Little treats

  • Levi Sachrowitz's parents live in Ilovo, Johannesburg, and his nursery is a calm, clutterless space created by his mom, Caryn. She wanted something a little different.

Plan ahead

  • Keep the future in mind with big furniture buys.  
  • This chest of drawers, used as a compactum, will easily make the transition from nursery to toddler's room and beyond.
  • Use storage boxes to store nappies or powders and lotions that you want on hand.
  • A glass container is clever and chic for storing cotton wool, but be sure to put it where baby cannot knock it over.

TIP:

Use floating boxes or shelves above the changing station to stack receiving blankets or nappies within arm's reach.

Décor delight

  • Select a colour scheme for your nursery and try to stick with it.
  • A nursery should be a calm and serene room where you and the baby feel comfortable and happy.
  • We especially love the "Levi" wall art, created by Milk Deco (milkdeco.co.za) and the stripe and polka dot combo on the walls.
  • The storage stairs are another beautiful and clever element.
  • Each of the stairs has a drawer where anything from toys to books and shoes can be stored.
  • Behind the nursery door Caryn has hung little animal figurine hooks for towels or receiving blankets.
  • Remember to have a wastepaper bin and a wash basket in your nursery to make things easier.

Sitting pretty

  • A chair for mom is a must-have for any nursery.
  • Here you will spend many hours bonding with your baby, feeding him, rocking him to sleep or just relaxing.
  • Select a chair in a neutral colour and one that feels comfy for you.
  • Also keep in mind that it will probably be moved to your room or the sitting room once your baby is a bit older.
