preparing for juliet’s arrival was one of the funnest experiences in my life. i spent so much time researching the perfect little details for her room and wardrobe, discovering the coolest brands and companies that have a stylish view on childhood. she was born a week early, and i was afraid our home wasn’t entirely ready for her, but when we brought her home i was surprised to realize she was what was missing before. when i put her on the changing table or in her cradle, something seemed to click. the last few doubts disappeared, and suddenly it seemed so obvious where everything should be. i’m still so in love with her little room, i thought it’d be nice to give you another peek.

#onmyvippshelf // i love this white metal shelf unit from danish brand VIPP. it’s modern and sleek, and ideal to showcase little knick-knacks or to hold baby essentials. at first i wanted to hang it near the changing table to hold nappies, but when i was looking for a place to put juliet’s lightbox, it just seemed like too perfect a combination. // can we talk about that lightbox? i ordered it from a dutch couple i discovered VIA INSTAGRAM, and i love it to bits. they used the same type and spacing as SOKI STUDIO designed for juliet’s birth announcement. // and about that cloud mobile from PINCH TOYS… i used an IKEA hanger to mount it on the shelf, but actually it’s moving around the house constantly because i love it so much. // more on the shelf – a little bunny lamp i got at BON TON in paris + the sweetest little note from STADTLANDKIND + those lovely design letters we got via STUDIO AIMEE

#thechangingcorner // i can’t even put into words how much i love juliet’s changing table from danish brand BUDTZ&BENDIX. i firt discovered the brand when i noticed their high chair as an incredibly stylish alternative to the ones i knew until then. i got in touch with the two ladies behind the brand, both architects and really smart, kind women. i’ll be introducing them in more detail soon, as theirs will be the next chapter in my KICK ASS WOMEN interview series. but for now, let me just tell you – their changing table is the. best. // those posters against the wall were a very sweet gift from my all-time favorite PLAYTYPE. i chose their shy series because i thought the word was appropriate for a baby nursery, but it turns out the black and white contrast is endlessly fascinating to juliet. she’s always wriggling around to look at them while i change her diaper. i can’t help but hope it’ll help pass on my love for typography! // you already know that MIFFY LAMP, which i got via COSYGIFTS.BE // and finally, another one of my absolute faves, the VIPP trash bin – such a classy and iconic way to get rid of dirty diapers…

#thatcradle // we went back and forth on getting juliet a cradle – babies sleep in them for six months at most, and the one we had our eye on wasn’t exactly cheap – but i’m so happy we finally decided to go for it. the LEANDER cradle has been her little cocoon for the past few weeks. it’s made with the gorgeous OOH NOO bedding – a mix of the triangle and geometric print. aside from the lovely monochrome styles, the quality of these linens is just superb. they also make the rocking horse in the fifth picture, which to me is a beautiful design object, and which will hopefully be a big hit with juliet, too – in a year or so.

#alsointhepics // you’ll see the hay ‘about a chair’ which we got at MASTER MEUBEL – before it’ll join our NEW LIVING ROOM, it’s the perfect place to feed juliet in the wee hours of the night, or rock her when she can’t sleep. // you’ll recognize the IKEA file cabinet from the SPRUTT COLLECTION which i introduced on the blog a while ago. it’s where i rotate my favorite posters in frames – right now that’s the pretty pinecone from PAPER COLLECTIVE. // the dotted basket is from cérise sur le gateau, and the little ghost rattle is from fabelab – i got both via STUDIO AIMEE. // the bunny is from JELLYCAT, and the white wire basket from SERAX. // juliet’s big bed is the sparrow model from OEUF and made with bedding from jack n’a qu’un oeuil, all of which i got at KIDS LOVE DESIGN. // the carpet is from pilepoil, also via KIDS LOVE DESIGN. // finally, in juliet’s closet behind the serax wire basket you’ll see a pretty paper bag from STUDIO BRENSTIJL, and next to it her impressive and growing collection of MINI MOCKS of which i’m not ashamed to say i’m incredibly jealous.

    Ah wat mooi! Ik ben nu zelf ook zwanger en aan het rond neuzen hoe het kamertje er uit komt te zien. Ik denk grijzig met zwart wit en dan de kleur door wat accessoires en de kleertjes, boeken en mooie prints aan de muur. Mooi kamertje!
