We're so excited to FINALLY be sharing Rose's finished Nursery on here... it's been a work in progress for quite a while and although we did have all the furniture in place prior to her arrival, we wanted to wait and see who she would be before adding a few personal touches and colour to the room.
Instead of going for the popular grey theme, we decided to go for something calm, subtly themed towards boy/girl which also looked smart in our home... we'd rather have it looking how we like it and then let her get creative in a few years on things she would like (lets hope we don't regret that hey!)
Ok so the walls... finding a paint colour we loved was a challenge and we wanted to make sure it was pink whilst remaining warm, light and not in-your-face! Bright marshmallow pink was definitely not the idea and we literally went through 20 tester pots. We painted the lower half of the wall in a colour we thought would work but it still to dark and realised what we wanted wasn't actually out there. Eventually we found what we wanted by customising our own colour; mixing 1 part Farrow & Ball Calamine to 5 parts Crown Aged White - Eve's idea and it was genius! We would have moved Rose into her own room earlier however had to get the painting done first, Eve surprised us with it being totally finished one day when I came home from work!
The Reading/Feeding Corner
This was something we really wanted to nail, a comfy-seated corner for us and baby that would be perfect for new born and future bed times with Rose as a young child. The Rocking Chair* and Footstool* are part of the Serena range from Gaia Baby, the chair works perfectly as it has a wide seat making it ideal for nursing but also for an adult and child to sit and read next to each other in years to come! It has a gentle rock and the removable arm covers - life saver! The footstool is really deep so makes for great storage which is definitely something needed in a baby room - ours contains nappies and wipes!
For the small space available we struggled to find a side table that worked until we stumbled upon this marble effect side table on Wayfair. It serves perfectly for putting down bottles, dummies and being a perfect place for Rose's Bunny Rabbit lamp - one our favourite finds! We wanted a soft light to create a calm night time vibe, for reading books and checking nappies but wanted it to be fun and childlike so found this rabbit lamp in Silver and sprayed it gold - only to find a gold version online the next day, doh!
The wooden star keepsake was actually a gift from a viewer and works perfectly here! The Marble & Gold coaster is from John Lewis and we bought it with 2 others that say 'Mum' and 'Dad'.
We didn't want anything too heavy on the walls above where Rose sleeps or sits so decided to keep her books in a different place. The wall details include a sleeping moon basket (which we've yet to decide what to put in there). There is also a framed print of a Rose flower above the chair from Desenio - a little detail we added after deciding on Rose's name, definitely a fitting touch for her room we think.
On the window sill we added some building blocks that she is currently loving playing with after a nap, in pink and white with the letters of her name and a few hearts - just a little addition that makes it a little more 'baby room'.
The Changing Corner
The shelf above the changing corner features a few decorative items. Eve always wanted a small photo of our wedding in the room which we've placed into a gold frame. To add some greenery we put up this IKEA hanging plant and we found this 'tell a beautiful story' star in Dunelm years before having Rose but it is perfect for a baby room.
To add a little baby pink to the room we bought this pyramid stacking toy from Etsy and although it costs more than the plastic versions,, the quality and wooden finish is really beautiful and are pleased we went for it! Photography and videography is of course one off our passions and we saw this wooden camera on Mrs Hinch's instagram story and knew we had to get one, it's strapped around a super soft 'bashful bunny' teddy from Jelly Cat.
The cot is a pretty central part to a nursery and we decided on the SnüzKot Scandi cot bed* for it's modern and neutral style. It'll see us right through as it can convert to a toddler bed, so it's ideal for Rose as we've already lowered the mattress and she's growing so fast. We love the open sides as when we open her nursery door in the morning we get a big grin and a giggle!
We use both the fitted sheets and mattress protector from Snüz as they fit it perfectly compared to a John Lewis one we bought before getting the cot. Rose also has a Bonnie Bunny comforters from The Little White Company in her cot that she adores - we honestly feel that it helps her get through the night as when she wakes up she looks for it and goes back to sleep.
We came across an Not On The Highstreet store that made beautiful hanging mobiles of animals sleeping on the moon. They do bespoke orders so we had this Turbo & Jet (our cats) mobile made to hang above Rose's cot - a gift that Rose's Grammy (Eve's Mum) bought for us and it adds really a beautiful, personal touch to the room.
