Few things top the joy that comes with welcoming a bundle of joy into the world. For mamas-to-be, planning and decorating a nursery is certainly a highlight but it’s easy to get intimidated by the variety of pieces and trends out there. As the experts in creating beautiful spaces throughout the home, we love lending a creative eye to those wanting to do a little nesting before baby arrives. With our House of Mangar family consisting of several moms, we know what to look for when it comes to planning the ultimate nursery. Here are the pieces we think every nursery should have…
A timeless cot
There are some items in a nursery you should never compromise on, a cot is one of them. We suggest selecting a timeless piece that will last for second and third babies or perhaps even become a bit of a family heirloom. If you’ve got a cot that could use a bit of love, why not consider a refurbishment by our team? This will breathe new life into a sentimental piece and allow it to shine for years to come. If you can’t find a cot that suits your dream nursery, why not make one? Our team have years of expertise in manufacturing furniture by hand. This ensures spectacular craftsmanship as well as beautiful results.
A great feeding chair
Choosing a feeding chair should be based more on comfort than on aesthetic appeal. Although, it has to be said that it’s possible to get the perfect balance of both. Whether you’d prefer a rocker or a plush wingback, our experts can help you choose the ultimate chair for your nursery. If you’ve got a treasured one at home, why not get it recovered in a fabric that you love? It’s a special way to repurpose whilst honouring a beloved heirloom. If you’re not going to have a bed in the nursery, an ottoman is a nice addition for those times where you’d love to put your feet up.
When it comes to making a nursery a comfortable space, furnishings that lend a plush, luxurious touch deliver warmth and comfort for both little ones and mamas alike. Think layering rugs, thick throws and even soft fabrics for swaddles and cushions. These will help bring a nurturing and calming feel into the space.
Whether it’s a bold feature wall, an interesting mobile or even a quirky piece of artwork on the wall, something special and unique will set your nursery apart. This is what makes a space truly special and not just something you’ve replicated that you’ve seen online. If you can, try and add personal touches like family photos, pictures of scans and perhaps even trinkets you had as a child.
