The Nursery

Well, here it is… a complete view of our little nursery!  (Photographed at last)

You will remember the planning stages here,  the day Alex installed the book shelves in our ‘book nook’ here, and when we put up our rabbit hooks.  If you want a reminder of what it looked like before as our study, click here, or as our bathroom when we moved in back in 2014 click here.

Fixtures and fittings:

  • The chair in the book nook is an Eames LCW chair in black stained oak (purchased 4 years ago). It has found a new home in this little corner.
  • The green cushion on the chair is made with vintage house fabric from Habitat, purchased on Etsy store Retro68
  • The pink and coloured throw on the chair is from
  • The book shelves are in fact Mosslanda picture ledges from Ikea
  • The changing station is a standard changing mat that we velcro-fixed to the top of a set of three Nordli drawer units from Ikea to keep it in place.
  • The three little picture frames by the door are Ikea Hovsta picture frames. They are ‘birch effect’ – but are pretty convincing and ideal for inexpensive ‘art’. In our three frames there is a postcard I bought in Amsterdam last year, a photo of Alex and I when I was nine months pregnant, and one of the birth cards we received that had a cute message on it.
  • The Irish Moss seaweed print is a limited edition from Molesworth and Bird. I purchased it in a wonderful little design shop in Lyme Regis called Ryder and Hope where Alex and I went on our last trip away before our little one joined our family.  I got it framed at the Southbank Art Store.
  • The rug is from Wayfair – also available at the easier to navigate Modern Rugs website. I’d already purchased it for our study so used that as a starting point for the black and white and whitewashed with pops of colour colour scheme.
  • The black and white cross fabric is a Robert Kaufmann pattern which I purchased from Etsy store Modes4u. I got my friend Cathy to make a quilt out of some of it.
  • I also got a blackout roller blind made by Crosby Blinds. There you can supply your own custom fabric and so I provided them with more of the same fabric.
  • I hung all our birth cards on a black ribbon which I nailed to one of the ceiling beams to add a splash of colour.
  • Paper swan mobile from The Scandinavian Design Company
  • And lastly, the three little wooden animals on the window sill I picked up at a street market in Prague years and years ago when I first arrived in the UK in 2004.
