Nursery Inspiration: Singapore Black & White

Decorating a nursery can seem like a daunting task – particularly when you’re nine months pregnant and frankly just over it – but relax, mamas! We’ve enlisted Kavita from Singapore’s own house of gorgeous hand-block prints, Feroza Designs, to show how a single piece can inspire a theme that is both fun and effortlessly stylish. Read on to find out how you can feel like you have your very own version of a Singapore black and white, no matter where you live!

I recently came across this fabulous print of a vibrant Toucan by ‘Small Editions’ (4). A vision of a colonial-style nursery immediately popped into my head and I thought it would be so fun to do a storyboard on what a nursery in one of the old Singapore black and white houses would look like.

The print decided the colour palette for this room – palm tree green and black with accents of bright orange. Rattan and cane furniture like the Plantation chair (10) (similar ones are available at Verandah Living) are perfect for a colonial feel and they also help to lighten up the space and give some texture. The bold chevron rug (11) adds a modern twist to this theme. You could even use a large jute rug under the chevron to add another dimension of colour and texture (Taylor B makes Jute rugs in custom sizes)

Storage is always a key element in children’s rooms and the cane box from Bungalow 55 (9) can do triple duty as a side table, footstool and toy box.

Changing tables get used for such a short time and take up space. It makes sense to invest in a good quality dresser instead that can be used as a changing table to start with. A three-drawer dresser like this one from Verandah Living (13) would fit nearly all of your baby’s wardrobe, swaddles, towels and diapers with room to spare!

We all know how hot and humid Singapore gets. I personally do not like air conditioners running in the kids’ room all day (especially since my 3-year-old tends to get allergies with the air conditioner on). Ceiling fans are a great alternative and you will be surprised by how effectively they cool a room (not to mention they are cheaper and greener!). The wooden fan (2) really pulls the look together in this room.

It’s hard to find light cotton bedding that works for Singapore’s tropical climate. That’s really how the idea for Feroza’s range of cotton voile bedding was born. The simple and graphic black dohar summer blanket (6) works so well in this room. The green cot from Incy Interiors (7) brings a fantastic pop of colour and allows the bedding to shine.

The best thing about this room is that it can transition to a big girl or big boy’s room easily as it doesn’t scream ‘baby’. Just replace the cot with this amazing green seahorse bedhead from Verandah Living, or a more simple design like this from Incy Interiors (available at The Children’s Showcase) and you’re done!

I hope this has given you a few ideas and inspires you to create a fun space for your child’s room! Remember it doesn’t have to be blue for boy and pink for girl – start with a piece you love and let the room grow from there!

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀
