We finished the nursery before Bea was born as, of course, we had opened the envelope! Initially I veered towards this Sian Elin wallpaper , then I felt it was too much for the space and found this incredible animal wallpaper. I hope you like it!
That amazing wallpaper is from Beware the Moon — an independent wallpaper designer I found online. It features 51 different animals from the tropical to farmyard, all hand drawn in pencil. It really is a work of art and the neutral palette makes it versatile for the future too. We papered one wall and colour matched the other 3 to the backdrop of the paper which is a chalky white.
Like so many of you, we chose the IKEA Hemmnes 8 drawer chest for all of our storage — nappies, bedding, clothes, it all goes in here. I chose a coral pink shade from our local trade paints shop and painted the chest myself in an eggshell finish, then diluted the colour with white eggshell for the 3 progressively lighter shades for the drawers.
I used a gloss roller and it really was very easy. Then I chose Anthropologie knobs in shades of blue and mint to finish it off. The mint green chair was a bargain from HomeSense love that shop! The knitted pouffe is also from Dunelm and unfortunately now out of stock.
I also wanted to add in some gold to the room as my current obsession and this seemed the right corner, as the wall is very blank. I used large gold polka dot decals to create a confetti pattern, from Etsy of course. This cotbed was from John Lewis and similar in style. The patterned fitted sheet so hard to find! I searched high and low for the perfect mobile thinking about, but failing to make one, and eventually chose this paper clouds mobile also from The White Company.
We also needed some storage and I wanted to be able to display pretty toys or books and for Bea to be able to get her own toys out and put them away!
The remaining alcove was a funny width 66cm but I found these ladder shelves at a great price from The Futon Company.
We are happy to assist with dismantling if required. The height works perfectly!
We need to fix it to the wall before Bea is toddling! I found this rug in Urban Outfitters again, as the floor needed something to soften it up and I loved the geometric grey pattern — and the price! Lastly, the art came from Society6, my new favourite place for well price art for your home!
I hope you liked the tour!
The work was done in a business like fashion and to an excellent standard. They were often placed in a fainting room, a room usually off the parlor or in the main area of the home, where a woman could go to recover from fainting spells usually caused by overheating or a shortness of breath due to the tight fitting corsets she wore. There is, however, a way to win every time at the Ikea Game.
So feel free to have a look! All the sources are listed below but do ask if you have any questions!
