A Nursery To Grow With A Baby Boy

A Nursery To Grow With A Baby Boy

Thrilled about her brand new open plan living space designed by Milray Park Designer Ellie Bradley, Erin decided to keep the good design going! Next destination, her 1-year-old son’s nursery.

Struggling to add the finishing touches to the space for it to feel complete, Erin turned this time to Milray Park Designer Amy Collins Walker (of Interiors Addict) for help.

The room was painted in white, with grey curtains. I already had a brown timber cot and a grey armchair but nothing much else. It felt a bit cold and unfinished.

#1 Baby Arlo’s Nursery

Budget: $500

Brief: Brighten up the room up with accessories while keeping the existing furniture.

I wanted to create a nursery that would reflect my little boy’s cheeky personality, something with some pop of colour! I also wanted something that could grow with him, and wouldn’t be too hard to update here and there as he transitions from cot to bed!

Design Note: “With its white paint, timber curtains and dark timber cot, this room’s existing monochrome palette has been livened up with pops of vibrant green. From the removable wall decals to the fun bed linen, a throw and toy storage, bursts of fun green now pepper the room and has imbued the space with the personality and vibrancy that was missing. I was careful not to make the room feel overly infantile to ensure that Arlo could use it for many years to come.” Milray Park Designer Amy Collins Walker

# Erin’s feedback

It was the second time I had worked with a designer on Milray Park eDecorating platform and trust me it’s quite addictive!

Before moving in, I spent many days and nights browsing the web trying to figure out what I was looking for. My husband and I, also spent quite a few afternoons at the shopping centre thinking it would be so much easier to select furniture if we were to see them in our home first.

Milray Park has just made it so easy to shop for your home!

After having experienced the Milray Park service, now, I would rather pay a $299 flat-fee to get a professional to put together a curated shopping list of items that perfectly matches my vision for the space over doing it myself and end up with a mix and match of furniture I’m half satisfied with!

I am also a great fan of the Shop with Milray Park service. In total, I ended up saving something like $600 on my shopping list and I got to order all my items in one single transaction while my personal shopper took care of placing all my orders and coordinating my deliveries. Too easy!

Happy client Erin
