I don’t know about you but I always enjoy a good nosey around other people’s nurseries and home interiors so I thought I’d share Sophie’s room with you. If you are a blogger and have done a similar post, or you’ve shared some of your ideas on social media, leave a link to it in the comment box below. I love getting inspiration from other people and sharing gorgeous new finds!
With that said, welcome to Sophie’s nursery and lets get on with it.
Being the smallest room in the house I wanted a light colour for the walls but something seriously girly. As a rather girly girl myself, I somewhat unimaginatively plumped for pink. It’s a light, sugary pink from Crown paints called Fairy Dust. It’s such a pretty, delicate colour that reflects the light beautifully for such a small space.
I knew I wanted all of Sophie’s furniture to be white and the HENSVIG wardrobe from IKEA’s children’s range is perfect. It sort of chose me as I waddled round IKEA seven months pregnant because it reminded me of the one from Beauty and the Beast with its curved edges. Do you know the one I mean? Anyway, it’s not a full size wardrobe so it’s just right for her small room and at only £80 it is surprisingly good quality (which is obviously a much more sensible reason to choose a piece of furniture).
The thing I love about this wardrobe, aside from the Disney thing, is that the inside is just as cute as the outside. Not only is it cute but it’s really well designed with room to hang clothes (obvs!) and also three big shelves where I keep boxes of nappies and blankets/bedding. Later on when Sophie starts to walk, I will also use the bottom shelf for shoes.
Next up is the MALM IKEA chest of drawers in white. Four big spacious drawers for £49 – it’s a total bargain and I’ve bought them for every bedroom in my house. They really last and last – we have taken them apart and put them back together quite a few times when moving house and had no problems. I’m a big fan and you can use the IKEA drawer dividers to keep everything in its place, which the neat freak in me just loves.
I purchased Sophie’s cotbed and mattress in a Mothercare sale. It was the right colour, with space for storage underneath so I snapped it up for half price.
One of my favourite things in Sophie’s nursery are the little bunny wall stickers from Not on the High Street. They were £32 for the whole pack and I think they are just adorable dotted around her room. They are also the reason I plumped for a ‘bunny’ theme in the nursery, if there even is such a thing.
We have weird window sizes in our house and as a result we have to have all our blinds and curtains custom made. The roller blind is from an online company called Tuiss, in Lumiere Rasberry Crush and I love the pop of colour in an otherwise very pastel pink room.

I hope you have enjoyed having a nosey at the nursery. I’m still looking for some lovely art work for the walls so if you have any recommendations please let me know. I’d love it if you could leave a comment and tell me what you think, it always makes my day when people take the time to say hello. And of course it would be great if you can share with your friends on your social media accounts.
Ta-ta for now x
