Mamas we’ve got babies on the brain this month, and whilst we’re not taking about having more babies per se, we are thinking about baby décor and accessories! We understand how exciting it is to snap up those super adorable newborn goodies… but cheeky cherubs grow into energetic munchkins so quickly that it’s easy for stuff to fall by the wayside, having only been used once or twice (or not at all!). This month we’ve picked some of our favourite investment pieces for that stylish nursery that will last longer than baby’s first year! From a beautifully handcrafted cot (that turns into a junior bed) to customisable wall art, chic handwoven rugs and the ultimate swaddle cloths, we’ve got you covered with What Sassy Mama Wants this June.
Ruby Slipper “Arrow” Print Rug
Beautiful and uniquely designed, Ruby Slipper’s rugs are inspired by tropical Asian surroundings and are made with expert craftsmanship in India. We love how easy it is to order a customised rug – simply pick one of their beautiful designs, select a colour and size, and approximately 6 weeks later your stylish rug will be at your doorstep! Personally, we can’t get enough of their rose coloured Burma-inspired “Arrow” rug (see above!). It’s contemporary, decorative, simplistic but eye-catching! From nursery to bedroom, playroom to sitting room, this durable piece (did we mention it’s reversible and washable too!) will last you for years to come.

Jellycat Bashful Black and Cream Puppy Soother
This adorable baby soother features a cute black and cream puppy sewn onto a soft soothing blanket. Beautifully designed and crafted, this little blanket can be conveniently rolled up for easy travel and makes the perfect snuggly baby soother for restless munchkins. Ultra soft and super cute, it’s impossible for littlies not to fall in love with this gorgeous comforter — plus we love that it fits in so well with our littlies nursery decor!

Ni-night Patchwork Rocking Chair
This fun piece of furniture makes an eye-catching addition to any nursery. We love the simplistic rocker design and funky patchwork fabric.

As munchkins grow, this beautiful chair remains a lovely piece for bed time story reading.

Commemorate and decorate at the same time! We’re besotted with the charming bespoke prints available at SammyEve — this graphic designer and illustrator creates beautifully designed artworks that can be customised with baby’s birth details. With designs inspired by Asian culture, cartoons, animals, music, pop culture, and fashion, it’s difficult to choose our favourite, but we absolutely adore this simplistic elephant-inspired print that is both charming and dainty.
