Today we are travelling to Allgäu, Bavaria, to show you one of the most unique baby boy’s nursery rooms you’ve seen so far – Hugo’s wonderland! Hugo’s family of four (he has a three-year-old sister) lives in a countryside home with a beautiful view over the mountains that inspired his mum Eva to create this unique concept for her baby boy.
Before they moved from Munich, Eva was a product manager in a big sports company, but now she is entirely dedicated to raising her kids and turning their house into a home.
Pinterest and Instagram fuel her passion for design, but eventually, she chose not to follow trends but instead go for something different:
“I decided to use the Sian Zeng wallpaper. I know this wallpaper is not everyone’s taste for a nursery and that people usually think of bright colours in a baby’s room, but the room is very bright in general (we have a lot of huge windows in it), so the dark walls were perfect for us.”
However, the room wasn’t always looking like this.
“At first, there were just white walls. After some months I painted one of the walls blue, and again five months later the blue wall got a wallpaper, and another white wall turned blue. For me, now the room is perfect with a mixture of vintage and new furniture. I find the blue wall with the dark green wallpaper very calm. The woodland combined with grey sounds very dark, but with the natural wood and white, it doesn’t look dark at all.”
Since there is only one wall in Hugo’s nursery that isn’t slanted, adding storage was a challenge. It was close to impossible to arrange a locker, so Eva decided to use two chests of drawers instead.
“Also, we had to shuffle the bed around a bit until we got his final position,” she explains.
Eva loves DIY projects and prouds on revamping the blue vintage dresser she sourced not far away from their home. It is a very old piece, but she gave it a fresh coat of light blue paint from Farrow & Ball to bring it back to its glory.
“I love everything about this room, but wallpaper holds a special place in my heart. I’m just in love with the color combination of blue and dark green and love the grey Leander furniture dresser too,” Eva confesses.
The only thing she would add to the room is a handmade dresser that would fit into the slant and a second lamp from Zoe Rumeru (there is one in the room of Hugo’s sister).
“I believe that furnishing a room takes time and that you should let it evolve as months go by. For me patience is everything. Don’t buy all the things at once, but rather invest in high-quality furniture and decoration. And of course, top it off with beautiful decor,” Eva concludes.
