This week we finally were able to reveal our beautiful new nursery, much to the delight of one exhausted and relieved hubby.
After many months of planning, ordering products, arranging, rearranging and then changing our mind yet again, I’m very proud to announce that we’re all delighted with the result.
The first thing you’ll notice is the tranquil ambience of the room. We opted for a soft, calming presence that would be suitable for a young baby – who knows, maybe it will finally help her fall asleep! At the same time, we still wanted it to be trendy and girly; we decided the floral theme was the perfect way to achieve both. Needless to say, we’re both loving the final look.
The colour scheme was also crucial in maintaining the right feel for the room – too bright and the room wouldn’t feel tranquil. The soft grey, dusty pink and subtle touches of rose gold give the perfect mix of fashion and peacefulness and compliment the beautiful array of features in the room.
And those features!
Where to begin? A stunning set of items was carefully chosen to create the three perfect baby areas: a relaxing corner with a gorgeous rocking chair for mum and bub to unwind in style; a reading nook with a canopy where Sienah can enjoy her favourite bedtime stories, and of course the play gym and rocking sheep to compliment her new favourite play area. All of the items were meticulously chosen for their style and quality from an array of small businesses both within Australia and abroad – many of them handmade by extremely talented mums!
And the result… Well, the result speaks for itself really – breathtaking.
So why did we choose these products in particular? Apart from the look and quality and the fact that we love to support small businesses, particularly from other mums, there were also practical reasons. We’ve chosen products that Sienah can immediately enjoy (sometimes with the help of a parent), but which she can also continue enjoying as she grows. When she’s finally ready for a big girl’s room, our beautiful baby can continue loving her favourite items for many years to come.
Finally, we want to put out a huge thank you to all those wonderful stores who worked tirelessly with us to achieve the amazing finish that we did! It really was a large team effort (with 100 stores supplying products in the end!) and each store put so much love into the process.
I would highly recommend each of them in a heartbeat, but that’s a blog for another day 😉
