Dylan's new nursery is bigger than his last one and was painted a dark shade of brown when we moved in. Although the colour was lovely, all of his furniture is white, grey and light blue and so we decided to paint the walls before settling him in there. At our last house, I spent a long time dreaming up my perfect nursery and lovingly cut out wallpaper shapes for a feature wall, matching the carpet and paint and designing the whole room around this wallpaper.
Unfortunately this time I do not have the same amount of time and money and his room is not quite the perfect haven it once was. It won't be long until we are redecorating though and we have already been discussing themes for a fun toddler room - animals, cars, underwater . . .
Even though the perfectionist in me is disappointed, his room looks lovely and with more space we have more options. His furniture is a set from Mamas and Papas in white, and his bedding is a lovely grey and white set from Matalan. His toy chest was a Christmas present last year, along with his Dylan train, and the wall pictures are hand painted (not by me though!)
His room still feels calm and quiet - perfect for encouraging a great sleep routine. He is still too little to spend much time playing in there, but it won't be long until the nursing chair migrates to Squish's room and we would love to get a little bookcase and beanbag to fill the space and give him a quiet corner.
