When planning the nursery I decided I didn’t want to find out the sex of the baby, so the nursery theme had to be gender neutral. I am impatient so decorated prior to the 20 week scan.
It all started with the wallpaper, which I chose from next. The geo print wallpaper was neutral in my opinion and acted as a great base from which to build on.
We had the walls painted in ‘pebble’ colour by dulux as this seemed to match the grey tone of the wallpaper perfectly.
It wasn’t long before I discovered the delights of insta shopping and made a few custom purchases! The lovely ladies over at the The Bear and the Bird worked with me to create a beautiful clay and feltball triangle decoration and matching garland which can be seen strung below.
We had a lovely wooden box which was handpainted to match his theme perfectly from Happy little folks and this came in handy for on his changing table to store all his creams and wipes in!
I found some great Ikea hack ideas before we had Nandy, and took inspiration to use the Hemnes 8 drawer chest as a changing unit, Ive divided the drawers up so that they contain the nappies and muslin cloths making those bum changes as efficient as possible!
We found the most perfect triangle print blanket from humble and weave which makes an epic addition to his cot.
The feeding / nursing chair was a bargain buy from Dunelm!
I couldnt live without the beautiful Mama designs cellular blanket which I bought from her at the baby show in grey and mint, I wrap it around my shoulders on a cold evening when feeding Nandy at 3am!
It turns out we did find out the sex of the baby in the end – but I wouldnt change my choices as I truly feel the mint / grey and ochre work well for a boy.
