Room Tour: Eulalie's Nursery


Finally, Eulalie's room is finished. I'm thrilled with how it turned out! It's certainly evolved over time. It all started with the distressed green cabinet that I stumbled upon at the Bower in Marrickville (one of my favourite rummaging spots) before I was even pregnant. When I saw it, I instantly pictured it in a child's room. Our child's room. That green was so right.

I didn't really 'theme' her room as such, just filled it with things that I love, things that I hope she will love too. I think it all came together nicely and I can see that it will grow with her.

Paddy has been a huge help... he's been so patient hanging pictures (then rehanging pictures "just 2 centimeters to the right"), hanging shelves, hanging canopies and especially hanging branches. He's very good at hanging branches. It's like the Hanging Branches of Babylon in this place.

My favourite thing? The cot. It was made for me by my Grandad when I was a baby. It's so beautiful that she now gets to sleep in it too!

Her favourite thing? The wall stickers - particularly trying to scratch them off the wall while I'm changing her! Hmph.

Our favourite thing? Cuddly feeds and reading stories on the floor cushions. It's so lovely under the window with the light pouring through in the afternoons.

  1. I am so glad I stayed up late to be the first to see Lalie's room, ha. It is absolutely GORGEOUS. Nothing like what I've seen before. Her nursery is so unique and each object fits so perfectly well. Big bravo to you and Paddy for putting together such a lovely room for Lalie! Now, most importantly, when are you coming to Paris to revamp my place?

  7. so magical and pretty. i love the sunshine pouring in - our nursery faces the east in the morning so i hope to take advantage of the early mornings in there. love how you brought the outdoors in with the little tree and ceramic animals, along with the use of the branches - how you attached her little shoes to them is just too much. thank you for sharing how a white-washed room can be anything but boring. more rooms please!

  9. p.s. we too had a beautiful mosquito net around piper's cot, until she figured out how to pull it into the cot and wrap herself up with it, alas, one day it will be back, when she is old enough to see it's beauty!... x

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Ashley, thanks so much :) The knobs aren't anthropologie, much cheaper from a Balinese/Indian import store here called 'Loot'. x

  11. Oh. My. Goodness!
    Claire, her room is stunning! It is so quaint and I love the subtle details in every corner of her room. Love the floating wooden clothes hanger. Love the carpenteria palm branches. Love the handmade cot. Love it all!

  12. That is just the most beautiful nursery I have ever seen! Absolutely amazing Claire. The branch and suitcases are such a clever touch too.

  13. That is just SO beautiful. Amazing. AMAZING! How clever you are. I'm just going to keep coming over to have a look throughout the day if that's alright by you?!

  14. Claire - I'm so jealous of your beautiful house, and this room is just beautiful. I love it - and love you've avoided that "nursery look" and made it so personal and unique. I'm trying to do ours now, and let's just say it's not going to look as good as this.
    Question - I too am wanting to put a change mat on a normal dresser (rather than buy a "change table"), do you find it works fine for you? Does it slip around?

  23. Jeez I'm suddenly feeling incredibly embarrassed that I've ever posted photos of our crappy version of a kids bedroom! This is unbelievable. The loveliest, most beautiful, dreamy nursery I've EVER SEEN. You should be an interiors stylist instead. Kellie xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks everyone, you're too sweet :) x

    Kristi - the little 'tree' is actually just part of a palm frond/seed thingy that I found on the driveway. It had been driven over about a zillion times and had flattened out to make a perfect mini tree! Nothing fancy! x

    ReplyDelete
  25. ah-mazing! I love love it! I just emailed about the camel....I need one for my little lady! Totally in love!

  32. Oh me oh my, Claire! It is 100% beautiful. I know I always tend to lean towards more of a scandi-style, but this is just blow-me-away gorgeous! The colours, the lights, the little quirky details! Wow, you must be so proud. I can definitely see this in an interior style book. Well done :) x

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's spectacular! I just want to curl up on those floor cushions and take a nap in the dappled sunlight.. it has a beautiful tranquil feel and I agree it will grow with her beautifully.

    Love the history of the cot.

  43. It's really gorgeous. So lovely. And the cot is beautiful, my grandpa made Matilda's big girl bed for me when I was a kid, and it feels so special to be able to keep something like that and use it for another generation. The bed in our spare room was also made by my grandpa for him and my grandma. Love.

    And i really love the little cushion corner, too cute.

  53. That is without a doubt the most beautiful nursery I have ever seen. Having floor cushions instead of a chair is lovely, really unusual but just so nice and snuggly. So many gorgeous and personal little touches. The cot is beyond stunning, how lucky you are to have something made with such obvious love to share with her x

  58. Wow Claire, Lalie's room is amazing. So much love, care and attention has been paid to this space. You should be truly proud of yourself. I think your grandpa's cot is one of my favourite things in the whole room.
    I too love a hanging branch. I asked Dave to do a similar thing a few months ago and he looked at me like I was crazy. So Dave, suck on this!

    This is so beautiful. I'm from India and during my last trip I picked up the same elephant pillow cases in 4 different colors. They're so pretty. Everything in Eulaipe's room is gorgeous. I was wondering how you hung that branch for clothes? How far from the wall?
