Planning and decorating the nursery is one of the exciting milestones of the pending arrival of a new baby, but it can often feel a little overwhelming too! We’ve put together a collection of décor and must-haves from around the world, and each one can be found in our beautiful online boutique.   


Scandinavian's have the art of cosiness just right with their concept of “hygge”. Having this at the centre of a nursery will bring contentment and a peaceful night (we can’t guarantee a full night of sleep though!). Creating a pretty and comfortable room is just perfect for a nursery.  Snuggle up with this soft grey sparkle star cushion. No comfortable space is complete without a luxurious rug, like this statement bear rug that is ethically handmade from organic lambswool.  

Choose a centrepiece 

Choosing a statement piece can then help to bring together the overall theme of a room. This can be something as simple as a cushion, or a larger item. It may be a beautiful mobile, like our felt swan mobile that could then be paired with a mix of blushes and pom poms. Or one of our unique animal heads to create a jungle or an explorer theme.

Don’t forget the essentials 

In all the decorating excitement, don’t forget the basics. Storage is a big must – babies and small children do often acquire a lot of things! Storage doesn’t have to be boring, and it can slot in perfectly to a nursery and be a talking point in its own right. Our fun pom pom storage bins or this sweet lamb print storage bin make are a great place to stash away toys or laundry. We also stock a range of sleeping essentials like this meadow print sleeping bag or this spot print Cot sheet.

Go Wild!  

We are big fans of an animal theme here at Just Add Milk, and we have most favourites covered. Our quirky wall-mounted animals heads are such unique pieces that are full of character. They are each handmade under ethical guidelines using sustainable practices. If you love these but want a bit more practicality, then our animal clothes hooks will tick both those boxes. They each have a sturdy hook that is perfect to hang coats, bags or dressing gowns, whilst also bringing a fun and quirky feature into a room. Include a ferocious friend like this lion cushion, or bring in more of a forest theme with this woodland mobileFinally, add an educational touch with our metal vintage-look animal alphabet print. 

Finishing Touches 

Many of us have special keepsake items from our own childhood, and we have such a gorgeous selection of teddies that your little one can treasure forever.
