How To Create An Oasis of Calm In Your Baby’s Nursery

Every parent knows that when it comes to decorating and furnishing the nursery for your new arrival, there are some important decisions to be made. It’s an exciting time and no doubt you’ll be looking to invest in quality products that are impeccably designed to give your baby the special (and safe) haven they deserve.

We’re huge fans of Australian baby brand, Boori, they’re experts when it comes to impressive nursery furniture. In fact, their hands-on founder oversees every single aspect of product development to ensure each item’s unique and premium style, quality and design is as robust as it can be. It’s no surprise that over one million parents worldwide have looked to Boori to help create a calm, natural and serene space for their children.

Starting from a completely blank canvas, we’ve put together our wish-list of nursery interiors to help bring your baby’s sleeping sanctuary to life.

Boori’s Oasis Oval Cot

We love the Boori Oasis Oval Cot, one of their hero products. If you’re considering opting for an alternative cot design, the Oasis Oval Cot is guaranteed to seal the deal to become the centrepiece of your baby’s nursery.

This uniquely curved cot design has been crafted with sustainable solid wood providing a beautifully rounded shape. Smooth yet delicate spindles circulate the cot for increased airflow. It incorporates the essential features of a standard cot including two base heights for easy access to baby, and it easily transforms into a toddler bed.

That’s not all; this oval-shaped cot can double up as a cosy sofa with no guard panel required. We love how this product is built to evolve, so you’ll want to keep it in your home for many years to come.

Boori’s Oasis Oval Cot is finished in an eco-blend bio paint made from renewable plant extracts and comes in three natural shades for a premium feel. Choose from beech, white or pebble – a shade to suit every nursery décor.

For the ultimate finishing touch to your cot, take a look their beautiful Boori Halo Net & Stand for the dreamiest nursery on the planet.

Oval shaped cot bedding

Boori understand the importance of only the softest fabrics coming into contact with your baby’s skin. When it comes to bedding for the Oasis Oval Cot, you’ll want to take a look at their matching bedding range.

This quality mattress is made from nursery grade foam, which is ideal for allergy sufferers. We love that it has a machine washable top layer, and can be wiped clean with warm water and a little mild detergent if needs be.

It’s always advisable to invest in a machine washable mattress protector to help keep the cot mattress in its great condition. This oval fitted option is waterproof, consisting of breathable layers with a cotton cover for a safe, soft and comfortable sleep.

Lastly, you’ll be needing the elasticated fitted sheet made from 100% cotton, to provide your baby with another soft and cosy layer to rest on.

Built to last furniture

To complete your furniture essentials, it’s well worth browsing Boori’s take on the essential nursery chest of drawers. Deep and fully extendable, these kids’ drawers are perfect for storing your little one’s daily necessities.

The chest has a removable changing station so you can use this for nighttime changes for as long as you need to – simply take it off later on (usually advised when baby start to roll!). There are neutral shades of barely white, pebble and mocha to choose from.

Match this chest of drawers with a solid full size wardrobe, designed in a classic style to suit every nursery theme. There’s plenty of space for hanging up clothes and storing all those wonderful gifts that you’ll be using in weeks and months to come. There are two additional drawers, super handy for neatly folding away blankets, bedding and towels.

We also recommend investing in a solid bedside table. This will get plenty of use from day one. It’s the perfect place to pop your baby monitor and any sleep aids that you’ll want to use, together with a nightlight that will come in handy during night feeds.

Finishing touches

With your furniture fixtures now firmly in place, it’s now time to pay attention to the overall style of your baby’s nursery. Calming,  tones and plenty of soft, natural light are key to creating a place of zen for your new arrival.

Your little bundle of joy is bound to have plenty of soft, snuggly toys to explore and the classic toy box is something they can treasure forever. Boori have really done these justice with the design and level of detail that has gone into crafting their sustainably made boxes. They’re truly charming and can easily slot into any nursery layout.

Children will love opening this box (complete with the all-important slow release lid) to pull out their toys and keepsakes. We think the classic toy box is a brilliant statement piece for siblings to share. It’s so beautifully made it could also become an heirloom passed down among generations thanks to its strong and sturdy build.

Space saving ideas for your nursery

With the toys back in their box at the end of the day, head over to the bookcase for their favourite bedtime story. We all know the importance of reading and how a story at bedtime is a key part of any nighttime routine (usually bath, bottle, book, bed!). Boori’s classic range of bookcases offer ample space and shelves to effortlessly house every Julia Donaldson book ever written and then some!

If you’re a bit limited on space, we highly recommend looking at the Bookcase Hutch – it can be fitted on top of the chest of drawers we mentioned earlier, the two pieces of nursery furniture complement each other perfectly.

Wooden toys for the nursery

Have a look at Boori’s stunning range of neutral-toned playroom accessories to perfect your nursery. Many of these pieces come flatpacked so you can assemble as and when they are ready to be used.

The Tidy Rocking Horse, made from solid Australian Araucaria wood is a classic that will put a smile on every child’s face. What we really love about this is that it can double up as a bench too!

As your child starts to learn, sitting at the table is key. Boori’s sturdy range of chairs, stools and tables with minimalist design will complement any nursery or playroom style. Our top picks include the Tidy Stool and Tidy Table!
