We have finally put the finishing touches to our nursery. I wasn't really styling this nursery to a particular theme but somehow my love for owls has slowly crept in. The colours are fairly neutral based on the quilt that I made. As soon as I found out we were expecting (even before I told hubby), I went straight to our local patchwork shop, excited with colours and a basic template in mind. It took me a whole day to put this quilt together with bamboo batting so bubs will be able to breathe and be warm. I figured as it was my first attempt, it's not too bad.
I realise the walls are still bare but I am waiting to meet our bubs, find out their personality and name before I decorate these walls. I initially created these frames with fabric iron on embellishments, glued onto paper, these were going to take place on the wall but when it came time to put them up, we have decided to wait.
The alphasketti cards came up quite cute, with black and white being the dominant colours that babies see, I believe these will certainly appeal to bubs. Yes, there is a touch of Ikea. I couldn't resist the bookshelf and although I haven't filled it up yet, I am sure it will not take long.
My husband and I made the dollhouse when I started teaching, since I have been home, it has been quite handy to place all of Tyler's baby shoes, even if they don't get used, they are still cute on show.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at our nursery, now we can't meet the little person who is going to occupy this room very soon.
