Buba’s nursery wasn’t much different when he was a baby, minus the bright green wall. I kept it cool and neutral with the navy stripes and the rest was white, even the furniture. So I decided while I was doing Missy Moo’s nursery, I would add this green to give it a more grown up boy look to it, even though he still is my baby!
The gorgeous bunting was made from extra curtain material from his nursery curtains. My clever and talented mother made them for his room. I love the navy against the green. His baby bedding was all sailboats so the theme is still semi there. Don’t want him growing up too fast.
I got all Buba’s furniture from Ikea. It’s good price and quality. His cot bed turns into a mini single bed, that I have yet to take the sides down. I know, I know it is time but we are potty training and Buba doesn’t do well with change, one thing at a time.
The wallpaper on the far wall is Ralph Lauren from John Lewis that Mr. P. won from a golf tournament. I never thought his golfing days would benefit me! lol
Buba’s cloud bedding just came last week from Modern Baby, in anticipation of his new big boy bed. He is loving, having a pillow and big boy blanket now but he still asks for his sleeping bag too. So he has them both, bless him. I thought the grey would go great with the navy and green.
Let’s not forget his new favorite corby tinderstick either. It’s a cute plush toy I got him from Modern Baby as well. He loves to snuggle it while he sleeps.
The roman blinds are fabric from Laura Ashley, we used to get a family discount, which I miss. My talented mother again made these gorgeous navy curtains. Buba’s window is a nightmare to dress. It’s three separate windows in a bay window shape, all three a different size. I was really pleased with the outcome as these, they completely block out the light, the roman blinds left the room just as bright as it does open.
I have a mini obsession with light fixtures. If I could change them in each room, monthly, I would. I am always seeing another one in shop and wanting to buy it. I need more rooms to light. This white one is from Laura Ashley. It was perfect for a nursery but now I want to upgrade it to a big boy light. I just haven’t found the right one. Then I think it might find a home in Missy Moo’s room.Buba’s bay window was great for a nursery as his rocking chair and side table were there. Now, it acts as his reading nook slash craft play area. My mother and I both made these matching pillows out of extra fabric from the curtains and extra sheet from his bed to match the green wall. It was one of my first sewing lessons from her.
I love this table too because we can bring it downstairs, to the dining room when Buba has friends over for lunch! They both can sit together at their own mini table. I can’t wait till Missy Moo is old enough and the two of them can eat together on it. Good thing it matches the dining room decor!!!
I already have ideas for this space when it does move downstairs permanently. I have my eye on a Ferm Living tent from Modern Baby or a similar reading tent.
I absolutely love these shelves, they are spice racks from Ikea. I painted them navy and green to tie in with the rest of the room. The dark colors really pop off the white wall. They turned out better than I thought and at £3 each, you can’t beat that. They are very sturdy too, they withstand Buba pulling books from them daily. I also painted wooden letters that spell his name out on the other side, to match.
We hadn’t long moved into our new house when Buba was born. I think we got our keys exactly four weeks before I gave birth. NOT recommend! It has taken me two and half years to decorate each room how I want, and as I slowly finish off each room, I will be sharing my decorating with all of you.
I hope you have enjoyed Buba’s room tour!
