Whether you’re expecting a new addition to your family or planning to revamp your toddler’s space, creating a warm, inviting and stimulating environment in your nursery is crucial. 

Consider factors like theme, colour, whether you can DIY any nursery decor, and toy storage solutions for your space. If you’re looking for decor that won’t outgrow your child, consider an enduring, gender neutral palette to take your toddler into their teens.

It’s important to consider furniture that can be child-proofed. We also recommend a comfortable armchair or occasional chair, rocking chair or pull-out sofa bed for those late nights spent soothing and nursing your little one to sleep.

When is the best time to start decorating a nursery?

Most parents-to-be start decorating a nursery around the second trimester (the fourth month of pregnancy). You’re likely to have more energy than in the first trimester, and you’ve got ample time to decide the room layout and which furniture, homewares and bedding you need to order in advance.

However, every parent’s timeline can vary on personal circumstances, so the best time to decorate your nursery depends on what feels right for you.

Which colours best suit a nursery?

These days, colours for a nursery go well beyond traditional pinks and blues. Choose hues that foster a calming environment, like soft pastels, or opt for neutrals like grey, beige or white and add pops of colours with decor and toys. 

You could even consider patterned wallpaper to create an engaging environment that stimulates your infant’s developing senses. 

Ultimately, the key is to create a welcoming and nurturing space for your little one that also caters to your personal taste.
