Your new baby is on its way. And whatever amount of free
time, design aesthetic and spare money you have, you pour it
into getting a home ready for them. And obviously top of the list
is the nursery. Their very own special space.
Your first instinct is to Google it. You just want some ideas. But
then you’re inundated with 5000 of them. Once you’re drawn in,
you spend hours that turn into days browsing, pinning images
and imaging how they would look in the room. But eventually
you get confused and frustrated. It’s a huge job; I give you that.
So here are my 5 top tips to give you a super easy starting point
for the baby room decor.

Tip No 1:
Stick to neutrals, you can’t go wrong. Now I’m not saying
paint your baby room beige and stick it with wooden furniture
like the rest of your house. Do the baby pink or the aqua blue
underwater theme if you love that but keep the colours minimal,
light and calming. And if you’ve got colours on the wall, keep
the furniture neutral. Too much colour might clash and be
jarring to the eyes and the senses, when all you and your baby
need is some shut-eye.

Tip No 2:
Continuing with the thought above, keep it simple. When the
baby comes, the empty room will be drowning in toys, clothes,
diapers, feeding equipment and other random things that just
seem to surface. What you need for your décor to do is to
provide a lovely backdrop to all of that chaos, not add to it! A
red wall with a bright purple couch might look fab in a lounge
somewhere but it might not be the best combination for when
both you and your baby are tired and just need some peace and

calm. Or when your baby is crawling around, and keeps
bumping into awkwardly designed furniture that looks fabulous.

Tip No 3:
I cannot emphasize this enough. All the storage you can provide
will fall short. It just gets filled up. So be practical and build lots
of it to begin with. Wardrobes, chest of drawers, cabinets –
anything that is simple and basic and fits your space. Don’t look
for small, unique pieces for storage. Go smart, simple, and big!
Apart from that, do buy a variety of small storage boxes and
trays that you can spread out around the room and use as and
when you need it. You will thank yourself later. A box full of
diapers, wipes, bottom cream and tissues next to the changing
table; a laundry hamper to collect the million dirty clothes that
are produced through the day or even just a simple tray to keep
your phone / cup of tea / baby’s bottle next to you when you’re
feeding.

Tip No 4:
Buy or order an amazing comfy couch, chair, rocking chair, or
sofa (if you have the space) for yourself. There will be a lot of
sitting or reclining with a tiny baby – feeding, putting them to
sleep or even just holding them and playing. If your body is
happy and comfortable, you can begin to relax and enjoy your
baby!

Tip No 5:
Lighting plays a crucial role in any room, especially a baby’s
nursery. Provide lots of bright lighting on the ceiling for
playtime, but enough lamps and smaller lights for various
purposes. A soft lamp instead of the bright overhead LEDs
when you’re feeding, a night light for when you need just that
little bit of light to do the midnight diaper change, or even an

option to turn down the overhead lights to tell your baby its
bedtime!
Follow these tips, but beyond that, use your imagination. And
decorate to please your heart – it might be pale pink and gold
hot air balloons on the walls, a monotonous gray and white
nursery or an all white space where the baby and its myriad
things can provide the excitement!
