I’ve had a massive insta-crush on @mowgliandthebear_ (formally @mikzuzu) since we both got out first brand rep gig with Christy from @littlemaggiemoo back in August 2015. I have watched @mowgliandthebear_ (whose real world name is Mikaela) create pure magic on her Instagram feed. She has two beautiful boys; Kemba (2 years old) and her newest addition, the just-darling Omri (7 months old). Mikaela is the flatlay and scandi-styling queen and if you are not already major crushing on her feed after this post you sure will be!
Most of all Omri’s nursery needed to be calm, light and bright. I wanted his nursery to feel like you were transported into a little European pocket in our home. I wanted to create a room that brought the outside in with natural elements but remained practical as he grew. Omri’s room is quite small with no built in storage so I knew room layout was extremely important. I began by collecting screen shot images in a folder in my phone and then narrowed down a list of must have items. I began with the shelving by @h_and_g_designs, changing basket from @olliella and the cabinet from @mockaaustralia. I shop small where I can and almost every other item was purchased around these and came from lots of different Instagram shops.
Seriously crushing on …
@olliella baskets, particularly they changing basket. I have a serious problem with baskets they are my jam, I swear I invent reasons for why I need more.
@madebymeeandco custom timber banners, they are super sweet and I love how we could custom them to say exactly what we wanted.
DYI touches – I love the couple of handmade items in Omri’s room they add that special touch, the DYI family ruler from @moore_creative that I completed the day before Omri came into the world and the hanging follaige mobile that we collected and made on our first little family getaway once Omri was born.
Top 3 Styling Tips
- Create a mood board / collection of screenshots to ensure you have a very clear vision so that your room/nursery flows cohesively but don’t be too matchy matchy
- Texture over colour – Rather than introduce lots of colour include a range of textual pieces they add depth and character to any room
- Leave room to grow and change – Shelves or hooks are great for this as it enables you to change the room easily as your child grows.
Shop the look
