Nursery decor is not just about decorating your nursery, it is about choosing nursery decor accessories that have a practical purpose and baby linen that is functional as well as beautiful.

Decorating a nursery can seem overwhelming, as there are so many beautiful nursery themes and colour schemes to choose from.

So before deciding on your linen and décor accessories for your baby's room,it's best to decide on your nursery theme.

Most themes can be adapted for either a boy or a girl, and are also available in neutral colour schemes.

Our blog is full of useful advice and great tips to help you create your dream nursery!

Feeding and Bonding go hand in hand

March 13, 2012
Feeding time is a special moment where Mom gets to provide Baby with one of his fundamental needs: nutrition.
 
It is also a time to cuddle Baby close and to lovingly admire all those little things that make that little human being so special: the curl of the toes, the crinkle of a tiny nose, tiny hands and feet so perfectly proportioned... this is real bonding time!

New Moms are told that having a comfortable chair to sit in while feeding is important to ensure feeding time is a relaxed and soothing activity that both Mommy and Baby will enjoy and benefit from.

There are many chairs that can be adapted as a suitable feeding chair; some rather costly, and others quite affordable.
Whatever your choice, see your feeding chair as an investment that will be utilised not just for Baby number One but for many more years to come. A dual purpose piece of furniture that will suit both the nursery and the home, where it can be moved to a TV room or lounge once it's primary function is complete.

The Rocker Glider chair is just such a chair. 
 With its 3 adjustable reclining positions, matching gliding Ottoman, solid wood construction and durable, fully washable cushions; it is a sure winner!



This fabulous piece is available in Mahogany, Maple and White. And you have the option of Cream, Coffee or Pink cushions. So once it has done its time in the Nursery it can be easily coordinated in a family room.
 
Rocking is comforting for Baby, and helps Mom to relax too - especially if Baby is a little cranky :-)
With the Ottoman at the perfect height to ensure Mom's legs are elevated just right, feeding time becomes a time of special bonding and relaxation.

Happy Bonding!

The importance of layout when decorating a nursery

October 31, 2011
Decorating a nursery is an exciting time for parents!

There are many factors that should be considered when you start out choosing the furniture and decor for the nursery, and we are going to cover the most important ones here.
 
Nursery furniture should not only be durable, functional and safe, but must also fit into the room you have chosen as your baby's room.

The size of the room plays a very important role in selecting the right nursery furniture
As beautiful as large sleigh cots and oversi...

Themed Mosquito nets on promotion

October 4, 2011
Summer is here and with those warm balmy nights comes the invasion of the Summer nuisance. The mosquito!

Not only does the mosquito’s incessant buzzing interfere with a good night’s sleep; but their bite leaves an itchy, irritating welt long after these little blood suckers have had their fill.

Babies in particular are more vulnerable to these pests, as they do not have the satisfaction of scratching an itchy bite, which can leave Baby irritable and niggly.

A mosquito net over Baby’s...

Wall murals for a nursery

August 30, 2011
Spring is such a special time for me :-)
It is as though the world is waking from a long hibernation and shedding it's drab coat.

It's a season of new beginnings, sunshine, blossoms and grassy meadows.
Your Spring nursery can represent all these wonderful fresh elements too.

My favourite colour for walls is green - soft, fresh and reminiscent of rolling hills and dewy knowles.
Add to this backdrop two or three frolicking little lamb murals, or some budding branches of a painted tree in one corner...

Themed nursery vs neutral nursery

August 26, 2011

When it comes to decorating your nursery, it is really all about personal preference, and not to much about what the current decor trends are.

A nursery is not just a place where your baby will sleep, it is also the space that you will spend most of your time in, with bathing, dressing, feeding, play and relaxing.
So take this into consideration too, when deciding on the theme and colour scheme of your nursery.

If you love the traditional blue for boys, pink for girls, then go with this, as you ...

Fresh decor ideas for Nurseries

August 18, 2011

As endearing as the traditional pastel colours are for a baby nursery, bright and bold is fun and is sure to see Baby's room through to toddler years and even beyond.
Using green on large areas like walls is the perfect palette to create a bright and uplifting nursery for both a boy and a girl.

Chartreuse is a lovely shade of green that speaks of fresh meadows and sunny days, and will be beautifully complimented with any of the hues in the warmer spectrums (orange, red, yellow) for a nursery ...

Swaddling your baby

August 2, 2011
When I had my first baby (who is now 23 years old :-) ) I was shown by the sisters at the maternity home how to swaddle her.
This process at first looked to me like some kind of restraining method, and I wanted my baby to be free to kick and enjoy her new found open space... but I soon realised the purpose of swaddling and it became a favoured bed time ritual for all my babies right up until they were 3 months old.

Swaddling your baby has a number of benefits, the most important one being that ...

Soothing Your Colicky Baby

March 26, 2010

Hi Moms

I thought I'd share this fabulous info with you all.

Although I was fortunate not to have colicky babies - all 4 of them! - I know that these techniques would have been just the thing for my youngest (Gabby), who was one of those cranky, restless babies.

"Colic" - the word is just about enough to make every mom "aah" with either personal experience, or sympathy for friends who have suffered alongside their babies during those early evening and night-time episodes of inconsolable crying. ...
