When I was putting together Holly’s nursery, a lot of ideas went into consideration – my own taste (modern, contemporary with a secret lust for vintage), what I wanted for my new baby (she WILL like butterflies!) and what would create a calming, happy environment for her. I knew I wanted pink to be in there, but not bright, in-your-face illuminous pink. When I came across the Cocalo bedding range at Babies R Us, I knew this was the one. I took my lead from this beautiful bedding and went from there.
So how can you put together your dream nursery? There are so may resources out there now that can help inspire you. A quick search on Google Images brings up a whole host of amazing ideas for you to start with, a trip to Project Nursery brings up more delicious designs, or how about this great Etsy team, Posh Nursery, who also have a facebook page, for some handmade touches? To demonstrate how I found my ideas, I picked one main item which would inspire the nursery. I decided to use this bunting as a jumping-off point:
Lime Green and Aqua Blue Bunting
Using this bunting, here are the inspirations I found:
