weeks days of rain the sun finally made an appearance in Aberdeen!
My plan was to make the most out of it and take a couple of photos of the nursery (I keep typing “nursesy” for some reason. Dont you just hate when that happens?).
After luring G out of my way with crackers and some toys, I was finally ready to press the shutter button, when my camera decided it was time to kindly inform me, that the battery was dead! I couldn’t help, but load the battery pack and attempt in at another time. Luckily I did manage to snap some pictures today, the second sunny day in a row!
We wanted to maintain a bright look within the nursery and add colour through G’s toys and some pictures on the wall. The great thing is that it is easy to change the “theme” or let the room grow and change with the child. I personally enjoy a B&W monocrome look, but I feel that it is not how I would like to decorate my child’s room. I think we managed to make a nice compromise between style and practicality.
We went for a Montessori-style nursery, where G could choose his toys and books himself (…and hopefully even learn to put them back where they belong). We took out his cotbed and only left the mattress of the floor and so far it has worked well for us.
There are still a few things we want to change, for example hang the bookshelves, change the curtains and possibly look for a small area rug and some cushions, but I find it is coming together quite nicely.
Wow, I didn’t know that I had this much thoughts to share about a nursery. To not bore you out of your minds, I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Hope you like them.
