Real Rooms: A Neutral Nursery
Today, we have the most beautiful Scandi-inspired neutral nursery to share with you. Featuring soft grey, natural wood and monochrome elements, Lauren has created a calm and tranquil room for her baby boy due in a matter of weeks. Let's take a closer look.
Home: A detached new build in North Wales
Who lives here: Lauren, her husband Rob, and their dog Milo
Room: Nursery for our baby boy
Can you tell us a little bit about the room and how it's used?
It's not being used just yet. It's a nursery for our first child due very soon.
What was your inspiration behind the décor?
We wanted to create gender neutral room to grow with baby over his first few years. I liked the thought of a clean and soft look which I could add pops of colour to once we found out baby's gender.
If you could make any changes, what would they be?
None! I absolutely love it all! The Great Little Trading Co. furniture fills the space perfectly whilst looking incredible and feeling solid. It was all so easy to build too with instructions simple enough for my baby brain to manage.
Which GLTC products would you recommend?
All of them but I have three favourites:
The Tomorrow's Clothes Rail is absolutely gorgeous. Why hang such cute clothes behind closed doors when you can show them off? It's my favourite piece in the nursery.
The Abbeville Long Shelf Unit fits in the room perfectly and is so handy. I didn't realise how much storage I would actually need for a newborn. The storage cubes help me feel organised and hold bibs, wipes, muslin cloths and nappies aplenty.
GLTC has so many adorable toy carts to choose from. We picked the Little Star Toy Cart to coordinate with the wallpaper. It's already filled with cute little teddies and toys. Being on wheels, we can move it from room to depending on where the baby wants to play.
And do you have your eye on any others?
It's currently out of stock but I want to buy the grey star childrens lamp to put beside my chair in the cosy reading/nursing corner. And I absolutely LOVE the little play tents which I imagine toddlers like to make a den out of.
Looking to the future and being so happy with the quality of the GLTC furniture we currently have, I'm certain we will continue to stick with the brand as our baby grows.
What is your top tip for creating the perfect children's room?
Copy the GLTC catalogue!
What makes a happy home for you?
I'm a big believer that you are happiest when all senses are satisfied:
Sight - For me it's a clean space with eye catching statement pieces.
Touch - Cosy places to relax, soft cushions or blankets. I have a blanket in every room
Smell - Candles everywhere!
Sound - Our house is pretty quiet (soon to change I know) but I look forward to the sounds of giggles, chatter and play.
A huge thank you to Lauren for sharing her nursery with us.
