Annie's Nursery Revealed! Before and After!

Hi all!

Thanks for all the well wishes on the birth of Annie. She is such a lovely little girl and is doing well and gaining weight rapidly.

After a couple of weeks at home I finally have a second (thanks to hubs and the long weekend) to blog the pictures of Annie's nursery! You can see a couple of the detail posts here and here and here and I'll post details of all the items I have chosen at the end of the post.   Once we found out we were having a little girl I always envisioned a graphic bright nursery for her and we had such fun creating this one. Without further ado - here are the before and the after pictures!

Before! - This picture was  taken just after we moved in three years ago hence all the boxes; but basically apart from putting a bed in here it had remained this horrible since then!  The cupboard in the corner housed the boiler, but since then we have upgraded to a combi system so the boiler is no more hence a little bit more space on that side.  We replaced the carpet to a more neutral colour and had the walls re-plastered and painted white which offsets all the other bright colours in the room I think!

After! 

It is such a bright and colourful space now!  We decided to keep the majority of the furniture in the room white, opting for basics from John Lewis and Ikea for the cot, daybed and drawers (which we are using as a changing table.)  The statement pieces in the room are the gorgeous pink chair from Argos (see this post)  and the rug from Urban Outfitters and curtains made by my Mother in Law with fabric from Fabric Rehab. I was a little worried about the clashing patterns but I think it works well actually! The bunting gifted from my good friend Will was a late addition added only after Annie was born but it just finishes the room so nicely!
