I have been meaning to share pictures of the finished nursery for a while now. Then baby came along, and well time has just flown away.

This morning I did manage to finally snap a few images. A’s room is a lot more girly in contrast. Second time around I wanted to have something more neutral. I am currently obsessed with grey so this seemed like a logical start. I love the calming feel that Farrow and Ball’s Blackened creates. Combined with white and a little bit of taupe, baby’s new space is exactly how I envisaged it would be.

Finishing touches come from the divine animal prints by Little Blue Zebra, (It took me ages to source these. I loved the Animal Print Shop but for me prints were too expensive and sending from the US just wasn’t practical.) A Brissi nursing chair, Great Little Trading Company wall unit and Little White Rabbit’s doggy night light.

As far as furniture goes we went down a completely different route. With A we got an expensive nursery furniture set from Cosatto. This time I went for grown-up pieces with longevity in mind. My friend just happens to be in furniture restoration which made things super easy. (Check out LouisaGrace on Etsy.) Grey being the theme I choose a cute dresser and matching georgian-style wardrobe in Annie Sloane’s French Gray. The dresser is just the right height to double as a changing table.

The cot is just a cheapy from Ikea, but learning from experience there is no need to splash out on anything expensive. Cots only last a couple of years and cotbeds are un-necessary. You can just go straight onto a first single bed. (We got A a gorgeous vintage Victoria sleigh bed. It’s so cosey and the sleigh style means she can’t fall out.)

I am yet to find the perfect ceiling light but I am loving the hand printed shades by Lolly and Boo. They have a very similar star-print that may well match my aden + anais cot sheet and changing table cover…

So, what do you think?
