards also on the hot list. They add glamour and character to baby rooms, doing all the hard work for you. Speaking of standout cots, the Balmoral Cot Bed is the staple summer pick that grows with your little one. It boasts a plush velvet headboard with a dual grain effect (dreamy) and a classic curved exterior – and did we mention it’s inspired by the Regency Era? Bridgerton eat your heart out.

    • Seek out mood-enhancing décor 

    You may not have thought about it before, but nursery décor can impact the way you and baby feel in the room. That’s why we’re all about positive, uplifting interiors that don’t sacrifice on elegance. So for an easy summer win, opt for decor that instantly puts a smile on your face and makes you proud to be a parent, whilst helping baby feel calm and inquisitive. Look out for neutral hues, nature-themed wall art, curved furniture, cuddly toys and comforting materials.

    • Reach for the canopies

    Canopies give nurseries an enchanting, fairy-tale-like feel. The perfect element to droop above their cot, reading nook or den, it’ll be their summer savour – especially as it protects any unwanted bugs flying in (including bed bugs at night – yay!). Choose a delightful wall crown to mount their canopy onto the wall for the most luxurious look.

    • Make a summer holiday creative hub

    School’s out for summer! And that means one thing – how’s best to keep the kids occupied? We have the answer. Make a creative station, whether that’s in their nursery, playroom or outside. If you want to gift them hours of entertainment, opt for the Classic Tables and Chairs by Savio Firmino, the ideal solution for some fun out of the sun. It’s a great base for them to do homework on and when they’re finished, they’ll love scribbling, drawing and learning on the chalkboard table.
