Our old dining room wasn’t really being used as a dining space so I decided to rip up the old brown carpet and take down the old fashioned curtains and make the room into a play space for Nandy.
Anyone that knows me – knows that I’m a bit OCD about mess and I like everything to be put away; so I knew I wanted to keep my lounge as an adult space free from all the toys. Some may argue that kids should be allowed to make mess and explore but I personally would rather this be in a separate room.
I sought a lot of inspiration as to the stark black and white scheme on many instragram pages who promote mono themes. I knew, however, that I wanted to inject some colour into the mix, so I chose Teal.
One of my favourite insta shops Wonderah stock the most beautiful prints – I managed to purchase some uber cute ones which I had customised for his shelfie.
In addition to this, I purchased a gorgeous giant feltballs garland from the lovely the bear and the bird, this sits alongside some chevron bunting from Petite Fawn and the gorgeous cloud and rainbow garland from Velveteen babies and paper hanging decoration from indigo zebra!
I was certain I wanted Nandy to have a ball pit but the ones I’d seen were very expensive. After some serious insta searching I managed to locate one at a third of the cost which I was able to customised to my specific choice of ball colours.
I bought a small stool from Ikea so that when Nandy is older he has something to sit on, at the moment it’s acting as a holder for his “reading corner”.
He has this beautiful foam clip puzzle flooring from the modern nursery which his jumparoo sits on.
In the corner we have a rocking ladybird from mamas and papas which was given to him as a gift from his godparents.
Because Nandy already has quite a toy collection we needed somewhere to store them all. We have 2 storage set ups, the lego bricks from this modern life and the Ikea pull out storage benches like these.
How have you decorated your nurseries / playrooms? Any toy tips or ideas for me, I’d love to hear your opinions, comment below.
