I didn't know if I was having a boy or a girl, so to start with I kept Greta's nursery neutral with shades of white and beige. I bought a polka dot bed spread and matching curtains and started adding bits and pieces only after she was born, for the exception of a yellow Liberty print fabric curtain which would have not been appropriate for a boy however much I tired to convince myself and others! Here are some photos of her bedroom as it is today, one whole year after she landed in my arms.
|A little overview when walking in through the door|
|Greta especially loves her bunny but most soft toys anyway!|
|I've been collecting cards of all sort with animals on them and then framing them as cool prints.|
She loves pointing at them!Especially at Walter the Whale
|These accessorize wings are such a sweet prop hanging above her bed|
|Her wardrobe was always going to be my obsession. I keep it super tidy|
and had a liberty print curtain made to close it off. The fabric is called
Claire-Aude and comes in lots of beautiful shades.
|I painted the baskets with Farrow and Ball colours and now use them|
to display and keep Greta's bedroom toys in
|I use the hooks above her toys to display my favourite outfits|
|I love her pin board with all sorts of memories like our wrist bands|
from the hospitals and fabric swatches from when I was doing up her room
|This rocking sheep is a recent buy from Zulilly|
|I use decorative paper to stick photos of us and the family around|
so she can point at us. We took this photo in Paris especially for her!
|This was an old chair from my house in Florence which I had upholstered|
in a coarse cotton stripe fabric from Designer Guild
|Classic Liberty print fabric is the them of Greta's room, I had this pillow made|
when she was born.

her little things like bows and photo frames

Vogue from September 2012 (the year she was born)
|I've been collecting sweet alice bands and hair accessories from ilovegorgeous.com for when she's older|
|One of my favourite photos of the two of us with London in the background.. if we ever move from|
he UK I will show it to her and say: "this is the country you were born in"
|The seagull hanging from the ceiling was mine, Greta loves to look at it|
while I change her nappy!
|Changing station and the wall I painted on a sleepless night when she was|
|One of the most beautiful gifts she received: liberty print alphabet letters|
spelling her name
|I got the felt stars from Little Nest Box at Notonthehighstreet|
|This was my gift to Greta when she was born from Modo Creative|
