Take a peek into Arthur's room for some ideas...

Ah, nurseries. Before the babies arrive we have visions of an immaculate oasis of white wood and limited-edition prints, wooden toys and vintage books. But when time, money and space are more precious than a good parking space at the retail park, it doesn’t often work out like that.

What we are not lacking, however, is inspiration. And we are lucky there are people out there who do a brilliant job of nursery interiors and who are happy to share their images.

And so, to kick it all off, we have Arthur’s Room, as designed by Lisa at Born + Bred Studio.

Arthur's mum wanted to inject some fun into her little boy’s room. It was also important to her that Lisa used a gender-neutral colour scheme with no sight of baby blue.

Lisa found some fun jaunty wallpaper from Ferm Living which set the tone for the room, and enough bright books and artwork to create an ever-changing reading corner and artwork wall.

Ikea had great shelves for the book collection, and it also stocked American college-style storage lockers for clothes and toys which, while they are blue, are not BABY blue so they’re allowed!

The unusual stag lighting is from Urban Outfitters (who says nurseries need exclusively nursery items?), and the wooden toy bus from Habitat is beautiful as well as being fun to play with.

Lucky Arthur!
