Scandinavian Nursery Design 101

Scandinavian nursery design and kid’s decor is all about minimalism, timeless colours and patterns, and sustainability. 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.

Minimalist nursery design

When it comes to Scandinavian style kids room decor, less is always more. Nordic and Scandinavian baby toys and decorations 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 decorations, opt for minimalist products like these:
