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!
