15 Designer Cots for the On Trend Nursery

When decorating the nursery for your new addition, the cot is the crowning glory of the room.  You want a cot that is beautiful, functional, suits your lifestyle and will hopefully also last well enough to be useful for any subsequent babies you might have.

There are such absolutely beautiful cots around at the moment.  One of the ladies in our office just gave birth to a little girl, and she had chosen a delicious rose-gold cot that was the envy of all the office girls.  It was just so divine, and really suited her new nursery which had grey tones on the walls and a lovely cream carpet.  We have included her cot in this list, plus the others are cots we at Stay at Home Mum have totally lusted over.  We might not have little babies anymore, but doesn’t mean we can’t dream of the perfect nursery!
