With writing a wedding blog as well as this baby blog, I’ve seen rather a lot of bunting over the past couple of years. It’s a trend I can’t imagine is ever going to go away as it’s always going to look adorable! With different fabrics, colours, shapes and so on, there are so many ways to make bunting work in baby’s room. Here are 5 ideas that are all using that classic triangle shape we all know and love…
1. Painted pennants
I love this rainbow of flags painted onto a wooden headboard. A DIY project that will become a feature of your little one’s bedroom.

2. Cute quilt
For something a little bit different how about stringing your bunting along a crib quilt? Cute!
3. Bright bunting
Click the link below this one and you’ll be directed to an awesome, easy tutorial to recreate the look yourself. Simple, but looks fantastic.
4. Cushion bunting
Whether you choose to buy a cushion such as this or have a go at DIYing a version, stitching across a cushion is a playful cute way to include bunting in baby’s room. The fabrics you choose can match with the duvet set and curtains too!
5. Ceiling strings
Bunting going across a room is a great way to add decoration to an otherwise undecorated room. Rather than paint a fancy mural or stick on a decal, bunting does the trick of adding colour. You could even go for several strings in varying patterns as in the room below…

My lovely friend Thea told me about her friend Lisa, the artist, who I’m featuring today. Lisa created this beautiful hand-cut butterfly installation for a lucky little girl called Aziza…
An installation like this is such a fantastic alternative to patterned wallpaper and could be any colour you choose.
You can see more photos of this project and other projects Lisa has worked on over on her website. I think the ‘Come Up To My Room’ piece is my favourite…
…although I doubt this would work as well in a child’s room; I can just imagine them spending a lot of time seeing if they could jump high enough to grab the flowers :D

If you’re not one for all that pastel nonsense (which actually isn’t nonsense at all I’m just trying to pitch this post to ya) then you’ll love the bright and bold choices in today’s nursery. Hot pink and tangerine aren’t often a colour combo you see a baby girl rocking in her nursery but that’s just what Baby Blake’s doing!

The reason her nursery’s so cool? I’m pretty sure it will have a lot to do with her stylish mum: Melody of Sweet & Saucy. And if you’ve never heard of Sweet & Saucy then you’re in for another treat after admiring these nursery pictures. Just click here :)
