We’re so smitten we’re seriously considering a pilgrimage to their stand alone store in Somerset…
Anyone in love with the clean lines, clever design and soft hues of Scandinavian style should head straight to this beautifully curated website that sells everything from stunning beds and cots by Oliver Furniture to tonal ball pits that look like they should be on display in the Guggenheim Museum.
Basically, everything on this site is beautiful and refined but also proof that you can mix a pared back aesthetic with fun. Monochrome teepees, yellow eared sausage dogs and rocket bunting are just a few of the finishing touches that will keep kids and the most style conscious parents beaming from ear to ear.
5. Blue Ticking
This is a fantastic website for finding one off vintage buys that will give your playroom or nursery a truly original feel. Husband and wife team Helen and John Shaw source and upcycle all their stock themselves, favouring slightly industrial, 50’s/60’s vibe furniture and accessories.
French school desks, benches and chairs with brightly coloured powder coated legs sell out fast and other popular items include colour pop wire baskets perfect for storing toys and retro style peg boards that are great for presenting favourite pieces of art or trinkets. We also love their range of contemporary prints including an exciting collaboration with designer Gayle Mansfield.

The Zara collection changes seasonally and many items are made in limited runs, so you don’t have to worry that every child in the universe will have an identikit bedroom to yours and the baby and kids furniture is all very neutral and classic so that it won’t ever become dated like some high street offerings. The white vintage style high chair and mini rattan furniture sets are particular Junior favourites.
8. Edit 58
A place for everything and everything in its place is a great motto for keeping kids rooms tidy (we’re working on it) and Edit 58’s gorgeous baskets with bespoke embroidery are perfect for the job. Keep socks, accessoires and toys stowed away in style with these Moroccan baskets which come in a range of sizes.

14. No Fred
We would really love to see inside the homes of Danish No Fred founders Sandra and Signe. These ladies have a seriously good eye and everything they design is wonderfully quirky and exquisitely made. Jungle themed wallpapers featuring giant watercolour palm leaves and prowling lions, their range of mouse chairs and beautiful colour block dolls houses would all give any room a truly distinctive look. The range here might not be very broad but this is definitely a case of quality over quantity.
Kids come with a lot of stuff. A lot. Everything seems completely doable when they’re tiny babies and there are just a few rattles to squirrel away but as the years go by books, games, art materials, Lego, musical instruments and pet stick insects can make a room look fit to bursting.
This is where String’s simple Scandinavian shelving units come in. Wall to wall storage with an incorporated desk or just a few well chosen shelving racks look super slick and keep everything tidied away so that you’re not crunching on Lego or stick insects.
If you hanker for a beautiful old fashioned nursery with all the trimmings, then this is the boutique for you. From cashmere blankets to nursing chairs, you can coordinate every baby accoutrement possible in their selection of traditional house fabrics. We are particularly smitten with their adorable trellis rabbit design which has a lovely 1930’a feel and works just as well decorating a single item as it does as part of a full on, matchy matchy, wall to wall scheme. Personally, we can’t get enough of little cotton tail rabbits…
If you want to put a smile on your wall then Showler & Showler is the place to go. The design house has reams of gorgeous prints all featuring their distinctive pared back graphic style in a palette of bright rainbow colours. Penguins floating away on bunches of helium balloons, ice lollies and a gorgeous London bus are just a few of our favourites and we love the printed tote bags that would look great hanging on pegs to tidy away flotsam and jetsam.

With accent wallpapers and rugs from Ferm Living, super stylish cots from Sebra and the most adorable cribs – we’re particularly smitten with this Noe&Zoe star printed one – they stock everything you need from fun accessories to more integral design pieces that you can build your nursery around. In terms of inexpensive and speedy updates we’re eyeing their range of paper lanterns and pinwheels from My Little Day and a Leopard print Mini Rodini duvet set would give an instant lift.
‘Designs with children in mind’ is this online store’s strapline and this ethos really does inform their carefelly chosen edit of kid friendly furniture and playful accessories.

Vintage feel desks, Moroccan style rugs and cute desk lamps will pull a room together before you can say je ne sais quoi and as all interiors boffins know, it’s the best place to go for ditsy print bedding and cute fitted sheets that are again extremely well priced.We’re currently lusting over a child’s rattan day bed that could quite easily be used as a sofa or a garden lounger once it is grown out of.

Cottage Toys imports their stunning beds and cots from Australian company Incy Interiors so now us non Antipodieans can have the joy of a rose gold cot that looks like it hopped out of a Mary Poppins set too. As well as these coveted beds, the site also stocks a fantastic selection of highchairs, playroom furniture and accessories with a mixture of Scandinavian and traditional designs.
The simple lines and pared back aesthetic of Nordic design are part of this Copenhagan based company’s DNA. Simple and pared back yes, but a large part of Liewood’s success is down to their very obvious sense of humour and warmth. Roadmap rugs, plates with panda faces and cloud shaped mobiles with tumbling pom pom raindrops are just a few examples of their playful touches.
The brand’s strong ethical stance is also a huge draw for parents who want to shop responsibly. This season we’re in love with a pretty ditsy print quilt that looks straight out of a 60’s attic room and who could resist a towelling changing mat with rabbit ears in a practical shade of charcoal?

London based mum Gemma, wanted to create an online boutique that was the one stop shop she wished she could have found when she was decorating her daughter Daisy’s bedroom for the first time. With a focus on brands designed by fellow mums, often discovered on Instagram, this site is a treasure trove of products from independent labels.
We love that fact that this website gives you the option of shopping by theme so that you can instantly access products that reflect the style you are drawn to. And if you don’t know where to start there is plenty of inspiration to be found in the beautiful room-set imagery.
Great style and good value go hand in hand when it comes to Jools Oliver’s Little Bird collection for Mothercare and the nursery furniture and accessories are no exception.
