We were lucky enough to chat with Dale and Sophie Vine, former contestants on The Block about the gorgeous woodland nursery they created for their newborn baby boy, Van.

“It’s a calm, warm, imaginative and creative space, all the things I hope Van feels whilst growing up in there,” says Sophie.

Using the Cole and Son wallpaper as inspiration for the room, the duo then added key furniture pieces from Incy Interiors.

“The crib has such a contrasting finish (being metal), but it has this stunning old-world feel and hits a note of
nostalgia – we just had to have it,”

“I also can’t go past the adorable branch clothes rack and shelves that Dale made. I think there’s something really special about a father hand making things for his children,” she says.

With renovations to their family home still a work in progress, Sophie and Dale have chosen to style their ‘modern boho’ home with a mix soft organic and locally handmade pieces.

“We also love concrete, clean lines and keeping our spaces quite minimal – we try not to over clutter and only introduce a few, well considered pieces into each area of our home.”

It’s a rule Sophie and Dale have carried into the nursery and it seems this minimalist style will be the perfect base for Van to add his Ninja Turtles and Lego creations as he grows older.
