A Mint, Pale Blue And Grey Nursery
It’s been a little while since we bought you a super cute nursery tour so we thought it was high time that was rectified. I am a sucker for a lovely room and am always convincing myself that I need to redecorate the girls rooms. Honestly, they do need that new bedding or another sweet print for their walls. Pinky promise.
Today’s nursery is one full of gorgeous details and an overall feeling of calm and simplicity. Claire has worked hard to create that classic feel with just enough of an injection of colour and personality. There is a fabulous Ikea hack on the wardrobe which I may be stealing for Alice’s room. If you want some more great Ikea hacks then take a peek at the one’s shared over on Rock My Style last week.
It seems the perfect little space to me and has been wonderfully captured by the lovely Carley Buick Photography. I’ll hand over to Claire to tell you a little bit more about the design and also share a few of her purchases and finds with you all. If you want some more sneaky peeks you can follow her on Instagram at @mumandflynn. Enjoy.
My design inspiration was from scandi designs I had seen on Pinterest and Instagram. I loved the neutral colour scheme and thought it created a light, calming vibe for the nursery. I thought some of the designs I had seen were a bit stark so went for a pop of colour with the mint green and pale blue.
I was conscious of creating a nursery which was timeless and classic rather than having bright colours containing current popular children’s characters. The walls were painted in Farrow and Ball Strong White and added Farg Form grey cloud wallpaper from This Modern Life for its bold graphic pattern.
I struggled to source all the bits and pieces I was looking for in Edinburgh so I took a trip to London. I visited Harrods which gave me further inspiration but sourced the products cheaper online or in smaller boutiques.
For furniture I chose the Stokke Sleepi in White and created an open display unit from an IKEA Pax wardrobe without the doors. The white chest of drawers and the cloud rug were both from Maison Du Monde and the White Pop side table and Charles Eames rocking chair were from Cult Furniture. The brown round rug is from M&S.
In terms of decorative items we got the star night light from This Modern Life, the Little Gent Print was from Didi and Bud and the Elephant Head from Hurn and Hurn. The textiles such as the cot bedding, blankets and towels were from The Nursery Window and our cute building blocks, bunny hanger and wicker baskets are from Olive Loves Alfie. Finally the cloud mobile was a beautiful handmade gift from a friend.
