Planning a Scandinavian NurserySeptember 20, 2017
When you have a baby, you can feel like clutter starts to take over your house.
As our Umgås staffer starts dreaming about baby, she’s also dreaming about her fantasy nursey, where everything has a place and stays that way (isn’t that a sweet concept?). Like we did with our dream Swedish bedroom, we’ve decided to create a dream nursery filled to the brim with Scandinavian products – from floor to ceiling.
Starting with the basics, we like the very modern, Stokke Sleepi crib in the natural wood color, complete with a set of Hanna Andersson fitted sheets (we’re partial to the Happy House style). From IKEA, we’d get this super simple changing table to match, and we’d throw a cute Korbo wire basket on the bottom for storing diaper supplies.
Since our dream nursery is rather large, we’re going to indulge in this Normann Copenhagen high-back chair, and we’d add a footrest by Design House Stockholm. This combo would be perfect for nursing and lounging with the babe.
To store odds and ends, we’d add this awesome storage unit from A2 Designers. This would give plenty of room for baby books, toys, shoes and everything in between – all organized in a stylish, unique way.
Shifting down to the floor and décor. We’d stick with a colorful, albeit neutral, toned down palette, like with this pale turquoise rug from Pappelina. We also like a simple, monotone rug, like this one from IKEA.
For a little warmth and to add some hygge to the space, we’ll add this Design House Stockholm throw to our chair nook to make baby snuggles even better.
To add another pop of color, we’re liking the look of these green and white lights from bsweden. We’d install a cluster of three or five in the middle of the nursery at staggering heights to create a cool focal point.
To round out the room with some baby gear staples, we’d throw some of these adorable wooden toys from Brio on that storage shelf.
