Nursery Upholstery Fabrics

Which of your fabrics are suitable for nursery rooms?

A baby’s colour vision is in place by 4 months.

I can still remember the fabric in my bedroom when I was a little girl. Even very small children are so observant and have to time to gaze and day dream so it is important to give them pictorial fabrics to feed their wonderful, creative imaginations. Children lie awake for bed more than we do and are eager to look around and absorb their surroundings.

 My eldest daughter Rose drew all the animals in our design Wild and Free, found on cave drawings and Etruscan cases, drawn during many visits to the British Museum.  If that won’t feed the imagination of little ones I’m not sure what will! Also, my younger daughter Flora drew the fun bird for Bird Hop. Both designs are available in a range of stunning colours from Saffron yellow to Mallow pink and Teak blue.

‘By the Sea’ is a wonderful scene for gazing at, with people walking their dogs, sailing boats and lighthouses; my husband drew these images after a weekend visit to Mousehole in Cornwall...

These fabrics will grow with the children, they are not exclusively for ‘little people’ and you won’t have to change the curtains as they grow up... children’s become very attached to the familiar.

These designs are printed on beautiful linen and come in lots if gorgeous colours and for me fit the bill.

Children's bedrooms and playrooms can look really wonderful with full length curtains they can brighten up and transform any children’s bedroom, playroom or nursery.

If you simply cannot decide which is best, blinds or curtains in a child or baby’s room then try using both. Doing so provides privacy, and gives you design options you will not have with blinds alone, adding more colour and pattern.

You can choose from different headings although I prefer a cottage pleat header for children’s playrooms and bedrooms, being soft and pretty.  It is also worth mentioning lining here, interlining helps insulate and keep the room warm and blackout lining can be added to discourage early morning waking...

My Pretty Maids and Stockholm Stripe all coordinate beautifully with them and work well as coordinates for a chair, cushion or bed head.

Blackout blinds and curtains can be useful for young children to help them to sleep longer in early morning. All these can be made for you through our Made to Measure service. All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union making them suitable for large curtains, blinds and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.
