“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.
