The making of Georgia Grace’s Nursery

Styling: Ses + Jen Photographer: Ruth Gilmour

When designing a nursery for our little poppet due October we wanted to include pieces that would stand the test of time, hero pieces that she could treasure forever. We also wanted to create texture and warmth with the inclusion of an Icelandic sheepskin, zebra cowhide, woven wall hanging and indoor plants.

This Blacklist banner was the first piece we purchased for her room from their amazing 2014 Blacklist for Kids collection, with a height of 1.5m x 1m on heavy duty canvas this beautiful piece set the tones and colour way for the rest of the room. The picture window above her crib looks out onto beautiful leafy trees and sees the first morning sunshine which perfectly mimics the banner.

The Mocka drawers are the perfect size and tones for the room. The Jolt 3-drawer is a great affordable piece and the perfect size and depth for all those tiny baby clothes.

The hubby and I created a hanging copper clothing rail using a Mocka floating shelf, Lapco leather straps and copper pipe and caps. The warmth of the copper and leather perfectly reflect the Lightly copper hanging planter and tie the room together. The wall hanging is inspired by the traditional Moroccan wedding blankets and is available from Ses + Jen – The Store. The Ahoy trader cross picks up the monochrome details from the zebra rug, and adds a touch of Byron Bay Bohemian. The shelf provides the perfect place to display a few treasured pieces like her gorgeous boots from Sienna baby, and handmade feather crown from Gold Frankincense and Myrrh, stamped with her name.

The couch is also perfect for cuddling up on and with a story book as you can put your feet up, get comfy and snuggle on the soft Icelandic sheepskin. The Mr X cushion from our fave local homewares store – The Design Depot; perfectly pulled in a hint of sunshine yellow, our chosen accent colour for the room.

Lastly to the crib, my dream crib. I have loved the Leander cribs as long as I can remember and love how they convert firstly, to a toddler bed then as an extended child’s bed.

Both the quilt and knitted blanket were made by Jen. The gorgeous tassels are by Maker and Merchant and add a lovely pop of colour and texture to the felt that wooden bead garland.

Indoor plants were used throughout the nursery to add a gorgeous green natural element to the decor. We love the way philodendron drapes and the baby fiddle leave fig was a great size for the floating shelf.

We were thrilled with how the room turned out and were fortunate to work with some great businesses to pull together this room and have listed these below:

Sugar and Spice and All things Nice

That’s what little girls rooms are made of….

Girls rooms have to be some of the most fun to design, as the options are endless. Girls rooms can be bold and bright or soft and sweet. One of our all time favourite girls rooms is this beautiful nursery by Amber Interiors.

GR0We love the layering of rugs to add texture and colour. This Turkish kilim rug really themes the room and ties in beautifully with the Rachel Castle artwork. The hand loomed wall hanging picks up the colour palette of the rest of the room beautifully.

GR1Natural textures have been brought in with the bamboo blind and wooden dip dyed stools.

GR3Woven baskets are double as being both beautiful and practical for storage of toys or other essentials, Pops of neon in the Turkish throw and cushions give a fresh modern edge.

GR4
This nursery has the perfect mix of brights and neutrals that come together to create a delightful room that this little girl will enjoy for years.
