room for baby : sooki stripes

posted on: Thursday, February 9, 2012

baby space's Belinda from Nest Design Studio gave her son Charles' room a gorgeous modern makeover.

The white framed gallery above Charles' cot displays images in keeping with the cool tones of the space.

Junior sized replica Eames table and chair set complete the modern feel.

Modern with an 'around the world' theme.

who lives here?
Charles, 1 year-old in Victoria, Australia.

Many of the items in Charlie’s room were made by me, however Etsy is always a favourite starting point when I’m looking for interesting and unique finds, particularly for his gallery wall. The world map and the ‘stash print are from My Sweet Prints, the soldier and bus print are from The House Sparrow,the Sweet Dreams print is from Elissa Hudson, the Welcome to the World Little One is a card I purchased from Milt & Joe, and I made his footprint.

I painted the striped feature wall (yes, me at 35 weeks pregnant with a 10 pound baby – that was fun trying to reach the bottom stripes!) which was inspired by both a room designed by Samantha Pynn and also a onesie by Sooki Baby that Hugh (my eldest son) had from when he was a baby. In fact, the paints were colour matched and scaled from the onesie.

My beautiful egg chair fits this room beautifully and was a gift from my dad when I was pregnant with Hugh. The side table was a junk shop find that I sanded and painted a high gloss red, and the bookshelf is from Officeworks and I added the blue backing to it.

My favourite DIY project in Charles' room is the atlas mobile. It was really simple to make and each globe features an important country/town/place to us, including the towns we were born, where we went on our honeymoon etc. I also love his reading corner, which I made all the cushions for.

best buys
I can’t go past the Ikea spice racks. I have one above his change table which holds all the everyday creams we use, but also books and toys for keeping the boys occupied whilst changing them.

top tip
Don’t be afraid of using red in a nursery or child’s room. It’s not a colour you should use in bucket loads, but little touches really make a room pop!

  5. Love love love the spice rack idea. I can't seem to find any picture ledges, but what I do have in the garage is an old spice rack that my hubby made me years ago. I'm thinking a lick of paint and it could soon house my 4-yr-old's library collection. Thank you for sharing.

  6. C’est devenu la mode, klima servisi maintenant, et c’est dégoutant, il y a de plus en plus de concours de ce genre lancé par de grands groupes, des eca kombi servisi grosses sociétés, avec une rémunération dérisoire. Vous, Kielo, vous ne doutez klima servisi pas une seconde ? mais quand de plus en plus de gens seront payés de la sorte, je vous souhaite un vrai boulot en CDI, ou un poste de fonctionnaire.demirdöküm kombi servisi

    Oui sûrement un bon coup marketing, et peut-être rien de plus.almanya sohbet
    On peut penser qu’il y a assez de forts en maths à la NASA pour klima servisi trouver une solution satisfaisante. Il est même possible webmaster forumları qu’ils l’aient déjà trouvée, de quand date la découverte du problème ? webmaster forumu

  7. You really do have an eye for interior design. The Sooki Baby stripes are a perfect addition to bedroom! I love how you have combined them with the chevron stripes as well they really are great contrast.

  8. The noahs ark wooden toy is gorgeous! Where did you get it?
