Hotlist: It’s play time in the nursery

Powered by automated translation

Mix charming decorations, in calming greys and creams, to create the ideal nursery.

1. Evening wrap

Nothing says cosy quite like a sumptuous blanket, and we love this speckled fleece version from Zara Home. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a family movie night or time spent snuggled up on the sofa, and its synthetic fibres make it easy to clean.

2 Mischievous play

Your child is sure to love this craftsy looking raccoon from Nest for Kids. The non-toxic dyes used means it’s safe, while the doll’s soft feel will make it truly irresistible.

3 Horse play

This charming rocking unicorn by Marcel Wanders might be more decorative than functional – technically, it’s sized for an adult rather than a child – but we simply adore it. The special-edition piece features a combination of solid wood and white embroidered leather. It’s almost guaranteed to transport even the most level-headed of grown-ups back to their childhood.

4 Sweet dreams

The Gonatt cot by Ikea is an ideal choice for a baby’s first sleeping space. One set of bars is removable for when your child is old enough to climb out on their own, while the pretty yet simple colour palette is easy to match.

5 Starry night

Boys and girls alike should be inspired to dream big by these decals from Koko Kids the perfect addition to a nursery or child’s room. The black colour scheme makes them gender neutral, while the separate stars means you can choose where you place them.
