I fondly remember one of the most exciting things for me about having a new baby on the way was getting to decorate the nursery. I wanted to rush right out and buy all the latest and greatest gear – I couldn’t wait. I did manage to wait until I was 20 weeks before I took the plunge, but once that milestone was reached there was no stopping me. Of course I needed to know the baby’s sex and I was delighted when they said girl and I began to imagine all the pinkness that would be my new baby nursery.
My little darling’s nursery was a mix of pink toile, pink stripes and Peter Rabbit wall decals. My mum started on a sewing frenzy, furniture was bought and my hubby was measuring up all over the place for shelves I wanted installed for all the knick-knacks I’d bought for my long awaited and dreamed for bundle. It was a wonderful time.
This is an example of the toile that I bought.
I spent hours on the internet and the only décor I could find for the nursery was from the US and it was way too expensive, so it was make it myself or have a plain room. Luckily, six years later there are many better options here in Australia and it’s so easy to design a beautiful nursery quite easily.
I find when decorating it works well to find a few signature pieces and then build your room around them. There are lots of different sites to check out and I warn you it can get addictive and time consuming.
I found this site with lots of designer nurseries which are great for some inspiration http://designdazzle.com/pages/babynurseries.htm. Some of my favourites here:
