Nursery Plans Up In The Clouds

by Nicola Kelly

 Back in June 2015 my hubby and I found out that we were expecting a little bean, later on bump was known as Moomin. We decided not to find out the sex of baby, so I needed to come up with an idea for the nursery that was gender neutral. As a toddler I had cloud wallpaper on my walls, and I remember it fondly, so decided to go for a design along these lines.

After venturing into Cath Kidston I fell in love with their new cloud print, I purchased a laundry bag (to help as inspiration but also as I had heard that these little people create a whole lot of washing!) and got my creative hat on:

I loved the idea of all of the pastel colours together and decided to paint the main bedroom wall in pistachio whip and the other walls in bright white, with hand painted clouds and little birds.

Our nursery is our smallest room, so to make best use of the space we went for IKEA furniture, including the cot (as it came highly recommended and was a lot less bulky than many other cots available). I gave the furniture a new twist with ceramic handles from (These Please), in a Pastel yellow.

I am very lucky to have some very talented friends that made some beautiful pieces for our little room of dreams. Giving a personal touch to our baby boys space.

Handy shelving in any room, especially a nursery are the picture shelves from IKEA, such good value for money and you can place books, pictures, photos on them which can break up a plain wall.

Also from IKEA, I purchased this cute false plant and used the paint from the clouds to decorate the plastic pot, to compliment the room.

One final touch and one that can be an important item of a room, lighting, we loved this cloud down light from (once again….) IKEA. Works with the room design and on a dimmer switch, is great for our little man.

I hope that you have enjoyed reading about our petit but lovely room of dreams.

I have recently spoke with my lovely mummy friends and asked them for their favourite items/accessories/décor in their little ones rooms, a post that I am working on, and will hopefully be with you soon-keep your eyes peeled.
