Nursery Decor: Get inspired to create a beautiful room for you & baby!

Ready to talk nursery decor? Along with shopping for maternity clothes, decorating your baby’s nursery can be one of the most fun aspects of being pregnant! It’s a fantastic way for you and your partner to prepare for baby’s arrival, and a fun project to tackle together. You can let your imagination run wild and create a beautiful haven for you and your little one. This room will be your baby’s primary environment (and you and daddy will spend a lot of time here too). So it makes sense to put in a little effort when it comes to nursery decor!

If you’re looking for a little inspiration to help you get started, we are here to help!


Nursery Decor Themes

Your baby’s nursery is the perfect place to let your creative side take over, and it can look really effective to decorate around a theme! The options are endless:  You could create a fairytale palace for your little princess or a jungle adventure for your little monkey. Opt for nauticalaeroplanesouter spacefairies or even your favourite Disney characters! The great part is, that you can do as much or as little as you like: Your nursery decor is totally up to you!

Gender Neutral Nursery Decor

If you’re keeping  the sex of your baby a surprise (or if it’s twins!) it’s easier than you might think to create a gender neutral nursery. Choose a neutral base colour like white or grey and incorporate pops of colour like orange, green and yellow. Or you could choose a nursery decor theme that works for for boys and girls: Try woodland animalsadventures and explorers or alphabet!


A Magical Place for you and Baby

One of the main things to keep in mind with nursery decor, is that this is a place where you will spend a lot of time! When baby arrives, you will be in and out of this room all day long and throughout the night as well. Our top tip is to make sure that you love the nursery furniture you choose – and to pick a comfy arm chair for late night feeds! While you’re at it, why not invest in some comfortable nursing dresses and nursing nightwear or one of our stylish changing bags to make your life a little easier through those first few months.

Rose Quartz & Serenity | Meet the Pantone Colours of the Year 2016

The fashion powers that be have spoken: The Pantone colour of the year 2016 has been announced and for the first time ever there’s two of them! This year Rose Quartz and Serenity are set to team up and take centre stage.

Used as stunning standalone shades or combined as a killer pastel pairing, these colours are designed to promote “mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses.”

Set to define design trends for the year to come, from stylish scatter cushions to lipsticks, winter coats and adorable baby clothes; here are a few of our favourite ways to work the shades of the year…


Rose Quartz & Serenity for Mummy

When it comes to styling the Pantone colours of the year for pregnancy, we have plenty of fashionable options to choose from. Dressing for this trend is all about layering up separate pieces in block colours of each shade. Try pairing our Blush Lace Maternity Cocktail Dress with our Powder Blue Natasha Cashmere Blend Coat. Or why not style our Chevron Print Maternity Dress with pink shoes, accessories and lipstick for a fresh spring look. You could even work the trend at bedtime by slipping on our Blue Polka Dot Nursing Nightie with your favourite fluffy pink slippers and dressing gown!



Rose Quartz & Serenity for Baby


Of course it’s not just you who’d look gorgeous in these pretty pastel shades…. Check out the Diana Award Collection – a beautiful new range of designer baby clothes available exclusively at Seraphine, in glorious pinks and blues and featuring the stunning Diana Pastel Tartan. Fall in love with pretty tartan baby dresses, soft cashmere cardigans and smart coats. And melt over adorable fleece-lined baby booties and charming tartan bonnets.


Rose Quartz & Serenity at Home

When combined in just the right way, Rose Quartz and Serenity harmonise in a room to create a space that’s calming and nostalgic with a surprisingly sleek and modern finish. They make a stunning choice for the nursery, and work wonderfully together in kitchens and bathrooms. When incorporating these shades into your home, Interior Designer Jared Sherman Epps suggests: Let one colour take the lead and allow the other to act as an accent to create a serene but striking balance.”


Rose Quartz & Serenity in Beauty

This daring colour duo is sure to be a big hit in the beauty world. Sephora have already released their Pantone Universe inspired range complete with lipsticks in both creamy rose quartz and unexpected serenity. Both shades make for beautiful nail polishes, rose quartz is the perfect blush for a fair complexion, and we predict that this trend could even herald the return of retro blue eyeshadow.

Choosing a Luxury Cot for your Newborn

One of the most exciting projects you will undertake during pregnancy is creating your baby’s nursery. A quick look online will reveal the huge range of beautiful nursery furniture designs that are available. There are plenty of options out there, but your home décor and personal style will give you an indication of your preferred taste.



If you’re a fan of period décor you’d love The Marseille Cot. Choose baby bedding that is simple, yet rich in quality to match. Metallic wall paper would complement this cot perfectly, and you could even add a feature wall with a mural of baby’s name or an inspirational quote. We love these fairy tale stickers from Bambizi.

Seraphine recommends: The Woven Printed Maternity Dress



For a feminine look, opt for the Chelsea Luxury Cot. Choose soft furnishings in heavy silk and a neutral colour palette. The Layla Cot bedding features layers of soft fabric and will be a perfect choice for this cot. A lambskin rug will add a soft and delicate ambience to the room, and you can add a touch more glitz and glam with a generous lace canopy.

Seraphine recommends: The Cerise Dot Maternity Dress



The Belgravia Upholstered Cot is an ultra-functional option that’s perfect for small spaces. It’s compact and includes an integrated drawer for storing essentials – it even converts into a sofa when baby has grown out of it. Choose a space saving nursing chair to match like the Elias Nursery Glider Chair, which is compact, comfortable and luxurious.

Seraphine Recommends: The Striped Nursing Shift Dress



Clean and sturdy with an air of sophistication, the Eaton Cot is perfect for the contemporary nursery. Choose on trend baby bedding to go with this cot – our Chevron Retro Baby Bedding would be perfect. And if you are sticking with the geometric theme, you could finish off your nursery with one of our new geometric style rugs.

Seraphine recommends: Knitted Zig Zag Maternity Dress

This week on the blog, we’re handing you over to the experts at Gigi Brooks to let them introduce themselves & explain what they do best…..


10% off





















At Gigi Brooks, our vision is to make a child’s early years truly magical and memorable. We believe that nursery and children’s furniture should be made to last a lifetime, like the way they used to be made, charming generation after generation of children. We offer exclusive pieces that cannot be found anywhere else and ensure that each and every design is completely tailored to create an interior masterpiece.


Planning your Nursery

We are always eager to advise clients on how to find their perfect look for baby’s nursery and we’re passionate about creating truly magical spaces for babies and children. We begin a nursery design by considering the essential items that will need to be included in the room, and then build the design around this.

Nursery essentials


















A baby needs somewhere to sleep, feed and be changed, so a crib, nursing chair and dresser are what we consider to be nursery essentials. Once these have been established, we then discuss with the client the designs that they have seen and liked, and the feel they want to create throughout the room.

For example, the design can be tailored to suit an ultra-modern feel, complete with sleek furnishings and minimal accessories, or alternatively to achieve a plush, regal look with everything from sumptuous silk crib skirts, intricate woodwork and luxurious crib canopies, we can suggest the ideal pieces for every design.


The Latest Trends

Up in the air





















We’ve seen some gorgeous key trends coming through this year, and we particularly love the trend for the whimsical hot air balloon accents that can be found in a number of our designs. Perfect for both boys and girls and easy to incorporate through the use of well-placed accessories, we think this is a trend that will be sticking around for a while yet.

We’ve also seen a number of clients looking for the ever-classic and sophisticated gold accented nursery, a style statement offering unbridled opulence and extravagance.


Gold nursery





















We believe it’s important to ensure a design has longevity and really works with the rest of the home. The nursery should be seen as an extension of the home because, as a parent to a newborn, there will be plenty of time spent cherishing those special memories in baby’s beautiful room.
