Choosing a timeless colour like white, muted grey or white/beech mix will mean that your room can change style over time, yet retain the modern minimal look you love.

For truly Instagrammable images, take a look at the Rose Gold cot bed, and conversion kit for longer lasting use. Simple yet stunning, with the ability to go feminine or opt for a minimal design.

Many mums love the Sleepyhead Deluxe, you can get beautiful covers from online sellers to customise your pillow.  Use it in the Cot Bed once you move over to baby’s room. Use during the day for play, sleep and the best thing is that the Deluxe comes with clever loops and baby play bar, enabling you to convert into a play are and tummy time as baby grows.




Where do you put all of baby’s teeny babygro’s, bibs, vests and sweet outfits? Clever mamas on line have been coming up with ingenious ways to combine storage and changing. This clever changing area is designed using Ikea Rast with a changing table topper added. If you opt for a bigger item like this Ikea square storage, you’ll have plenty of space for changing and keeping nappies in easy reach! Don’t forget to add non-slip grip mats under and ties to avoid your changing mat slipping.
