Just look at the picture above*. I’m loving the apple green with lots of bold and bright turquoise blue accessories and furniture. For boy or girl, nursery or toddler room, turquoise is hot! And I’ve got 7 uber cool decor and furniture ideas for you to look at and start getting inspired.

These tubs are normally used for gardening and DIY but I love them as toy storage buckets. They come in various sizes so you can get one of each.

You can get these in loads of DIY stores but I found them at Millbry Hill and they cost from £3.99 – £6.75, depending on size and delivery’s from £2.50.

Crochet excites me every time. I love anything crocheted. And this stool’s right up there with the crochet greats! It’s simple, it’s stylish and would look fabulouso in a kiddy’s room.

I’m a huge fan of the Finnish Marimekko. They make the most delicious things for the home and kids. Amongst their lovelies is this large fabric wall hanging. The pale turquoise against the red and yellow just gives it the wow factor. And of course the 3 animals graphics are fab too. This Marimekko nursery wall hanging measures 120 x 120cms, costs £109.50 plus delivery from Wall Arts UK.
