As you’re probably aware we moved house last year and have been pottering away decorating each room. We are now in progress decorating Toddler H’s nursery… I thought I might share some of my nursery and toddler bedroom inspiration from Homify. If you haven’t used Homify it’s a website full of design and inspiration, and I need all the inspiration I can get as we’ve had both H’s playroom to decorate as well as her bedroom. We’ve painted her nursery a pale pink and want a lovely calm space for her to learn to sleep nicely in. Anyway, I’ll get onto my inspiration instead of rambling…
Nursery inspiration and toddler bedrooms:
As with Pinterest, browsing Homify leads to all sorts of amazing rooms…. isn’t this incredible?
On a more realistic note for our house, and most houses, I think bedrooms should be calm and relaxing, but also somewhere little H will be able to sit and play, read her books and have fun with her cuddly toys.
I really think the calmness of this room must give it such a relaxing feel, but still have cosy play spaces:
Realistically I think we’ll end up with something like this when she’s a little older:
or, I hope this, I think this is just a step further than the photo above, and really realistic for most people to achieve:
In any children’s room, and in saying that, any parent’s room, good storage is obviously a must. This is something we’re currently lacking in. I think the fact that the sort of unit in the room above has spaces to display items (I’m thinking her special teddies and photos of her aunties and grandparents), but, also has spaces for the boxes of toys too.
Once, I got on the train of thought of looking at storage and features for her room, I found this magnificent bookcase:
To me, this room, is calm, luxurious and cute all at once. And that book-tree just looks really amazing. It really sets the room apart from any other. Another project for you hubby? 🙂
In saying that, I also love the simplicity of these bookshelves and may use this sort of idea for H’s playroom (they would obviously work well in a nursery too):
From a nursery cot to a toddler bed:
I have also realised recently that we actually have to plan H’s toddler room opposed to calling it a nursery all the time, and to take account for her having a toddler bed. That just seems so scary at the moment, she’s only 17 months old, but I have to be real and I know it’s most likely less than a year away. This isn’t anything I’ve considered and I really need inspiration.
I think this sort of idea is perfect: the butterfly bed in this room looks so cute:
I think this might be another project for us. I’m quite sure hubby is more than capable of making this bed for H when she’s ready to move from a cot to a toddler bed. Hubby are you up for it?
The under-window storage is also a brilliant idea (in the photo above).
I also stumbled across some really awesome beds, like this Thomas the Tank Engine bed:
And this for any Cars lover:
In saying that, I prefer this bed I think to the one above, it’s a bit calmer and includes more sleep inducing tones which would be perfect for any nursery or toddler room:
Don’t you just love how inventive these beds are?
The fun factor:
This is one thing I’ve seen before, but thought I’d also include it as this is on a bigger scale than I’d seen before. I would have absolutely LOVED this blackboard wall as a child. I think we might do something like this for Toddler H in a few years. Well, maybe when she’s at school so we can trust her with the chalk
And, this amazing car track wall:
I know a few toddlers who would just love this, and I think H is getting close to that too.
So, what are you waiting for… go and get browsing, there is more than just Pinterest out there, Homify has so much inspiration on all aspects of design, not just nursery and kids rooms.
