Styling a nursery is the perfect opportunity to inject a sense of personality into your precious bundle’s dwelling space. Just as every child has their own unique traits and quirks, so should their bedroom. We’ve searched high and low to bring you eleven of the most wonderfully unique nurseries from the home-schooled décor enthusiasts and professional interior designers. Regardless of their training, what’s clear to see is that a whole lot of imagination and love was poured into these works of art.
From riotous colour clashes and chic chalet aspirations to whimsical flights of fancy and bursts of botanical beauty, there’s an abundance of inspiration to fuel your next kids’ interior project.
The sauna-inspired wood-panelled wall and floor combo not only makes for a warming outlook in this room, but it also gives a unique ski chalet vibe fit for a family of snowboarding enthusiasts. Oak and macrame contribute to a retro 70’s direction and whether intentional or not we love the mirroring of the flower mirror and rug. How adorable is the rattan giraffe caddy, perfect for stashing toys or taking beloved dolls and teddies on a safari adventure?
Up, up and away, is the theme in Milo’s magical room. The Balloon Race bespoke mural by Graham and Brown brings all the charm. What a blissful way to drift off to sleep, surrounded by a fleet of hand-drawn vintage balloons in soothing pastel tones. A burst of sunshine yellow bedlinen and primary pom poms on a striped star cushion offer a cheerful contrast in this quirky kids’ room.
Ooh, la la indeed! Parisian chic meets bohemian boudoir in this little corner of Alexis’ Texan home. We think it’s the cot that brings the drama, but the cursive font in the framed print also says, ‘styled with bags of sass’. You could remove the crib altogether, and the nursery would pass as a creative writer’s hideout or a glam reading room.
We adore Brittany Greene’s eclectic pink and green nursery designed for her daughter Lola. The Tropicali in South Beach banana leaf wallpaper by Domesticate was chosen for its tranquillity and works brilliantly with the cot’s acrylic panels that allow the pale aqua, mint, cream and jade pattern to shine through. Two-toned scallops on the rug bring a welcome pattern clash without too much upheaval. There’s colour, there’s texture, and there’s pattern, but still, there is calm. What we perhaps love most of all is the story behind the turquoise tulip table. It was one of Brittany’s first adult furniture purchases when she was 24 and working at a modern furniture and home décor brand. How poetic that it became a key piece in her first born nursery?
Baby Amelie is treated to a nursery full of originality and a style that hints at her French origins. Aqua green wood panels by Lambri create a Moorish vibe on the wall and frame the delightful reading area complete with wire bookshelves, an ochre ottoman and a dormant tiger rug. The custom crib is made stately by the draped teal canopy suspended from the punchy saffron ceiling. And that dresser! Oh my, a vision of candy pink perfection!
Mint and pink are the dominant forces in Dusty’s nursery come guest room. It’s inspired how Hannah has zoned the space to create a nursery quarter and accommodate a double bed for visitors. Colour blocking to the walls and ceiling gives the illusion of height and accentuates the toffee canopy’s pinnacle. A spotty leopard rug, glimpses of foliage and a tropical bird mobile contribute to a sense of rainforest adventure. Time to pack that gorgeous ‘see ya’ suitcase by @howiwonderkids and join the expedition.
A unique and dreamy room for Story is the creation of style-savvy parents, Josh and Jenna, who had the foresight to design their nursery with the future in mind. The little nook accommodates a single bed perfectly ready for when she outgrows her crib.
A muted natural colour palette is fresh but soothing and feminine with just enough peachy blush to say; ‘a girl resides here’. We love the darling sun rising behind the crib and the innovative use of paint techniques to frame the spotlight and create a wavy border against the wardrobe.
A tried and tested way to introduce personality to a kids’ room is with a riot of colour and collection of soft furnishing friends, and that is precisely what Sophia of @thiscolourfulnest has done here. Clemmie’s rainbow-fuelled room is a delight to behold. From the Farrow and Ball Sulking Pink scalloped edge detail to the minty marvel that is Mustard Made’s Shorty locker, it zings energy and excitement.
A watchful deer from Jimmy Cricket and Fleur Harris’ woodland wallpaper guards the head of Martha’s cot in a maternal display of affection. The woodland charm continues in an ivy garland atop a mustard canopy. We love this whimsical nursery with all of its romantic magic and mystery and pleasing symmetry in the whitewashed floorboards and brilliant white ceiling. The powder pink wall and matching skirting boards provide a beautifully delicate and feminine contrast to the patterned wallpaper’s rich depth. The carefully curated dark green, mustard and pink tones of the hand-painted M by @creatrivestudiocaro and ceramic balloons, bought in Puglia, are the icing on the exquisitely baked cake.
Jaunty angles and sloped ceilings are put to good use in this fairy tale nursery, brimming with original features and childlike charm. A unique watercolour mural feels like opening the pages of a much-loved storybook, ready to regale the inhabitant with tales of wonder and delicate blue skies full of sun-drenched loveliness. An elliptical cot is the transportation for this escapade with kaleidoscopic cushions a reprieve from the neutral tones of the dreamy marshmallow coverlet. And is that a flying elephant sitting pretty on the dusty rose sheepskin stool, ready to join the travelling circus?
This ‘inside out’ room by design house Casa Natoca is a revelation. The finished effect is just like all of nature was invited in bringing the notion of new shoots of life with it. The stunning vintage wicker cradle is so unique, and we love those pastel aqua angel wings signifying a protective watch over the sleeping beauty. There’s a botanical feel to the space that brings a sweet serenity that we just adore.
Peaches and cream channelled through the medium of ombre shiplap walls deliver a boho nursery with a difference. It’s maximum minimalism. Maximum impact, minimal accessorising. A solitary homemade macrame hanging delivers all the wall art needed with a wonderful symmetry that chimes with the woven rug and frilly ruched blanket.
