When 8 months preggers, I ordered hubby to paint the baby’s room. I had picked a mint green, perfect for the unborn boy or girl. I picked blues and oranges to complete the overall color scheme. Pretty unique I thought, and gender neutral. Now that my little newborn has exploded into a 3.5 year old toddler, he has plenty to say for himself about his room but he gives me a lot of creative freedom. I did not really want to go into a total redo/repaint as it would take a lot of time, and buying new items according to a new colour scheme is, I believe, just over the top.
So, this is how I transformed his baby cocoon into a toddler paradise.

Gone are the days of “room in a bag” and Disney-themed wall paper. Nowadays, parents are opting to roll up their sleeves and spend time designing and assembling their little one’s nursery with the same consideration and taste as the rest of their home. Traditional pastel paint colours have made way for “grown-up” colour schemes and decor. Wallpaper with cartoon clowns and jungle animals has been replaced with modern graphics and sophisticated floral prints. Hand-sewn quilts, vintage artwork and “upcycled” furniture are all the rage, meaning parents-to-be are spending an awful lot of time perusing garage sales, scouring Pinterest and throwing themselves into the DIY revolution. Today we feature baby Easton’s nursery.
