Floral Inspired Nursery Ideas

Whether you’re expecting a boy or girl – or are keeping it a mystery until the birth – you’ll know that a lovingly curated nursery will inspire their imaginations.

As a classic style of decor, floral inspiration can be taken literally. They can also feature soothing pastel colours, to provide a relaxing space where little ones dream of adventures are yet to happen.

For those who want to create a garden-like space, we say start with reliable yet stylish pieces of furniture – before adding floral-inspired accents.

Your little petals will spend their first few months in an enchanting space, thanks to the following pieces that’ll create a blooming marvellous nursery.

1. Tutti Bambini Verona 3 Piece Room Set

Tutti Bambini Verona 3 Piece Room Set

Now here are three key pieces of furniture that your ‘new arrival’ will certainly need in their new nursery.

Tutti Bambini have combined a shaker style cot, chest of drawers with removable changing top and light up double wardrobe together in one high-quality New Zealand pine and MDF bundle.

You’ll definitely appreciate the ample storage space they provide for nappies, blankets and clothes. Plus, their cosy cot will later transform into a toddler bed and daybed – lasting them as they grow up to 6 years old.

Available in the boy and girl-friendly ‘White & Oak’ or ‘Dove Grey & Oak’ colourways, both options provide a stunning – and practical – canvas for floral decor accessories.

2. Leander Matty Changing Mat

This portable Leander changing mat (50x70cm) is a world apart (in quality and design) from many alternatives out there.

Available in traditional blue and pink, as well as neutral options – we’d recommend choosing ‘Sage’ to suggest a hint of greenery.

It’s 100% waterproof and remarkably easy to clean with soap and water, ensuring happy days – as well as good hygiene – both in their nursery and on exciting ‘trips out’.

Also, the slip-resistant base, raised sides and foam-like moulded PUR material makes for a safer and comfier changing experience – even if they do like to wiggle.

3. Cam Cam Copenhagen Sleeping Bag in Pressed Leaves Rose

Cam Cam Copenhagen Sleeping Bag in Pressed Leaves Rose

Add some foliage and floral accents against the previous products’ calming solid shades, for a sleep zone that channels these baby-friendly motifs.

We know that little ones will appreciate being ‘snug as a bug’ in their own sleeping bag – complete with a long zip for ease of changing. Comfort is assured given the soft jersey lining, organic cotton and Oeko-tex polyester fabrics.

Simply select the correct size, 0-6 months or 6-18 months. Or, why not buy both so they can continue to be warm and wrapped up for longer (in their cot).

It replaces bedding and carries a 2.1 TOG rating – perfect for indoor rooms between 18-21 degrees Celsius.

4. Levo Baby Rocker in Beech Wood with Hibiscus Flower Cushion

Levo Baby Rocker in Beech Wood with Hibiscus Flower Cushion

Go ‘tropical’ with this exquisite hibiscus rocker – a novel way to create the floral theme.

Ideal for babies between 0-7 months old, until they can sit up unaided (3.5 to 9 Kg) (7.7 to 19.8 lbs), this rocker is a delightful way to encourage them to bounce during playtimes. Unlike other rockers, this model follows your newborn’s movements. Yet, it can also soothe them to sleep.

Charlie Crane commissioned this floral print from a Parisian artist, so even the most ‘discerning’ of babies will enjoy sitting in this easy-to-transport recliner.

It’s so inviting, you’ll surely wish that it came in bigger sizes so you could appreciate its premium craftsmanship – including the varnished beech multi-plywood frame and (washable) non-toxic 100% cotton cushion covers.

5. Cotton Ball Lights Dirty Rose LED String Lights

It’s often the accessories that truly make a themed nursery – and these fair trade (handspun) cotton ball lights are no exception here.

Comprised of five different colours, they’ll add to the floral theme whether they’re switched ‘on’ or ‘off’. Worrying about cord lengths is a thing of the past thanks to the USB fitting which can be attached to a powerbank (not included), and the cable length is 150cm (378cm in total).

The LED lights mean they won’t overheat either, so you can leave them on – especially given the A+ energy rating.

Simply set up and then you – and your baby – will be mesmerised by their soft glow.

6. Bloomingville Macrame Hanging Planter

Add some nature to your ‘little un’s’ floral-inspired nursery, by literally bringing the outdoors into their space. You won’t ‘be-leaf’ the difference!

As well as helping to create a healthier environment, your favourite plant can now sit proudly in the attractive cream macrame holder – based on traditional craftsmanship.

Constructed from a wooden pole and beads – as well as 100% cotton cord – this brings a retro yet ever-so current boho vibe into any nursery.

Why not have two or three scattered around the room – you can hang them from the ceiling or a nail in the wall.

7. Oliver Furniture Children's Wall Mounted Bookshelf & Storage Unit

Oliver Furniture Children’s Wall Mounted Bookshelf & Storage Unit

This bonny bookshelf by Oliver Furniture can be dressed to add botanical interest to any nursery.

Hang your new macrame marvel planter (introduced above) on one of its four wooden hooks. Then, there are the three shelves that are ideal for displaying books, teddies, string lights and flowers.

At 60x51cm large, there’s plenty of room to display these special items – with a generous depth of 19cm.

A superb finish has been created with a high-quality white lacquer treatment on sustainable timber. Plus, clean lines equal easier cleaning should you knock over the talc bottle.

Why not attach it to the wall above your child’s dresser or changing unit – to keep precious trinkets out of curious little hands.

Adorn your baby’s nursery with pops of greens and pinks alongside floral prints that’ll fascinate your ‘bud-ding’ adventurer from day one. Neutral hued shelves and furniture are the perfect canvas for plants, baby sleeping bags, changing mats and more.
