A Colourful & Quirky Nursery For Teddy

I am a big fan of brights when it comes to littles. It’s just so fun. I also like things that reflect your personality and have a little story to tell. Charlotte and Chris have managed to do this to perfection when it comes to their little boy, Teddy’s, nursery. It is a colourful quirky nursery with lots of unique touches and amazing DIY transformations.

In fact their whole house is full of the most imaginative makes and wonderful displays of personal touches. You can see the second part of their home tour over on Rock My Style today and the first part was last week which you can see here. It is just so creative and full of fun. I love it.

The nursery my truly favourite room. We didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl so we made the room very gender neutral which once the small Jarvis arrived we could make more gender specific. The walls are painted in Farrow and Ball Wevet and Downpipe and the Radiator is in Charlottes Locks.

We both love natural materials and wanted to bring some of the wood we used for the reclad of the shed into the house. It was a complete bargain material and the whole wall cost £12 to reclad.

Ted’s rocking chair was an amazing find in a junk shop whilst out for work and was Ercol but only cost £28. I had it resprayed by ‘We Spray Anything’ to match the Downpipe wall in Ted’s room.

His chest of drawers were treated with a Fiddes Wax Oil in White and were purchased from eBay and his cot and wardrobes were Ikea, with painted strips of wood as the handle to make them look more bespoke. The rug is another Ikea purchase, although it is very vintage Ikea, and was Chris’s first ever purchase when he brought his first house. It’s so nice that we can still find a use for it.

The curtain pole is a scaffold pole and again cost £3 in total. We love a bargain!

The ceiling light was a branch we found on the beach in Cornwall on our honeymoon. It was lovely driftwood but we had no idea what we were keeping it for but once we decorated Ted’s room we knew it would look perfect with the scaffold boards.

The dog lamp is the spitting image of our dog Milo and he came from Homesense, is perfect for a child’s room as he is plastic so damage proof!

Oooh, I do love a bright gender neutral nursery and Teddy’s one is full of such lovely details. I’ve gone for something similar with Anna’s but with all white walls – the dark grey though is super nice and the reclaimed wood just makes the whole space so warm and cosy. You’ve definitely given me a lots of ideas for when we come to update the nursery.
Not really related to the room design but I’m definitely missing a few photos here again just like on Charlotte’s house tour articles over on Rockmystyle. Maybe it’s just me wanting to have a good nose but I really like to see all the details which are mentioned in the article, like the rocking chair or wardrobes here.

Hi Kat, glad you like the bright too. I love a bit of colour. So sorry that you feel a few pics are missing. Unfortunately there was just so many details and the angles didn’t allow us to capture it all. Hopefully there is still enough loveliness to keep you inspired. xxx

It’s absolutely gorgeous and plenty of inspiring details as it is Lottie. It must be tough to capture everything x

[…] My favourite room was the last we decorated prior to the arrival of Ted, the nursery. The scaffold boards on the wall were a triumph; Chris had the idea as we were installing the wall to include shelves which were hugely helpful and fantastic to allow us to display items. To see the full nursery tour head over to Rock My Family. […]

I’ve only seen this room tour just now but was hoping to get a bit more information on the cloud mobile. Was it made or bought? It looks amazing – is it paper? I’d love to have a go at doing something similar in my son’s room. This is definitely one of my favourite nursery tours, I just love the colour and individuality here.
