LET A LITTLE LIGHT SHINE
“Lighting is important because you will require different task lighting at different times,” explains Justine. “A good table lamp will help with story time and having a decent overhead pendant will soften the room instead of a harsh oyster light.”
Be careful that cords are out of reach of small children and unused power points are covered.
Remember, it’s best to opt for warm globes in a nursery, so nothing too stark or cold.
Avoid LEDs or energy-saving globes as the light may feel too bright for your little one. Block out blinds are essential. “I recommend installing both blockout roller blinds and a soft sheer curtain which can be coloured, patterned or add a pompoms trim for a cute effect,” Justine says.
“Having both will allow you to filter and control the natural light during the day and also provide a nice dark restful room for sleeping at night time.”
A neutral colour scheme from Nest Design Studio keeps the space flexible.
