I am so, so excited to share these images from Dulux's brand new 'Inspiring Nursery Ideas' campaign that I styled late last year. What a dream brief! Together with the amazing Bree Leech, Dulux's Colour & Communications Expert, and the extremely clever Leanne Pearce, Dulux's Senior Brand Manager, we came up with six very differently themed nurseries - from the traditional pink or blue rooms through to the hipster baby cave.
It was such fun, buzzing around town collecting the props to bring these themes to life. And I have gotta say, baby furniture has come a long way in the (not that many) years since we were buying it. Babies are sooo cool these days.
I got to work with amazing photographer Jesper Nielsen for the first time (he was ably assisted by gorgeous Rebecca Newman), and over the course of a week, six rooms at three locations were transformed into the most adorable nurseries - a girl could almost get clucky! (just kiddin' Jez).
I need to give a massive thanks to all of the companies who supplied the furniture and props - you can find a full listing of suppliers at the Dulux website).
And, also over at the Dulux site, you can download the instructions for creating the paint effects and some of the craft ideas. I highly recommend the beautiful scallop pattern on the fireplace in the 'Dreamy Baby' room - we used my lounge room for that shot, and I loved the look so much we've kept it!
And now - can you guess which is my favourite room? ps, no prizes.... I am way too predictable for that.
