8 Nursery Decor Essentials

Interior Stylist Magdalene Liacopoulos from The Bebe Style Co. shares her favourite nursery décor pieces from The Tot

Deciphering what is a ‘need’ versus a ‘want’ is always a challenge when selecting décor for a nursery, and the trick is to find a balance where function and practicality meets style. Here, I share my picks and why they should be at the top of your shopping list…

1. Oli Ella Neutra Lidded Basket

There’s no denying that I am passionate about storage solutions, which is why this elegant storage basket is at the top of my list when it comes to décor essentials. Why? It’s a cost-effective solution to home organization that has a myriad of uses, from stashing toys and books, bedding, and even laundry. I honestly believe you can never have too many.

2. Babyletto Lolly Three-drawer Dresser

Since you now know how wild I am about storage, I will always recommend investing in a dresser that can double as a change station.

3. Petit Pehr Stripes Away Crib Sheet + 4. Louelle Quilt

Good quality bedding tops my list as one of the must-have, non-negotiable items. The cot and bedding is the most used item in your nursery, which also means the space needs to be safe and comfortable for your baby. I would always recommend selecting 100% cotton and ensure that you never skimp on quality.

5. Petit Pehr Noah’s Ark Mobile

Because…would it be a nursery without a mobile? I love that this colourful hand-felted design by Petit Pehr featuring a turtle, elephant, lion, giraffe and a whale.

6. Babyletto Presto Acrylic Bookcase cart

Reading plays such a big role in both yours and your child’s life from birth until, well, what can seem like forever! When working with clients, I always recommend incorporating a reading area in the room, whether it’s a stand-alone bookshelf or something fixed to the wall. What I love most about the Babyletto bookcase cart is the added function of wheels, which means this beauty can live in the nursery during baby phase, and then as your baby grows, it can be carted (pardon the pun) to the playroom.

7. Lorena Canals Braided Rug

Nothing achieves comfort quite like a soft, plush rug for the nursery. I especially like this soft braided rug to help finish off a reading area. This is an example of where style meets practicality with this 100% cotton, machine washable rug. Swoon!

8. Little Lights Cloud Lamp

Dressing your walls is the finishing touch to a room and when it comes to art for the nursery there really is nothing more cute (and useful) than this beautiful cloud night light. Made from 100% natural pinewood, this high-quality children’s night light is as beautiful as it is strong and durable.
