room for baby : autumn skies

posted on: Thursday, June 6, 2013

Do you fancy thinking outside the traditional-nursery-colour-box? That's what Bec from At Penny Lane did when she created this autumnal-hued room for her little guy. Isn't it lovely?

Bec said, "I've found the best way to create a room with a theme that flows well is to find one or two pieces that you love and work from there. I found the ABC art print (top) that I loved, so I drew inspiration from that."

"I was also given a beautiful dresser that was my own as a child and my dad restored it as a gift for my son."

"I think that decorating should be fun and experimental," Bec explained. "It definitely doesn't need to be too expensive. I like to steer away from anything too matchy-matchy and add unique touches with handmade items and second-hand pieces."

"I wanted to create a room that I could easily adapt over time as he grows up and I love how it turned out. At the moment I'm looking at adding some more pops of colour and finding some lovely new linens for when my little guy moves into a toddler bed in the next few months."
