There's nothing I love reading about more than other people's homes and interiors posts so having re-done the attic bedroom in our home as a nursery space for Little L, I couldn't wait to share what we have done with it. For almost 5 years, our third bedroom sat lonely at the top of our three storey barn conversion, unloved, untidy and full of stuff which would normally go in a garage or loft space. Although Little L currently sleeps in our room, we wanted to create a space for him before he was born as we knew we wouldn't have time once he'd arrived. It's such a transformation and we have worked hard to make it a really comfortable, light space for him. I'm so proud of it and when we have viewers around to look at our house (which is currently for sale) this room along with the kitchen are by far people's favourites.
As it's on the top floor of the house, it occupies the entire floor along with the bathroom, so it's a funny 'L' shape. We have sectioned off one part of the 'L' as storage and office space, using these elephant/yellow chevron curtains which I designed and made with my mother-in-law.
The other part of the 'L' is a big open space where we come in through the door. There's a huge Velux window which lets in so much light. The chest of drawers is the IKEA Hemnes. When we decorated we also got a lovely new grey carpet and really thick underlay which is lovely to walk on.
Next to the door we have three floating book ledges. These are the Knoppang picture ledges from IKEA and are £6 each. I really love this part of the room as it adds some colour to the wall and we enjoy switching up the books at different times of year.
The bedding was made for me by a lady on ebay. Her shop is called Mummy Daddy UK. I love grey and yellow and the elephants on the bedding became the theme for the entire room. I then bought the exact same grey elephant fabric for the curtains along with yellow chevron fabric too.
I didn't want to go too over the top with the elephants but I couldn't resist this laundry/toy container which is by Little Bambino Australia but which I picked up in TKMaxx for around £10.
I don't tend to use the top of the chest of drawers as a change unit and as we only have Velux windows in this room, there's no window sills to put trinkets on, so I display Little L's treasures on here.
This is one of Little L's and LO's favourite little things to carry out and about with them, and he often comes in our change bag with us. It's from a lovely toy shop in a town near us called Rainbow Wood, but they can be found at other places online.
I love these traditional wooden circus skittles by Orange Tree Toys. They actually belong to LO but we keep them in the nursery as we use it as a play room while Little L sleeps in our room. They are so beautifully decorated.
Little L's growing collection of toys he can call his own- the giraffe was a present before he was born, the grey elephant was a birth present from me and Mr F when he was born and is from Jojo Maman Bebe, the fawn bunny is by Jellycat and was an Easter gift from my parents, and the white bunny soother is also Jellycat and from my middle sister.
I love this part of the room- the chair is an old one and dark green velvet underneath, so we cover it with a white and grey throw from IKEA. It is ridiculously comfy to sit and feed Little L on. The letter cushion is from George @ Asda and costs £5.
The wall colour is chic shadow by Dulux.
I love this elephant nappy caddy which I picked up in TKMaxx. The grey elephant chevron design fits the theme perfect. It was about £9.
The most recent addition to Little L's bedroom is this lovely personalised cross stitch picture which was made for him by Mr F's sister. It's just adorable.

So that is our grey and yellow inspired baby nursery for Little L. I have done a little video too which shows some of my favourite bits and pieces around the room and a room tour too which I hope you like watching.
