Steph Sharples, Creative Manager at Silver Cross comments “On the road to parenthood, there are many moments you’ll never forget, and designing your baby’s nursery is one of them. It’s a chance to get creative and ready yourself for bringing your little one into the world. You’ll be in there just as much as your baby, so it’s important you really connect with it and feel comfortable in the space.

These instagrammable décor styles inhabit much of the traditional nursery with print wallpaper and animal themes, but also go cohesively in the modern home with natural, earthy colours. They’re all a great bet for any new mother looking for cool, soothing tones this year.”
