We all have them… those stunning friends with impeccable taste, who’s awesome little one’s could put North West or Cruz Beckham to shame. And the nurseries and playrooms belonging to these lucky offspring are always STUNNING! My beautiful friend Angela, with the help of her handy hubby Ant and little mister Oli, have created this awesome monochrome big boy’s room and been wonderful enough to share it with us!
Ang, how would you describe your styling choice for Oli’s Room?
It started with me just wanting to create a retreat for Oli…. not just somewhere for sleep but play as well, his own little room. It’s quite fresh, a little edgy and timeless… something he’ll (hopefully) still love for years to come. Although knowing me, I’ll want to change it up before that! Apart from the monochrome trend in the room, we wanted to fill it with encouraging quotes and travel inspiration, something that we’ve loved sharing as a family.
What’s your favourite piece in the room?
The bed! We bought it second hand for just $50!!! Was originally bright pink but became a labour of love as Ant and I made it work together. And I just love how it’s all come together style wise. The quilt (made by Oli’s Oona) and lightning bolt cushion (handmade by me) have sentimental value and I’m so happy with the results.
What design rule would you swear by when creating a new room?
Timeless! Especially for a kid’s room, stick to things they won’t grow out of in two years.
What was your splurge buy for this room?
Table and chairs! They’re replica Eames and I completely went all out on them!
Being a beautifully stylish mumma, who do you recommend following on Instagram?
Oh wow, where do I start!? So so many…. this list might be quite long.
