3. Get plenty of storage
It’s amazing how many things a baby needs. With beautiful storage pieces, your nursery will be the perfect place to introduce your little one to a lifelong love of great design. Understated and playful, the Plyroom Panca Bambina Toy Box is equally useful for storage as well as toddler-friendly seating.

4. Fun elements that can grow
Fun elements for your nursery, like the Cattywampus Play Teepee, looks amazing with its beautiful lace detailing and can be used as your baby grows into a toddler. Bringing the magic back, whether you’re a child or an adult, play tents create the perfect space for little ones to unleash their imagination and reach their highest potential.
5. Create a comfy area for parents
In the baby’s first year at home, mums and dads tend to spend a lot of time in the nursery, whether it’s getting them to sleep or watching over them. Encourage nap time for both baby and parents by incorporating seating like the Incy x Hobbe rocking chair. A clean silhouette and squared sofa shape, this chair is a departure from the traditional wingback nursing chair commonly associated with nursery rooms. With its gentle rock and tall supportive back, the chair radiates a 'low-profiled' glamour.
