We were delighted when Ellie, Hampshire based Interiors and Lifestyle Blogger, agreed to collaborate with us on her daughter’s – Kitty – nursery come young girl’s room. Ellie has a keen eye for creating modern, cosy yet sympathetic spaces. We love the soft muted pinks and whites in Kitty’s newly decorated bedroom – perfect for a little girl growing up!
When Kitty dropped her daytime nap we knew it was ready for her to transition into a toddler bed and we wanted to upgrade her bedroom from a nursery to an elegant, girly space. I wanted to share our experience with Aspace and show exactly why we are such fans of this beautiful British brand.
We carefully considered the furniture in Kitty’s nursery; we wanted furniture that would grow with her. Classic, quality pieces that won’t date and neutral colours to suit any trend as the years go by. The Aspace Charterhouse collection is exactly that, with beautiful pieces from the collection to add too, as Kitty grows into a young lady. We chose the Charterhouse 3+2 chest of drawers and Charterhouse Children’s wardrobe both in ‘Silk White’. The furniture arrived semi assembled and the Aspace team set to work putting the items together (which is a fab additional personal service they offer) into the exact space I wanted them and they took all the packaging away with them! I was so impressed with the craftsmanship of the furniture, it feels solid and sturdy and it has a beautiful soft sheen, which just adds to the quality.
The chest of drawers doubled up perfectly as a changing station with a changing mat placed on top. We used the two smaller drawers for organising nappies, wipes and lotions and the bigger drawers for all Kitty’s clothes. The Charterhouse wardrobe with drawer has ample space for hanging beautiful outfits and extra shelving which are the perfect size for cube baskets to store extra nappies, muslins and towels. The drawer is ideal for storing sheets and blankets. These two pieces are perfect for a nursery but it was time to add some accessories to update Kitty’s nursery into a little girl’s palace.
We chose the peg shelf to hang above the chest of drawers, it’s an absolute must in a child’s bedroom to display little accessories to keep the room uncluttered and neat and add pops of colour. This peg shelf also features bookends, which is really hard to find with shelving and pegs to hang out Kitty’s outfits ready for the next day. Kitty is still only little so the peg shelf is also perfect to keep things out of reach from busy little hands.
We added panelling to the wall behind Kitty’s bed and painted it in a soft dusky pink, which makes the white of her furniture really stand out. Finally, the beautiful Cecelia felt swan head graces the wall above her bed and is a real showstopper. Made with stunning soft felt, with dusky pink detailing and little bells for a touch of sparkle. Kitty’s new bedroom feels elegant and enchanting.
What’s reassuring about choosing furniture from Aspace is that they also offer touch up paint pots for those little knocks so that you can keep your furniture looking as good as new for years to come! All pieces come with a 7 year guarantee and Aspace also offer free colour samples which are perfect for making sure the shade you choose for the furniture matches the décor perfectly! We absolutely adore Aspace children’s furniture and can’t wait to make a start on our son’s bedroom too!
