We are thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with Billie Faiers from itvBe's "The Mummy Diaries". We had the pleasure of re-designing and re-decorating Nelly, Billie's 6 year old daughter's bedroom. Nelly's room had not been updated since she was a baby, so we brought the room up to date, adding an Arts & Crafts Corner, a Snug and reworked all of her storage to suit a 6 year old's needs!

We painted the room in "Gauzy Calico" by Valspar as Nelly's favourite colour is Pale Blue! We created a statement wall with a custom Wallpaper designed by The Modern Nursery with our resident Wallpaper brand Munks & Me. We called it "The Nelly"  and it is available exclusively at The Modern Nursery.

We teamed this with complementary hues such a powder greys and bluey greens, in the canopy and soft furnishings.

We created three zones in the room including the Arts & Crafts Corner, the Snug and Sleep. 

Arts & Crafts

This was top of the Brief for Billie. Now that Nelly is 6, she doesn't really play with toys as much anymore, what she really loves to do is crafts, colouring and being creative! We also wanted to create a destination for her to do her homework. 
We used a white desk, with a handy drawer for storage; a beautiful piece of Furniture by danish brand Sebra. We then teamed this with our Pegboard and Olli Ella craft roll. Our Pegboards are ideal for storing craft materials: stickers, pens, pencils, craft scissors, ribbons, pom poms and more! 
We used Jars from Hobby Craft and IDesign Storage bins from John Lewis and our Liewood Stationary holders to store pencils, pens and materials.

In addition to the Desk, we added The Oliver Furniture Storage unit with drawers  to store more bulky crafts such as Aqua beads, nicely tidied away and organised! We also used this as a wall feature, displaying the Olli Ella Holdie House and Mushroom Basket as well as using more storage baskets by danish brand Bloomingville for soft toys and blankets.

The Snug

Nelly has a TV in her room, one of our tasks was to put it up on the wall, and then create a Snug for her to chill out in and watch tv. We created a cosy corner (every kids dream!) with spanish brand Nobodinoz Playmats, Bean Bag and cushions!
For the finishing touch, we accessorised the corner with Meri Meri soft toy cushions: a Narwhal,  Seahorse  and a Pegasus!
We added two Cam Cam Copenhagen Harlequin Shelves above which are perfect for books. They are really deep and have the front border so books are kept safely inside and can't fall off the shelves. We also used the matching Harlequin Bedside Table on the other side of the bed.
