Baby G’s Nursery Design

  
Baby G’s nursery is finally complete (minus a cushion which is on order for the rocking chair, so the current one is filling in for now!). I’m so pleased with it and it’s turned out just as I’d hoped. Although I struggled sometimes with the gender neutral, I think we’ve achieved a pretty neutral scheme! Here are some more pics and details below…  

The room is pretty big so we have managed to fit quite a bit in and still have room to spare. My Eames Style Rocker is definitely my favourite purchase and once the Bloomingville Sleeping Bunny Cushion arrives to sit on it, it’ll be complete. 

Luckily we already had the curtains from our old bedroom which also happen to be blackout so are perfect for the nursery. They were originally a bargain from H&M Home so have served us well!

We went for the Silvercross Nostalgia Cotbed as we wanted it to turn into a bed when baby is older and the drawer underneath meant we had some added storage space. Being in a two bedroom flat we need all the storage we can get!

 
On the other side of the room we have yet more storage! We already had these trunks too (originally from Achica) so it was just a case of emptying them of our own rubbish, ready to fill with baby rubbish!

I had always wanted these Bloomingville House Box Shelves as I think they are just adorable for a nursery or child’s bedroom so when I found them on Achica in their clearance I snapped them up straight away. They also came in different internal colours but we went for white (gender neutral and all that!) as we can always paint the insides at a later date. 

  

We haven’t put much in the shelves yet, just Baby G’s first 12 week scan picture, some toys I recieved from my friends and some super cute building blocks I found in Jojo Maman Bebe. The little brown bear giving a wave is in fact H’s childhood bear!

  

I didn’t want to spend a fortune on artwork so found these printables online, edited the colours to fit with the scheme then printed them off and framed them myself. I also made them in pink so they can be swapped if Baby G turns out to be a girl, however I actually quite like the mint green a lot!

  
I did however buy this print  from Sarah & Bendrix at Not on the Highstreet as I simply NEEDED it. I love the gold foil typography and the ‘naps fix everything’ quote is perfectly fitting for above the cot! 

The cot bedding is from Olli Ella and was something I found and bought very early on. Similarly the cloud mobile from The White Company was the first thing I ever bought when we found out about Baby G and although we couldn’t hang it above the cot without putting a hook in the ceiling, it still catches the wind and looks great where it is. 

  
We already had these IKEA Hemnes drawers, which again just needed emptying of all our own clothes to fill with baby’s. I have to admit, I have had to hold onto one bottom drawer as I simply don’t have anymore room in my own wardrobe!

The baskets were gifts from my various baby showers and are perfect for housing all the baby changing bits and bobs. We also filled one with a collection of books, some of which H and I read as kids ourselves including Elmer, Peace at Last and The Hungry Caterpillar (must haves!!). 

  
Lastly, this little fella came from Wilkinsons and makes a perfect night light. 

Now all that’s left to complete it is Baby G!
