Design Board: Olive’s Whimsical Nursery

This is a design board I recently completed for gorgeous little Olive.  The brief was to incorporate a few items that had been made for Olive which used Red, Pink & Green but not be to over the top girly!Olives Nursery for blog

My favourite thing on the board are the gorgeous Deer bookends.  So very cute!


Don’t forget, if you would like a gorgeous room created for your little one, please contact me!

Nursery Tour: Caroline’s sweet space

Now I’m not normally a ruffles and frills girl, but I do love this adorable nursery…in particular the gorgeous skirt on the cot.  Meagan designed this room for her daughter Caroline and it is just lovely!WEB_IMG_7478_Edit1


You can see more details and photos on Meagan's blog, Meagan Musing.

Nursery Tour: Gender neutral delight

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…..neutral does not have to equal boring beige!  Nancy designed this nursery for her niece or nephew (found over at Project Nursery) and I think she’s done such a lovely job of creating a bright and fun filled room.  I love the closet!



Nancy made the ‘ABC’ cupboard herself!  A list of sources can be found here.

Room Tour: Big boy blue

I love these 2 bedrooms Jen from iheartorganising created for her 3 boys!  Love the license plate artwork in bedroom 1 & love the stripes and subtle colouring in bedroom 2.

You can see more of Jens home here.


PS Sorry, post is short…have managed to burn 3 of my fingers cooking tea tonight….making it a little difficult to type!

Incredibly good looking

No, not me… #2 baby!  If you haven’t already gone and got yourself a copy of the latest Little One Baby mag, go and get one! 

Chock full of delightful nurseries and all sorts of goodies, however this edition is KIND OF SPECIAL.  You might notice a handsome little boy on pages 128 & 131!  Yep, Charles can also turn left on the catwalk (Zoolander for those of you who are wondering what on earth I’m talking about) and has dabbled in a spot of modelling just like his big bro.IMG_2270IMG_2271

Awwww, look at those cheeks!

Design Board: Baby Elephant Walk

After seeing the nursery I designed for my nephew, Katrina got in touch and we set about designing a gender neutral nursery for her. 

design board for blog

The colour scheme consists of grey, lemon, pale green, pale orange and baby blue with an option of adding coral for a baby girl.  The existing wall colour was already lovely, so I suggested adding in white stripes to a feature wall.  However the real ‘hero’ piece is the Lion Walk print by Sarah Jane Studio in their largest size.  I also suggested a cosy little reading nook (my fav thing to include in a child's room!).

Katrina and her husband recently welcomed a baby girl to their family, so will be using the coral colour option!

I can’t wait to see photos!

Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat where have you been?


Have you missed me?  Probably not!  There has been quite the hiatus here at Nest, hasn’t there?  If you are a Facebook fan of Nest, you will know that I have had some fun the last 2 months!  First we were all sick, over a period of 4 weeks.  Chest infections, conjunctivitis, sinus, anti-biotics and a trip to the emergency department with Charlie!  Then my computer up and died.  It was dead most of October, at doctors twice to see if they could get it functioning enough to allow me to do the basics on it.  I was terrified I had lost everything and I hadn’t done a backup!  It’s all saved now though!  AND THEN, Charlie managed to kick my laptop of the couch and it well and truly died.  Luckily my new computer had arrived that morning and after a few days, my new laptop is fully functioning, I’ve got all my programs installed (after more issues….a great big sarcastic thankyou to Adobe by the way) and I’ve been slowly making my way through emails etc. etc. etc. to catch up.  I’m finally underway and will have blog posts for you this week…very very old blog posts, but they will be there none the less!

In exciting news, Nest has a new logo (again, if you are a Facebook follower you have already seen it!) designed by the lovely Bec at Ruby Ruby Designs.  The blog will get a make over asap to incorporate it.


I also became an Aunty!  My gorgeous nephew, Cooper was born early November and his nursery, which you saw here, has now been filled!

And because every blog post needs a picture, here’s one of my babies!


I’ll be back soon for more nursery tours!
