What to do with blue?

This is the first time that I've had a whole room to dedicate to the nursery, so I wanted it to be gentle, soft and fit for a babe. It's the first time that I've done a children's room without using pink and red, so I also wanted it to be blue, green and very boy. But trains, planes and racing cars just didn't seem right for a boy of ours. So I found some inspiration from this special toy Combi van that Tim was given many years ago, from his Dad. It now sits on the shelf with some Combi friends, some books for boys, and a Z covered in scrapbook paper.

Above the change table (that Tim made for our firstborn 5 years ago) hangs a beachy baby onesie that I love, by SOOKIbaby.

I made this surfboard artwork with scrapbook papers picked up at Spotlight, and some bunting in colours of navy, green, blue, orange and beige.

I sewed decorations (a palm tree, flip flop, surfboard, guitar and another Combi), strung them to a hoop and added a recycled and recovered movement and music device to make this mobile.

Finally, a couple of cosy cushions for the chair, and the room was ready and waiting for our blue bundle to arrive!



    Lucky boy!!

    And very DADDY!!

    Great work.. x
