decking out the nursery part I

Turning our second bedroom/study into a quasi nursery has got me thinking about how I want to deck it out. We're not going to paint, it's already painted Dulux 'Antique White USA' so it's a blank canvas for us to add finishes and textures - a rug, Eames hang-it-all, shelving...

Not sure about the eames rocker, in red or white? Fibreglass or plastic? Plastic (replica) is much cheaper. What do you think?

  1. looks like a gorgeous combo.. especially with the artwork tying it together. what's funny is that the eames hang it all is on my list too. i have a rocker & the mini nyc set (little ones love it, but you'll have to put it up high when your little one goes through their put-everything-in-your-mouth phase). i especially love the giraffe print :)

  2. this room will look great, i like the rocker in red, i opt for white - you know that 'safe choice' which goes through your mind when buying furniture.

  3. I love it all. I'd get the rocker in white too. We have it in a weird limey green, which we love. Such an awesome chair. And i love the eames hang it all too. It's going to be an awesome nursery x
