Make it little part 2

Belinda at Nest Design Studio has been at it again with her second installment of the new Make it Little series where she translates grown up interiors into nursery spaces.

This one features a Greg Natale interior, he is a well known Aussie interior designer and the result is a soft yet contemporary look with a bit of an Aussie slant ..love the wallpaper with the cockatoos. And seriously who wouldn’t love that chair!

Chevron chic for the nursery

Chevron is trending everywhere, especially in nurseries.

In the similar theme to my recent post showing adult interior schemes transformed into nurseries..I thought it would be great to share this post from Nest Design Studio.
I have been following Belinda on Facebook for a little while now and love seeing her unique product and mood boards that she comes up with for her clients. She specialises in children’s interiors and you can commission a custom design online ..got to love the internet!!
In the first of her Make it Little series she has provided some items for a truly chic nursery inspired from a Jonathan Adler Hollywood Regency style interior.
I love it….and I hope you do too.

Cloud quilt

I was just going back through some old emails and found the link to the day my quilt was featured on the apartment therapy website. If you havent heard of this site it a huge US website and blog featuring all things design, interiors related. This was so exciting and I only discovered it at the time through a Facebook friend. so I thought I’d bring you up to date with some of my media in the next few weeks.

That particular quilt has gone to a lovely new home but I have found that the grey and aqua combination has been quite a popular one..probably as it is good for a unisex or boys room. I mean I think it’s fine for a girl too..don’t get me wrong..

chuck and taz pram liners

yesterday I was lucky enough to squeeze in an impromptu coffee catch up with the lovely Cat from Chuck and Taz . We met through our mothers being quilting friends, and when we worked out that we have etsy in common and small children our friendship has gone from there. you know when you feel like you’ve known someone for a long time but you have just met..I love that.

it’s so great to have someone to discuss business ideas with and who shares a passion for etsy..we never run out of things to talk about that’s for sure.
she was lucky enough to have a lovely feature on Style my Child which is so great because she makes such great and useful product.


as you can see she has a great eye for cool fabrics and mixing colour..cam is really almost out of the pram but I do wish I had had one or two of her liners when he was smaller.

Yellow and Aqua Nursery

Since we were just looking at the yellow and aqua elephant quilt I thought I’d add some cute nursery pics I found on pinterest to get you inspired.
I think a lot of people used to think of it as the boring kind of colors you have to choose from if you don’t know the sex of your baby..same goes for baby clothes, however I think these are great looking rooms in their own right. my client who ordered the elephant quilt knew she was having a boy and chose this scheme anyway much to her friends confusion..well I think she is onto something.

these rooms have a relaxed feel to them and a lot of different colors mix in well which means you can keep your options open without being boring.

Storm Cloud Baby Quilts

We have talked a bit about the black , grey and yellow color schemes about and I have shown you my little inspiration pics for my storms quilts…well finally they are done and now listed in my etsy shop.
I was really happy with how they turned out..nice to do something different and just one off every so often to keep the creative juices flowing.

I think they could look great in one of the nurseries we have featured on here or in a room with a nice strong yellow wall maybe with some funky cloud wall stickers.

Scandinavian Nursery Style

Scandinavian style nursery

What a striking and stylish scandinavian nursery ..I just had to share it with you. Loving the modern design and the mix of textures from the rustic wooden steps to the soft woolly rug. To upkeep this kind of minimal style I would definitely need a dedicated toy room as I feel like we are being overrun by toys lately.


The key to recreating this minimal scandi look in white is to add plenty of texture to create interest. Just as they have done here to add the softness of the sheepskin and also the texture and rustic feel of the timber step and black board.
