5 Reasons Why You Should Choose A Scandi Style Nursery

5 Reasons Why You Should Choose A Scandi Style Nursery

____________________

After scrolling through hundreds of Pinterest pics - or maybe thousands if you’re like me! - you’ve narrowed it down to your top three nursery styles a) girly and pink b) a safari theme and c) Scandi, but you can’t decide which one to go for. Before you pull straws, here are 5 reasons why we think you should go Scandi, baby…

1. Gender Neutral
-
Decorating a nursery for the first time is so exciting, you're buzzing every step of the way from creating a Pinterest board and picking colour palettes, to the cliché of being that pregnant woman covered head to toe in paint, wearing denim dungarees. Talking from experience, the second time around isn’t quite the same, not only do you have a baby growing inside you, but this time you have a toddler hanging around your ankles asking for raisins. I mean let's face it, putting a wash on is a mission in our house let alone decorating a bedroom and so as you can imagine, it doesn’t quite have the same vibe! The great thing about a Scandi nursery is it’s completely gender neutral so there’s no need to repaint for baby number two. 
-
If you're patient enough to keep the sex a surprise, having a gender neutral nursery is essential - after all, no one wants to be painting with a newborn baby in the house. A Scandi style nursery means that no matter what surprise you get, the room will work.

2. Long Lasting
-
A Scandi nursery will suit your little one from birth but will see them right through to teenagehood too as it's a completely blank canvas for the newest fad and their latest obsession - from dinosaurs to Drake. That means less DIY, less dust and more money to be spent on holidays!

3. The Modern Home
-
If you have a modern home, there's nothing worse than walking into a bedroom and for it to not feel like it's part of the house. The great thing about a Scandi nursery is it will be inkeeping with the rest of your stylish home. Plus, when they want to bring some of their things from their nursery downstairs, nothing will look out of place - Scandi style items will look great no matter where they are in your home.
-
Also it's worth remembering, most people are not living in their 'forever house' when they have their first baby. Chances are you will want to move at some point and a Scandi style blank canvas will not put off buyers like a pink unicorn room might.

4. Calming Space
-
A nursery has two main functions - somewhere for your little one to feed and a place for them to sleep. Bright colours stimulate and let's face it, that's the opposite of what you want when you’re trying to get your little one to nurse or go down at bedtime. White walls, muted greys, neutral tones and natural woods create a calming environment for your baby.

5. You're Not Searching For A Needle In A Haystack
-
It’s fair to say that Scandi has hit the big time in the UK and as a result, you no longer have to ship from Denmark or Sweden to get the look. There are some amazing shops that sell Scandi style stuff right here in the UK just like us - and if you can't find something you're looking for on our website then get in touch and we will hunt it down for you!

Totally agree, best style for the whole house not only the nursery, simple and clean. Love this post xx

Louise Herington

Love your post!! All looks so serene, you are making me broody for more babes!!

Louise Herington

Great post! We have this play gym and baby Eve loves it. So you clearly don’t need garish primary colours to keep kids entertained

Louise Herington

You’ve inspired me!! My 14 month old still shares my room, but I now have lots of ideas of how I want her nursery to look. Thank you! X

Louise Herington

What a lovely and well written blog post! Perfect advice for new and current mums 🖤 We had a neutral nursery for our first baby (despite knowing he would be a boy!) and I have just added to it and adapted it for my second and third babies 😍 Beautiful and timeless xx

Louise Herington

What a beautifully written article and such practical advice. I think you are spot on. X

Louise Herington

So well written and great advice! I get too caught up in too many different styles that it’s hard to focus sometimes. This is a great blog to get ideas from. X

Louise Herington

Really informative and such beautiful photos. Very inspiring.

Louise Herington

Love this post. Definitely love the look of scandi inspired neutral nurseries. Completely agree with the calming aspect too. We’ve gone for a cross between scandi and girly 🙊!

Louise Herington

Love this – neutrals make so much sense. Fabulous photos

Louise Herington

So true! We’re all for Skandi – and if I had to do it again I would although it is kind of taking over the house! It’s so good for gender neutral and little touches can be added when baby arrives.
Low maintenance too as white walls and neutrals so no need to rush round matching colour shades. Definitely agree on the calming aspect too, loads of products in your shop to compliment too. So glad you’re here! 🙌🏼

Louise Herington

Such good advice, and gorgeous photos!! Every single one of these nurseries is more stylish than my own bedroom, I feel a new Pinterest board coming on 😂

Louise Herington

Everything looks ace!! Need scandi for baby number 2 🤩

Louise Herington

Everything looks so amazing! Love the blog x

Louise Herington

I couldn’t agree more! Wish I had read this article when I was pregnant with baby no.1 (.. or even 2!!). But alas, mine are now 8 & 11 and it was bright colourful (over stimulating) mats, mobiles and all the rest I’m afraid. And of course, the inevitable re-decorating as they grew as well!
A scandal theme would have been so much more zen for both baby and me!! As a mom, you spend so much time in your baby room … feeding, calming to sleep and playing as well! This then evolves into reading …. so yes! A wonderfully clever nursery style …. for both baby and mommy too!

Louise Herington

Truer words were never spoken! We’ll be going Scandi style and OATW all the way for baby number two xxx

Louise Herington

Love this, great advice! Every little one should have a stylish and calming Scandi nursery, instead of the typical pink or baby blue themes that you end up redecorating constantly.

Louise Herington

Such a great read! I was always nervous when guests would come round and there were toys scattered everywhere, but with the Scandi style toys I’ve bought from OATW I’m not embarrassed when it’s messy… they match my style!

Louise Herington

I absolutely loved ur blog, I love the scandi style, so calming and fresh, like u say relaxing for when the little one is trying to sleep, iv bought lots from Otis and the wolf and have been so happy with every single thing I have bought, great, keep the blogs coming

Louise Herington

Brilliant read! I’m totally sold! It looks so Classic as well! Absolutely beautiful!
