Eloise's Nursery

Thanks to Claire Miles for Frangipani Photography and Designs (you may remember her photos from a previous post) for sharing her lovely neighbour's nursery - Eloise, aged 1. Eloise's nursery is very shabby chic. My favourite idea is the ladder for hanging pieces in the room.

Inspiration for Eloise's Room: My mother gave Eloise a rabbit the day she was born. It had small pink & yellow flowers. My friend had a painting with a butterfly, a heart and Eloise's name done, also in pink & yellow.

Favourite nursery piece: Eloise's change table used to be my mother's sewing desk. It has dovetailed drawers and is really well made. I also love the "little house" woolen blanket that sits on the armchair or over the cot rail.

Decorating a baby's nursery can be quite challenging, what advice can you give other mums who want to decorate/redecorate their nursery - where should they start?
When decorating Eloise's room I chose a neutral colour scheme. It's very easy to change the look of a room with accessories when you don't have to repaint. Some colours also stimulate babies so I think it's important to think about colour choice, overstimulation can make it hard for babies to settle, not something you should aim for when setting up your child's bedroom ;)
