Nursery and Kids room

Monochrome Scandinavian style kids room

July 3, 2015

In the baby news post earlier this week I promised to show you our nursery and here it is. Actually it is the room of our 2 year old son Tobias (baby Oskar is currently sharing a bedroom with us) and I don’t know if it’s right to call it a nursery – it’s something in between a nursery and a big boy’s room. It’s still work in progress, for example we are looking for a bigger bed right now and a reading corner is still waiting decorating. But this is how it looks right now. (Ok, I have to admit, it’s not looking quite the same at the moment, I did some styling before taking photos and with a two year old playing and using his room it won’t look that way for long…)

For these photos I styled the room to look more monochrome than it actually is as I love monochrome Scandinavian style kids rooms, but I know that in reality it’s quite hard to keep it that way. To be honest, I don’t think a kids room should be that monochrome and organised at all – some mismatching colours and details are actually quite cute if they represent that little human who lives there with all of his interests and preferences and toys :)

However, I like to keep the background simple and light so that the overall look of the room won’t be too busy for the eye. That’s why I have chosen black and white textiles for the room. This cute and fun bedding is a Zero to Hero duvet set from Frankie and Frenchie (who I introduced you here). I love it and so does Tobias! It’s really soft material, it has quirky design and as a bonus it’s made from organic cotton!

Another detail that Tobias love’s in his room is a Miniwilla Mr. Agent poster from The Poster Club. I chose it mainly because I liked it, but as soon as it arrived and we had it unpacked his face turned into a big smile :)

There are also some of my own designs – for example the little house pillow and the “T” cushion. I had so much fun sewing those, if only I had more time for making things for kids with my own hands… !

So this was a little nursery/kids room tour, I hope you liked it. I’d be happy to hear your thoughts about monochrome kids rooms versus colourful ones – it has been an inner battle for me for long time as I’m a huge fan of simple interiors decorated in monochrome or using subtle muted hues, but I’m not sure my kids won’t prefer more colourful room. And after all it’s their room and they have to like it :)

Lovely nursery and The Animal Print Shop

Finn Room

The photo of this lovely nursery styled by Sissy+Marley has been going around Pinterest during last days, but today when I saw it featured in My Scandinavian Home, I discovered something I really loved about this nursery and you can see it here on the next picture:

Namely, these framed animal prints from The Animal Print Shop are just too cute! White frames with simple and minimal white backgrounded prints on a white wall, this is something I want to try also in my own home someday :) Looks so simple and fresh and lovely!

Below some more inspiration of how to use these cute animal prints to decorate nursery or kids room. What do you think?
