5 Nursery Styling Tips to Design the Nursery of Your Dreams

Styling your nursery is one of the biggest – and most enjoyable – tasks you’ll do before your baby arrives. And for a room that you’ll spend so much time in with your baby, it’s important to take the time to get it right.

Crafting the perfect nursery goes beyond aesthetics. Nursery styling is also about comfort, safety and creating a special space for your baby. We share five tips for how to decorate a nursery, along with nursery decor ideas to help you create the nursery of your dreams.

1. Start with your colour palette

Modern nursery colours very much align with colour psychology, favouring cool colours that tend to create a more soothing and calming atmosphere. Gentle pastels, like blue green and pale yellow, along with neutrals, help to set the scene for sleep. Your baby may have other ideas about sleep but at least you’re giving them the best chance with a calming environment! To help choose your ideal palette, order a free iL Tutto fabric swatch today!

When you’ve decided on your colour palette, you can style each element around this. Start with your walls and paint them in your base colour. Or opt for wallpaper with subtle patterns to introduce some fun or new colour into the room. From there, you can add accessories like rugs, curtains and bedding that tie in with the colour palette to create a cohesive and harmonious nursery design.

2. Choose a stylish nursery chair

Your breastfeeding chair is one of the best investments you’ll make in your nursery. In the first weeks and months with your baby, you’ll spend hours in your nursery chair. Mums who’ve shared their breastfeeding stories with us say that their nursery chairs have been their haven during sleepless nights and endless feeds. As much as your nursery is a place for your baby, it’s also the place you’ll feed them, watch them sleep, read to them and change endless nappies. It needs to be a place where you feel comfortable and supported with the right nursery chair.

In the iL Tutto range, you’ll find a chair to suit any nursery interior design. Designed in Australia, our nursery chairs feature premium fabrics and quality construction.

The Paige Recliner Glider Chair in Vanilla Bouclé offers a high back for easy recline. The premium bouclé introduces texture and comfort into the room along with a 360-degree swivel base and a spring-loaded recline.

3. Include flexible design elements

Babies grow so fast. Before you know it, you’re switching out the cot for a bed and packing away the changing table. Designing your nursery with flexibility in mind can save you both time and money as you adjust to the changes ahead.

Consider removable wall decals or framed prints that you can easily update to more age-appropriate styles down the track. Updating cushions and bedding is also an easy way to switch up the style.

4. Consider your storage

Babies come with a lot of stuff.
From clothes to toys, nappies, books and other things you collect along the way. When you style your nursery, think about incorporating different storage elements that will ensure everything is neatly tucked away.

Open shelves can display books or toys while bins and baskets are an easy option for tucking away smaller items. You can also select these items to match the room’s colour scheme or theme and easily update them as your child’s needs change.

5. Make it personal

Introducing personal touches into your nursery styling can make such a big difference. Whether it’s a family photo, a handmade quilt or artwork made by siblings, these sentimental elements will help to create a nurturing and loving environment.

While your child’s room will eventually become more of a space for them, in those first years, it’s a space you both spend lots of time in. It needs to be cosy, comfortable and practical as much as it is stylish. Personal touches add warmth to the room and make it a welcoming space for you both.
