Gone are the days where bringing home baby meant your home had to be filled with lots of brightly colored plastics. Recently there has been a surge of baby gear that is not only really functional but it also looks beautiful in your home. Whether your home is full of precious classics or bold modern pieces there is baby gear that you can work right in to your home décor. Check out our list of the stylish instagram-worthy gear that we think could
work into any home style:
Having a safe and soothing place to put baby down so you can get tasks down or simply take a shower is key for new parents. However, you don’t want to feel like you have to hide it away each time you have visitors. With the Bloom Coco Lounger you will be happy to showcase this bouncer for baby that features a leatherette seat pad and is made from sturdy birch wood.
When baby starts to eat solid food you don’t have to fill your kitchen with brightly colored cups or plates with cartoon characters. The Avancy tableware is made from organic bamboo and thanks to the suction cup the bowl will stay put on the table. The elegant design will seamlessly work into your kitchen while the hints of vibrant colors will make baby smile.
Your little one will likely eventually end up with lots of toys that are brightly colored and make lots of noise but until then you can fill your home with beautiful and soothing toys. This play gym will be entertaining for your baby without over stimulating them. The all natural wood, simple design and neutral palette will flawlessly fit into your home design.
