5 Amazing Storage Ideas for your Baby’s Nursery
Expecting a baby is one of the most precious and exciting adventures any mother or father-to-be will experience. From the moment you learn you’re pregnant, life has irrevocably changed, and you need to start preparing for the pitter-patter of tiny feet. Whether you’re in your second or third trimester, you’re probably thinking about how to decorate your baby’s nursery. From the colour scheme to the style, there’s so much to consider. At Piccoli, we love a shabby chic style nursery featuring pastel coloured walls, lined with pleasingly old furniture and slightly worn looking furnishings. These finer details will make your baby’s nursery feel homely, after all.
Babies require a lot of equipment – parents-to-be are often surprised at just how much a baby needs. From the essentials such as nappies, clothes, towels, washcloths, muslin cloths, baby changing mats and bedding to toys, books, dummies and mobiles, you’ll need a safe place to store it all.
Every nursery needs a bookcase, and we’re in love with this beautiful Eliza Bookcase. Inspired by 18th Century France, this french style bookcase is the perfect solution for storing your baby’s precious first books and tales. Available in antique white and french grey, the subtle finish of this bookcase gives it that shabby chic aesthetic that fits perfectly into any style of nursery.
