feather the nest: a blog

Room tour: Ellia's Room August 21 2014, 0 Comments

We read a fair few blogs here at feather the nest, and in the past have shared some of our discoveries over at Mini Style Blog.  So when we came across a feature of little Ellia's room, we knew that it was another room tour that we had to share.  Ellia's clever mama is Natalie of Glitter and the Girls fame and her styling of Ellia's room is simply beautiful.  Here is a sneak peak, but head over here to to see more.  We particularly love the gallery wall and bedding!  Thanks so much for sharing Ellia's room Natalie - you are one talented mama!  xx

Inspiration board: Accents of orange April 01 2014, 0 Comments

Whilst we love lots of white and neutrals here at feather the nest, there is something refreshing about accents of colour peppered in with those neutrals, particularly in kids' bedrooms.  Lately we're loving the hints of orange that are coming through.  Here are a few of our favourites (all links are in images) x
   
We LOVE this rug...
   
  
   
And this teepee... who wouldn't want to crawl right in there?
   
  
   
We love this mural too...
   
 
     
 These cushions add just the right amount of colour to this older kid's bedroom... 
    
 
   
And how can you go past a bright orange Eero Aarnio puppy?  
   

Inspiration: Nicolas' bedroom March 03 2014, 0 Comments

We read a fair few blogs here at feather the nest and one of our all time favourites is Mini Style Blog, a collection of beautiful products, stylish DIY ideas and photos of inspirational nurseries.  They recently featured the playful and colour laden room of Nicolas.  We particularly love how 'real' this room is, which is refreshing in a world of immaculate and very perfect Pinterest photos!  Thanks for sharing your little boy's room Katia.  We think it's gorgeous.  See the feature on Mini Style Blog here - http://www.ministyleblog.com/blog/nicolas-room-tour2722014

Inspiration: A beautiful nursery for a new arrival... February 13 2014, 0 Comments

One of the best things about social media is it's ability to introduce you to new products, people and blogs.  We came across this gorgeous nursery this morning and thought that you'd all agree that it was one of the most beautiful spaces we've seen in a long time.  Emma, at Beau Monde Mama, is based in New Zealand and has kindly provided notes on where she sourced all of the items she's used.  We love the peachy tones and we're pretty impressed with the news that Emma created the feature wall in this room herself!

 

See Emma's blog for more photos and more lifestyle, fashion and beauty, DIY and baby inspiration!  
Thanks for sharing your little girl's new room Emma - we think you've done an incredible job.

Their gorgeous blankets and cushions would make the perfect addition to any nursery or playroom.
