English Countryside Themed Nursery

English Countryside Themed Nursery
July 6 2021

Childhood should be filled with whimsy and with magical things. Children thrive in an environment where they can imagine, dream and stay little. The English Horseback theme is inspired by all the classic literature that inspire those feelings, such as The Wind in the Willows, Peter Rabbit, and Ducks in the Park. It is a mix of vintage and contemporary, which creates a room that feels lived in and loved.

Horse Mobile

Starting from the top down, a mobile will be the first thing to inspire imagination. A custom made horse mobile follows the english horseback theme and creates a beautiful color scheme to begin decorating around.

Horse Wallpaper

2. The Gable Wallpaper

I am a wallpaper lover because of the vintage look it gives a room. My 2 year old loved looking at this picture, pointing out the cows, horses, and sheep. Having a mural on either the nursery ceiling or walls will create that whimsical feel we are all looking for.

This is a great and subtle way to add the classic english dog into this english themed room. In England, a dog was used for fox hunts while the hunter rode horseback. The gold matches the mirror and creates an anchor to the room. It is also functional for any small basket, picture, or decoration you want to display.

This crib, or better known in England as a cot, will hopefully be where your baby sleeps...of course if mama's arms are the other option, we know which one they’ll choose. With sleek lines and simple pieces, it allows for the focus of the room to remain on the smaller more vintage pieces.

I don’t know about you, but after writing this blog I am ready to make my boy’s room into one that is as whimsical and dreamy as this english horseback themed room would be. A great idea to remember when creating your baby’s nursery is to make it one where your child can dream as big as they want with no limitations. One that will encourage their imagination to grow and yet make them feel safe and loved.

Not surprisingly, it was the birth of my own son that made me realize it was time to expand, and offer a new line of designs for new families and children. We realized that when our Miss Design Berry clients started families of their own, they wanted the deeply personal service and customized design that they had come to know and love from working with us.

So, our mission for Kiki and Max is simply that - to launch a new family brand that brings the same dedication to service, detail, and personalization that our clients have grown to love so much.
