Good morning everyone,
As promised several times, today is the day of the big reveal: I will show you the finished baby nursery. Maybe baby love will want to visit it soon!
So here is what I did with this room after I decided on the colour scheme and did a virtual moodboard and collected some inspiration on Pinterest.
I will start with the main pieces of furniture and show you the little details:
Little black sheep by Jellycat
The grey bed is from the French brand Combelle – I bought it on the French website Smallable, along with a lovely grey changing table and I am very much in love.
I picked a grey bed with a lot of cushions and made a padded cot bumper in different shades of blue and grey. The mobile adds some purple to make it a bit more girly, and some animals to make it more fun. Stars as a pattern can be found in the shape of the blue cushion, on the mobile and on the ribbons.
For the first months, baby love will sleep in a French antique crib my parents brought me in July, where my sister used to sleep as a baby 28 years ago.
I found this antique wardrobe in the lovely shop Lieblingszimmer in Hamburg (which by the way just opened an online shop) – and instantly fell in love. I like the fact that the vitrine has also got glass on the side. We didn’t want to buy something too babyish and I am not sure that this will stay for ever in baby love’s bedroom. I could image it very well later in a dining room for presenting pretty plates and glasses. For the time being, I love the fact that I can enjoy the beautiful clothes my mum made for baby love.
2. On the walls
The print is by UK illustrator Kerry Layton from her beautiful brand Seventy tree.
The pompoms come from the German website Pompom your life. They are hand-made and they have a great selection of colours to choose from on the website.
I made the pennant banner myself. It’s a great way to use little pieces of fabric. I used some Liberty of London art fabric, some Japanese fabric, some fabric by Swedish design Lotta Jansdotter and some French fabric from petit pan. I made a big one that hangs above the bed as well as a mini-version. A tutorial is coming soon on the blog.
I also made the embroidery hoops with Liberty of London of fabric that I showed you previously on the blog. They now hang above the changing table.
I wanted to put some contrasting elements on the night blue painted wall. I decided to go for a wall sticker in silver – I have been a big fan of Shanna Murray and was so happy to finally have a good excuse for ordering one of her stickers.
The unicorn head is from the German shop Butlers.

A big thank you to Jocelyn from the gorgeous blog little room of style for her wonderful photos and to my little assistant Cheddar:
So I hope you liked my little nursery tour. I am looking forward to your feedback. I hope it doesn’t look too much like a little boy’s nursery with the choice of colours.
