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 Cricket and well-renowned Swedish art duo, Mrs Mighetto on Instagram and were eager to have one particularly special paper in the design, but we didn’t think the product would be released in time. As it turned out, the beautiful ‘Land of Roses’ design was indeed available in time and we set to work with a design to compliment this dreamy wallpaper. The end result is calm and tranquil space that the new parents are enjoying with their precious baby girl.

Finding a paint colour to work with this beautiful wallpaper was a surprisingly easy task. Transparent Pink by Jotun not only worked a charm with the tone of the wallpaper, but it with the warm wood floors and furniture pieces too. And speaking of those wooden furniture pieces, we are big fans of the Nobodinoz cot and changing table, both cleverly designed to last well beyond the infant years  as the cot converts to a toddler bed and the three-drawer changing table becomes a stylish dresser. The ridiculously comfortable Pottery Barn glider is a dream for midnight feeds and the seagrass pouffe adds texture and natural tones to the colour scheme while offering for support as well. We found a super soft wool rug at Pottery Barn Kids that creates a perfect surface area for when the little one is on the move in a few months.

By far, one of the cutest things in the room is the Joseph Bunny, an adorable night lamp that perches perfectly on a table or shelf. We found this little cutie at Lidor, along with some other accessories that we used to style the shelves above the changing table. We tried something a little unconventional with the artwork in this nursery, selecting an abstract piece from our new favourite Esty printshop, Heartsincolors – definitely worth a look in this store! No newly decorated space is complete without greenery and this banana leaf plant was love at first sight, not to mention a star attraction in this light-drenched room.

Since completing this special space, it’s precious new resident has arrived safely and we’ve been coo-ing over pictures of the precious little bub. We hope that she and her parents are enjoying the nursery.

    • Who even knew a plywood cabinet could look so beautiful!? Or that there 2 IKEA besta frames hidden below those fronts, sides and top?? Its a @fronteriors magic trick! 🧙‍♂️🤭
    • Our second @fronteriors product shoot is happening in  two parts this week and we’re beyond excited to share this new batch of fronteriors products with you! You’ve all seen and loved the BILLY cabinet with cane doors, but now you get to meet his big brother – a wider, deeper and all round sexier cane cabinet made up of two BESTA frames supported on our custom metal leg frame. Two cane doors, two sides and one top complete the look of what is probably one of our personal favourite combinations. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks later on this this week.

    • Lazy Saturdays.... for some.
    • We've got double doggie trouble around here for a few days as Pep's sister, Jessie, is stay with us while her humans (also our humans) are in South Africa.
    • Waking up to music is a good way to start the day. Although Pepper's not still not sure what's happening in here when the beat drops... 😂 there's always a frantic little bark like someone's coming for her. Cray cray pup!

    • Around this time last year I was working on a secret makeover project for Kaitlyn's bedroom. She went to school with much resistance on the morning of her birthday and came home to a different room. The reaction was priceless! But seriously, where has a whole year gone?  #timeflies #kidspo
    • Loved seeing this room we designed last year featured over at @mintymagazine today. Despite it being a little over a year ago, it seems like a lifetime ago. Makes.you realise how much happens in a year and how quickly it goes.
    • That time we kitted all the @houseofhawkes smalls out in the cool new @piupiuchick collection from @martin_and_ella - I think it was one of the last mornings that you could be outdoors without actually melting, so I guess it was well timed. ☀️🔥🕶🤩
How many sleeps till school's out?? #summer2019 #hot #summer #itsgettinghotinhere #piupiuchick #houseofhawkesloves
    • Say hello to my new toy, the B&O M5 wireless speaker.  She’s busting out the tunes whilst ticking all the aesthetic and audio quality boxes, looking ever so pretty amidst this re-styled corner of my bedroom. She’s destined for our holiday home in South Africa this summer (we’ve been on the hunt for a good wireless speaker for some time), but in the meantime I’m really enjoying having music in our bedroom again. I think my last source of audio in the bedroom was a clock radio!! Er, who remembers those?

In other news, the hubster is at an event this evening and I’m about to pop my podcast cherry (true story!) and I’m looking for recommendations, please. I’m yet to download a single episode, if that’s even what we call them, but I’ve got the audio situation on fleek. Kids and neighbours may be listening in too! I’m a strong case for the term ‘all the gear and no idea’, so please indulge me with your suggestions with what’s good in the podcast arena. I want to get tonight’s party started.
