New Year is Here! Are you ready for your New Arrival? 5 Beautiful Nursery Ideas from Murals Wallpaper

So Christmas is nearly here and before you know it January will be knocking on the door. Now that New Year is round the corner the birth of your little bundle of joy is suddenly looking a lot closer. You have dreamed about the pram, picked out a few sleep suits and got the all important first stuffed bear. But the nursery? Oh you have thought about it but nothing quite lives up to all you dream of. You want a perfect room, a beautifully neutral space to enjoy with your new arrival. Somewhere to sit and feed, cosy but uncluttered. A space for everything and everything in its place.

So for your planning pleasure I have teamed up with Murals Wallpaper to bring you 5 beautiful nursery ideas.

Starry Night

Gorgeously neutral and chic, this simple theme of grey and white creates the perfect place for your new arrival to catch those needed zzzzs. I love the mixture of stars and hearts. Teamed with simple white furniture the Mural Wallpaper creates a modern nursery that will grow with your baby.

Cloud Illusions

A pale pallet of soft pinks and blues, keeps this nursery beautifully neutral. Simplistic cloud patterns will brighten even those dull grey February days, leaving you calm and relaxed. Again crisp white furniture helps bring this Murals Wallpaper alive – keeping the room feeling fresh and inviting.

Tweet Dreams

Know you are expecting a special little lady? This stunning woodland design complete with birds and owls is perfect. Elegant and fun with lots of things for little ones to look at as they grow up. This paper creates a brilliant nursery and captures imaginations as babies grow. A few girly accessories and some cute bunting will set this Mural Wallpaper off wonderfully.

All the Leaves Are

Another more feminine idea with this stunning leaf drop paper. Beautifully colourful yet subtle. A quirky pattern that will remind you of all the seasons. This Murals Wallpaper is right on trend, but trendy doesn’t have to mean uncomfortable like those pre-pregnancy shoes you craved! This nursery gives off a warm glow, a cosy feeling of nights spent curled up with baby. The pattern has so much going on that a just a few accessories are all that is needed to complete the look.

Nordic Nuance

Ah have you been dreaming of those clear cut nordic lines in your nursery? Its understandable but sometimes minimalistic can feel a little cold. This paper from Murals Wallpaper brings the gorgeous nordic colours and prints with a twist of cute fun. Clean and bright this nursery is perfect for baby boys and growing boys.

Boutiques in Focus – July

You just can’t beat finding that special something for your little one. The hight street stores have some great items but if you want something special there are some fantastic places online. So following on from our June boutique round-up I have decided to make a monthly boutique-feature! There are so many fantastic boutiques run by mumpreneurs out there it would be a crime not to highlight our favourites. I wish I had loads of money to frequent all of them, but this month I have again picked three that I just love.

Love Roo

Oh my who doesn’t love tiny baby shoes? What could be better than funky, handmade baby shoes! Love Roo was created by Aimee after her first child and all her shoes are handmade by her. What a clever Mama. These little shoes with tiny arrows on are my personal favourite.


They are good to go with almost any outfit. But the turquoise panda shoes are a definite statement and I love those too.


At around £14 a pair and sizes up to 24 months they won’t break the bank either!


Fox and The Bear

Handmade and cute! This sums up the fabulous range from Fox and The Bear. A fabulous boutique store owned and sewn by mum Samantha. The fabrics of the designs are great, I love the patterns and colours. These little leggings covered in clouds are bright and cheerful for those rainy days.


But for me I love the accessories, headbands and bibs can really make an outfit. This headband with clouds to match those fabulous leggings is my absolute favourite.


The bandana bib with elephants it also a personal fave!


Starting at £5 for a bib or headband and around £12 for a pair of leggings, you can’t ask fairer than that for quality handmade garments.


Mini Maison

Looking for some different items for your child’s nursery? Look no further! Mini Maison has a great range of products that you see online but can never seem to find. Whether it’s a funky nightlight like this:


Or some great alternative Milestone Cards.


Personally I have my eyes on the DIY lightbox!


Definitely worth checking out the whole range, loads of quirky items to brighten up any small persons room.

So that is the July round-up – hope you like our choices! Have you got any suggestions? Or are you a boutique who would like to be featured? Let us know!
