Ruby’s Tranquil Nursery

AND A DASH OF LEOPARD LOVE

Having recently changed things around in Lily’s room a lot of the colour from Ruby’s nursery seems to have gravitated down to that end of the house. I have to say I am loving it. Ruby’s little room right from the start has been a light, tranquil and soothing space. Being the 5th member of our family Ruby has taken over our old study we converted just before she was born. It’s a tiny little room, it looks much bigger in pictures than it is in real life, so the soft colours and minimalist (for me, I’m no true minimalist as much as I’d love to be!) design creates a soothing, happy yet relaxed energy between these four walls. Complete with a ceiling fan, white plantation shutters and it’s very own little fireplace the light streams in all day and the air flows naturally, making what was a pokey little study a delightful space for our baby girl to sleep in.

I’ve posted plenty of pictures of Ruby’s evolving room over on my Instagram feed. But how could I resist sharing this edition on the blog, Ruby in her Leopard Wovenplay Lola Suit and matching Jess Brown doll from the delightful children’s boutique Lulu Little Store are just too much cute for one Instagram picture! Here you’ll see some of my favourite things I’ve gathered for Ruby this year. With a focus on handmade, and organics her room is full of natural non toxic fibres. Better for the planet, better for Ruby. Including cot sheets from possibly the most eco conscious company I have come across in the children’s clothing business, Mini Rodini, and hand-made dolls from two of my favourite children’s toy designers Cloth and Thread and Jess Brown. These are no ordinary dolls, so well made and so beautiful I had firm plans they’d stay put on the shelf for eternity, Ruby has other ideas, she loves them! They get thrown around, ears and hair pulled, kissed on the lips, socks removed and replaced (on an hourly basis) but I wouldn’t have it anyway. I love that she loves this space as much as I do. With firm extension and renovation plans for 2015 Ruby will move into a bigger room at the end of the year as she begins to need more space. But until then, this will do just fine.

  1. I absolutely love this room! All of the details are perfect – I love the clothes rack especially, as her outfits are to die for. Great use of space. I am begging Sasha to create firm extension plans too. My fingers are tightly crossed. PS I ordered three more prints from The Animal Print Shop earlier today! Love them. xo
