The branches may be bare at the moment, but I can’t help but think of spring and greenery. Although far removed from trad teddies and bunnies, trees are a fantastic unisex theme for a nursery – great if you don’t know what flavour you’re expecting. Designers love them as well – there’s a veritable forest of goodies out there. If you know where to look… What better starting point than Eloise Renouf’s I Love Trees limited-edition giclee print, £16.50, Etsy. The 50s palette is just divine. Actually, at that price, I might snap one up for the kitchen…
One of our favourite Scandi companies Ferm Living has this fab wooden wall lamp, £69.95, 95 Percent Shop. Check out the dinky signature bird on the treetop.
Ferm Living also has loads of amazing tree wallpapers, but I’m loving Roddy & Ginger’s modern Logpile design, £52 per roll, in Silver Birch. Super-stylish and makes for a great neutral backdrop to brighter artworks.
Need somewhere to hang clothes (or just gorgeous things)? Look no further than P’Kolino’s cool clothes tree in zingy green, £85, Nubie.
For the floor, Designers Guild has the Pond Street Kids Tree Rug, £175.50, with its bold green and orange leaves and retro feel.
Graphic Spaces has long been a BG hot label and their solid walnut, birch and okoumeÂ bookends, including Eugene the Sapling, are currently on sale at Peanut & Pip, £42.
If your little one is very little, then RoomMate’s Forest & Friend quilted playmat/blanket is a great investment, £52, Nordic Elements. Lovely as a newborn gift, too.
Tree cushions are all over the place, but none finer than this knitted oak leaf tree by wool queen Donna Wilson, £43.50.
Another ace baby gift and a sweet sentiment (just hope it works) from Modo Creative’s wooden mobile, £19, Not on the High Street.
Finally, why not accessorise with Plan Toys’ wooden Stacking Tree, a beautiful heirloom toy that will also improve hand eye coordination. Currently on offer for £9.95 at Precious Little One.
