For a homely finish, include plenty of cosy, soft and textured furnishings. Adding woolly blankets, faux fur throws, embroidered cushions, and patterned rugs are an excellent way to embrace texture. Balance it out with neutral coloured curtains with a plain design.
When bringing your child’s nursery to life, it’s important to make sure that it’s an enjoyable space to play and sleep in. Create a fun interior with animal and cartoon prints, as well as adding whimsical details such as handmade toys and ornaments.
Soft Colour Palette
When decorating, think long-term. A soft, pastel colour palette will not only blend in with most furniture and soft furnishings, but it’s also timeless which means the room will grow with your child, saving you time and money redecorating later. Shades of lemon yellow, mint green, and blush pink are all fantastic choices.
