Viv sent us these photos of the very beautiful nursery she put together for her son. She writes: The room was originally dark and depressing with a black built-in wardrobe and an outdoor light fitting installed (go figure?). My husband and I painted the room white and swapped out the light fitting with something more sensible. The colour inspiration for the room was taken from a toadstool print bought from Etsy. The red colour then flowed from there....

...the red 'circus silhouette' wallpaper by Catherine Martin, the elephant design on the cot sheets, toys and antique chair. Even though we knew we were having a boy we didn't want to create a space that screamed "This is a boy's room!".

The room ties in well with the rest of the house and my son loves looking at the wallpaper print. It's saved me on many an occasion when I can't seem to settle him. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Thanks, Viv!
