We love that your designs are playful and fun rather than following the neutral trends! What is the philosophy behind integrating colour into this nursery design?
Although I love some characteristics of that Scandi-Minimalism style that’s so popular at the moment, I am definitely a colour person - I love the way it can make you feel and respond to a space. When it comes to children’s rooms, to me colour is so important - it brings life and playfulness and can be the difference between a ho hum and a HUMMING space.
What piece in this nursery did you think was important to invest in the most?
When looking at an interior budget I always advise my clients to identify items to invest in and those items to save on. Sometimes you have to have the salad to afford the champagne, right? In this space, I wanted to create a calming, minimal vibe with pops of colour and texture to bring in those playful notes. The artwork was my starting point - the biggest pop of colour in the space and a means of setting the tone for the rest of the room. The Ferm Living wallpaper was a big investment but to me really finishes the space, makes the artwork sing and sets that beautiful minimal calming tone perfect for a nursery. I also invested in a good quality chest of drawers by Retrojan to last Wilbur through the years. To balance out my investments, I saved on the Target cot which was the perfect timber material and delivered on those minimal, scandi and semi-retro vibes.
