Neutral Toddler Room

Oh I love a neutral room – the soft palette is so calming and a perfect base to add trends or try new ideas over the years. Talan’s room is a stunning example.

Styled by his mum Nicola (@teaching.talan) the room captures all of Talan’s current interests. In particular, the @_cattywampus_  Tee Pee is a favourite place for Talan to play with his musical instruments. The choice of wooden toys, muted tones and soft textures are so warm and inviting, a beautiful space to grow in.

I am delighted to share this stunning room, and the insight from Nicola on creating this gorgeous room for her son.

Tell us about the owner of this toddler room:

“Talan is turning two in July ( where did the time go?!) Bernie (Talan’s Dad) & myself agree that it’s the best age yet. Talan is full of energy and very cheeky but at the same time very caring. Talan’s favourite thing to do is to play in his teepee with his musical instruments and to ride his balance bike around the house.”

What was the brief for the room?

“When Talan hit the age of 20 months we knew it was time to turn his space from a nursery to a big boy room. We finally found the perfect bed that suited our style and everything else just fell into place.
I wanted to keep with the modern, Scandi feel as it’s the style throughout our home. Normally I don’t steer away from whites and greys but I just had to add in mustard accessories to give it that colour pop I felt it needed.”

What inspired you to create this room?

“I absolutely love Minty Magazine and I found so much inspiration for Talan’s room it it. I felt it gave me the confidence to give it my best shot to style his room myself.”

What is your favourite feature of the room?

“My favourite feature would have to be his @_cattywampus_ teepee. Talan enjoys using his imagination while in there and loves when mummy and daddy get in too for story time.”
