10 Bright + Brilliant Finds for Baby’s First Bedroom
It’s a rite of passage to spend hours on Pinterest when you’re an expectant mum isn’t it? I’ve spent many an evening pinning away amazing finds for Little Hotdog number 2! Here’s a round-up of fave finds for a bright, brilliant, gender-neutral nursery:
Confetti wall decals
Celebrate their arrival with colour with these fab confetti dots to pop around their room. A great way to get older kids involved with decorating too! Can be added to walls, furniture, windows, mirrors - the lot. Available from the Little Baby Company via NotOnTheHighStreet.
Giraffe Side Lamp
How quirky and charming in this side lamp designed to look like a giraffe. Available in a range of colours to match any nursery colour scheme. I love that grown-ups will appreciate its character when baby is too tiny, but as soon as they’re toddlers they’ll fall in love with it as well! It could be the only light fitting in the house that gets given a name... Available from Leanter on Etsy.
Bright wooden screw clothing hooks
Add a handy place to hang up toys, hooded towels, baby cardigans - whatever you need a little extra space for! From The Little Boys Room via NotOnTheHightStreet
Animal Noises nursery print
Original prints make such a lovely additional to any kid’s bedroom! YoYoStudio do a lovely mix of colourful and monochrome prints to choose from. See their collection via Etsy now.
Space Crib Hanging Mobile
A cool hanging mobile they’ll love beyond babyhood. If you love intergalactic style, you may want to see our Space Bunny winter hat from newborn size too! Available from independent felt toy maker Zoo Toys.
Funkis House Shelf
You can never have too much storage when you’ve got kids! How amazing does this house shaped shelf look by Ferm Living? It’s a play space and a toy shelf! Can be placed on the floor as a dolls house too.
Colour burst rain drops wall decals
More bright wall accessories this time from The Lovely Wall company. What’s not to love about these whimsical cloud stickers that make even rainy days look bright?
Flexa Yellow Cot
When they’ve outgrown their crib, this simple yet striking yellow cot from Flexa would be great for a girl or boy’s room. Available via Smallable - a super stylish family concept store worth a browse!
Balloon Print Baby Bedding
If you want to do better than plain white sheets, these gorgeous balloon print sheets from Avery Row are worth a look. 100% cotton and beautifully packaged in a pillow case storage bag.
Etta Loves Muslins
Muslins were such a lifesaver first time round and this time I’m delighted to have Etta Loves designs ready to go! These gorgeous extra-large animal print muslins can be used for so much, great to keep in the nursery for feeding sessions or to lie down as a sensory play mat. See them up close at Etta Loves.
