DECIDE ON A THEME ... OR, THEN AGAIN, DON’T
A lot of people decide to theme their nursery based on the child’s gender but interior designer and kid’s room specialist Belinda Nihill from Nest Design Studio says you don’t necessarily have to be so literal.
“Theme can be a scary word,” she says. “Images of full-on Winnie the Pooh nurseries might flash through your mind but it’s important to remember having a theme can give the room a sense of flow and tie a space together.”
Belinda says it can be helpful to think more generically in terms of a theme, using ideas such as nautical, woodlands or wild adventure.
“That way you can incorporate the idea into the design but it doesn’t mean that you use those elements on everything in the room.”
