A nursery is a special place where so much playing and dreaming begins, therefore we’re proud to present this fun and creative space designed by Elin Hjemli to you all today. Her son Gillis had a bit of a bumpy start in life as he was born four months early – and the family, who lives in Norway, had to spend over four month in hospital. Today he is a strong one year old adventurer, enjoying a jungle themed space with lots of fun details to get inspired by.

All the items are so perfectly chosen in this nursery, layered in just the right amount of texture and interest. The very first item Elin bought was the cute giraffe by H&M, standing next to the crib as a friendly guardian. Her other must-haves for the nursery were all the animal patterned items by Done by Deer and their green furniture that fitted the theme perfectly.

Elin also knew she wanted to make a nursery that Gillis could enjoy for a long time, without changing it too much as he grows up. Therefore the green bed by Done by Deer will remain as it converts from a cot to a junior bed and the changing table will be used as a dresser. Some of the cuddly toys might be replaced by other “big boy” toys though, such as cars and action figures.

Gilli’s favourite thing to do in the nursery is playing in his teepee, so his parents often sit next to it or inside, reading books.

Elin’s favourite feature in the room is the mountain mural that she painted herself. She complemented it with a warm green wallpaper for the opposite wall.

To conclude the tour, you might want to take Elin’s tips on decorating a boy’s room:

“My tip for decorating a boys’ room is that it doesn’t just have to be blue and lots of cars, think a little outside the box and create a room you wish you had when you were little. Invest in slightly more expensive furniture that you can use for many years to come so you don’t have to replace it as often.”
