So it is just about time for me to have the baby (actually I am writing this at 4 days overdue … so it is definitely time now). It feels like it has been a very long time that I have been pregnant, although at the same time it has kind of flown by. I wanted to share the nursery design on the blog today, as it has just been completed (literally in the nick of time).  If you remember awhile back I created a mood board for this space (see it here). Although the vision did end up changing slightly, which can sometimes happen for me, I still kept with the overall look of raw woods and peachy clay tones, with an desert inspired decor palette. Another element that I really wanted to include was in fact (non) baby decor. I wanted to add in girl power books and abstract art that would appeal to us ladies (not just pieces made specially for a baby’s room) … I have a feeling the baby won’t mind though. I found some epic prints at Ferm Living and they fit in just perfectly with the color palette. I also included some art and girl power books of mine as well, to infuse some unexpected “cool” vibes into the room. Here is a little glimpse of the nursery, I hope you like it!

The Nursery

Message Board and Picasso sketch book (I found the Picasso book at a vintage book shop in Notting Hill).
A mixture of light raw woods, tribal patterned flat woven rug, wall hanging and footstool (all infusing that eclectic bohemian vibe into the space).
I fell in love with these abstract prints from Ferm Living. I found them just after I visited Antelope Canyon this year (see here). These canyon colors of orange, peach, clay and pale pinks were such an inspiration to me and these prints really fit that style perfectly.
Shelving … I am the biggest fan these Ikea ledges. I love them stacked with artwork in homes or filled with kids books in nurseries. I decided to do a mix of both and added fun framed prints, along with a mixture of kids and grown up books. (I stayed with this monochrome color palette, adding just touches of pale pinks).
Modern details with this concrete lamp, succulents and side table.
Desert inspired decor objects including this beautiful woven wall hanging, muted colored vases vases and classic baby moccasins.
I added these little Wallpaper Travel Guides which fit in with the color palette of the space (plus we love to travel so I thought it fit in with her family dynamic). I also added Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree” which was my favorite book as a child and the framed floral paper is the invitation from my baby shower.
Details of the wall ledges.
Geometric orange and brass baby mobile placed above the changing table (which is actually located inside the closet).
Room view (that is a little single bed on the left).
Girlboss Book (obvs).
I absolutely love this wallhanging I bought at the Lulu and Nat pop up in Notting Hill. It is designed by Juniper Weaves and I found this awesome wooden wall hook at Ikea (for £4).
Little People, Big Dreams are one of my favorite book series. I purchased the books about Coco Chanel, Frida Khalo, and Maya Angelou.

  1. I love it! You’ve done a beautiful job. I’m interested to know if you had your frames specially made for the artwork? I have a ton of things needing framing! Congratulations on sweet baby Grace, too.
