Nursery Vibes: Teepees and Triangles

If you’ve followed my Nursery Vibes story on the blog over the last eight months you’ll have seen the progression from extensive inspiration-hunting (Pinterest was my best friend back in the first trimester days) and whittling down my favourite colour schemes and styles – from soft white and grey décor to crazy brights and everything in between – to my ultimate ideal unisex colour palette of mint green, gold and grey.

The Dream Nursery Chair Has Landed!

With less than six weeks to go until due date, operation nursery has stepped up a gear.

The Week That Was… The Napa Cabbage!

Ok I admit, I don’t know what a Napa Cabbage is, but apparently it’s the size of a swede, so I guess a small cabbage. Either way, it’s been week 25 and baby’s getting bigger!

For me and Mr Lynch, this was the week of our baby moon – a long awaited and much needed week off work together, which we spent partly in North Wales before spending a few days at homer making a start on the nursery.
