The nursery is the smallest room in the house but also the brightest, hence the net curtains and the sweetheart blue blackout blinds. I love all the hints of baby blue in the room, I think it goes so well with the white furniture and of course it's perfect for our baby boy.
All the bedding in Beau's cot, apart from the sheet, is handmade and the patchwork quilt depicting some of Beatrix Potter's loveable characters in the real showpiece, I love all the different fabrics used in it and I requested for it to me custom made in a baby blue colour palette. The comforter hanging on the side of the cot was made by the same lovely lady too. The patchwork cushion showing Peter Rabbit was a bargain purchase from a lovely girl I follow on Instagram and was a total bargain at just £5. The sweet dreams wooden letter garland was also a bargain at just €5 and I think it's perfect for hanging above a cot.
There are a few Peter Rabbit plushes and comforters in Beau's nursery, some I've popped in a white wicker basket that I picked up in Penneys. A musical Peter Rabbit hangs on the side of his cot and I've also attached a Peter Rabbit buggy toy to the cot too. He's also inherited Tyler Lee's stacking blocks and soft ball and I'm sure he'll have more Peter Rabbit themed toys soon as that's what I plan on getting him for his first Christmas. I've also put the Beatrix Potter collection of books on his chest of drawers and my aunt gave him the Beatrix Potter ten book set as a gift when he was born.
The cubed units are from Argos and are perfect for storing all his skincare and changing things. I also have some blankets and muslins rolled up in there as well as some little board and cloth books.
I was unsure about whether or not to keep the old chair in the nursery and I've just covered the floral fabric with a cotton ball type blanket. I now sit on the chair when Beau is in his cot and it's lovely to be able to sit next to him.
The Beatrix Potter mobile is a vintage find that I found on Ebay. I think it's from the 1980's and it plays Brahm's lullaby, that quintessential getting babies to sleep song. Another vintage item in the room is the Peter Rabbit playsuit which hangs on a wooden Peter Rabbit hanger on the wall. It's aged 6-9 so it won't be long before Beau is able to wear it but I think it's lovely on display.
I've been putting fresh flowers in Beau's nursery since before he was born, I think it may be because he's a summer baby but I just love having some fresh flowers in bloom on his cubed unit.
I really do love the nursery, it's exactly how I wanted it to be - bright, uncluttered and childlike. I've seen so many nurseries over the past year that are super stylish but lacking the childlike quality that I think a baby's room needs so I definitely wanted something classic and age appropriate in the nursery and I think I achieved that.
