Hello there, so lovely of you to stop by.
I’m super excited to share this post with you, Esme’s nursery is complete and I could not be happier with the finished look and feel of it, it’s already my favourite place to be. When I showed the final look on Instagram, the response was incredible, you guys love it just as much as I do and like me, so many of you where super surprised the Pottery Barn Kids is now available in the UK, if that isn’t the most exciting news ever, I don’t know what is!
When deciding on a theme for my little ones room, it seemed like I was going round in circles. I was going from one mood board to another, my eyes hurting from hours of Pintrest scrolling. I didn’t have a clue where to start, I had no clear vision of how I wanted it to be.
I couldn’t quite decide, (possibly due to those pregnancy hormones), so I took a step back. I stopped looking on Pinterest and I scrapped my mood board, it was too messy. I focused on what was important to us. I thought about a feel rather than a look! It was important that this room worked for all the family, it had to be practical and comfortable.
I wanted somewhere I could nurse Esme whilst Alfie played, a place where she will grow from a baby to a toddler, somewhere welcoming but an enclosed little sanctuary. It had to be light and airy, pretty and timeless. Once Esme arrived all those little things just clicked, creating her room became much clearer once she was in my arms.
Having a comfortable place to nurse was essential. I didn’t invest in a nursing chair first time round. After spending so many weeks when Alfie was born, weighing up the pros and cons, I wasn’t sure how long our breast feeding journey would last therefore I wasn’t sure how long I would use the chair for! FYI, you do not need to be breastfeeding to enjoy the comfort of a nursing chair.
Our nursing chair is our happy place. We nurse, rest, fall asleep here. It’s a place far from distractions and a chance to just breathe. This glider and recliner chair provides the ultimate support when nursing, it’s cleverly designed with a nursing Mother’s needs in mind. I’ve also noticed a positive difference in my posture when nursing in a comfortable position, something I’ve been cautious of since feeding Alfie. The long and short, if you’re thinking of getting a chair, do it, go for it, I promise you won’t regret it, this one is an absolute dream!
I’m so happy with how this room has come together, it’s beautiful yet functional. The open storage space allows quick and easy access to things that we may need, a cosy blanket or an extra pillow, it’s right there within arms reach.
I can’t help but smile when I walk into this room. It’s where so many little milestones will take place, sleeping on her own for the first time, taking her first steps, moving from cot to toddler bed, it’s where she’ll grow up however for now it’s where we’ll both be, right here in our happy place.
Thanks for stopping by.
See you again soon, all my love, Emma x
