b'alternative solutionsoftly does ita nursery that grows with your childDesigners Emma Adkins and Georgia Hay suggestthis alternative scheme:Our key design tip to transform a spare bedroom into a timeless nursery is to retain a subtle classic influence with a pared-back colour palette as a base accented with saturated colours through easily replaced dcor and accessories. Rather than creating a stereotypical feature wall, we have introduced a dado line and selected a youthful yet sophisticated wallpaper, Resene Wallpaper Collection SMIL69819001, combined with the subtle tone of Resene Blanched Pink and accessorised with burnt orange. Running curtain fabric from floor to ceiling is a commonly-used designer secret to visually increase window heights and create the illusion of a bigger space. By staining the floor in Resene Colorwood Touch Wood, we have created harmony between the warm oak furnishings and the cool grey tones found within the wallpaper design. To finalise the space, we have softened it by adding texture and tactility through a chunky woollen rug and a unique handmade felt pendant lamp.phone 09 869 8048 web www.sampleworkshop.co.nzResene Island SpiceEvie Rocking ChairFreedom Furniture www.freedomfurniture.co.nz0800 469 327 Resene Wallpaper Collection SMIL69819001Resene ColorShops www.resene.com/colorshops 0800 737 363 or 1800 783 383Chester Linen Cushion Cover Resene Colorwood Touch WoodCittwww.cittadesign.com09 630 6177Muskhane Felt Lamp Shade Tea Pea Homebefore Above: Emma and Georgias design combines the beauty ofillustrationwww.teapea.co.nz MacKenzie Rug in White Strawsimplicity with plenty of attention to details like texture andMalcolm White 04 499 4743 FurtexResenewww.furtex.co.nzcolour for a restful looking nursery full of warmth.
