Well here it is! I have been working on my little girl’s nursery and gleaning inspiration from various brands and designers that I love for ages. I think when you have children already life can be so hectic that you don’t get to dedicate as much time to designing a room as you would like, though 4am has been a good time to have a brain storm for me!
I have stuck with the same cotbed that I have had for both of the boys, but I have obviously changed the bedding. I love the fact that all of our children have shared the same bed, I think it’s so sweet and when we look back that will be the one thing that has been a consistent thing for all of the children’s rooms.
As you can see in the picture above the wall has a broad stripe of ‘rose ritz’ pinky coloured paint across. While I didn’t want the room to be a stereotypical baby pink room, it’s just not my taste, I did want something that would have an element of ‘pretty’ and chose to go for this colour with it’s deep rose hue. I wanted something that she could grow into, so as her tastes develop she will hopefully still like her room for a number of years! I took inspiration for the wall styling from the lovely Olli Ella site, which is where I got my bedding from. To do the ‘stripe’ across the room I chose my desired width and then used masking tape to create a truly straight line and painted over the desired space. It was so easy and looks really effective (or I think so anyway!)
I chose the pitter patter pink bedding from Olli Ella, mainly because I love the styling so much, it’s truly adorable and in no way overly babyish! My little shelf and hedgehog lamp are both from Mothercare and help create a perfect finish, plus a little bit of storage for those all important necessities I may need for night feeds. I love the touch of the Maileg bunnies and mice too, the room wouldn’t feel complete without them!
There are so many sweet gifts in this room too, my dearest friend’s and family have been so generous and kind with their keepsake gifts and we have tried to make sure that they all have pride of place… at least until she’s old enough to try and eat them!
I hope you like the baby’s room, I love it and it was a real source of pride the other day to see it complete and finished, not only for me because I can’t wait to meet her but also because it represents a new chapter for us as a family of five!
