Favorite other nursery from the contest:
'Josephs lantern festival' I liked the lanterns and artwork a lot and the fact that the lanterns were the colorful inspiration for the rest of the room. I also relate to starting with things that are special to you and let the room grow while the child reveals itself to you. I loved how the things from their own childhood, like the nursing chair from the mom's nursery and their own toys were incorperated in the room. To me it has a nice natural balance between style and personality.

What's next on your nursery to-do list?
We want to make a long playtable for her along the white wall with storage space above it for her toys and draw & craft stuff. I've got 3 old small cupboards in roughly the same size, but different styles, which I want to paint in one colour and hang next to each other above the new playtable. The changing table will have to go then!
