O.k so the theme board is finally done now it is a matter of sourcing / making and getting all the ideas to go together to become a reality . The ideas are as the enclosed mood board :
shelving : some kind of shelving love the decorative shelving with the grey paneling background and the neutral wood shelves perfect to display all the bits and pieces .
tee pee - essential for the nursery as they begin to crawl and discover love the idea of a neutral tee-pee that can then be changed with adding accessories etc .
ply or cardboard deer head - great piece for nursery and also something that can be carried through the ages as it changes from a nursery to a little persons room .
crotchet toy - beautiful hand-knitted crotchet toy - a great quality piece .
cane baskets - great for storage and will again grow with the baby great neutral storage option .
hanging stick mobile - Loved the image of the hanging branch with birds would like to recreate something like this to make a peaceful sleeping space .
this as you can see is very different from the last very retro / vintage inspired nursery i created fingers crossed it will evolve - Ollie needs his own space ... I will keep you updated with photos as we go .

Happy New Year . Although the New Year got off to a shaky start with me being admitted to hospital - It all ended well on the 6th of January when a healthy 10.5 pound boy was delivered in to our world. Oliver Robert as you can see from the photos is perfect . I was extremely unorganised finishing the week before Christmas and then going into hospital straight after so now the crazy nesting ideas begin for the nursery and a welcome place for Oliver to call his room . Will post back later with some ideas. ..Let the fun and post nesting begin ...
