Baby love’s little nursery

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.

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.

  2. Liebe Elodie, so schön und liebevoll eingerichtet! Wo hast Du denn die kleine lila Eule entdeckt? Die würde mir auch gut gefallen 😀 Viele Grüße!

    1. Hallo Sandra,
      Danke! die kleine lila Eule ist von OMM Design von der Schwedischen Designerin Ingela Peterson Arrhenius. Die habe Ich bei LIV in Hamburg gekauft.

    1. My dear Igor,
      thank you so much! this is a great colour scheme, not only for babies. It used to be our bedroom and we decided not to change the colour of the wall and to build the decoration around it.

  3. I love everything about this nursery from the hand made clothing to the hand sewn crib bumper. Oh, and the unicorn! Your vision and creativity shine as always, you are truly a remarkable woman and I am honored to call you my friend. Thank you. Jocelyn xx

    1. Thanks so much Jocelyn for your kind words and for your beautiful photographs. I really enjoyed our little photo-shooting. See you very soon

  4. Oh liebe Elodie, es ist so schön bei der kleinen Madame Love! Sie wird es lieben und ich finde es wundervoll, dass nicht alles Rosa ist, das kommt noch früh genug 😉
    Genießt Eure erste Zeit und ich hoffe die Dame kommt pünktlich, damit sie das alles ganz bald genießen kann!
    Liebe Grüße

  5. mein hormonhaushalt gerät direkt ins wanken und ich möchte mir sofort den maddin schnappen und… :-).. das zimmer ist wunder wunder schön geworden. die dunkelblaue wand ist mein lieblingsdetail. mit dem einhorn und dem sticker… ein traum. ich kann es kaum erwarten die kleine miss kennen zu lernen. xoxoxoxo

    1. Meine liebe Lou!
      Ich bin sicher dein Kinderzimmer wird auch ganz toll sein! Es freut mich dass es dir gefällt. Du muss mich schnell in Hamburg besuchen nach der Geburt.
      Liebste Grüße

  6. You know what I love most about it (except everything?)? It’s a nursery, no doubt and a sweet and one, too – but it’s also a room where you, as an adult, can feel at ease. No overstuffed pink-ish room with loads of “cute” rubbish in it. It’s calm and friendly and welcoming – it’s basically perfect and I’m very much in love with it. I’m sure Baby Love will enjoy her room just as much. Keeping my fingers crossed that she’s being a good girl now in the final bit of the pregancy, and that you have a smooth start into family life. <3

    1. Thank you Katharina,
      I am glad you like it. I think as well that dark colours can be very calming in a bedroom. I hope as well that everything is going to run smoothly in next few days…
