Decorating baby’s first nursery is a rite of passage for any expectant parent. Questions about paint colours and crib comforters are paramount. You want it to be perfect – after all both you and your partner are going to be spending a lot of sleepless nights in there.
Cue a bunch of woodland critters and some seriously cute soft furnishings. What could be more perfect for your little one? Get ready to channel your inner Snow White, because this look is might just just be worthy of a fairy-tale.
If you don’t know what you’re expecting (who doesn’t love a surprise?) this look is a great gender neutral option. Simple, modern and bursting with colour, transforming your little one’s nursery into a forest is all about creating a playful space inspired by the great outdoors.
It’s the feature creatures that really bring this look to life. Keep British wildlife in mind when it comes to picking out cuddly toys and cushions. Think friendly foxes, lovable hedgehogs and oh-so cuddly bunnies. These little critters not only make playtime all the more fun, but also add a sense of effortless charm to any nursery.
A palette of earthy tones and autumnal hues – rich ochres and warm umbers with mossy greens and pumpkin accents – is perfect for creating that magical woodland feel. By keeping key pieces of furniture as well as the walls, fixtures and fittings neutral, you’ll be able to use these strong colours throughout the nursery without it feeling cluttered.
Creating a forest without any trees is tricky. We’ve used our Birch Woodland Wall Stickers to give our nursery a proper folksy feel. Using woodland-inspired prints and fabrics is another way to bring the outdoors in. Cushions and lampshades are a great, subtle way of introducing more patterns.
Wall stickers are an easy way to bring a room to life: just peel, stick and go. With our inspiring range of nursery decals, there’s no need for wallpaper or stenciling. You can transform your baby’s first room into anything from a forest scene as we’ve done here, to a starry night or underwater world.
If you’re unsure of how to put up a wall sticker, we’ve created this handy video tutorial to help you every step of the way.
