A Dreamy Nursery…

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.

    • Thanks so much. I feel so proud of it.

      Although its made me feel guilty, everytime i go into sebastians room, i wish is was nicer. His will have to wait until we make it into a toddler room for a big make over!

      I can start pinning for that now!

  1. Oh I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this. Funnily enough if you look on my pinterest I have been frantically pinning cloud nurseries as I am thinking about redoing LL’s. That or hot air balloons or a mixture of both. This is just gorgeous! x

    • Thanks Katie.

      Pinterest can be quite dangerous! So much beautiful inspiration… I’m so happy with the way its turned out.

      Funny you should say that about the baloons… I’ve a whole load of tissue paper ready to be made into pom-poms / permanant ballons for above the changing table.

  2. Love this colour palette! Where did you find the plain mint cot sheet? Sheets seem to be impossible to find in anything other than pink, blue or cream! xx

  3. Thanks so much for the reply! I will definitely check that out on eBay. If you don’t do the “matchy-matchy” cot bedding sets, there just seem to be hardly any options out there – maybe I need to start some sort of modern sheet/bedding business, ha! 😉 Oh and you totally scored with those pillows from Matalan! I looked on their website, but think they must already be gone – love the mint chevron especially, great find! x
