The Nursery

Tuesday, 13 June 2017

Ok, so the nursery is an ongoing project and really it is almost there but I think that the finishing, finishing, finishing touches will have to wait as 1. I am far to exhausted to do anything and 2. I am already on my Maternity Allowance and well there isn't much disposable income.

Although I know we are having a little boy, I'm not the biggest fan of baby blue and think that it can be quite sickly to be frank. So I went for a more gender neutral colour scheme of white,grey,mint, (a hint of) baby blue and cream which can also grow with the baby quite easily.

I painted the nursery when I was about 24-27 weeks pregnant in Ammonite by Farrow and Ball we already had the IKEA furniture but I had Tom secure them to the walls after reading a whole host of horror stories about drawers falling on top of babies and toddlers. The nursery is our box room so there is no room for a wardrobe so we popped up an oak peg rail to hang up special outfits and things that can't get creased, which is a great space saver.
The tall unit in the corner houses a host of wicker baskets (anyone else have an addiction to these?) which contain everything for changing,burping,washing the baby as well as muslin cloths and baby blankets.
The main cot is a cot bed that we got from Mothercare it's white with an oak trim and the sides can be removed and converted into a toddler bed. But for the moment he will be in our bedroom in the Snuzpod.

I am yet to find the perfect cot mobile, stickers or garland for above the cot as well as some cute bedding! I just have white at the moment. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated in the comments.
