Masons room is not only my favourite room in the house but also where I spend the most time. I originally thought I wanted a very modern nursery but as I started searching for furniture I noticed that I was gravitating towards more traditional items.
I wanted a room that felt warm, cosy and comfortable. We knew the sex of our baby so we didn’t need to worry about it being gender neutral however I did pick items that could easily be used again for baby number two (or 3, what a scary thought!). I stuck to my favourite colour platte of grey and white and then added a splash of colour, mainly baby blue and green.
I actually started buying everything before we moved into our new home so it was a little tricky trying to imagine how everything was going to look once it all came together. I definitely didn’t want to wait till I was 8 months pregnant before I started shopping so the weekend we moved in I crossed my fingers as we were unpacking and hoped everything fit.
Everyone we spoke to would tell us to wait till the baby arrived before buying anything or setting up the room but I know myself and I like to have everything organised and ready. In hindsight I’m so glad we didn’t attempt it after Mason was born because I struggled to choose what I wanted to eat let alone having to choose furniture to buy. We use his room so much from day one and I loved having all his things organised, easy to reach and not strewn across the house.
