I love having a look at how people choose to style their home; which pieces they pick to go where; how much or how little they add to the space; what colour palate the decide to go with. I feel it gives you a truer sense of who they really are, you can really see their personality shine through.
Sebastian’s nursery is one of my most favourite rooms in our house. It is a constant reminder of how precious time really is, as I know all too soon we will be changing his room to a ‘big boy’ toddler room. In fact I am pinning ideas like mad as this goes up. I love the fact we have kept his nursery a ‘little boys’ room as he is only this little for such a short time. There will be years and years for him to have that ‘big boys’ racing car bedroom that Daddy so wants him to have.
My Aunty in Australia made the cot quilt for Sebastian and I absolutely love it. It is lovely and snuggly and fits the room perfectly. In fact the rest of the room was styled around it. My mum and I pulled the colours for the bunting from the quilt and I painted the canvas with little feet to match the same blue.
Steve made the shelves / bookcase just inside the door to perfectly fit the space and is a great place to add nick nacks and personalise the room some more. There is the blue teddy from his Great Nana; personalised engraved money box from his Aunty and cousins; some favourite soft toys; a selection of books and the all important collection of trucks (which EVERY boys needs in easy playing reach).
The tops of his drawers have been kept simple: the bunny from my baby shower nappy cake with blue ribbon to coordinate (of course); B.A.B.Y letters also from baby shower which will be used for number two when the time comes and some wooden cars which were his Daddy’s. I was super excited to add these to his room not so long ago and he loves playing with them. They are at just the perfect spot where he can get them down.
I love it. I love the touches of handmade, of new and old. To me, its the perfect little boys room. What do you think of Sebastian’s nursery / bedroom? Have you posted about your kids rooms? Leave me the link, I’d love to have a look – maybe even get some inspiration for his ‘big boy’ room.
***Now to clear up any confusion… His room doesn’t always look this tidy, I did a quick ‘lick and a promise clean’ to rehouse any books and toys which made their way out, back into the wardrobe before Steve took these while I entertained Sebastian in the lounge so he couldn’t help***
