What was your inspiration for the room?
I wanted the nursery decor to be a calm and somewhat whimsical space without being too childish or cutesy. Once I found the Inke Heiland vintage wallpaper tree, all the other pieces fell into place. I knew it would be the focal point, so I let it lead the direction of the room.
What’s your fave piece in the room?
Well, you can't see them in this photo, but it would have to be the vintage dresses my mum and friends have passed along to me. I have them hanging on hooks around the room and I love dressing up my daughter Orla in them. I'm a firm believer in actually using the beautiful, vintage objects we own and not just displaying them.
The Eames rocker. I bought it off of a friend of mine who also happens to be an architect. He got a great deal on the piece but was disappointed with the colour when he got it home. He asked me if I wanted to buy it off of him and I jumped at the chance. I paid a fraction of the actual retail price.
Probably the vintage wallpaper tree, though I wasn't afraid to spend the money because I knew it would be the outstanding feature in the room. With something as dramatic as this, you don't need to add a lot of other artwork or home decor accessories.
What are you looking to add next?
Nothing, really – the room is pretty complete. However, I do have a weakness for linens, especially baby blankets, so one or two of those might make their way in!
Where did you get most of the pieces for the room?
The pieces are from all over the place. The crib and change table are from Nurseryworks. The rug is from Dash & Albert. The baskets are from West Elm. The pendant light is by Tord Boontje. The linens are from Virginia Johnson, Pottery Barn and John Lewis. The rattan pouf is from Serena and Lily.
