How To Decorate A Nursery

@Thefashionbugblog, aka fashion blogger extraordinaire, Laura Wills, gets asked as many questions about her daughters’ nurseries as she does about her epic wardrobe choices. Here, she shares how to create the perfect sanctuary for your little ones:

I have two daughters, Mila and Anoushka, and their rooms are probably my favourite rooms in our home. I love spending time with the girls in their rooms. Even though they are very young, I wanted to create timeless, tranquil spaces that we could spend a lot of time in and that they could grow with. Mila’s nursery is very neutral and has a rustic feel to it, whilst Anoushka’s is a bit more girly with the statement wallpaper, but both are spaces that I absolutely love.

My top tips for creating nurseries are:

– Pick a theme or a colour palette. Whether it’s an animal theme (Mila has lots of giraffes in her room) or a colour palette (I kept Anoushka’s wallpaper in mind when looking for her furniture), think about the nursery as a whole so that everything ties in together nicely. A mood board is a great idea – you can add fabric swatches to it and then get an idea of how the finished room will look.

“Keep it simple. You don’t need to get too much to actually fill the nursery.”

– Find some special pieces for the walls and add wallpaper. I have two quite different nurseries: Anoushka’s is very girly with Nina Campbell wallpaper which I love. Mila’s is more neutral but with lovely prints and statement animal heads on the walls. I get most of my prints from Etsy and the animal heads are from Nubie kids.

– Store the toys in wicker baskets. I have so many wicker baskets and trunks around our home as I find they help to keep everything looking tidy. You can literally just throw everything in them without having to spend much time tidying. I get most of mine from The Basket Company.

– Get personalised pieces. I love my personalised baskets for the girls from Edit.58 – they add so much to a room. You can also get personalised cushions, both Finer London Monogram and Calf&Co do great pieces.

– Keep it simple. You don’t need to get too much to actually fill the nursery – there will be enough toys and books all over the place, so I think the simpler the better.
