Twinkle, twinkle, little star… so you’ve read the baby books and you’re familiarising yourself with those long-forgotten nursery rhymes. You’re kitted out and keeping cool in stylish maternity threads and the bump is bumpin’ along quite nicely. The last (and most exciting) thing to get done on the list before bubba arrives is decking out the nursery. Enter MyList, an awesome gift registry that just makes getting organised for the new arrival that much easier and a whole lot of fun.
The basics are covered: the crib and the changing table are essentials, of course. But the room needs a spot of personality and character – it’s little one’s first bedroom, after all! Julie, the founder of MyList, shares some of her fave items for you to decorate the space and make it gorgeously cute.
The Rice Changing Colour Rabbit Lamp from BabySouk does exactly what it says on the tin – changes colour and provides soft lighting for those all-important night feeds. Got a name picked out already? DdBabies Spoil Me Gift Basket will embroider it on to a baby blanket (surely this will be the thing your tiny tyke will covet the most!), a bodysuit, a sleeping bag and more.
Pimp out the crib (ha – see what we did there?!) with the awesome Cloud Paper Mobile… your cuddly one will get used to counting clouds overhead instead of sheep to nod off. If you’ve got a night-time roller or a crawler, the Anastasia Cot Bed Bumper from The White Company is definitely more of an essential than a decorative item – although this one is super elegant – and will offer up soft padding in case your mini is a bit too energetic.
Is bambino just refusing to go to la-la land? Pop them in the Blue Bouncing Chair from Theophile & Patachou so they can hang out in the living room and watch you eat that last slice of cake – oops, we mean watch the world go by.
Before your littlie is old enough to use crayons and create their own Banksy on your beautifully cream-coloured walls (believe us, mamas, it’s a rite of passage and will most definitely happen), this sophisticated Camel Montage Art from Peas in a Pod will add a pop of colour to a typically pastel-shaded nursery. Plus, we’re in the Middle East; your tot’s first word is likely to be “camel”, not “cat”.
So there you have it: from everyday essentials to charmingly delightful pieces for a chic nursery full of style and sophistication, these are some of Julie’s top picks for baby’s first bedroom. And there’s a whole lot more where that came from – just head to MyList and have a browse – trust us, you’ll have so much fun playing at being an interior designer and baby will have the most beautiful boudoir around.
