Nursery Tour: CBenn's Bold Red Nursery

Location: Melbourne, Australia Baby: Audrey, due this month

Strong, yet soft. Cbenn strikes a beautiful balance in this nursery created for baby Audrey (we don't know if she has arrived yet!). She explains:

The leather armchair was from a local department store. Cushion cover and rug from Ikea...The picture on the wall is a vintage Babar print from 1933 - just needed to be framed. Bedlinen is from Pottery Barn Kids in the United States, except the crib skirt, which I made myself.

Picked up the change table second-hand for a bargain on Ebay (oh, how I love Ebay-ing). This was painted the same red as the chest of drawers. The shelving unit is from Ikea (did I mention I also love Ikea-ing?).

Vintage "Babar" print from 1933. Picked up at an antiques home show last year as a pair with another similar print.

The chest of drawers belonged to my sister. It was just ordinary pine with a light varnish over the top of it, but we stripped it back and painted it that gorgeous red. Also put new knobs on the drawers to match the room decor. Love the letters on the wall - these were purchased from a craft shop and then painted.

The crib was kindly donated by a lovely family member!

A close-up of the mobile that hangs above the crib. Butterflies seemed a nice girly option, without going too over the top.

Thanks for sharing, Cbenn!
