Wallpaper Wonder Nursery Reveal

12/11/2018

Last month we had the privilege of designing a nursery for the sweetest mum-to-be. Her vision was simple – nothing too over the top, a dash of dusty pink and something special for the walls. Other than that, she pretty much left it up to us. We had seen a few sneak peeks of the wallpaper collaboration project between Jimmy…

My lovelies, I’m finally getting around to sharing this bright and airy open living space with you. This living area of a Palm Jumeirah townhouse was actually something that we finished up a while ago, but somehow my very busy summer got in the way of getting it up on the blog. Nonetheless, we are back in Dubai, routines are…
