who lives here?
Archie, 13 months in Sydney, NSW, Australia.
The picture frames were from Target and the embroidery hoops from Spotlight. Michelle filled the hoops with fabric sourced from Etsy and Ikea. The three tree canvases were also covered in Ikea fabric. The baskets under the change table were $50 AUD each from Ikea, the baskets in the bookshelf were from Kmart. Some of the toys were gifts but most (not all pictured here) were from second hand markets such as babykidsmarket and prelovedmarkets.
materialsThe white walls are painted in Dulux Whisper White and the green feature wall was made by taking a swatch from Bunnings that was matched by Porter's Paints, as Michelle wanted a lox-toxicity paint.
furnitureThe cot and change table came in a package from Toys R Us and the shelving unit was $60 AUD from Kmart.
Some glow-in-the-dark stickers needed to be removed from the ceiling and Michelle painted the feature wall. She also made the embroidery hoops, trio of tree canvases and the framed Little Golden Book letters. Everything else was ready to go as the room had previously belonged to Archie's big brother.
best buysThe cot and change table that came in a package for $300 AUD, and the toys that were purchased from just $2 AUD!
baby space faveThe deep sage green feature wall and framed Little Golden Book pages spelling out Archie's name - fun, cute and classic.
top tipsMichelle says, "Don't think everything has to be matching to create a beautiful room - eclectic styles are so interesting! Shop around - both online and in stores - there is so much out there. If you're unsure of what your style is, have a look at sites like ohdeedoh or search for nurseries and children's bedrooms on flickr and you'll soon find that you gravitate towards certain styles, themes and colour schemes."
