Everyday Life The Nursery

I am so happy to be finally sharing the finished look of Antek’s room with you. It took us quite a while to have it decorated, but I think it was worth the wait.

As soon as I found out I was pregnant I created a board on Pinterest with baby ideas and nursery inspiration images. Perusing through hundreds of photos I noticed I was drawn to simple decors, muted tones and lots of personal touches added to baby’s room. We decided to paint the walls slated grey/blue and add white furniture. The room gets a lot of natural sunlight during a day so it’s lovely and bright.

We didn’t go for a specific theme for the nursery – instead, we chose pieces that meant something for us as parents. We also received many gifts for Antek, so it’s lovely to see them scattered around the room, reminding us of all our supportive friends and family. And we personalised this gorgeous blue cushion with Tiny Prints – I love how the colours match the decor.

A funny fact – that boy-doll has been with me since I was a little girl. Guess what I had called him? Yes, Antek! It looks like this particular name has always been unknowingly close to my heart.
