Décor and Furniture

ne of the delights of expecting a baby is the chance to turn the muddle that is the spare room into somewhere delightful for baby – the removal of all those old packing cases and other assorted junk and the arrival of cute wallpaper and a pile of toys.

Some paint on the walls, a carpet on the floor, but it is the little things that count. Does the furniture all match or is it cast offs from the family? Is it a single lightbulb with an old shade or is the lighting designed to help baby sleep.

Showing products for the nursery all together in a room set makes a big difference, and it is often the little extras that they add. I'm told, customers often say "I'll have the whole lot!" Fine – but it does mean that the retailer has to stock everything on display – no odd little items from B&Q or they'll be round there doing the shopping.

Careful thought needs to be given to the displays to ensure variety. You may not like bright colours but somebody does. You may find pastels a bit insipid – but it might just be perfect for another mum. The key is to have a choice which covers the main areas. But not TOO much choice! If they can't decide between this or that, they'll often end up choosing neither. The ideal is to give them choice but that one of the styles is an outright winner!

The final advantage of the "I'll have the lot" sentiment is that once mum has fallen in love with that look, she'll buy it! She's unlikely to go around checking on prices of this and that to find the cheapest.

The secret is to find and display the right products in the right way!

Lumie Bedbug

The award-winning new Lumie Bedbug is a unique sleep aid for babies and young children, featuring a low-blue light to make it non-alerting at bedtime.

The brand new Lumie Bedbug is now shipping! A unique sleep aid for babies and young children, it features a low-blue light to make it non-alerting at bedtime.

The Lumie Bedbug is a three-in-one product: 15 minute sunset, reading light and orange night light. The sunset can fade to off or to night light.

Lumie designed the Bedbug at its Cambridge-based headquarters based on scientific research and in consultation with children’s sleep expert, Sarah Ockwell-Smith, parenting expert and author of the bestselling 'The Gentle Sleep Book'.

Sarah says: "Most nightlights that parents use in their children's bedrooms are bad for sleep, because they inhibit the release of the sleep hormone melatonin. By incorporating sleep-promoting low-blue light, Lumie Bedbug can have positive effects on sleep at any age, from birth right through to school age, while also providing a cute and reassuring bedtime friend."
