Nursery Prints + Decor

Mountain-nursery-decor
Strictly speaking, Isaac's room is no longer a nursery since he is already a toddler, but I'd really like to call it that since I never had the opportunity to decorate one when he was a newborn.

I'm still adding final touches to his room and it's not fully complete; there's a display shelf and bookshelf waiting to go up which will need some artful faffing to make it look instagram-worthy. Most of the prints for the wall are more or less up, as well as decorative wall shelves and some cute bear door knobs for the wardrobe.

It was perfectly timed that as I started to work on Isaac's nursery, I received this set of pretty 94 piece rose gold tool kit*. It had everything I needed to put up all the prints with including a very useful spirit level which tells me whether the hung prints are straight or not and even comes with nails too.

The handheld tool has a brilliant space-saving design that allows it to be straightened with a swivel of a button. So clever! I haven't needed to use everything from the tool kit yet, but I already know the pliers and screwdriver will be be used for more crafting projects. 

I have never seen a prettier tool set - light pink handles as well as a bag with rose gold zip details! I am now the proud owner of my very own rose gold DIY kit and I can't tell you how much I hate rummaging through G's mountain collection of tools.

I love this bear print from The Lovely Drawer which is now on sale, so grab it whilst you can! The lovely owner Teri did a custom colour of mint for me. I've been a follower of her amazing blog for a while and I'm pleased to finally own a piece of her artwork. The wooden frame is from an old print I already had.

The Totoro print is actually a face towel that I picked up whilst I was in Hong Kong, and it was just too nice to use! So I decided to make it into a frame instead. Anyone else buy pretty things and then feel like it's too precious to use?!

If you follow my Instagram, you'll know that I saw the mountain print on someone else's Instagram but I couldn't source it anywhere. It's fairly simple, so I bought a calligraphy pen from eBay and just drew it myself. Have to say I am pretty pleased with myself, haha. Both are using Ikea Ribba frames.

These 2 very cute house shaped shelves are from H&M - it's no secret that I absolutely love the homeware at H&M and I am forever looking out for new items. The pom pom balls add some colour to an otherwise white wall/white decor.

The 2 little mountains are actually just cut from cardboard and I drew the black peaks with the black calligraphy ink pen I used for the mountain print. I'd seen cute little wooden mountains everywhere, but they weren't cheap and I didn't fancy playing with wood and paint. These cardboard mountains literally took a few minutes to make! Once drawn and cut, I taped a bottle cap to the back so they would be free-standing. The green tree is from Isaac's train set and the sweet penguin was from M&S.

The bear door knobs for Isaac's wardrobe is from Not On The High Street and the cloud with Isaac written on was a present from lovely Tiffany of The Crafty Party.


I hope you guys enjoyed this peek into Isaac's room, I'll share a part 2 once all the other bits are in place. Thanks for visiting!
