Planning LL’s nursery was so exciting. I had all these ideas whirling around in my head, so the first thing I did was start a Pinterest Board. Here I could collect ideas and log inspiration. If you haven’t discovered Pinterest, then you must! I’m addicted and have so many boards. Once you start pinning it’s hard to stop!
For the colour scheme of the nursery we loved the idea of grey and mint with hints of peach and pink. I love the idea of having a neutral colour palette and the adding pops of colour depending on your little ones gender. We found a gorgeous grey polka dot wallpaper for the main feature wall and chimney breast, and painted the other walls a fresh mint shade. We went with a Woodland theme, so I shopped around for ornaments and other bits and pieces featuring woodland critters. Beatrix Potter is loved dearly in our house so we had to feature the books and characters in there, too. As time has gone by we’ve added to it to customise it to LL’s personality. The Range and Dunelm are fantastic places and we purchased a lot from there. It’s reasonably priced and there is inspiration everywhere in their displays and the items are lovely quality. Craft fairs are perfect places to pick up unique and individual pieces. It’s also lovely to support local crafters. Car boot sales and charity shops hold hidden gems so check these out, too.
