Top 3 Scandinavian Nursery Decor Tips

Implementing a Scandinavian theme to your nursery, baby bedroom or child’s room not only provides a great aesthetic, but also improves the overall function and quality of the room. Scandinavian nursery design and kid’s decor is all about minimalism, timeless colours and patterns, and sustainability. Here are our top three tips for Scandinavian nursery decorating:

1. Timeless colours and patterns

A Scandi-style baby room decor scheme will always have timeless colours and patterns – ones that withstand trends and are always in style. Here are some of our favourite timeless patterns for kids room decor:

Garbo Fauna Pattern: A truly timeless pattern with a dark sage base featuring cute little illustrations of rabbits, squirrels and owls amongst lush forest flora.

Garbo Mares Pattern: This lovely pattern comes in a dark and light version, featuring illustrations of sea life, lighthouses and seaweed!

2. Minimalist nursery design

Baby mobiles are classic and minimalist decorations for baby bedrooms. Cam Cam makes some fabulous mobiles that are perfect additions for any nursery. When it comes to Scandinavian style kids room decor, less is always more. Nordic and Scandinavian toys and baby decor are simple, stylish and will go perfectly with the rest of your kid’s room decor or baby room design. Rather than stocking up on heaps of cheap, poorly-made toys and decoration, opt for minimalist products.


3. Sustainable baby bedroom decor

Sustainability and a connection to nature are the top two major tenants of Scandinavian nursery design and kids room decor. Here are some of our favourite sustainable kids’ room decor and baby bedroom items:
