AD | This post contains some product from brand partnerships, but as always I only ever work with brands that I love and that fit my home interior and style.
It’s finally finished! It took us a little while longer due to lockdown delays but the nursery is finished and in plenty of time before Nova will be sleeping in there, the little lady is only 8 weeks old at the moment so still in her bedside crib in with us.
I love the minimal feel in here at the moment but I will gradually be adding more accessories here and there as Nova’s personality grows – so it won’t be quite so bare as time goes on, but I did always plan on having more of a gender-neutral nursery for her, I’m not a big believer in ‘pink is for girls’ and ‘blue is for boys’.
The whole sea theme was completely inspired by this Ferm Living x Katie Scott Shells Wallpaper and the rest of the room was styled around the wallpaper! Plus last year we went to the Maldives on our honeymoon where I learnt to dive and swam with whale sharks which was pretty magical so it all seemed pretty fitting. I want Nova to grow up loving the ocean and sea animals like we do.
I had my heart set on having a matching three-piece furniture set in here (changing table, wardrobe and cot) and knew this Cam Cam Copenhagen Harlequin set in ‘sand’ from The Natural Baby Shower was the perfect option after seeing at a trade show back in January, I just fell in love with it. I wanted furniture that would last so getting a cot that converts into a toddler bed afterwards made total sense. The wardrobe is really practical too, unlike most wardrobes that only have a rail, it has a rail, shelves and drawers so I haven’t been short for space – and trust me, Nova has a lot of clothes! The other crucial piece of furniture in here was the armchair – where I spend hours feeding Nova, where we will read her bed-time stories. I opted for a swivel chair rather than a rocking chair and boy oh boy is it comfortable.
We had the same carpet installed in here as we do in our bedroom and hallway upstairs – Elements Symphony Paris, we toyed with having laminate but our floorboards are quite creaky so carpet seemed the best option since we will have to creep out of here quietly after putting her to bed in the near future! Similarly for the windows, we got the same shutters as we have upstairs in the rest of the house and they have transformed the room!
So what do you think of Nova’s nursery?
