When we finally moved into our house I was so happy that Ruby was going to get her own room and excited to decorate this for her.
I had decided on a white, gold and dusty pink scheme.
She had spent her ‘ baby time’ in our room in cot until age 16 months (when we moved into the house) – we had little choice in the matter as previously we lived in a one bed flat! So getting her own room was a big deal and has led to better night’s sleep for all of us.
First things first, the cot. I bought the Hoxton cot and toddler bed in I’ve been advised by those in the know, not to scrimp on baby furniture and to ensure that it reaches certain standards. Plain white was what I was after and although the Hoxton took a while to get delivered (6 weeks)- we ordered it from Mamas & Papas in Dundrum- it was worth the wait. This cot also converts into a toddler bed so it will grow with her and last a few more years.
I sometimes add a faux white throw to the cot for pictures like this but this is mostly for our room! It’s Julian McDonald at Debenhams.
Then there was this pink canopy. I wanted a space for Ruby to play and read and I can safely say that this space has brought the most fun and joy into our daily lives, as every evening we huddle there for a bed time story. She loves playing in it and plays hide and seek behind the canopy. I ordered it on eBay.
Not pictured – a faux fur dusty pink throw, also from Primark which is the ‘floor’ under the canopy and adds a lovely cuddly luxe feel to the reading corner.
The cushions are (from L to R) West Elm white Mongolian fur cushion,two Primark Pink velvet cushions, a Primark gold heart cushion and two Primark white and gold cushions.
Next was the lamp shade. I’d seen this one on Made.com and decided it was so perfect that I got it for our hallway also– it’s a white clay shade with a copper interior.
The carpet is a grey/mink colour and the built-in wardrobes already were in the room and are a light grey colour. It’s a box room so it’s not huge but I am delighted with the overall result.
Have a great week.
