From dabbling with colours to introducing natural elements, we’ll show you how to transform your baby’s room into a Scandinavian sanctuary that both you and your teeny one will adore. So, grab a cuppa, sit back and let’s dive into the magical world of Scandi style nurseries!

Work With a One-of-a-Kind Colour Palette

Would you believe me if I told you that you could paint with all the colours of the wind in your Scandi nursery? Scandi style often leans on neutral tones like whites, greys, and beiges. But who says you can’t add some jolly splashes of colour?


What about softly introducing pastel shades like baby blues, blush pinks, or hushed greens? These tender hues can add a pinch of fun while keeping the overall look clean and simple. Plush pastel bedding, cushions, or rugs could give your little munchkin a snug space to dream.

Feeling a bit daring, Mama? Why not experiment with bolder and brighter colours like a radiant yellow or a sassy coral. You could paint a sunny statement wall or pick vibrant accessories like curtains or storage baskets. These lively splashes of colour will pop against the neutral tones, creating a stunning contrast that just can’t go unnoticed!


Have you ever thought about mixing and matching contrasting colours? Why not pair a soft grey with a mustard yellow, or a powder pink with a deep navy blue. These unconventional combinations can spin a visually fascinating nursery that stands out.


And remember, colours can set the mood of the room. Soft blues and greens can whisk in calmness, whereas warmer tones like oranges and reds can sprinkle in a dash of coziness. What vibes are you hoping for?


So, don’t be afraid to step outside the traditional Scandi colour palette and have fun with colours. After all, these are the delightful little surprises that make your baby’s nursery truly one of a kind!

Minimalism Is Your Friend

When we say Scandi, we mean simplicity, clean lines, and functional beauty. If you embrace minimalistic decor, you’re already halfway to creating your dream Scandi nursery.


Let’s talk about the furniture and decor. Remember to keep it clutter-free and opt for sleek, functional furniture pieces. A convertible crib or a changing table with built-in storage could be just what you need to keep things simple yet practical.


And don’t forget about the decor! Less is more here. Pick a few standout pieces that match your aesthetic. How about a cute minimalist wall print from our shop? Or a well-chosen collection of toys? These can add charm without overwhelming the room.


By embracing minimalist decor, you create a beautiful, functional space that is undeniably Scandi. And remember, mama, it’s the unexpected details that add magic to any room.

Choose Innovative Furniture Pieces

As you venture into the world of furniture shopping for your nursery, let your imagination soar. Look for standout pieces that not only serve a practical purpose but also uplift the overall design.


Ever thought of investing in convertible furniture that grows with your child? A crib that transforms into a toddler bed or a changing table that can double up as a dresser? These multifunctional pieces not only save you space but will also ensure your nursery keeps up with your growing bub.


Or how about furniture with clever storage solutions? A crib with built-in shelves or a dresser with drawers can keep clutter in check, creating a calm and orderly nursery.


And don’t be afraid to mix and match materials and textures in your furniture choices. Natural wood elements alongside sleek metal or soft textured fabrics can add depth and intrigue to the space while keeping it in sync with the Scandi style.

Let's Bring In Some Nature

Creating a Scandi nursery isn’t just about the colours and furniture. It’s also about bringing in the charm of nature. Incorporating natural elements can enhance your Scandi sanctuary and create a serene environment for your little one.


How about introducing natural wood elements in your furniture choices? Natural wood not only adding warmth but also connects you to nature, a vital part of Scandi design. Light-toned or whitewashed wood could give your nursery a fresh and natural appeal.


Plants and greenery can not only bring life to your nursery but purify the air, creating a healthier space for your little munchkin. And let’s not forget accessories and decor made from natural textures and materials, like woven baskets, rattan accents, or knitted blankets. These can add visual interest and a touch of coziness.

Your Personal Touch Matters

While creating your Scandi nursery, remember to add your own personal touches. Your baby’s nursery should reflect your personality and style.


How about hanging some sentimental pictures or prints, like family photos or images from your travels? Handmade items like a knitted blanket by a family member or a DIY mobile made from natural materials can give your nursery a unique and personal feel.

So, are you ready to jazz up your nursery with some fab Scandi style? Not only will it knock your socks off, it’ll turn your baby’s little corner into a tranquil Nordic haven. Play around with unexpected colours, go for pared-back decor and funky furniture, weave in some natural stuff, and sprinkle in those personal touches that say “this is us”.

You know, there’s a Scandinavian saying “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, so let that be your guide. Let your nursery shine with simple elegance, acting like a magnet for calmness. So, go on, let your creative juices flow and whip up a Scandi nursery that’ll wow not just your tiny tot, but anyone who steps foot in it. Because remember, it’s the little things that leave a big impression.
