Woodland Nursery

I've been meaning to take a few photographs of my 'woodland' inspired nursery. The main inspiration was the wallpaper that I had seen first from Laura Ashley it is a pretty white paper with sage, pinks and lavender metallic trees on. I also purchased the design in the fabric and made a large cushion and re-covered the tie backs on the existing curtains to bring them into the theme. The deer cushion was bought complete from Laura Ashley, along with the heart lavender sachets, storage boxes and a future matching duvet cover.

The colours on the wallpaper inspired the background colours of the picture canvases; picking up the white, sage, pale pink, lavender and apricot. I then created five woodland characters a bear, deer, bunny, owl and fox. The canvases were hand painted and placed either side of the window and around the cot. I knew this time round I wanted the picture canvases as my eldest I painted a huge teddy bear mural on her wall and feel there will come a day I will have to paint over that, yet the canvases can be kept or moved to another room in the future.

The woodland height chart and additional deer stickers are from Great Little Trading Co.
 I found a lovely Owl clock from Not On The High Street.com which was made by lulabird

Recently I have expanded my products and developed prints that are printed on heavyweight 310gsm Museum grade fine art paper then individually signed and dated. Shown here is the Woodland Picture Prints taken from my original artwork available at lizajdesign.co.uk and my store at notonthehighstreet.com prices start at £20.00 for a mounted print or £40.00 each for the white framed prints shown.

Finally I introduce the new Woodland Owl Picture Print Personalised which I shall be uploading shortly onto the system, this just finishes off the nursery nicely and will be available with a purple, pink or white framed option, priced at £45.00. Now available here
