Coral, Lemon and Mint Girl’s Nursery

Leah’s nursery can be described as an eclectic mix of soft colours for the most precious blessing and miracle…
I’m not a “pink mom”, so needed to create a space that was special and pretty, without being too pink and over the top. I didn’t initially have a clear picture in mind, which was challenging at times, but as soppy as it sounds, I guess love guided me.
I knew the essential elements that I wanted and saved for those so that they could be the best I could afford. I also wanted a practical space, which I achieved by adding a daybed into the bay window that we added to make the room a little bigger. This will eventually be her bed when she is older, but also means that if I need I have a place to sleep during midnight mayhem.
Once the main items were in (daybed, cot, chest and rocking chair), I spent months adding little pieces here and there and the project grew with my pregnancy. It was an emotional and amazing feeling when the room was finally finished, although you don’t see the mosquito net that was too late by the time these pictures were taken.
The main items are also neutral enough to suit a boy’s nursery in case Leah has a brother in the future.
