Countryside Nursery

Our expert advice:

We love countryside cottages and the décor that comes with it. So when designing a rural nursery, think cottage core – the trend that’s everywhere right now. It’s all about that cosy feeling of being in a cottage (with typical features like wooden panelling, a fireplace and thatched roof.) In their snuggly setting, choose wooden furniture, whimsical wallpaper, classic room accessories (like a rocking horse, rocking chair or night lamp) and wall art or fabrics with patterns featuring florals, wildlife and nature. Don’t fret, even if you don’t live in the countryside, you can still give it a rustic refresh.  

Nursery themes to consider: 

Floral, maximalist, wildlife or botanical

City Nursery

Our expert advice:

Your city nursery should feel super-luxurious with a touch of glam. An inner city nursery may have views overlooking a local square, lush gardens or skyscrapers, so you want it to evoke an equally deluxe feel. For the décor, think either neutral hues, monochrome patterns or dramatic tones that automatically give the space a modern, contemporary makeover. You can totally get away with an understated elegance vibe, incorporating gold embellishments and royal or fairy-tale style designs. 

You may also want to give the curve trend a go, which is perfect for compact spaces. Incorporating curves adds a sense of movement and flow to baby nurseries, giving features a puffy, bouncy aesthetic that looks calming and adorable. And it’s so easily done – you’ve mostly likely opted for curved décor before without even knowing it! 

Nursery themes to consider:

Regal, monochrome, woodland or boho
