Nursery Inspiration

February 5, 2015 | Baby, Inspired by..., Personal

Last year, when we found out we were going to be having a baby, we were super excited (as many people are, I think) at the prospect of decorating a nursery for our little boy.

We decided that we’d convert our guest room into the new nursery, which is the smallest (tiny!) room in the apartment. Because we’re in a rental, we were pretty limited with what we could change, so unfortunately the walls couldn’t be painted, and the ugly beige curtains had to stay. But we tried to make the most of it!

Before I show you what we ended up with, I thought I’d share some of my inspiration.. we really wanted earthy blues and greens, lots of neutral, and a touch of mid-century mod. I also didn’t really want it to look overly “baby”.

Pinterest was my best friend while I was looking around for inspiration (of course!)… here’s some of what grabbed my eye:

So with all that in mind, I went on the hunt for the perfect furniture and accessories – or at least, something close to what I’d seen online. A few of the items I put together below aren’t what we ended up with (as they weren’t available here in Singapore), but were a good starting point for style. We’d also been generously gifted a few items – the Eames Elephant, the Stokke Sleepi cot, and loads of beautiful books – so we went from there :)
