The latest nursery decor trend to hit the Instagram is oval cots, and they’re stunning.

Keep reading for some incredible examples and great inspiration to help you style these oval cots in a way that brings your personality into the home.
Oval Wooden Crib
Since we’ve all started spending more time at home, bringing natural materials inside has become more important than ever for creating a sense of peace. Featuring natural textures and materials makes us feel calmer, but that also makes it the perfect choice for a nursery.
This oval wooden crib is the perfect addition to any neutral-toned nursery, and the light wood helps it match almost every colour. With rounded wooden bars, you will always have a clear view of your little one while they’re sleeping. It also has the ability to be turned into a small seating area during the day or permanently when your child outgrows their cot, which adds a whole extra level of functionality to this item of nursery furniture and makes it more of a long-term homeware piece.
This style is perfect for a piece of furniture that is going to last. There is a worry with cot beds that you’ll be finished with them in a couple of months and as such, they’re not worth the investment. This style lends itself perfectly to the longevity of your home – you can easily use it as a toddler bed, or even a space for your young child to chill in during the day. As it is a space they’ll be able to call their own, it’s the perfect way to get the best value out of the cot bed you choose to buy.
Grey Wooden Oval Cot
Grey has been a massive trend in the world of homewares over the past few years – grey tones accents can be found in just about every home and it works so well for a nursery. It’s gender-neutral and feels incredibly calming which is just as important for you as your baby.
This beautiful grey oval baby crib combines modern homeware style and comfort for your child. Add a draped canopy-style curtain in a colour that compliments the rest of your decor to create more of a feature in the nursery. Just make sure that the curtain can’t be pulled down when your baby gets old enough to explore.
White Oval Baby Cot
If you love light and airy spaces, then most of the rooms in your home are probably painted white and it can be difficult to feel like you’re stopping your baby from developing creativity if you turn their room white too. There’s a strong temptation to fill your baby’s room with bright colours to inspire them but, while some stimulation is important, creating a calming space for your child to rest is vital.
You can easily carry the white theme into your baby’s space with this white oval wooden crib. Choose a few calming colours to accent the room and the cot with, and you have modern-looking decor and a stylish oval baby cot with no real effort.
Another version that allows you to get the best value for money out of your purchase. With an end that can open, your toddler is able to crawl in and out as and when they want – when they are old enough to do so. This gives you peace of mind that they have somewhere safe to sleep, but also that you’ll be able to get long term use out of it – which is definitely something to keep in mind when making such an investment.
Wooden Oval Cot Bed
