Belle & Theo's Nursery

This is Miss Belle (18 months) & Master Theo (4 months) nursery, munchkins to Emma, a 20-something mum. Emma aspires to be a successful WAHM and blogs about her journey - The Wannabe Work At Home Mum. It is great when a nursery contains handmade sentimental pieces from family members and friends.

1. What was your inspiration for the rooms?
I wanted the children’s rooms to be a space of warmth, love and fun!

2. What is your favourite piece in the nursery?
It would be hard for me to pick just one piece, but I especially cherish the items that have been handmade: Paintings from my talented best friend; A cute doll from my sister; Gorgeous name displays from another dear friend; A beautiful blanket knitted by my mum... These are priceless gifts which fill the rooms with love.

3. Decorating a baby’s nursery can be quite challenging, what advice can you give for mums who want to decorate their nursery – where should they start? My best tip would be to get some open-box shelves. (You can pick them up cheap at Ikea) They are a simple foundation from which, it is easy to create the nursery that you dream of. I’ll try not to get too carried away, but the many benefits include:
  •  It is a great space-saver - A mass of rolled up baby wraps, blankets and linen will fit on one shelf.
  • If you need more storage, you can simply add another box.
  • Boxes are perfect for pint size things like baby singlets, hats, shoes and socks.
  • It is very easy to change the colour scheme or style of your nursery as your child grows... simply change what is on the shelves!
And most importantly, you can display all of bub’s childhood treasures... books, blocks, photos, toys, trinkets and teddies... and before you know it, you’ve created a space of warmth, love and fun!
