Modern Woodland Nursery

Modern Woodland Nursery

As someone very much enjoying their status of footloose and fancy-free 26 year old, it’s not often I find myself looking at pictures of nursery designs. But occasionally, one stumbles upon things (and then precedes to create a whole Pinterest board, { l i t t l e o n e s } filled with one’s findings. Casual.). When I “stumbled upon” the nursery that Australian blogger Kyree Harvey from Miss Kyree Loves designed with the help of Nest Design Studio, I just had to share it. It’s basically the baby version of everything I love. It’s bohemian, whimsical, nature-inspired and surprisingly practical.

*As most of the products are from Australian companies, I’m not going to link to them as most of my readers seem to be European or American. But for any Aussies out there, definitely head over to Kyree’s post where she has linked everything. And although many readers may not be able to shop the exact products, I hope this post inspires you to find similar pieces or that you enjoy the imagery anyway.*

The whitewashed timber look wallpaper serves as the perfect backdrop for Kyree’s gallery wall. If you like the look, I’d recommend checking out Rocket St. George’s collection of wood effect wallpapers. They’ve got amazing stuff.

O.M.G.! A baby clothes hanger! For baby clothes! For like, a baby!

My friend Ciara Eloise of Homework Interiors custom-made similar cloud wall décor for her room set at last year’s Ideal Homes Exhibition. Fair-goers young and old loved them!

 I’m so obsessed with this boho feather garland, I’m thinking of DIYing one for myself.

I like Kyree’s game plan; teach ‘em the beauty of wardrobe organisation at a young age.

Cute childlike bedding doesn’t have to mean cartoon characters, you know!

I’m a huge fan of decorating with fashion. If a dress is really beautiful, don’t hide it away in your wardrobe for most of the year; display it! Same goes for shoes, hats and, in this cases, baby moccasins (which, by the way, I fully intend to dress my future kids in).

You can pick up Ikea picture ledge really affordably and display your favourite books, artwork and photos on them.

To keep your nappy-changing essentials orderly, place them all on a nice tray. Same goes for adult bathroom essentials.

You mightn’t have copped it, but Kyree’s changing table is actually the perennial bargain-hunter favourite; the Ikea Hemnes chest of drawers. She changed the knobs and laid a changing mat on top. When the baby outgrows nappies, the unit will still be super functional thanks to its 8 drawers.

I like how Kyree chose a glider, footstool and side table that weren’t typical of a nursery. This is a clever way to extend the usability of your furniture as you can move them to other rooms in the house once the baby grows and they’re no longer needed in the nursery.

Another clever tip is to not feel like you have to plaster the walls in pink or blue Disney characters just because it’s a nursery. Choose artwork that’s cute and fun, but also gender and age neutral. This way you won’t be spending money undoing and redoing your child’s room every few years.
