Nursery Sneak Peak with Graham and Brown

With the arrival of our first baby imminent, I thought I’d give you a nursery sneak peak, to see how we’ve transformed the spare bedroom in our Victorian terrace.

But until this project is done, we can’t really start on the nursery, which is starting to drive me wild. So instead, I have to settle with Pinterest and window-shopping for now. Continue reading
