Girl's toy storage
For a fun way to store and display toys this pretty dolls' house shelf is perfect. Use all available space by placing painted shelves in an alcove.
An antique sleigh bed dressed with striped linen and vintage quilts is the centrepiece of this child's bedroom. Books and toys are stored on shelves neatly slotted under the eaves. A striped rug echoes the sheets.
Keep nursery walls and furniture neutral, for a clean classic look which will also require less redecoration as your child grows up. Here, a white chest of drawers from Wigwam Kidz provides beautiful storage as well as a changing area, while a shelf above has hooks for hanging clothes, maximising space. A large bag from Jane Churchill hangs on the wall, providing more space-saving storage.
