Most moms-to-be will feel the nesting urge during their pregnancy. So did I, but Cleo took me by surprise by coming 3 weeks early! Therefore her nursery had the essentials, but was far from finished. So if you’re a mom to be and you’re stressing about the baby room not being ready: don’t worry! Your baby needs so little in the beginning, mostly your comfort. The rest can come sooner or later!
This being said, I enjoyed decorating her room, even if I was on the late side. There are some really cute and affordable nursery decor shops in Bangkok! Below I’m sharing my favorites – some of these are physical shops, but all provide the possibility to order online. Hope you enjoy reading, and shopping!
1. Lamka Artisan Store
Alright, I might be a little biased on this one – Lamka is the multi brand store I launched myself in cooperation with local artisans! I wanted to offer a worldwide platform for the beautiful items I discover here in my new home country.
You’ll find three categories of products on Lamka Artisan Store: home decor, baby/kids items and jewellery. All are handmade by local craftspeople and every purchase supports them directly. Gift cards are available too. And we ship our artisan goodies worldwide!
At the moment we have a cute collection of baby mobiles, handmade from crocheted yarn and felt. Next to being pretty, they stimulate your baby’s brain function and neural development. Inspired by nature, you can choose a range of animals like sheep, cats, dogs, koalas or Thai elephants to entertain your little one. Have a look at the full collection here!
2. Melody from Paris
The owner of this shop is Elodie, a Parisienne who’s been living in Bangkok since 5 years. After the birth of her first child, she couldn’t find the toys and nursery decorations she liked, so she started creating them herself! To her surprise (but not mine ;)) many other mothers liked her items and that’s how her shop started to grow.
Elodie makes soft Montessori-inspired toys: they have various patters, fabrics or sounds. Moreover, she makes beautiful room accessories such as teepees and wall decor. Everything can be customized according to your taste! Elodie can create the baby room of your dreams, or make some specific pieces. Keep her in mind for your next baby gift too, as there’s nothing more unique than a personalized present! You can find her on Facebook and Instagram @melodyfromparis.
Plantoys is a great shop if you’re looking for quality toys in Bangkok, for your own kids or as a gift. Their toys all made from wood, which I love. They’re environment-friendly, have a beautiful design and are simply great to play with.
Cleo used to love her wooden baby gym from Plantoys. Now her favorites are the fruit cutting set and the beautiful woodpecker walker (tip: if you live in Thailand, you can get 10% off this walker if you order through LINE @plantoysth and mention you follow me! ;)). Lastly, the wooden kitchen is on our wish list!
If you live abroad, check out their international website for more details on where to buy.
4. Mother Goose
Mother Goose is a nursery decor shop in Bangkok, founded by Chotiporn Nantakwang. She’s a mother of 3 girls with a family background in furniture manufacturing. She’s always been looking for unique pieces to decorate her girls’ rooms, which inspired her to start her own shop!
Mother Goose has self-designed furniture, beddings and accessories for your baby or child’s room. Their shop can be found close to Wireless Road in Bangkok, or you can order online!
I bought these cute knobs of Etsy too, to give a standard IKEA cabinet a more original look:
I also bought this pretty macramé wall hanger on Etsy (this specific ones comes from Lamaicraft, which is currently not available in their Etsy shop. However, you can order it directly off their Instagram page @lamaicraft).
If you live in Thailand, you will incur import taxes if you order from abroad for more than approximately 1200 THB (shipping included). Keep this in mind when you order from a foreign shop on Etsy. Alternatively, you can select Thailand as shop location to avoid such tax (and support local shops as a bonus :)).
