Our house is surrounded by woodland and trees so I wanted our son's nursery to showcase the animals he would see every day. I knew I wanted woodland themed.
I teamed up with Elisabeth from Etsy E Design shop Crowning Joie Designs. Elisabeth worked with me to bring my vision for a woodland themed nursery to life. I had seen Cedar Tree wallpaper on Project Nursery website early on in my pregnancy and LOVED it. This was our starting point/ inspiration and it went from there! the final result is a beautiful, mid century/ modern /Scandinavian /woodland themed nursery and its the nursery of my dreams!
My tips and advice are:
1. invest in affordable design help like Crowning Joie, it is a great idea to do this before you start to spend money... it really helps to have expertise, direction and insight for your vision, an Etsy shop like Crowning Joie is an easy, affordable way to do it. My final months of pregnancy and labour happened during Covid 19 Quarantine so I couldn't get out and shop. An Online shopping list was key when I couldn't go out and browse the shops.
2. Start with an item that you love and let everything else flow from there!
My little boy arrived in May and LOVES his room, especially the wallpaper!
