The Modern Nursery was one of the very first brands I came across when Daphne was a newborn. I fell immediately in love with the branding, the story behind it and the products on offer. Just perfect for style-conscious parents who don’t want their babies’ nurseries to look like something out of a high street showroom window.
And it seems it wasn’t just me that engaged with The Modern Nursery’s philosophy, as the brand has exploded on social media and beyond, winning awards and recognition at lightning speed.
The mum behind the shop, Laura, is suitably glamorous and experienced in the worlds of fashion and commerce, and has used her discerning eye to pick the best of the best when it comes to independent kids’ brands. There’s pretty much nothing on sale that I wouldn’t like to have in Daphne’s room. Here are some of my favourite pieces:
This adorable little pram makes me SO desperate to be four again so I can push it around without getting back ache. I just love it. Daph hasn’t shown a huge amount of interest in Baby Annabel just yet (she likes feeding her but then chucks her across the room in boredom) but as soon as she goes through the dolly phase (please god that she does!) this will be first on my wishlist. Love it.
Cute shelving is just mandatory for kids’ rooms. Hang this set of three adorable house-shaped shelves up in your child’s room, add a few chosen accessories and you’ve got instant style, without a hint of twee.
There are too many horrible plastic musical cot mobiles in the world. Fact. This beautiful hand-embroidered swan design is the antithesis of them, and best of all plays Summertime when you pull the cord. Genius!
Cotton ball lights may not be new but they’re still rightly popular. The Modern Nursery has several colour combinations available, but I love this pastel-hued string – wonderfully calming.
Last but not least, The Modern Nursery sell the biggest and best range of ball pits I have ever seen! No cheap pop-up pits here, these beauties are made from high quality jersey-covered foam in different colours to suit your interiors.
