Stylish buys for the home with kids

stylish furniture for the nursery

It can often seem like the toys are taking over in our house and it can definitely be a challenge trying to keep our house looking stylish when we have an array of neon constantly dotted all over the place…

Now that we’re over two years in, there are a few things I wish we would’ve thought about when buying items for the toddler. In the past I’ve just bought whatever looks practical, or I think she’ll like. But in hindsight, I wish we gave a little more thought to how long items actually last and what will fit in with the rest of our decor.

Up until now I haven’t been much of a toy snob…but there’s something about wooden toys which is so much more appealing than the plastic neon currently strew across our floors.

We do have a combination of wooden and plastic in our house and don’t get me wrong, if Taylor seems to favour a particular plastic toy over wooden, then who am I to decide that she can’t have it? I’m not the toy police. But when it comes to bigger items that are going to become part of the furniture, I think it’s definitely worth investing in wood.

In terms of furniture, I love the scandanavian style which I think is modern, yet timeless. The pastel colours and clean lines of the Flexa range at House of Fraser is absolutely gorgeous and I hope that we’ll be able to upgrade to some of these items in the future (we need to get saving!).

I also think that storage is so important to stash away the toys and keep the house looking presentable. Having a place for everything is a must if you want to maintain a sense of order and prevent your house getting overrun by complete chaos (at least by the time dad gets home…)
