Stars and Animals Amid A Gender Neutral Nursery


I wanted a gender neutral nursery as I thought I'd be able to keep the gender a surprise during my pregnancy. My first trip to the shops when I was looking at furniture convinced me that I was desperate to find out what I was having!

My aim was to have neutral/white furniture, a feature wall that would be suitable regardless of the gender, and that I could impart colour once bubs had arrived. I'm a massive animal lover, so thought that I could also share my love of animals with my future children.

Design Inspiration

I fell in love with the Sissy & Marley designed nurseries - I loved the balance of the white, and the gender neutral designs. It was when I was looking at their nurseries that I came across the Jill Malek range of wallpaper. I loved the stars, and thought I'd be able to attempt something similar with my own nursery.

Favorite Items

I love how the decals turned out. They were a labour of love though. I spent numerous days using a laser level, string, masking tape - everything really! And in the end, just placed them by eye!

I spent days afterwards just going into the nursery and staring at the wall :)
