Newborn photographer Fareham helping you choosing an amazing style for your nursery….
When I moved to my larger studio in the beautiful Cams Hall in March 2020, I was constantly looking online for ideas for furniture and props to fill my new studio. I wanted the colour scheme to complement my business branding colours and also create a cosy but professional ambience. With being in lockdown, it gave me lots of time to research and design my layout. Almost one year has gone by, and I just love the way my new studio looks now. It’s amazing how quickly you can fill a space. How on earth did I manage with my smaller studio? Whatever space we have, we always fill it with stuff!
I’m sure that while you’re in lockdown right now, being pregnant you are taking the time to plan your precious little one’s nursery. It’s so exciting planning your baby’s nursery; choosing a special theme, the right colours, and all the tiny details. Even though your baby probably won’t sleep in their own room for a few months, there’s something quite special about getting the nursery finished before your baby is born with all the tiny little details.
There are so many amazing theme ideas on the internet, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourites.
Quite a few first-time parents choose not to find out the gender of their baby and leave it as a surprise. To be fair, there aren’t many surprises in life, so it must be such an amazing feeling finding out whether you’ve had a little boy or a girl after a long labour. I just love the simplicity of this white studio; it’s such a great gender-neutral style. You could always add a splash of colour once you know if it’s a boy or girl. Or even, change your nursery colours when you have a second baby of a different sex.
This is such an adorable woodland nursery theme, with some cute little animals included in the pattern. It has a feel of getting back to nature and is such a great nursery theme for both boys and girls.
Before parents come to my lovely newborn photography studio, I get them to choose their colour scheme for the photo session. One of my colour scheme options is ‘jungle brown’; inspired by little Cassidy who came to meet me in the studio
Winnie the Pooh
Who doesn’t love the adorable Winnie the Pooh of Hundred Acre Wood? I absolutely love the simplicity of the hand drawn wall art, and the gorgeous subtle tones against a grey/white background. I quite often use Winnie the Pooh quotes in my social media posts too.
“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart”
Piglet: “How do you spell love? Pooh: You don’t spell it, you feel it”
Colours of the Rainbow
Occasionally, I will have parents who come to the studio and have had a difficult time on their pregnancy journey, whether it be through sadly having miscarriages, failed IVF or even a stillbirth. I always provide a special gift for parents of a treasured rainbow baby. A rainbow baby is a baby born after a miscarriage or stillborn. “It’s the rainbow after the storm”
Big Print Floral
When I found this nursery design, I know that if I was having a little girl, I would have loved a nursery theme just like this. So pretty, stylish and a little bit different too. However, I would have to rethink my design ideas if I was having a boy!
This one is a great idea for the boys; it has a bit of a jungle feel to it, but it also has a bold feature wall. I really love the connection it has, and with a jungle feel as well.
Now this one may not strictly be a nursery theme, but I loved this design, so I just felt I had to share it. The floral design is by a London designer who specialises in children’s bedroom design. I love the fresh spring feel to this room and what a cool den for a child it would be! I love the wallpaper and wall art used in this design by Mrs Mighetto.
These are a great way to add a lovely image to your little one’s room without having to invest in an expensive redecoration job. You could either add a lovely nursery sticker to your wall – or simply paint your wall a plain colour and add a sticker to it. There are lots of DIY shops and specialist designers who sell nursery stickers such as this gorgeously cute animal nursery design.
