I needed to write about the beautiful space that was created for our little babes by my lovely friend Ness AKA OMG-Ness Styling (insert every party emoji ever created) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. When I decided I wanted to do up a cute little nursery for our babes I knew I didn't have the time nor patience so that's when I called in Ness so she could put her magic touch on everything. This gal can literally turn your styling and Interior decorating dreams into a reality. Be sure to follow her on Facebook and Instagram for everything styling and check out her website to see all of her amazing services shes offers.
When deciding on a theme and an overall feel for the room I knew I wanted to keep it really simple with nice, natural with neutral tones but a slight pop of color to give the babies a bit of individual style and flair.
It was also really important to me to work with lots of small businesses especially Kiwi Owned and Operated as I love to support local. So here is a list of all the incredible businesses we collaborated with to make Harlow and Noah's Nursery happen.
Poppy Cotton provided us with the most BEAUTIFUL bedding I have ever seen. I seriously need to invest in a Super King Duvet for our bed because that is how amazing their stuff is. We decided to go with the Pink Feather fitted sheet for Harlow and the Blue matching Feather fitted sheet for Noah. It was a really hard decision on what to choose for the quilt as there are so many designs that we loved but we decided on Matching Dream Catchers for our babes, Harlow got the Pink version and Noah got the Blue and Grey version these also came with a matching toddler pillow case each. The detailing and color is unreal, make sure you go and follow Poppy Cotton on Facebook and Instagram and be sure to check out their website for some amazing products.
We still had Henry and Theo's old cots which have so much sentimental value to them that we knew we had to use them. Ness had the amazing idea to up cycle them so we got the amazing Mother/Daughter team Made By Love in to work their magic. They work with Annie Sloan one of the best products on the market which is non toxic and safe for our little babes, it dried within 20 minutes and doesn't have any odor which is amazing. Our cots were painted with so much love and care and the final White Wash finish was incredible, they are definitely the stand out pieces in the nursery and we absolutely love them. Be sure to follow them on Instagram and check out their website for their one off bespoke pieces.
Black Sands Furniture came through with the most amazing custom made Twin Play Gym. It was the first they had ever made and let me tell you it is beautiful. I love that they use all Eco friendly materials and the fact that it came with play gym toys attached to it. The babies love hanging out together playing with their wooden gym toys and when they aren't playing with it, it easily folds up so we can store it away. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram and check out their website for all more Decor, Indoor and Outdoor Furniture.
Our custom made Woolen Macrame pieces named "Harlow" and "Noah" especially made by their talented Aunty Ruby who is the founder and creator behind Made By Ruby Lee. These are definitely statement pieces because of the intricate work and detail. Be sure to follow Made By Ruby Lee on Instagram to keep up with all of her custom made Macrame and Jewelry pieces.
Little Koha also sent us one of their Boutique gift parcels called "The Baby's Room" which was package so beautifully and contained a set of wooden counting blocks, a wooden and feather wall hanging, a white and grey felt garland and a A5 geometric bunny print. Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram and check out their website for more amazing Gift Parcels.
Little Love Bundle made us some beautiful custom made hanging wardrobes to hang a special little outfit on, we also had a custom peg family made in specific colors and a set of custom coloured nesting dolls. Make sure you follow them on Instagram and Facebook to check out what they have been making and head to their website to see all their nursery decor and teething products.
My Little Space who was started by two amazing Mamas made us one of their signature "My Little Space" signs, a Wooden Tee Pee for Noah and a Swan display shelf for Harlow which we love. You can follow them on Facebook and Instagram and check out their website for more kids decor.
Once Upon a Whim made Harlow and Noah the most gorgeous crochet Bunnies and a perfect little crochet basket to hold all of our Princesses headbands. Make sure you follow them on Facebook and Instagram and check out their website for more Modern Crochet items.
Our drawers are from Victors Furniture and our change table is from Trade me, the framed dream catcher print is from Farmers. Everything else you see in the room is from good old Kmart.
I hope you enjoyed looking at all the beautiful pictures of our little babies nursery and hopefully you have discovered some new products that you will love just as much as we do.
