James’s nursery

I am thrilled to finally show you James’s nursery!

From the moment I knew that this room  was going to be our second baby boy’s bedroom I had all sorts of ideas swirling around in my head. A Pinterest board was set up and I spent ages researching lighting and furniture stores. But the main point of focus (thankfully I had one) was a neutral vibe with a mid-century modern flair. And thanks to Huga Studio we have achieved exactly that!

I walked into Huga Studio a few weeks after it opened and immediately fell in love with their furniture, lighting and accessories and the overall attitude towards home design. Mostly vintage, original and totally in tune with the style I was hoping to achieve in James’s nursery. Aline, owner and interior designer, was excited about the project I had in mind so she agreed to help me and voila!

I wanted to stick to a neutral background and allow the furniture and accessories to do the talking. That’s why I avoided loud and crowded wallpaper and kept the walls off-white adding thick teal-coloured curtains and lots of wood elements. The perfect canvas to create upon.

I changed my mind a ridiculous amount of times about where to put the gallery wall which is made up mostly of Georgie’s paintings and drawings. I had two walls to choose from. In the end I chose to place the mix and match of prints and frames over the custom-made sideboard, a gift for James from his godmother and I think it gives such a unique character to the room. I liked the idea of adding shelves to the opposite wall. But after failing to find any that I loved, I decided to go with these IKEA book ledges. They’re a bit narrow but they look absolutely fantastic decorated with special bits and bobs I have collected over the years for my babies like a vintage Wizard of Oz poster, a Woody doll from Toy Story and then there’s a picture Georgie and his cousins had framed for James, which I love.

So there it is! I still can’t believe this little room that was once the ‘spare room’, a land of boxes and general stuff, has finally been transformed into a beautiful living space for this baby boy of mine. I love how this space can easily be adapted as James grows… especially as he will probably be sharing it at some point. Ha! Now that’ll be an interesting project.


A big thank you to Huga Studio for sponsoring this project
