Harper has just moved into her own room so I thought now is probably the best time to show you some of her nursery! It’s not 100% finished and will probably be a constant work-in-progress as she grows, but whilst it’s still ‘new’, here are the close ups!
My style inspiration for the nursery was to keep it minimalistic as it’s not a big room and I don’t like clutter. For colours, I wanted to keep it gender neutral as you never know what the future will hold! We live in a new build and only moved in a year ago so had a blank canvas to work with; the carpet is grey and walls white. My vision for finishing touches was cute animals, particularly elephants! Check out my Nursery board on Pinterest to see my inspiration!
I started with the wallpaper as I worked on a buying team for Wallpaper before maternity leave and loved the cute star print on this one. The neutral base makes it a subtle alternative to white walls.
We bought the animal prints from Etsy whilst I was pregnant and I couldn’t wait to hang them up. I kept seeing them on Pinterest and were a nursery must-have! Harper loves the lion cub the most and just stares at it!
Soft toys garlore! Harper has quite the collection already. I remember buying the huge elephant whilst pregnant and thinking the baby will absolutely love it as it’s so big!
Music and Sound
This cute cot mobile ties in with the subtle colours and animal theme. Harper loves the music that comes from this mobile and always smiles when I wind it up – so cute!
This wicker basket is so handy for putting all of Harper’s essentials like body lotions and thermometer in one place! The Gro Egg thermometer is one of the most useful things in Harper’s room which I mentioned in my baby essentials post. It also doubles as another night light!
Harper’s furniture is a soft white colour rather than ‘bright white’, and are cute child-friendly sizes! So far, she has 3 pieces of furniture; a sleigh cot bed from PreciousLittleOne and wardrobe and chest of drawers from Argos. We bought them as separate pieces as it is more cost-effective however buying a complete set would ensure they all match and probably be easier!
A family friend made this really cute bunting spelling out ‘Harper Rose’ on pretty patchwork fabric!
My Godmother got Harper this cute little sign to hang on her door.
To finish her room, we just need some shelving for all her books, a toy box/toy storage and more prints and artwork!
