Nesting with a newborn

In this shared bedroom of a young couple and their brand new baby, comfort and calmness reign supreme. From baby’s nursery corner to their ultra-compact wardrobes, “less is more” is the motto throughout. But a peaceful, snooze-affirming sleep space isn’t the only plus – their pared-back approach means they never buy more than they need, saving money for the things and experiences that really matter.

If cosy were a colour scheme

The warm camel shade on the walls is calmed with soft tones of grey and beige, setting a peaceful scene for a good night’s sleep. The choice of materials adds to the mood, like pure cotton textiles, light woods and bamboo.

Simplified dress sense

This couple’s minimal clothing situation was vital when baby’s furniture moved in, reducing outfits to a few always-in-style staples, housed in a compact bamboo wardrobe and under-window cabinets with drawers.

Natural fibres to fall asleep with

Soft cotton from more sustainable sources. Crisp linen. Silky lyocell-cotton blends. Each one has its own beauty and benefits, but they're all great choices for bedtime.

Newborn essentials

Regular feeds and lots of naps are pretty much all that a new baby needs. These parents wanted their nursery corner to be as no-frills as possible, with safe, durable materials and long-lasting functions that will grow up with their little one.

To toddlerhood and beyond

Babies grow up so very fast, so why not buy things that they’ll be able to use long after they’ve taken their first steps?
