A Nursery Inspired By Nature

If you’re expecting a bundle of joy this spring, why not add a spot of nature to your nursery?

After all, we’ve all been nature-mad over the past year. From daily walks to weekends in the countryside, natural life has been a source of positivity for many of us. And since spring marks new natural beginnings, it seems fitting to celebrate your new arrival with a nature-inspired twist.

So, whether you’re creating a themed nursery or just after a touch of natural flair, these wild and wonderful pieces will do just the job…


Go wild with animal pattern

Nothing says ‘nature’ like a loud and proud animal print. Jaguars are kings of the jungle and the Levo Baby Rocker in Beech Wood (below) will make sure your little one takes centre stage in your nursery.

With a lively jaguar print, this rocker will add an instant pop of colour and fun to any nursery. And whether it’s a one-off or part of a safari-themed nursery, this cosy rocker will soothe your little one to sleep in no time.

Add a touch of tropical print

If you’re ready to embrace the wild side, look no further than the gorgeous Lorena Canals Tropical Washable Rug.

With a fabulous leaf and fauna print, this rug simply oozes jungle style. And when your little monkey gets a little too adventurous, you can simply pop this rug into the washing machine to remove any stains.

While it looks the part in a nature-inspired nursery, it’s also free from toxic dye and made with sustainable 100% cotton. So along with creating a nursery inspired by nature, you’re doing your bit to help the planet, too!

Stick to natural materials

For a nursery inspired by nature, embrace naturally-sourced and handcrafted pieces. Imagine you’re setting up on a blissful remote island and piecing together a nursery with the materials you can find… except the hard work is already done for you!

Not only is sustainably-made furniture great for the planet, but it’s also great for sticking to a nature-inspired theme. Take a look at the stunning Bloomingville Natural Cane Sia Shelf (below). Crafted with natural cane, this shelf wouldn’t look out of place in a jungle hideaway!

Embrace wooden features

When it comes to picking out nursery furniture, stick to pieces that feature neutral and unfinished wood. This will help you create a stripped-back feel that highlights the beauty of nature.
