room for baby : aqua attic

posted on: Monday, May 10, 2010

Timeless toys and a wooden fish mobile add a quirky intrigue to the nursery.

An air of fifties storybook charm has been created with traditional dark timber pieces against pale aqua walls.

Cosy and vintage.

who lives here?
Oona, now 3 years (then newborn) in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

An eco-friendly, non-toxic paint mix in a unique aqua shade was chosen for the walls.


To furnish the nursery, Oona's mum Amanda simply bought a new cot then gathered pre-loved pieces and revamped them. She hauled the old mission bookcase out from the garage and repainted an armoire that she found on the street. For the change table she installed an antique dresser that belonged to her grandmother.

The colour combo of dark timber and aqua - gender neutral and pleasing to the eye.
