Favorite Items

I only bought items I truly loved, but the standouts for me are the "I Love You More" print from gusandlula on etsy.com -  as soon as I saw this print I fell in love! The driftwood hanging wardrobe that my husband and I made - inspired by Belinda @ The Happy Home blog and I think the striped walls make the whole room more cosy!

Advice

Only buy items you absolutely love, you'll be so thankful when the space comes together that you did!

    This room is absolutely gorgeous and incredibly inspirational! Brilliant creation for your little one! :)
    I’m really curious though – how did you hang the driftwood?

  4. 4

    Thank you all for your lovely comments!

    Belinda – my husband drilled in two bolts at both ends underneath the shelf, and then we attached the driftwood to the bolts using strong fishing line so it is almost invisible:)

    Thanks!

    A beautiful room! I love the driftwood hanging from the shelf. Can you tell me where you obtained the shelves from? I’m having a hard time finding some that will hold any amount of reasonable weight. Thanks.

    Hi Marcela – the shelves are just Lack shelves from Ikea, I love that you can’t see the brackets and they were very easy {for my husband} to put up:)

    Ana – thank you!

    I love this room!

    So much so in fact that I just bought that gorgeous clear stool! I’ve been searching everywhere for a small side table for a squeezy space next to the feeding chair in bubs’ room and that will fit the bill perfectly!

  10. 10

    Oh, and I forgot to ask where you got the circle rug from? I’ve been searching for one of those too! We obviously have very similar (read, fantastic!) taste :)

  11. 11

    Hi Vanessa,

    Thanks for your lovely comments – I love the stool too – it was originally in our lounge room but fits in perfectly with the nursery too!

    The rug was from dealsdirect.com.au it was only $30 including shipping!

    Good luck creating your nursery, I’m sure you’ll have as much fun as I did:)

    Hi Kelle-
    I absolutely love the stripes and was wondering if you have any tips on how to paint them? Did you do it yourself? What were the paint colors?

  13. 13

    Hi Liisa

    I think the trick with the stripes to pick two colours that are not too different so they don’t overwhelm the room. We were undergoing a big Reno at the time so we had our painter do the room, but basically he painted the whole room first using Dulux China Doll quarter strength and the following day used painters masking tape to mark of the width if the stripes we wanted (around 25cm for the grey stripes) and then he painted the stripes with Dulux Chocolate Shake.

    Top tip – by having a light stripe at both the top and bottom of the wall it seems to make the room seem taller!!

    Hope this helps!

    Kelle :)

    Hi Kelle
    I am fellow aussie and having all kinds of dramas getting started on my nursery, I havent been able to find any stores stocking gorgeous unusual bedding etc. Did you find any on your travels.. The worst thing about this site is there are so many beautiful ideas that we cant get out here. :)

    Hi Natalie

    I’m with you on that one – I found it very difficult to find nursery items that weren’t ‘cutesy’ from Australia. I had earlier on decided on plain white linen for the cot and accessorized with cushions to add colour. Once we decided in the colour scheme of blue and yellow (I have since added more yellow since these photos were taken), I kept an eye out everywhere I went for items that would suit the room and also had some meaning.
    I literally spent hour after hour on etsy searching for ideas and bits and pieces to dress the room – it was great to support home made products and there are so many good ideas on there! Most of the ‘stores’ are US based, but almost all offer reasonable shipping to AU. I loved waiting for them all to arrive piece by piece. You should be able to find bedding in here also, and the print are to die for.

    I hope you enjoy the process, take your time if you can – it took me about three months to put the room together as I didn’t want to just fill it with ‘stuff’!

    Good luck!

    Hi Kellie, your room is truly stunning. Where did you purchase the beautiful neural chair from?

  20. 20

    Thanks Marissa! I purchased the chair from a boutique homewares shop in my local shopping centre. However it is a popular style called a French Provincial chair, if you look on google you should be able to find a supplier local to you. Otherwise if you are in Australia like me I know that mattblatt.com.au sell them also.

    Hope this helps – happy shopping!!

    Otherwise the chair was from Abode in Robina Town Centre – they do tend to sell one-off pieces but you could always try them if you don’t like the Matt blatt ones.

    I got a sleigh change table (very similar to the style of my cot) on eBay! The store is called babythings3 and they sell brand new change tables! They may even sell other baby items too!

    Me too! Due date is tomorrow so just playing the waiting game now! I’m hoping he’s not going to come late, dying to meet him and getting quite uncomfortable now:( when are you due?

  26. 26

    OMG how exciting that is so lovely, how exciting for you. I hope you have a quick and easy labour :)

    My little one isn’t due until 15th Feb and we have just found out that we are having a BOY!!

  27. 27

    That’s fantastic! It’s so exciting when you find out what you are having – it made it seem so much more real! Best of luck:)

    Great job! I love almost everything about this room. I’m not a fan of grey for a nursery but these stripes are perfect!

    Hi Kelle
    Congratulations on the arrival of your little man.. I hope the labour was not too bad! I have finally made a start on the nursery, I bought some fabric and have decieded to make a quilt cover and matching cushion myself.
    Goodluck with bub, I hope you are enjoying him

  34. 34

    Aww thanks Natalie! Leaving hospital today -Can’t wait to take him home!

    Had a five hour, drug-free labour:) if I can recommend anything it was the Calmbirth course I did (I went to Sarah Whyte at Coomera), I honestly believe that’s what got me through!

    I’d love to hear how you go over the next few months, here’s my email address if you like kellehoward@msn.com.

    Best of luck – it really is the best gift you can ever get;)

    Kelle

    Hi Kelle,

    The greatest room!!! I absolutely adore it and i love the colour combination you made for the stripes. I tried to find the dulux chocolate shake and china doll as you mentioned but they did not have it in this brand. Is it possoble that they are from a different paint brand???

    I absolutely love this room. Doing it again, I would do the same! The colors are calm and everything match perfectly. I really like the idea of the tree branch. It’s original and unique! Congrats!!

    Hi Kelle,

    Your nursery is just stunning! Would you be interested in having your nursery used in a photoshoot? I am looking for a nursery such as this for my new brand of newborn clothing.

    Cheers

    Hi Kelle

    I’m re-creating your nursery here in England as I absolutely fell in love with what you have done – so beautiful. I’m having difficulty trying to track down the butterfly mobile and even looking on Adairs website (could possibly get a friend to post from Oz) I can’t find it. Do you know of any other companies who are selling it?

    Many thanks

    Sarah

  48. 48

    Hi Sarah
    If you go to etsy.com and search ‘butterfly mobile’ you will find several different sellers with plenty of different styles of mobiles! I would love to see a photo when it’s finished! My email address is kellehd@me.com

    Hope this helps!

    Kelle

    Kelle,

    Completely random and many months later I’m styling my nursery after yours as well! I’ve searched the dulux site and they don’t have a china doll color. Was it a different brand name matched in dulux paint?

    Thanks!

  50. 50

    Hi Brit
    It’s definitely Dulux China Doll – perhaps its a colour only available in Australia? It’s on the dulux.com.au site.
    Good luck with your nursery!

  51. 51

    Hi,

    I love your room! I was wondering what color your moraccan pouf is? Is it the sky blue or dark turquoise? I used Michael Miller’s Zoology in Sea fabric for the crib sheet and was wondering if it would match. Thanks!

  53. 53

    I love this room. I know it’s been a little while, but can you tell me what paint colors were used. I absolutely love the stripes..

  54. 54

    Hi Latoya
    Thanks! The colours are Dulux China Doll and Wattyl Chocolate Shake – hope this helps!

    Hi! I LOVE your room!!! So beautiful! I was wondering where you found your butterfly mobile? Thanks!

  59. 59

    Hi Kim

    The butterfly mobile is from Adairs, if you can’t get one from there search ‘butterfly mobile’ in etsy.com there are 100’s of different ones to choose from!
