Hands up if before your first child arrived you were madly pinning gorgeous pictures of designer nurseries. These days nurseries are a big business and there are so many beautiful ideas and themes to choose from.. If you were like me though, the busyness of life and a touch of having no idea where to start meant that I barely had anything set up when my son arrived home from hospital. The good news is, it didn't matter. He slept in my room for the first 3 months and I was well and truly organised by the time he transitioned to the cot.
There are a handful of essentials you will need for your nursery, which once sorted, you can decide on the other features you would like to include. If your budget is tight, remember your little one will not be that concerned about anything other than you, so don't feel pressured into having the most stylish nursery possible. Here is a list of the main items you should prioritise for your nursery:
Once you have all of your essentials, you can pin away and get inspired by the thousands of gorgeous nursery designs out there. I have found and shared some of the nursery ideas I love and they are all gender neutral, so they will be appropriate for your little boy or a girl.
This room designed by @distantrelative has embraced the trend for bold and colourful wallpaper. All other features in the room are neutral so the wallpaper can take centre stage. The pug is a winning touch.
I adore the Rose Gold homewares trend and the cot in this nursery is simply stunning and takes centre stage in a room full of gorgeous items. . The cot is available from @incy_interiors.
Still quite popular is this version of Scandi, utilising a colour combination of grey, white and accents of natural timber. This room features so many beautiful aussie brands, so check out their feed on Insta.
This gorgeous light filled room is accented with pops of various shades of industrial blue. Texture and warmth has been created with throws, cushions and a shaggy rug.
Tapping into the trend of bringing the outside in, Mum Deb has created this woodland themed nursery for her son Noah, featuring majestic mountain decals on the wall.
This room stopped me in my tracks. Featuring a large animal print, its the sophisticated neutral version of a jungle theme. The giraffe wallpaper is from se3.co.nz.
