This week we chatted to Kristy about the gorgeous neutral nursery she created for her little boy, Elliott. You may know Kristy as @my.little.lad on Instagram, where she’s fast becoming known for her beautiful images of her family, life and home, and of course her stunning styling.
Needless to say, we were DYING to see little Elliott’s room and find out a bit about Kristy’s style inspo and how she went about putting together this lovely neutral space…
My background is in accounting but I’m currently a stay-at-home to Milla, 3, and Elliott, who’s nearly 2. I love old houses, pretty gardens and beautiful interiors.
I’d have to say classic with very neutral tones.
To be honest I didn’t really know! I just knew I didn’t want the popular monochrome look or anything that screamed ‘boy’. I started out with a cot that Elliott inherited from his big sister, and a Mrs Mighetto print that I absolutely fell in love with. The rest of the nursery sort of just fell together (very slowly) from there.
I don’t really have one favourite place or shop. I’ve bought a lot of decor items from businesses on Instagram. A few stores I love are @wildberry_art, @natashahallartist, @gigiandiv
The little cube shelving unit with the two cane baskets. I picked this up off eBay for $60. All it needed was a fresh coat of paint. It’s such a solid piece of furniture with a lovely character about it and the baskets are perfect for hiding all those Lamaze toys.
I wish I could say it was an @incyinteriors cot, but already having a cot in perfect condition I couldn’t justify the expense! Instead, I bought a grey buttoned feeding chair from Freedom which blends perfectly with the tones of the nursery.
I’m always finding new additions so it’s a constantly evolving room but when Elliott was around ten months old I felt the room was “finished” (so around ten months). Already having a three year old I just didn’t have a lot of time at my disposal!
