I've been featured!

Head over to La Toriana.....Elizabeth has done a lovely post about Nest today (thankyou so much Elizabeth!)!
I've written about La Toriana before and showed you a small selection of what they have but I'm dying to get my hands on the beautiful Tea Princess stuff (shown below).....I just need a baby girl in my life!
When I spoke about my miscarriage and the amazing women interviewed by Little One Baby who inspired me to write the post, well Elizabeth is one of those inspiring women (if you don't have your copy, go buy one and read the stories.....just get a box of tissues first!).

Orange Nursery

One of my BFF's is OBSESSED with orange.....this is her type of room!

Love the fabric in the drapes

And the chair! I seriously considered getting something like this for H's nursery, but just couldn't bring myself to spend that type of money (I'll be doing a post on chairs soon!)

What do you want to see?

I know, I blog posts have been a little sparse....sometimes life just get's in the way (I'm back doing a few day's work in a 'real' job, H's been sick, planning his 1st birthday, blah blah blah!)!
Anyway, next week I am going to dedicate a FULL day to writing & putting together some gorgeous nursery I want to know, what type of nursery do you love to look at? Any themes, any you really dislike? Let me know!

Featured on Design Dazzle!

Cool......Hugh's room is featured on Design Dazzle today!

Nursery Tour: Hugh's Room

On my very first post, I showed you some photos of Hugh's room. Well, they were just photos I took, so I thought I would share with you photos from Little One Baby Magazine!

Come over to the dark side

I'm LOVING dark walls at the moment (I have 2 in our house), soooo dramatic! Very versatile with accent and contrast colours.....I know it's not everyone's cup of tea though!
In a nursery, you do need to be careful to make sure you provide enough contrast and make it fun......I wouldn't go down this track if you don't get a lot of natural light in the room though.
Just take a look at these spectacular rooms!

sorry didn't note where I found this image

Don't you love it when your world aligns! Well I just popped over to Little Miss Heirlooms & they have a competition to win not 1, but 2 of the gorgeous Trafalgers Square prints (you know, the elephant print I'm using in one of my clients nurseries here)!

Quick....go & enter!

I found one!

Remember here where I showed you this gorgeous piece of art that would be perfect for a nursery? Well the other day, I stumbled a nursery design that in fact had used it in the design! How beautiful is it....what a gorgeous room!
