Nursery plans


It didn't take too long before the excitement of expecting a baby spilled over into a newfound excitement over creating a special space for our little one. I want to design a room that still flows with the soft, neutral palette of the rest of the home, but also captures just a bit of magic to inspire a young imagination. While it's easy to get carried away in the beautiful world of Pinterest with calm pastel toned nurseries filled with elegant furniture, fine antiques and handmade wooden toys, I also accept that a children's room will naturally attract bright vibrant colours and the inevitable bits of bright plastic. Keeping this in mind I'm trying to create a space that is light and neutral in soft white and grey tones, but where a few bright colours don't look out of place and a colourful toy may seem like more of a fun accent rather than something garish and clashing. My first purchase, was of course, highly practical - a large, oversized plush giraffe. From there most of the room is in grey and white with a few accents in lilac and soft blue. Here are a few inspirational images and pieces on the shopping list...

I love the butterfly art. It would go so well into your nursery. I think going neutral and soft with a pop of colour here and there is a great idea. You can just update the room with new additions as you baby girl grows and her needs change.
