During my lovely pregnancy days I started making plans for Maya’s nursery. I figured I’d have plenty of time to finish it off while she was still little so no need to go crazy before I met her.
Of course, I grossly underestimated how much free time I’d have. I figured, eh… how much can a little baby need in the first few weeks.
Except my baby wanted to feed at all hours of the day and night, leaving me just enough time to get some sleep and maybe shower and adorn myself with clean clothes.
Now, a year and a half later with a daughter who luckily let me off every now and then, I’ve finally finished creating her space.
Thanks to Howard Storage World and a little DIY with my paintbrush and sewing machine, Maya has a room fit for a future designer/photographer/superhero/world president.
Even though it took a while it was worth it. C found the beautiful letters for her at Paddington markets in Sydney, and the little shoes hanging on the handle I found in Mumbai India, long before Maya was born.
I asked C to print pictures of our life so that we could tell her funny stories of all our travels. And she absolutely loves looking at them. Every day she proudly names everyone and everything in the photographs.
Some pictures are backed on to foam and others in hand painted Ikea frames. As you can see we love bright colours in our home!
Miss maya also has quite a collection of jewellery already and this beautiful tree from Howard Storage is perfect for all of her little girly things.
I’m a huge believer i displaying your beautiful trinkets instead of hiding them in the cupboard so I created a space on the wall where I hung a few of her special items. The hooks are from Ikea and the white wooden hangers from Howard storage world.
It’s a work in progress and I’m the as she gets older and her needs and tastes develop into her own, I’ll be making many changes.
If you have any cute ideas on what to add to a growing toddler’s room please share, I’d love to be prepared this time!
