If you’re searching for a nursery look that’s relaxing with a hint of fun, then we’ve got just the thing. We’ve created our own, modern take on the traditional ‘woodland’ theme using neutral grey tones, subtle pops of colour and playful animal additions. Here’s our tips for creating your own neutral woodland nursery.

Decorate it

Start by picking grey shades that work in your space, but be conscious of how much light there is in the room. We used Grey Hints from the B&Q Colour range and added texture to walls with a fun wallpaper like this subtle bear paper from LivettesKIDS at Etsy.

A pop of colour

Create some cool storage solutions with this Olli Ella Vintage Suitcase

Create some woodland warmth with an accent colour. We’re loving warm rust and orange tones, like the colour of this retro Olli Ella Suitcase. Used as storage, it makes a great feature in a neutral room.

Add the animals

Bring in a woodland feel to the nursery with carefully chosen products

You can’t have a woodland without the animals. We love subtle options like this stylish Rose in April Joseph Bunny Nightlight and the House of Disaster Bear Lamp. Whilst The Bonnie Mob Bunny Blanket, with grabbable ears is perfect for night time comfort.

Warming wood

Add wood to create a woodland theme

Create texture with wood. A neutral cot is a great centrepiece of the nursery. Playfulness can be added with durable wooden toys that look great as decorative features in the room too. The Plan Toys Foldable Rocking Horse is the perfect fun option. Simple and space saving, it’s a modern classic.

Soft layers

Introduce blankets from The Bonnie Mob and cushions to create a soft nursery look

Finish the look with complementary blankets and cushions. We love the rust trimmed Mama Designs Cellular Blanket and Cloud Sleeping Bag. Add a soft print into the mix too with the Avery Row Grey Patterned Blanket.
