Hugo’s Nursery

I’ve been waiting to show you this nursery!  I think it would have to be one of my all time favourite ones I’ve designed.  It’s classic, modern and perfect for a room that will grow as Hugo does.

When I first visited Hugo’s family, we talked about styles and it was pretty clear that Hugo’s mum was a fan of a classic Hamptons style.  As we were talking 2 things popped into my mind instantly (well 3)……the amazing wallpaper we ended up using and the stunning Nursery works Empire rocker chair (the third was….how the hell am I going to get that from the USA?).

I completed 2 design boards for the client.  1 had more traditional board & batten around the room and the other was the concept we ended up going for with a few adjustments (both below).Design Board a

The nursery was finished quite some time ago, but as I mentioned above, we had the Nurseryworks Empire Rocker imported from USA which took a while to get here.  So it was fabulous once it arrived and I was able to arrange photos of the nursery!

I’ve been….

doing a whole lot of neglecting this blog and a whole lot of baby growing!

Between chasing after 2 boys,getting clients design completed, running a business, running a home and generally feeling wiped out with this pregnancy…..there hasn’t been a lot of time for blogging!

Don’t worry though, I’ve got a few blog posts scheduled for the next week and a bit to try and make up for it because I have 1 week left before I take some maternity leave!

In the mean time….here’s an updated 2 week bump progress photo.  Only 5 weeks to go but unfortunately I missed out on the 32 week once as the whole family has been sick with chest infections (and the last thing I wanted to do was stand in front of the camera!).Fortnightly pregnancy photos

Watch out for tomorrows blog post…..I have one stunning nursery finished to show you!
