A nursery isn’t just a nicely decorated room for a baby to sleep and play in. It’s a sacred space that a mother dreams about from the earliest moments of deciding they want children. For me, that was the case anyway! Rewind four years I couldn’t of imagined I would have been blessed with Ethan Rae so soon, I hadn’t even met Craig yet. BUT I had been manifesting that little rockstar in my minds eye for at least 15 years. I always knew I wanted to be a mother but no one can truly explain how amazing yet overwelming it can be at times.
I wanted his nursery to be something completely unique and inspiring for the whole family to enjoy, find solitude and wind down in. I didn’t want it to be too bright but I wanted his mind to feel inspired to play and create.
There’s something very special about the ocean for me. It’s the place I go to when I need to refuel, rest and recover from life’s struggles. It’s also the place I feel truly myself and connected to the earth.
I know the next time I decorate the baby’s room it will be a toddlers bedroom and Ethan will be telling me what theme he would like, and I can’t wait! To be able to take his idea and make it into something magical for him. I knew this time around I could choose what ever theme I wanted (as he couldn’t help me decide) and it was always going to be an ocean themed room.
I worked with a couple of amazing brands on a gifting basis for Ethan’s ocean themed nursery and I’ll mention who they are as I go along below.
