Christian’s Nursery

Happy Monday!!

Two weeks ago I showed you some snaps of Chet’s room and the response was so amazing. Thank you for stopping by and also commenting on my instagram photos. It was and still is, a work in progress but I think that will always be the case when you work in interiors. Luckily I have other children’s rooms to create magic in and I was over the moon to install Christian’s nursery recently.

This is the second boy’s room I have done for Jemma and Ben, and I honestly could not wish for nicer clients. Jemma- you’re awesome! Thank you for trusting me and never doubting my ideas (and there’s a lot of them.) Anyway, I also created their son Thomas’s toddler bedroom late last year which was featured in the Annual Edition of Minty Magazine. I will blog about it in the coming weeks but if you can’t wait for the post to go live, you can grab a magazine copy here.

When designing this nursery, the idea was to create a soft, cosy space that is versatile enough to become a toddler bedroom in a couple of years time. We also wanted to keep the look of both boy’s bedrooms consistent so we chose Oeuf NYC furniture again. This ensures that the furniture style and colours are the same in both rooms, however the individual pieces are different.

We started from scratch and the only thing Jemma had already purchased for the room was the Moln Clouds wallpaper. This was music to my ears because I have seen it in person (in my friend’s little girl’s nursery) and it’s so dreamy. We wanted to stick to a fairly neutral colour palette but also bring in warmth by adding beige and taupe alongside the grey. I used lots of textured pieces like the Jujo Baby blankets and Hides of Excellence hide to create lush layers, which added to the cosy look we wanted to achieve.

One thing Jemma really wanted to incorporate into the room was a rocking chair. You can’t go past the quality and versatility of a Hobbe rocking chair, so we locked this firmly in as one of our first purchases. The grey upholstery works perfectly back with the wallpaper, where the white legs suit the timber finish of the cot, framed artwork and dresser. If you’re looking for a comfortable and well crafted nursing chair, this rocker is definitely worth looking at.

I am really happy with the way Christian’s nursery turned out and more importantly Jemma and the family love it. It makes my job even more satisfying knowing it is exactly what my client’s dreamed of. I suppose I should show you some more images and start listing all my fabulous suppliers. I hope you have a lovely week!

Much Love,

  1. Hello! Congratulations on the amazing and beautifully styled nursery, I really loved it! I’m trying to style myself a neutral nursery for my baby boy and this one really inspires me πŸ˜‰
    Could you please tell me where is the storage pom pom basket from? It’s gorgeous!

  2. Hi Tarina,

    This nursery is so beautiful. I love how it’s so cohesive and everything compliments each other. I am trying to put together a new bedroom for my six year old daughter and would love to know how you do the mood board. I think it might help me be able to visualise all the elements going into the room. If only you were in nz and could come and do it all for me!
