There are several animal/bird prints and items throughout the room, however there is no fixed theme. I believe so long as I select items I really love, everything will work harmoniously together.

I used colours from beautiful Love Mae ‘Confetti’ Wallpaper as the colour palette and had a felt ball rug and garland custom made to match. I love the 50s aesthetic of the Ubabub Nifty Timber cot & (finally) found the perfect bookcase, bedside table & tallboy (which we use as a change table) which complement the cot's mid-century design and have the added bonus of (safe) rounded edges!

Particular things I love about the room:

  • The colour and pattern of the Love Mae ‘Confetti’ Wallpaper. It makes me smile every time I enter the room.
  • The Ralph Hobbs’ artworks (Flamingo, Masked Owl, Red Robin, Bluebird, Giraffe, & Elephant) from hardtofind. I love the impact created by grouping the bird artworks together and Asher loves to gaze at the black and white giraffe and elephant artworks during nappy changes.
  • Having a gallery hanging system is fantastic; I can display artwork without drilling hooks into the beautiful wallpaper and I’m free to adjust the position of the artwork as desired.
  • The mobile my Mum and I made; lovingly punching and sewing hundreds of circles together to complement the wallpaper whilst creating something visually stimulating.
  • Bits & pieces we gathered during our Buenos Aires 'babymoon' – a Mini Cooper (our surname is Cooper), miniature Spanish children’s books from 1907 and a Wind in the Willows tin suitcase – all from the Feria de San Pedro Telmo vintage markets.
