I wanted this nursery to be a tranquil yet timeless space. The combination of subtle greys, soft pinks and white furniture is timeless and effortlessly stylish and ensures longevity. Taking inspiration from the vintage wallpaper tree art, I have accented this with brighter pinks and lime greens to punctuate the scheme and add freshness. The cotton curtains, have a playful embroidered band across the bottom featuring cats and birds, adding interest and fun to the scheme and contrasting well with the brighter pink linen blind. There is a useful mix of both open and closed storage. Contemporary pieces (such as the bunny nightlight and the grey acrylic storage stool) are mixed with vintage finds (including the wallpaper used for the tree and the antique children"s books) to create a unique room and one that complements the rest of the home. A sweet sanctuary.
It`s going to be tough to set a color story for your newborn that`s going to be able to serve your child all the way through high school, so, think about colors that you can adapt as they grow older. A newborn`s nursery all decked out in soft, baby pink and cream could easily transition into soft pink with gray or navy as they get older. Just think about using colors that you can combine in new ways to keep the room age-appropriate as your kids get older. Also keep non-traditional color stories as options. We did a marvelous nursery a few years back all in sage green and pale yellow. Sometimes avoiding traditional pink and light blue can give the space a bit more longevity.
When it comes to children"s decor, my eye is always drawn to white, airy rooms with playful details to add warmth and colour. Jenson"s gender neutral nursery is a perfect example of this, with his sweet ladybug bedding and special wooden toys out on display. There"s space to let him play unrestricted, with stylish storage boxes to tidy away any clutter afterwards. It"s also a room that can easily grow with him for years to come. Whilst monochrome is the trend of the moment, it can be surprisingly tricky to get right. The key is to find a balance and you can do this by adding in more soft tones and textures such as wooden accents, a fun wallpaper or contrasting prints. Not only does it make the space more interesting, but it doesn"t restrict you to one overly coordinated look. Have fun with styling and sourcing your key pieces and it will shine through in your child"s room!
