Designer Secrets – Nursery Times

If you’re setting up a room for your baby, where better to find some decorating inspiration than in the homes of mums who are also interior designers?

When 19-month-old Ted Harry Ward wakes in the night then sings himself to sleep by bellowing the rock version of Twinkle Little Star, his lucky parents, Janice and Julian, have front-row seats. Teddy’s room was originally meant as an en suite to their bedroom but when the couple moved into this ex-army cottage in Oratia, West Auckland, it was the only space left to convert to a nursery. Their gregarious daughter Stella, four, commandeered the other bedroom so Teddy got to be tucked around the corner from Mum and Dad.
