Neutral, Nautral, and Striped: Featured Nursery

Looks like last week’s trend spotting post about tree branches in the nursery really caused a splash! And I was thrilled to receive an email from Kelle, the mama behind one of the featured nurseries in the post. Kelle sent over more images of her nursery and a few words about her design ideas and inspiration, and we’re happy to be able to share them with you today.

Description: A Coastal Nest
Child’s Name: Xavier
Child’s Age: 5 months
Location: Gold Coast, Australia

What was your inspiration for the room?
I wanted a space that felt fresh, clean and modern with blue and yellow accents. I spent months collecting the perfect pieces to add to the room – I didn’t want anything in there that I didn’t truly love.

Describe your decorating style.
Our home is a modern coastal style, with Asian influences.

Favorite items in the room?
I fell in love with the “I Love You More” print — I think it sums up the feelings of any parent about their child! I carried the butterfly theme from the mobile hanging above the crib to the wall around the print using decals, which show up so well against the striped wall. My other favorite is the driftwood hanging wardrobe I made – it’s such a simple but effective DIY idea to display your favorite baby clothes.

Any design advice for mamas designing their nursery?
(1) Think outside the box! Don’t just search baby stores for items to create your nursery – and homewares/interior stores are full of great ideas to furnish your room.
(2) The internet is your best friend for shopping and idea sourcing — particularly as your pregnancy progresses and it’s harder to get around!
(3) If you need help – ask for it! I had so much fun decorating the space for Xavier. My interior design company Habitat & Beyond now offers eDesign and Nursery moodboards so I can continue creating beautiful spaces for parents and their little treasures!
