Scandi nursery design ideas
Scandinavian design provides the perfect inspiration for a light, bright and clean* nursery that will suit your little one from birth until they insist on sticking up magazine pages of celebrity crushes (although teenagers probably don’t do this any more do they!?). Anyway, I am a huge fan of Scandi design. It has become incredibly popular too in recent years. However, there are so many products out there now, that you don’t have to follow the crowds with an obligatory mountain mural and geometric grey teepee. Here are some of my favourite Scandi nursery picks for 2018…
*If only in design terminology. Escapee raisins and are difficult to avoid from in my experience.
1. Mini dots wall decoration in copper from Ferm Living
At first glance I thought this was (probably pretty pricey) wallpaper but actually they’re stickers and cost only £12 per pack. They are also removable so they won’t do any damage to your wall. It could also be a fun way to include your child in their room decoration. And which child doesn’t love stickers!
4. Feather pendant lamps from VITA
These aren’t marketed as children’s/nursery lamps, but I think they would be perfect for a nursery as they are so fun!
They’re made from goose feathers and paper and come in lots of sizes. They would look brilliant on their own or in a collection. Prices start from £49.
5. Cork table from OYOY
These tables are from the Danish brand OYOY and could be used as tables or seats or both.
6. Silhouette cushions from Ferm Living
Soft furnishings such as cushions are a brilliant way to bring in colour to a room. I love these ones from Ferm!
7. Round shelf from Ferm Living
This round shelf is perfect for children’s books or even those little toys and ornaments that need a place to be displayed!
8. Balloon wall lamp by Globen Lighting
Mood lighting is so important for a children’s room. This wall lamp, designed by Patrick Hall for Globen Lighting, is gorgeous and will give a relaxing soft glow for reading bedtime stories. The lead and switch are the balloon’s string too, so no tricky electrical wiring required, just plug in!
9. Coat hook from Design Letters
This bold and modernist coat hook is from Design Letters using the font designed by architect Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. You can’t get much more Scandi than that!
There’s a hidden hook behind the plate for a coat or rucksack. It would look great in the nursery, or you could even create a wall in your hallway with letters for all the family.
10. Toy basket by Ferm Living
This is an absolute essential for a nursery! Perfect for lobbing scattered toys into at the end of a play session.
This one is 40x60cm, but also comes in a smaller size for £43
