Throughout my pregnancy, the only thing that came second to my baby's health, was finishing his nursery! The room was a big part of my pregnancy, and when I was admitted to hospital at 30 weeks, I thought I would never get it done! However, my wonderful family finished my room for me by 34 weeks, when Max was born!
I painted the room a gender neutral colour that I liked and pretty much went on from there! I figured that if I was having a girl, I could use pink, for a boy, yellow. I wanted a room that was visually stimulating and pretty. I was intent on using owls as a theme for my room, but had trouble finding owl themed decor for a boy's room. However, I stumbled across Myer's Licorice range and fell in love! I bought one of everything. :)
I am a bold and colourful person, and I would like that to reflect on my decorating style. I aim for deep bold colours that light up the whole room, with bright accents and cute touches.
The owl bed sheets, bookends, plush toy and photo frames are all the Licorice brand found at Myer. A lot of my little touches, such as the letters and lanterns came from $2 shops in my area. The little bookshelf was an old dvd case that my partner had in his bachelor life. I brought it back to life by sanding it and painting it white.
I'm in love with those owl bookends. They're so cute.
A nursery doesn't have to cost thousands of dollars. All up I spent around $600. I sourced a lot of things from junk shops, and gave old or second hand items a new life.
