The pitter patter of tiny feet…

Happy New Year to all you lovely people. I hope you and yours had a wonderful festive period and that 2016 will be filled with loads of good stuff for us all. I am personally not-so-secretly delighted…

In a little over three months I will be welcoming baby number 3 into the world. It’s a boy this time. I am filled with a mixture of excitement and apprehension at the unknown quantity that is a small boy-child. I have two gorgeous daughters so all things girl-related I am highly versed in, but a boy…? It’s going to be a whole new adventure and one I am sure I will find incredible if at times nerve wracking.

So with the joys of a mostly wet and grey January ahead of me, I have started to turn my head to something not remotely drab and dreary… the design of the nursery. My wish-list is currently: bold, kitsch, quirky, bright, snug, surprising and as eclectic as possible to incorporate things we already have in our home. I am drawn to the colour yellow at the moment, but a 1950s yellow a la extraordinarily talented Lucienne Day or modern-day MissPrint, whose Dandelion Mobile fabric I just adore.

I am sure the design and scheme will morph organically over the coming months, but for the moment, here are some visuals that are inspiring me. Hope you enjoy.

Loving the colours used here and the kitsch prints are inspired. (
Perhaps not pink for a boy’s room, but the different scale of items works really well and I love the shelves/letters. (
This mustard yellow pouf is spot on and I love the suspended lamp too. (

  1. I love this one! Good luck with boy nurturing.. They are easy! People in this culture often find it easier to let colour into a child’s room than their own room! This is colour and quirkiness let out without inhibition… Which needs addressing! Wonderful!
