As soon as I started Rooomy one of the first people I contacted was Lynsey, she was the ideal example of a mum who is not an interior designer, but has a really strong sense of her own style and wanted to create a fantastic space for her baby boy.
Lynsey is one super organised woman (this is a lady who has towels for every occasion), so I knew her nursery was going to be styled to perfection and it was. Her son, Harrison, was born April 2014 and his room was completely finished ready for his arrival. Now, I don’t know many parents who had the nursery finished in time for their baby’s arrival, I certainly didn’t, but if anyone was going to be ready it was Lynsey!
Lynsey and Sam found out the sex of their baby four months before he was due and plans were instantly underway.
She decided quickly on baby blue and white for the colours. One feature wall would be blue with a pale grey carpet.
Kate Middleton was a huge help :o)
Having seen pictures of Kate Middleton/Duchess of Cambridge out shopping in Blue Almond when she was expecting Prince George (Lynsey is laughing as she tells me this, virtual NCT buddy royalty!), Lynsey looked on their site and saw the wonderful hot air-balloon lampshade, it really is one of the cutest lampshades I have ever seen, what do you think?
They decided to take the trip up to London to see the Blue Almond store in person and Lynsey spotted the blue bunting, this bunting went onto inspire the check theme and they also had a changing mat to match. So often it’s an unplanned purchase which ends up setting the tone and taking the room to an unexpected new level. And it was whilst out shopping for curtains in Paul Simon for another room, that they spotted the blue curtains with the same little check detail on, so that was an easy purchase and another item to check off the nursery to-do list.
The chair was spotted in the Ikea catalogue and as we all know, if you visit Ikea you never come away with just the item/s you went in for. Marketplace, anyone? So out they came with the chair plus the lamp and photo frames. Which actually isn’t bad going if you ask me.
To round this cute little nursery off here’s a video for you to enjoy. Harrison was very happy in here, he’s now 3 years old and in his big boy’s room, which will feature here soon, along with his baby sister’s nursery which I cannot wait to see! It is going to be all things unashamedly pink and gorgeous I’m guessing.
Thank you, Lynsey and Sam for letting me share this, I really look forward to seeing the kids’ rooms in the new place soon.
