If you're going for a neutral nursery why not experiment and have fun with bold colours and shapes. Pair with classic nursery furniture like this Boori Eton dresser. It combines baby changing table and storage, which is perfect for a small space, you can even remove the changing station once past the potty training stage.
We have recently sorted our provision in the water tray to ensure a focus on #finemotorskills primary over than #grossmotorskills, so we enhanced the water tray by adding a washing line. There was barely space to wash the clothes in the end as everyone wanted to join in. As well as wringing the clothes of water and in turn developing gross motor skills they also developed their fine motor skills by squeezing open the pegs! Also lots of fun!
