A few weeks ago I was still trying to decide what theme we wanted to go for with the nursery. I was spending hours browsing Pinterest looking for inspiration and found some beautiful ideas. I managed to narrow it down to my five favourite wallpapers for the nursery, and eventually it came down to a choice of two. Whilst one was undeniably stunning my husband and I both agreed it was a little bit too pricey and so we have decided to go for a woodland theme, aiming for a similar look to this nursery I found on Pinterest.
I adore the Cole and Son woods wallpaper, but am choosing to have the version with the stars intertwined in the trees.
Whilst the wallpaper creates the perfect backdrop the key to achieving the “woodland” look will come down to the accessories (lots more hours lost trawling the internet for inspiration). Here’s a few ideas (and a few purchases) which I’m thinking will style the nursery once the painting and papering is done.
How adorable is this bunny clock from Asda and what a bargain at £12? The little baskets were from TK Maxx and I was planning on putting them in the wardrobe for storage but they are almost too cute to be hidden away.
These prints from Etsy will definitely not be hidden away. I love the mix of greys and orange with the chevron background and the characters are perfect for a nursery.
What a sweet touch this little chap would make on top of the door? I just need to track down where we can find him!
I’d seen this idea on Pinterest and had loved it instantly, and was delighted when the fabulous Rachel over at The Ordinary Lovely wrote a post about how to create your own. This is my little DIY craft project for the Easter holidays, although as we’re still undecided about baby boy’s name I may have to choose another word to use to begin with.
I get a little bit carried away when looking through Pinterest (and my new obsession, scrolling through Etsy) and I have to remind myself that we can’t buy everything I see on the walls, but I may have to make a little room for this bird house night light.
O’s new bedroom furniture is arriving later this week and then it will be all systems go on getting the nursery sorted. With a maximum of 13 weeks to go before our new little man arrives we need to get his room organised and I can’t wait to have the nursery all ready and waiting for him, and to be able to give you a full tour!
Oh, and if he is having a woodland themed nursery it’s only right that he should look the part. I just couldn’t resist buying him these Joules fox trousers to go with his room!
