Having always been a girly girl I was so excited when I found out I was having a girl. I instantly began planning her room and buying her outfits. I wanted her nursery to be a really pretty, girly room with a shabby chic french feel to it. I wanted it to be light, bright and whimsical with pretty accessories. Somewhere both she and I would enjoy relaxing and playing together.
For her nursery I chose a colour scheme of white and pink with accents of gold. I chose French style White furniture from Boori. I wanted the cot to be a real center piece and I love the grand princess feel it adds to her room. Her cot is the Boori royal sleigh cot bed with under bed storage, at £899 it is one of the more expensive options but I fell in love with it and it came with a five-year warranty and is amazing quality. I’m hoping that investing in a more expensive cot will mean it can be used for her future siblings. Slightly cheaper but similar options are the ‘Martha sleigh cotbed’ from John Lewis at £300 and the Silver cross nostalgia bed at £500.
I love the gold letter B above her bed which I got for £38 from Posh graffiti, it is something she will hopefully have in her room for years to come. You can get great quality letters from Posh graffitii in a variety of size’s and colours and they really give the room a sense of identity making it unique to your child. You can display your child’s initials or using smaller letters you could spell out their full name or meaningful words.
A focal point of her room is the box shelves above her changing table. To accessorise her shelves I stocked up on my childhood favourite books from Beatrix potter and pretty hardbacks such as Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland. These not only look great but mean you have great stories to read to your little one. I love the bunny light on her shelves from The White Company, it’s perfect for late night and nappy changes as it gives of a soft glow. As she grows up it will be great as a bedside nightlight. At the moment The White Company have a gorgeous castle shaped light, a pirate ship, plane or elephant, ranging from £59- £75 they would all provide a similar effect.
