1. Au Natural

Little Green Sheep Natural Knitted Moses Basket with Mattress & Stand

Autumn and nature go hand-in-hand – leaves, trees, pumpkins and crisp air are all synonymous with this time of year.

It makes sense then for natural materials such as rattan and wood to feature prominently in your autumn-themed nursery.

The cane webbing in the front panels of the Vox Canne Nursery Set gives it a textured, boho look that’s seriously autumnal.

The Natural Knitted Moses Basket from Little Green Sheep is ideal for keeping young babies up to 6 months cosy and close by throughout the season.

2. Dark Wood

If you prefer dark brown tones, check out the Leander Classic Baby Cot in Walnut, which transforms into a toddler bed when your autumn baby starts to blossom.
