Coco’s Nursery

With just a week to go until Coco’s due date is here, I thought I’d post some pictures of Coco’s nursery right now. 

I’m so happy with how it has turned out; it’s neutral but colourful, and I cannot wait until Coco is here so we can add some prints and personality to his or her room. 

This is our nursing corner. The wingback chair is courtesy of IKEA and Mr A has very kindly offered to turn it into a rocking chair (if I so desire – I’m not sure yet!). 

This is Coco’s crib featuring our gender neutral rainbow felt ball mobile! I absolutely LOVE it! It pops and spins in the wind when the window is open, and the colours pop against our navy feature wall. Coco likely won’t be in the crib for a little while, as he or she will be in a bassinet in our bedroom to begin with. 

This is our change station, which is actually in a walk in wardrobe. It features our DIY sewn cloth wipes, and minky / PUL changemat cover. In the drawers are our various cloth nappies that we’re using for Coco. 

It’s the cosiest space, and all we need is a new light for the room, plus a throw for the nursing chair in case we get cold. 

My maternity leave has now commenced and I’ve gotten so much done on my nesting list which feels great; cupboards are organised, clothes are washed and folded, oven is cleaned (yes, bizarre nesting craving!) and lots of meals and snacks have been cooked and frozen in preparation .. so now, we wait! <3

Finito! – Fox Cross Stitch Cushion

Just a little update on the fox cross stitch I finished for Coco the other week. Here it is in all it’s glory in Coco’s nursery :)

I backed the cushion with a metallic grey chevron fabric to match the grey walls, and grey nursing chair of Coco’s room. I also bound the cushion with a grey floral fabric, and I absolutely love how it turned out. The final cushion dimensions was 15″ x 15″, and I added a 16″ cushion insert just to give the cushion a little roundness.

I always buy my inserts 1 size bigger than the final size to make sure the cushion has Β a bit of firmness, as I personally find this a lot more comfortable than a cushion which has a lot of space in it still.

It’s only 3 weeks until Coco’s due date is upon us, and it spins me out to think he or she will be here with us so soon – we can’t wait for our bundle of love to be in our arms!
