I live in Melbourne, Australia, and I am a big supporter of handmade/small businesses. I love to share all the things I love—from clothing, interior design and product styling all the way to my most cherished little family of four. My love of interior design and styling also runs deep, with my own home being a constant source of inspiration and DIY projects. I’ve also recently launched my own interior styling service.
Where did you pull inspiration for your nursery design?
I love scrolling Pinterest and find a lot of inspiration from there. I also find inspiration from art and finding prints or colors that I love and playing around to see what does and what doesn’t work
What part of the design process did you enjoy the most?
I love finding the products and creating different mood boards to visually see what works best. I love being creative, so I find putting these ideas together enjoyable. And, of course, I love the end result—seeing it all come together and witnessing the reactions from my daughter and others to the space.
What is your favorite part or detail in your daughter’s room?
The wallpaper! I am a person who usually gets bored of things easily and needs to change things up. But this wallpaper from Minnie and Me Interiors…I am just in love with it. And honestly, I cannot see myself ever getting sick of it. It’s just so beautiful, and it matches Indi perfectly because she loves flowers.
What is one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when starting their own nursery design project?
Stay true to what you love. Whenever I am indecisive about what product to choose, I always ask myself “which do you love more” and not to worry about what other people might think or prefer. This is your own home, so you have to be happy with the end result. Initially, when planning a nursery, it can be overwhelming, so start by picking your key pieces and then plan around those. It could be artwork, wall color or something as small as a pillow that you love that can inspire you. Look for secondhand items or cheaper options if you’re concerned about the cost. It’s so easy to get carried away with the process, but there are so many amazing websites out there where you can find pre-loved pieces to save some money. For example, Indi’s wardrobe sells for over $800 brand new, but I managed to find the exact same one secondhand for $150!
