Woodland nursery
Andrea Bellamy |

With the baby due in under three months, it’s time to start thinking about where it’s going to live. (Actually, we know the future location of its habitat: our former TV room, or “media centre” as Ben liked to call it, but what said room is going to look like is completely open for discussion.)


I’m really grooving on  Amenity Nursery’s – Woods organic crib bedding. I love the gender-neutral palette, and of course, the nature-inspired print. Drool. Could this be the inspiration for the nursery’s theme? What better for a gardener and nature lover? (Photo from Design Public.)


Fabrics from the Aviary line of Joel Dewberry fabrics (via PurlSoho) would make great curtains and accent pillows.

I also love this tree, hand-cut from vintage wallpaper, from Enfant Terrible. I think I may have to copy this, especially the little birdhouse light.

We are thinking of the above palette, with a greenish yellow called “Lemon Grass” as the main colour, “Cromwell Gray” for a feature wall and “Simply White” for the ceiling and trim (all from Benjamin Moore). Orange accents would punch it up a lot.  

Further inspiration for a woodland nursery from Decor8’s mood board contest, and of course, from the marvelous Etsy:
