How to Create Your Dream Boho Nursery?

Yippee! You're pregnant and now filled with excitement and anticipation for your beautiful baby to be! There are so many exciting things to think & dream about... what will your baby sex be, who will they look like (Mum, Dad, Nanny, sister?), how will your baby's little personality be reflected, where will I give birth, what names could we call he / she?! Arguably one of the most fun processes to turn your excited mind to is the planning of your little one's Stylish Nursery!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am a sucker for a beautifully put together Boho Nursery . . . I love how it can incorporate vintage pieces, an eclectic mix of colours as well as your own person style.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I think of Boho I immediately think of macramé, beautifully coloured & layered textiles, a touch of rattan furniture & of course lush greenery!⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've put together a few tips that I utilised in the setting up of my own Babies' Nurseries in my favourite Boho style....⠀⠀
1. Start by talking to your Mum / Grandma... ask if they kept anything special / handmade from their own baby nursery and see if they'll be happy to hand it down to you - look out for the eclectic pieces that show your own personality and style. Nothing beats the sentimental feeling of having these kind of pieces in your own Baby nursery. It's also a great idea to ask them what is necessary vs what isn't to help with your Nursery planning.
2. Next add the Furniture pieces that you'll base the style of Nursery around. Think raw & natural materials like rattan, bamboo & naked timber (ie. no lacquer) - this will give your Nursery a natural feel and also be healthier for baby too.

3. Add character & style to the walls with interesting wall hangings and rattan shelves to display your precious keepsakes to come!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't be afraid of colour! Choose 2 main colours to add pops of vibrancy and personality to the room. On trend colours at the moment are emerald green, clay, ultramarine blue... any of those vibrant colours that are conjured up when you think of Morocco!

5. Bring nature into your space with a mix of greenery & botanicals . . . By incorporating these elements you create a space that feels fresh and calm. It's also beneficial for your baby by adding fresh oxygen to their space - peace lilies, figs and other dark green leafy plants are known for their high oxygen generating properties.
6. Add the finishing Nursery touches via different textiles throughout the space . . . cushions, throws, rugs, bedding, linen & furnishings. This adds softness to the space and brings the whole look together so don't forget these important final touches! A Nursery can look a bit naked without them.⠀⠀⠀⠀

That's it! Most of all have fun with the process & don't forget to start early! Around 20 weeks pregnant is a perfect time to start planning.... don't leave it until 36 weeks - you don't want the process to feel rushed or stressful - keep it fun by starting early and slowly gathering considered pieces.⠀⠀⠀
