So with a new baby comes a new room. My taste and style have certainly changed since I last decorated a baby’s room. I have few challenges this time around; we will be renting, we are moving soon, it will be a shared room with a 10 year old girl, don’t know (yet) if this baby is a boy or a girl, I don’t want to buy much new – hoping to up-cycle a lot.
One thing I have my heart set on, is a Jenny Lind Cot, this simple spindle style cot is a classic. They are really hard to get in Australia. not a flash cot, only $200 in the US, but getting them here is near impossible, unless your willing pay 5 times the price on eBay.

I love these light, white rooms, with simple colour thrown in.

One of my favourites, I adore the room below. The mis-matched styling is perfect and colours are pretty cute as well.

Seeing as this is a shared room, I have to keep Molly in mind. I have shown her my Pinterest board and she is generally happy with the feel for ‘their’ new room. I have let her choose her new quilt cover (from my short-list) as of course this will provide a huge part of the rooms overall look/feel. It also guide the rooms colours, though I won’t have a strict colour theme as such, I’d like the room to have a bit of a mis-matched, vintage feel. It will be colourful, with a strong white base.
