I had been stalking Binky Nixon’s son Walt’s nursery on instagram for a while – it’s just so full of colour and fun. Whilst we were still in the design stage of Rock My Family I thought it would be a travesty if I didn’t ask her to share it with you folks (and from a completely selfish perspective, get to have a nosey at even more of the details for myself) so it’s been a long time coming!

Apologies in advance if you want to buy every single item we have linked to – there is also a gallery full of even more nursery decor detail at the bottom of this post.

When coming to decorate Walter’s room I knew that I wanted grey somewhere, as any other room that’s painted grey in my house I have never got bored of. I found this lovely striped wallpaper in Homebase, of all places, and knew that would fit perfect for him. I wanted to inject colour in other areas, i.e. toys, signs and animal heads hehe! I was determined not to have lots of plastic fantastic everywhere and just have a nice room filled with colour and fun. Finding my own ‘Paddington Bear’ was great as I really wanted Walt to have it.

I had collected lots of little things over the years, not necessarily for a nursery just things that I really liked. The little glass balloons were bought in Venice whilst on a city break. The mustard blanket I bought from Etsy which was hand knitted in the States.

The suitcase was the first thing I bought after finding out I was pregnant, its one of Cath Kidston’s prints and I love it. The retro radio is actually a CD player, I tracked this down on Ebay and it is from Germany. The lovely wooden peg dolls were a gift but you can buy them from John Lewis.

I have collected lots of books from car boot sales, also some of his blankets and the red elephant, just a steal for 50p. The pom poms and lampshade are from Ikea. His shoe rack is an old crate which I bid for on eBay. The little star quote was something I had made on NOTHS, It’s my favourite quote ever and I wanted it printed onto something to display. The blue metal sign was also a gift.

My favourite thing of all (and one which at first my husband really didn’t like) are the animal felt heads. I saw them years ago in a shop near the coast and always thought if I have a baby I am going to buy one for their room. Well I bought two (I would have them all if I could), I just love them.

Oh one thing I must mention was that my hubs made and built the shelves out of old scaffold boards; he’s a tad proud of them!
