Proud as a peacock
A Vibrant approach to creating an elegant & comfortable nursery.
The brief for this room was to design a beautiful unisex nursery that was practical and maximised the limited space available.
My inspiration stemmed from the elegant rocking armchair which I knew would offer either parent the comfort they needed in the middle of the night when baby was awake.
The material of the armchair reminded me of a peacock’s feathers and had a luxurious velvet texture which was very soft to touch and so I built the room design from there, bringing in jewelled colours of vibrant blues and greens.
A simple black out white linen blind ensured the room was dark when baby needed to nap but also allowed the curtains to take centre stage. The deep mint tones of the curtains complemented the chair and by hanging them as high as possible, give the illusion of a larger room.
I added touches of metallic and kept pattern to a minimum to ensure the room remained relaxing and calm.
Soft lighting and a simple storage unit in jade green meant everything was at arms reach for the parents along with offering flexible and concealed storage.
I kept the cot and changing table a crisp white to contrast against the deep grey on the walls. Finally, a very large sheepskin rug covered the floor and gave a supporting hug to anyone who happened to step into the room.
