As promised there, I will share the evolution of my “nursery project” with you on the blog. Today I want to show you a little mood board I created in order to illustrate the overall look I want to give to the room and decide on the main colours in want to use in the decoration of the nursery.
As you can see the two main colours are blue and grey/silver.
1. Pompoms to add some lightness and fluffiness to the decoration
2. Print Everyone’s friend from seventy tree – looks perfect for a future multilingual child
3.Wall hooks in different shades of blue
4. A unicorn – this one has already moved in…
5. A lovely star carpet.
6- The Egmont bunny lamp – In fact I have had this lamp for ages in my living room. Now, it lives where it belongs: in the nursery!
7. Lovely fabric:

8- soft toy – dog – in Japanese Zakka style
1. Why blue?
I decided to pick blue as the main colour, even if I am expecting a baby girl. The baby’s bedroom is going to be set in our former bedroom in which we painted one of the walls in midnight blue last year. I still love this colour so much and find it so peaceful, that I decided not to change it and build the decoration around it. To make it a little more girly, I am adding some flowery Liberty fabric.
I am a big fan of british stylist, shop owner and book author Abigael Ahern and her choices of dark colours in decoration, and decided to apply that to the nursery.
I also decided to mix different shades of blue.
2. Why grey/silver?
First of all, grey is my favorite colour in decoration. I painted the main wall in my living room in grey and I really love it. Grey/silver is more going to be used as accents in the nursery, as a contrasting colour to blue and in fabric. We will leave the other walls in the nursery plain white. For me silver as something magical in it and I hope it will inspire my little princess.
So! I hope you got inspired. I think we are also going to add some neon yellow to the room.
It’s all for today. I will be back tomorrow on the blog with a great flower project – so stay tuned.
