Today we are inviting you to discover Isla’s dreamy and angelic nursery designed by her mother Sarah Coghlan who is also the creative mind behind the kids interior studio My Little Beginnings based in Perth, Australia.
Sarah believes it is key to have a dual focus on aesthetics and functionnality when designing a bedroom for your child. From a design perspective in Isla’s bedroom “It was important to consider the style of the rest of our home” she says and adds that she and her husband brought the bright white and timber furniture through into Isla’s bedroom which connects beautifully to their living spaces and then added colour and feature to the rest.
Sarah also tells us that the concept for the design was the journey of parenthood which can be seen through the circular motifs used throughout the room. There are the more obvious circles in the wall decals through to the more subtle rug and canopy shapes.
Because Isla is at an age where she is discovering and exploring, Sarah and Isla’s father Alex made sure to design in some features that would encourage that independent play. Some of the bookshelves are installed at a level she can reach herself and the parents change up the display on the lower level to reflect what her currents interests are.
The multifunctional canopy creates a cosy cot cover and can can also be placed to the side of her cot on another hook to create a reading and activity nook over her beanbag. Her toy storage has been designed in a very loose and flexible way so that she can access the toys from her bags and baskets safely already, and this can easily adapt with her growing needs.

Sarah finds that it is an extremely beautiful time to be part of her clients’ lives, when they are expecting a baby or redesigning their children’s room because their family is growing into a new phase of life. She works with the best international brands as well as a myriad of extremely talented small businesses nationally. She works closely with her clients to design a space or a room that suits their style, their story and creates a space that excites their child’s imagination and encourages play and discovery.
My Little Beginnings is growing and expanding and Sarah Coghlan is loving every minute of the journey. She says “Having the opportunity to touch lives of as many families as possible over the coming years is our ambition and an absolute pleasure.
