I have to admit now, i have always had a grey and yellow obsession. I love the colour palete and think it works so well together. I even have a whole grey and yellow wedding mood board stored away for future reference. I have been trying to convince Dadda for almost 5 years to let me re-decorate one of the rooms in our house with grey and yellow. Who am i kidding, the whole house grey & yellow!! I finally got my chance when creating our new arrivals nursery!
We decided to use the study-cum-dumping ground as the new nursery, as Sebastian is still so little, and sleeps so well in his cot, we left his bedroom well alone. Plus, the study was never used! The laptop perched on the desk has never been turned on and I only use the room every December to store and wrap all the christmas presents and throw other general bits and bobs that dont really have a home anywhere else!
During my pregnancy i have developed a HUGE cloud obsession, i think it was orignally spawned by reading www.breathehappiness.co.uk as the lovely Hayley & Shaneen also seem to share my love of fluffy dreamy clouds. They posted this blog post and my lust list went into over drive! The post also exposed me to the gorgeous website http://www.themodernbaby.co.uk/ I then began to create a Pinterest board of grey & yellow cloudy lovelyness. My board can be seen here… http://pinterest.com/kellpops/nursery-ideas/
I am so unbeleiveably happy with the way it has turned out and so glad we took the risk of wallpaping such a small room in grey wallpaper. I have found some wonderful suppliers and businesses through my search to find all the items for the nursery and watching it all come together has been so much fun. Although one of the best bits had to be unpacking all of Sebastians baby clothes and putting them in the wardrobes & draws, finding my favourite little outfits and bringing back memories of when he was small.
