Green roots stir from their slumber of snow. The sun touches the trees and fills them with hope and promise. Yes, spring has finally arrived! A new season means new life in the corners of Weepawoo, and the pending due date of your own new arrival! As the frosts thaw and you prepare for your bundle of joy, feel inspired by the seasons when decorating your little wonder’s room.
We’ve put together a handy guide that will help you celebrate springtime in your baby’s nursery, guaranteed to brighten the days of your precious little munchkin as you welcome him or her into the world.
A Walk in the Woods
When you think of spring the imagination tends to stretch towards tall, luscious trees and walking through a forest with the leaves stretched high above you. The warm embrace of Mother Nature can calm even the crankiest tot, so bestow a little natural charm on your nursery with safe and sturdy wood-based furniture.
East Coast Nursery’s Fontana Room Set is a simple and homely three-piece collection, featuring a dresser, wardrobe and cot bed with a washed-out finish. The elegant design leaves room for all sorts of style combinations, whilst generous storage space and the cot’s adaptable base height will blossom with your baby at every stage of their development.
However, before baby is brave (and big) enough to set up camp in their nursery, watch them sleep soundly by your bedside in a Moses basket that’s becoming of your little spring miracle. The Natural Wicker Snooze Pod is an enchanting sleeper for your bright young thing in those early weeks and months.
For a similarly rustic centrepiece to the room, we recommend the Olli Ella Teepee Rug in pink or blue, perfect as a soothing base for playtime. The contemporary triangle design is made up of tiny balls of felt that will cushion any oopsie-daisies, whilst remaining oh-so light to the touch for baby’s wanderings as your budding explorer begins to crawl.
Bring your nursery to life with fresh, vibrant colours that capture the spirit of your spring theme. A few hints of green will give your little wonder’s room a splash of colour. This underrated colour is perfect for setting a unisex colour scheme. So if you’re waiting for the stork to bring you a surprise instead of finding out babies gender, you can’t go wrong with green.
We love the Animal Parade Wallpaper from Hibou Home; bathed in a cool mint green with quirky animal figures dancing and playing music, it’s guaranteed to give a light and open feeling to even the smallest of spaces. If you want to spark your child’s imagination and embrace a dash of wild fun, look no further than Olli Ella for a canvas that’s full of life and magic. The Under the Same Sky design will give baby a glimpse of the world they’ll soon explore.
Of course, all this curiosity will mean your bundle of joy will be roaming around in no time at all. So create a space where they can play and explore with a few items of mini me furniture. Pair your mint green walls with an adorable Flexa Furniture Kids Stool, available with matching tables to help you sow the seeds for a special childhood.
Your Sleeping Lamb
Sleep is so important to your tyke, so make sure every naptime leaves them feeling as fresh as a brilliant ray of morning sun. Make baby your own little lamb with the Luxury Hooded Baby Towel by family-run designer Clair De Lune. This soft marshmallow towel will be a plush rub-down after a nice warm bath that will set them up for peaceful snoozes and sweet dreams.
As you tuck them into their crib, keep your angel delight cosy with a Bunny Ears Blanket that’s a scrumptious reminder of spring. Two adorable things together – bunnies and babies! Lined with interlock jersey, this luxury blanket is guaranteed to pull mummy and daddy’s heart strings!
Gently cajole your munchkin to sleep with an activity cushion that will bring the outdoors in. The ABC Activity Cushion in ladybird design is a fun and playful head rest that will certainly send them off in gurgling delight. With a captivating array of bells and materials to divert attention in the waking hours, it’s a must-have accessory for rest and play.
Spring Into Action
There’s an art to keeping your spring miracle entertained, so introduce some seasonal toys into baby’s inventory that are bound to leave a smile on your little one’s face. Find a furry friend who will wipe away tears in our Moulin Roty Rabbit Comforter, and bring the sounds of the forest to your nursery with Moulin Roty’s Children’s Tambourine. True to style, it has woodland images ringed in a lovely pastoral pattern. Who knows – you could have a musical genius on your hands, so you better get practising!
As your spring chicken begins to find their feet, teach your tot the art of balance with the Lambert Infant Rocker. This gorgeous, fluffy animal design is just waiting to be baby’s newest woolly friend, and will be the focus of months of happy memories as your baby blossoms before your eyes.
So there you have it, friends – everything you need to create a spring themed nursery with bundles of charm. Birth, children, newness . . . this is at the core of what makes spring so special. Kitting a room out with these enchanting items will glue the magic of the season to your baby’s earliest memories, giving them the best start in life as you welcome them into the world.
