It's been over a month since my last post, but please excuse me, I've got a little person to look after and, as you can imagine, it's very much time-consuming.
He's asleep now, finally, so I thought I'll share with you some pictures from his colourful nursery.
We tried to keep the room gender neutral and make it fun for little Tommy to look around and enjoy.
We were very happy with the room prior to its transformation, so the colour scheme was based on Roy Lichtenstein’s pop-art print above the fireplace.
We used yellow, red, blue and green throughout the space to make it eye-catching and exciting. Colourful bunting and paper honeycombs are an easy way to brighten up the room.
Also, we created two playful gallery walls for the little one to look at. We repainted some old frames and used some spare, colourful postcards of animals, cartoon characters like Moomins, food etc. to match the overall scheme.
My good friend Claire made for us an amazing baby mobile, which Tommy loves looking at whilst being fed.
Overall, the room transformation did not cost us much as we tried to reuse our existing furniture or buy things on ebay.
Also, we are blessed with very generous friends and family who gave us bits and pieces like toys and baby’s equipment. Thank you very much.
I totally recommend browsing the following shops when looking to decorate baby’s room:
Ikea (great for toys and storage), Homesense (décor and accessories), London Transport Museum (great prints and accessories), The Moomin Shop (for Moomins-related accessories; I’m a bit of a fan of Tove Jansson), and last but not least Hobbycraft (when you feel creative and have some spare time to experiment).
Hope you like the room we created and you feel inspired.
