As Sally pointed out in her latest piece on baby room lighting, a great nursery doesn't have to be limited to the traditional themes of a bright blue or floral pink room.
There are plenty of accessories for nurseries which fit the requirements of parents keeping the sex of their child a surprise until birth, or even for those who just want to avoid the usual stereotypical styles.
Pastel colours are a great option, and there are some classic designs like this Bedtime Hugs bedding set (right) from Mamas and Papas for £89, which can also be used as the child gets older and grows out of their cot.
Here are some more nursery finds to help inspire you when decorating for your new arrival.
