Velveteen Babies and our selection of the best bunny room decor.

In the world of babies and nursery styling, there is one extremely popular creature that pops up in all shapes and forms. The bunny.

Finding classic, muted and beautiful bunnies take a bit more sourcing. A few months ago I discovered a brand on Instagram called Little Blue Nest. I clicked on their page and was instantly drawn to the colours and illustrations which hark back to an Enid Blyton age, and reminded me of one of my favourite childhood books- The Animals of Farthing Wood.

Created by Ila, the Little Blue Nest launched in late 2016. Ila set out to create an elegant and timeless nursery brand, and each each item is created from pure and organic cotton threads.

Another heirloom nursery purchase has to be this ceramic rabbit light £70 by White Rabbit England. They are handmade in the U.K and are a classic, something to love for years to come. It would look perfect on a wooden shelf, stacked on vintage books, or with a Velveteen Babies garland and a botanical print in any nursery.

The Little Blue Nest collection covers both beautiful design, with the softest muslin. My daughter, Willa likes to sleep holding a muslin, and ever since I made my first purchase, our bunny swaddle blanket has been much commented on when we’ve had it out and about.

Luckily for us, the range has increased since our first parcel, and the Little Blue Nest Baby range now comprises of soft muslin cot sheets, quilts, muslins and the original swaddle blankets in this bunny design, but also in a carefully and lovingly created collection of a number of illustrations. We took delivery of the softest cot sheet the other day, and it’s truly lovely.

Our sheet is teamed with a soft muslin Numero74 cot bumper and I’ve introduced wood and natural design influences to Willa’s space- a natural sheepskin rug on the floor and plenty of greenery in raffia baskets really works to create a calm and serene sleeping arrangement. Our sweet Maileg fawn toy is sourced from Coco&Wolf.

Best bunny finds for a natural inspired nursery.

I’ve not got any artwork up, as we are moving house next week, but I think vintage inspired bunny prints by Boo&Bell would look sweet hung on a wood poster hanger around a nursery, or this Etsy find is this gorgeous print by Howell Illustration, which is so simple and subtle.

Velveteen Babies creates a magical nursery theme.

Creating a beautiful ethereal kids space is so simple with the addition of some gorgeous interior accessories and clever (but easy to achieve) styling. There’s such a movement towards beautiful, muted pastels, grey and soft watercolour textures in children’s interiors, that capture the imagination and are incredibly dreamy.

For a girls room, then dirty muted pinks, or a stylised wallpaper can work well to give the room depth and identity, or go with a grey, Little Greene does some fantastic shades – My favourite is Dorchester Pink. For unbeatably beautiful wallpaper then you must visit hibouhome.com for the swans, clouds and stars, all designed and made in England.

To add even more magic then try applying some removable wall stickers in glitter stars from Little Cloud Kids, they come in gold or silver (and it’s fine to mix metallics too!)

We’re hoping to be moving house in 4 weeks, but we’ve used these in Willa’s existing room, and they are so easy to use and position. They add just the right amount of sparkle and we’ve used them on white walls- it’s still easy to get a magic look with white. In the next house I’ll be taking all these items but I’ll be painting the walls muted blush.

The essential accessory to any magical kidsroom is a canopy, and ours is the grey colourway from Numero74 which you can find at Molly Meg in lots of colour options along with loads of coordinating items. We have a few of the star cushions which come in different colours and textures which we’ve placed with our silver moon cushion by Marjorie Minnie.

Pinterest is a huge source of inspiration and I’ve started to collate a board with some of my favourite images- a few of which are below. You’ll find our Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/velveteenbabies1 where we have lots of kidsroom inspiration and also pictures of our products that you can pin to your boards.

There’s another few components shown to creating a successful kidsroom with a magical feel. Lighting is crucial. Find wire fairy lights and wrap around a cloud or moon shape to create your own, or Cox&Cox have a star shape ready lit.

Mrs Mighetto prints are the perfect partner too and are made in limited editions each season. Ours are AW 2016 which had a circus identity, but this season the collection is based around nature. Our current favourite is Miss Alice. We’ve framed ours in grey wood, but they look incredible in eclectic vintage frames or on a wooden print hanger. We also love the monochrome prints from Ella and the Roo which are really beautiful- no need to stick to the rules- a wall covered in tonal prints in different styles can look incredible if you are brave.

.Bunting from Numero 74 is easy to string up and gives an extra dimension to prints and wallspace, and our garlands are such an easy way to add another dimension to a magical space.

Adding detail- use wire lights to add sparkle, cushions to add texture, star bunting and canopy from Numero74,

Textiles and texture lend a luxe feel to any children’s room, so look for a bed cover in velvet or linen in muted shades. Cammomile London have a few beautiful styles and then pile cushions on top- moons, stars, and tassel detail work perfectly. Work with a few different colours otherwise it might feel flat, or inject some metallics if you do, it’ll lift a scheme easily.

Finally, add some accessories with a nod to the feel- perhaps a row of glistening crowns on a shelf, or a vintage vase filled with fairy wands. Molly Meg has such a beautiful selection, and you’ll find the prettiest crowns from Fable Heart, including sweet toy size ones.

Our Mr Moon decoration is a gorgeous easy addition to a canopy or wall, and we adore this moon coverlet from Amayadeeme.

I have such a lovely time creating custom mobiles so I thought I’d share some photos of them with you. 

This is my classic cloud and droplet mobile, but I’ve customised the little rainbow in order to match my customer’s nursery bedding. It’s very pretty and feminine.

The next mobile is a contemporary look, and has a clean modern approach. It’s based on my mouse garland (which is usually black and white) we’ve softened it by using greys and whites, and I’ve used white cord instead of ribbon to make it as contemporary as possible.

 I created a very special custom order in beiges, blush pinks and golds. 

I also made the ombrè garland to go with it, and match in the colours. I adore how the colours have worked so well together.
