Natural, simple, pared back. It’s a decorating style that’s catching on as an antidote to our super-busy lives and one that’s made for the nursery. If you want to create a nursery with a sense of calm for baby, keep it simple with a range of natural materials.
Nursery furniture and decor items crafted from wood, wool, and rattan are all widely available in the shops. When mixed with a neutral colour pallet of whites, browns and soft grays it creates a wonderfully calming space, perfect for settling tired little bubs.
Here are some beautiful natural nursery rooms to inspire you, along with some suggestions if you’d like to create a similar feel.

Natural nursery inspiration
As your baby grows, introduce pops of colour easily into the natural nursery with accessories. The image above from The Animal Print Shop shows how adding just a few bright cushions and a coloured mobile can subtly change the feel of the room.
Layering textures make a room look comforting and warm and this lovely natural nursery featured on Domino is a good example of how that works.
Mixing natural shades
Mixing different shades of natural materials in a room lends a warm, inviting feel to the space. This nursery from Cheetah Is The New Black shows how to make it work.
A bassinet is the perfect starting point for a nursery design, and we’ve found a stunning selection of rattan bassinets that will add the requisite earthy feel to baby’s space.
