2012 is definitely the year for progress and new beginnings. With so many of my friends and family either getting married or expecting their first child it inspired me to look at tiny interiors. An even bigger inspiration has been the birth of my wonderful friend Vikki’s beautiful baby boy, and my adopted Nephew, Jacob, George, Sutton (and I get to meet him today – Eeeeeeek!). Gone are the days of pink for a girl and blue for a boy – it’s all about personality, COLOUR and style.
Whether you’re thinking of creating a calm oasis or a bright boudoir for your little’n you now have the freedom to think outside the box. Take the interiors above. This nursery is full of bright pops of summer colour paired with a retro 60s style interior. I love the use of wood in these interiors and how the interiors allow so much light to bounce around the room. A great rule to live by is if you can’t revamp an entire room, then change the scheme with great accessories. Below are a selection of my top six…
Using unexpected colours doesn’t have to be scary, just take a look at the scheme below. Grey has been used in this nursery scheme and by using the ‘right shade’ of grey, lots of light and enhancing pops of colour you can add a lot of creativeness to your little ones space. I like the way the ‘tree shelf’ has been designed onto the wall and into the scheme. It helps to add a playful yet functional element to your nursery.

I’ve found some great baby accessories that would fit in well with this space. The baby print below is a nice personal touch to the above scheme. You can’t get any better than a Jonathan Adler pottery accessory! This little lion is a great compliment and a cute touch. Likewise the JA candle is a nice way to add a sensory pop of yellow colour against the lush grey scheme. Not a great artist with the old paint brush? Don’t fret, use this style steal and add wall stickers to your nursery. There are loads out there in all different shapes and sizes. I really like this butterfly one though. Not only does it help to introduce a nice strong colour into the scheme, it also adds a whimsical touch.
Congratulations Vikki & Paul Sutton on your beautiful arrival
