A large gold polka dot wall is the backdrop to this little princess’s nursery. It was essential that we designed a really comfy reading and nursing corner too as this is where hours would be spent during the days and nights. The wall was painted in a dusty pink and we used gold decals to give it the ‘wow’. Crushed linen curtains in a pastel grey created the soft border to the windows. In the end it turned out to be a beautiful, classic and soothing nursery.
Our little monster turned one on Saturday and we decided what would be more fitting than a Little Monster themed birthday party.
We chose bright colours that pop with joy! Everything was home made by me (mum). I sewed little monsters out of felt with the sign ‘Adopt a Monster’ for each child to take home with them. Each gift bag was personalised and had a little monster badge on that I cut out and designed myself. Inside the gift bag was a bottle of bubbles, play dough, stickers and a slinky, closed with a glitter peg and name tag.
We decorated the table in a green, orange and blue theme. I made paper bunting for the walls and used blue lanterns for the backdrop. We had an array of food, including marshmallow dipped monster heads, star sandwiches, monster cupcakes and sugar free blueberry muffins for the kids… and the cake of course! Chocolate with vanilla buttercream icing, and a fondant bottom.
One year down – can’t wait to start planning the next party!
Whats better than a decorative throw pillow to style a crib? Um, I know – a throw pillow in the shape of a cloud…and a tear…and chevron sheets! Adorning 2016’s trendiest colour palette for girls, pink and grey!
I had the pleasure of adding a little styling to Miescha’s nursery (which was pretty awesome to begin with), aiming to create warmth, balance and texture through a bit of layering with the use of rugs, throw pillows, blankets and mobiles; creating a room fit for only the finest of princesses.
I wanted my sons electric nursery to be vibrant and impactful so I set out to find a wallpaper that created a ‘wow’ to the wall. The remix design I found wouldn’t typically be used in a nursery, but i loved the vibe it was giving off so I couldn’t resist. To soften what could be quite a harsh pattern, I chose a nursing chair that had a retro feel, as well as a crib with gentler lines to it. I featured my husbands ‘A-team’ toy models on the wall, which i thought was a really special touch. We joke and say that he can feel safe as the ‘A team’ are watching over him.
Every corner of the nursery was carefully considered, and has its own special something!
