Pillow Talk Ep 4: Morris's Woodland Nursery Toursay hello to a new style of nursery that will take you on a magical adventure
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve done a Pillow Talk feature where we interview homeowners about their bedroom designs. Last time we spoke to Swoonworthy blogger Kimberly about her dark and glamorous bedroom – check it out here. This time we’re taking you on an adventure into the magical woodland nursery of baby Morris, created by new parents Lucy & Lee. This room is a nursery to kick all other nurseries out of the park. Say goodbye to those overdone bright coloured Scandi kids rooms with painted triangle mountains. Yes, enter a new nursery style that’s sure to become wildly popular with those wanting to create something more special and unique. This mythical, etherial & cosy room shows you that a nursery doesn’t have to be sterile or gender assigned. Many thanks to Marie Palbom for her beautiful images…
What’s the design process behind the nursery?
Where do you find your inspiration?
What’s your top tip for creating a nursery?
“I painted a blue sky, trees & elves looking down into the room on it as if there was another world through the window in the night sky”
Did you have any other ideas / plans for the room that didn’t happen?
I created a portrait of a fox on black paper and framed it in an old battered, gold antique frame that we had lying around. We hung it on the wall next to the cot...
We were going to buy an antique cot, and when we mentioned it to my Mum, she told us that there was a cot up in her loft we could use. Her father (who was a carpenter) made it when she was born and she slept in it as a baby – as did my sister & I! It’s so lovely to have a piece of family history in the room for Morris to sleep in! (Not that he sleeps in there! My brother in law, who is also a carpenter, made us a lovely bedside cot which is where Morris sleeps for now!)
If you’re just as in love with Lucy, Lee & Morris’s nursery as we are, see the links below to Dippy Egg where you can see more about the family and their business.
