I'd live here in a heartbeat. Lovely.

I love your home. A lot.

Hurray! A home that someone actually lives in rather than constantly styles as if for a magazine shoot. I'm guessing any guests to your home love to linger?

I'd be very happy to spend a lot of time in this home.

Great job! Given that the article describes the "before" pic as a 1950s kitchen, I think the revamp has given the kitchen a much more modern feel. I always like to see rooms brought up-to-date through decoration rather than wall-smashing renovation - much more achievable for the average punter.

Love it! And, to echo previous posts, I particularly like the fact that it looks like you really do live in this home and most importantly, that your daughter is very much part it (and her belongings/toys/pictures aren't confined to a perfectly manicured bedroom).

What a beautiful home. Just a little thing - aside from the little girl's bedroom (beautifully styled by the parents right down to the book display), one would never guess this was a child's home too. Because it is, right?

I'm with dear hummingbird on this confusing term - a single bed for a single sleeper!

Love it! The Templeton Building is a fantastic structure and I think your flair and creativity really suits the interior space.

Best wishes, Glaswegian Fiona :)

I really like this room because it looks genuinely loved and lived in, unlike some of the other nursery tours where they have been designed to suit adult tastes (and lifestyles). I think most children would adore this room!

Hi Meg,

I wanted to post again to say that I truly do think you have created a beautiful room. I am also a teacher and know only too well the benefits of calm, peaceful and ordered spaces for children to grow, develop and learn (and as an adult, I appreciate how much I need them too).

I hope you and your wee family enjoy the space you have created,

Fiona

Wrenx,

You're absolutely right! Ruairi's pre-arrival room was fairly tasteful and I had wanted to implement a no-plastic-all-wooden-toys rule but alas, I have come to realise that children however small have their own taste, which seems to err towards all things tacky ;-)

Laughed at the post above this - you're so right about the mini-gym appeal of most furniture!

and I meant to say "its" - sorry for the bad grammar!

Whilst I think this room is a beautiful space to look at, I wonder how much of it really does cater for a growing child rather than it's lifestyle conscious parents. Like a previous poster suggested, I would love to see the room photographed again once Finn is here and has experienced a couple of Christmases and birthdays - would the room be just as serene? (and should it be?)
