Welcome to the looooong overdue room reveal of my daughter, Nyah’s, nursery!
It still feels a little funny saying that – daughter. I was a proud #boymama for nearly 6 years before she came along so it’s taken a while to adjust! But.. at the same time it feels like she’s been part of our family forever.
To say that we’ve all been smitten with Nyah would be an understatement and watching the boys with her literally makes my heart melt! I honestly feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
Anyway! On to the nursery…
As you could imagine, as a Children’s Interior Designer, I was ecstatic to be able to finally design my own daughters nursery. I had been pinning and saving images and ideas for years “just in case” we decided to go for number 3.
When we found out we were having a girl my head went in to overdrive and ideas were flooding in left, right and centre. I see so many gorgeous products and images every day so I knew I had to take it back to basics and think about what I REALLY wanted.
I knew I wanted white and wood to be the base with touches of gold/brass but I also wanted a pop or two of colour. I wanted the room to feel calm and relaxing with a natural vibe but still be playful and fun. How you want to FEEL in a space is so important so if you’re in the process of designing your own home or kids rooms definitely keep that front of mind.
I have loved that Pottery Barn side table for as long as I could remember so I knew it had to be included and a comfy chair was a must-have (if you’re reading this and expecting, do yourself a favour and invest in a good, comfortable chair!).
I came up with the idea of painting the half moon shape and even though I looked at wallpaper and other options I couldn’t shake it so it was a done deal.
Because the room design so far was fairly neutral I went searching for my ‘pop of colour’ and when I saw this rug I knew it was perfect! The statement piece.
The rest of the room came together organically from there. I chose items based on the colour palette of the above and a lot of the items I have included are products that I LOVE and will use in other areas of the house when Nyah has outgrown her nursery. These items include the gorgeous prints, the lamp, the baskets and even the mobile.
Last but not least was the wardrobe. I was determined to make this tiny area as cute as possible!
When I made the decision not to use wallpaper in the room I knew straight away that I would be incorporating it in to the wardrobe. It was also a great way to add a bit of pattern in to the room and the dots were a lovely contrast to the stark lines of the rug.
If you’ve been following me for a while you know how much I love a basket so the wardrobe was the perfect excuse to get some more cute baskets in to my life!
All in all I couldn’t be happier with Nyah’s Nursery. It’s an absolute delight to be in and we already have so many amazing memories made in this room with many more to come.
