Lulus rooms - the details..
I didn't really have a theme in mind when I started decorating Luella's room just that I want it to be pretty and girly without being to babyish and absolutely no Winnie the pooh, dora etc motifs would enter the room.. I looked around the Internet at lots of art prints but nothing really grabbed me until I came across them Nomuu and I knew straight away I had found what I was looking for- they such beautiful illustrations , will grow with Luella and are really reasonably priced.. and the lady behind Nomuu happens to also be Simone - meant to be surely.. I have just noticed some abstract art on the Nomuu website that I may just have to break my shopping ban for ..
I blogged about the animal print shop here and I decided that I would have it framed professionally-, and the very lovely man who did this announced proudly to me when I arrived to pick it up that he had used the black border on the inside of the Matte to make the zebra 'pop' more..favour hmm I am not so sure.. I really would have preferred it without but I just couldn't ask to have it re-done especially after he told me ' it cost twice the price but I knew I had to do it love' It hangs above the change table for now.
The little cushion I made late one night during a bout of pregnancy insomnia from a piece of linen and some scrap fabric..
I always wanted a chair for feeding and somewhere to spend some quiet time, looking around the shops it is really not possible to find a nice armchair for under $1000 , so I was rather pleased to pick this one up from my local op-shop and one the Vintage Shed stallholders who happens to be an upholsterer did a beautiful job re-covering it.The fabric I found at wholesale warehouse for $10 a metre..if anybody would like either Dave's number or the warehouse address you can email me and I can pass on the details..
Also above the Ginger Jar lamp is a $4 op shop find
Little teddy- $2 op shop find that I just couldn't leave behind
The cushion is one of a pair I have had for many years
The chevron blanket was a beautiful gift from my old Vintage Girl friend Bec at Little Flea ..
The blanket box I picked up for $55 at the Vintage Shed it was originally brown and I painted grey which turned out to be a little bit blue.

The little chalkboard I painted from an old clipboard and took the little quote of the Internet and transferred onto using this technique here..
The cute framed clouds print is fromMiddle of Nowhere art , purchased at Robert Gordon.
The little wooden house is a couple of wood offcuts I was given painted very hastily made to look like a house..
I knew I wanted to hang a mirror above the chest of drawers ( we already had the drawers) but couldn't find the size and style that i wanted so I went to a framers chose the style that I wanted and they made it to my specifications..
The bunting is paper- sewn by me..
The Bunny is a gift from my Mum
Paper flower made from Vintage sewing pattern paper from Conor's school fete..
Apart from the above the cot was from Toys R Us and a friends husband sprayed it white for me- it reminded me of this designer version but for about 1/4 of the price.
