A bunny inspired nursery with vintage twist

The days of Beatrix Potter style nurseries may well be numbered, with ever-increasing bunny-inspired design ideas out on the High Street…and beyond!

Now, I’m not advocating the demise of Peter Rabbit and his friends…just suggesting you might end up with a longer-lasting nursery design using these three simple steps…

To stop the scheme dating too quickly, go easy on larger areas. Stick to long-lasting durable flooring and neutral paint colours on the walls and ceiling. If considering wallpaper, stick to one ‘feature’ wall and choose a ‘grown-up’ design that everyone will appreciate. Jane Churchill’s ‘March Hare’ wallpaper is a design classic while Peony and Sage have a small selection of just delightful rabbit-themed papers.

Use bedding and other soft-furnishings to further introduce the bunny theme. Again, stick mainly to generic styles, but feel free to throw in a couple of references to your bunny of choice…whether it be Bugsy or Peter, Thumper or Fiver…using the odd cushion or a favourite blind fabric for instance.

Finally, accessories…! Here’s where you can go a little mad without breaking the bank. Lampshades, artwork and other small decorative items, featuring trademark bunnies, are relatively inexpensive to replace when your little one craves something different.

And there you have it! Just a few steps to help create a bunny-beautiful nursery for your little one.
