Real rooms: Naomi’s neon nursery

Designing a nursery that’s stylish rather than cutesy is no mean feat — especially when you don’t know the gender of your bub! — but Naomi has certainly achieved this with her neon nursery.

This colourful space is a refreshing change from the norm and we absolutely love her clean-line baby furniture!

She’s modest about her abilities, saying she’s “Not the creative type” but has even impressed herself with the results.

We sat down with Naomi to find out how she put the room together.

Naomi's neon nursery
Feature wall of stars and block colours set the scene for this neon nursery

Your nursery is beautiful, where did the inspiration for the look come from?

I wanted a nursery that was modern, fun and a bit different.

“I love neon and knew I wanted to incorporate it throughout the nursery. I found neon Perspex frames online and that sparked the original idea.

“Not knowing whether I was having a boy or a girl, I opted for yellow.

“I wanted to balance the brightness of the neon yellow with grey and when I went shopping for grey paint I discovered silver. That set the colour theme of the nursery.

“With quite strong colours, I softened the overall look with tan wood and white furniture.”

Your feature wall looks great, was that hard to create?

“Not at all! And I’m not a painter,” laughs Naomi.

“We had to do a bit of measuring to position the masking tape before we started painting but once that was in place, it was really easy.

“We also used a stencil to paint the stars on.”

What elements of your nursery are you most happy with?

“I love all the small details.

“My sister made the neon curtain ties and a laundry basket with neon yellow panel.

“The mobile (found on Etsy) and wall prints are so cute and also tie into the theme.

“The most special thing is having my glory box in the room. My sister designed it and her husband made it as a gift for my 21st birthday. It means a lot to me.”

Thank you Naomi for showing us around your neon nursery. We hope you picked up a few ideas for your nursery, like that fab stencil paint hack.
