Thea, a photographer (see her amazing work here), has a keen eye for aesthetics, which is evident in the beautiful space she has created for her brand new baby boy. What I love about this nursery is that many elemnts have been passed down from friends and family, and many were handmade.

“My inspiration for this nursery was a combination of a few things… I wanted to create a space where I felt at peace as I lean toward the notion of “happy mom, happy baby”. I tend to have a very clean, simple approach to decorating and I loved the idea of a modern, minimalist, black and white theme, but I was concerned that it would come across as too cold and clinical, so I teamed it up with the woodlands theme to create some warmth and added a splash of colour with some of the KnickKnacks on the shelves.”

What a beautiful result!

The prints were drawings that Thea found in a book, then scanned and modified with a quote or a texture over it and printed on a matt board, and framed.

Thea made the bunting using felt and glue and some hessian cord to hang it.

The feeding chair was a gift from a friend. It used to be the feeding chair in her nursery.  Thea washed the covers and sanded down the chair to the light wood colour. It is called a Poang Rocker from IKEA (available from Nevada Furniture in Cape Town).

The cot is the very same one that Thea’s Dad slept in when he was a baby – “We didn’t even paint it, it is still in its original colour and shape.”

The stickers on the wall are from Twiggy Vinyl Wall Art

Thea came up with the design for the compactum and her mom built it  – Isn’t she awesome!

Both the industrial pendant lamp and the tripod lamp in the corner are from Mr Price Home.
