Get the look: Stacey Solomon’s pink nursery
TV presenter, author and Instagram sensation Stacey Solomon is always giving us interiors inspiration but her latest project has really caught our attention.
Stacey and her fiancee, fellow TV presenter and actor Joe Swash are expecting their baby girl in the next few months, and the former has been sharing her nursery progress with us via Instagram. Feeling inspired? Steal her style using our ideas below…
For those choosing not to find out what they’re having, gender neutral nurseries are really having a moment right now. However, as Stacey and Joe have chosen to find out, they’ve opted for traditionally girlie tones of pinks – hardly a surprise since the pair have already welcomed four boys between them! Abby Hesketh, colour expert at Graham and Brown explains: “If choosing to paint with pink, neutral shades are an elegant way to add a soft sophisticated warmth to an otherwise neutral colour palette. It’s known to evoke feelings of calm and reduce tensions which is the perfect aura for a young infant’s bedroom and also co-ordinates well with other colours so you’ve got plenty of scope when it comes to furniture.”
One of the most lavish and exciting parts of Stacey Solomon’s pink nursery makeover is the amazing floor to ceiling pink faux flower wall. Grabbing our attention immediately, this special element of the room is truly unique but a great idea to mesmerise and relax little babies using the power of nature.
Jess Martin, design expert at Ginger Ray comments: “Artificial flower walls are a fantastic substitute if creating one with real plants or flowers isn’t feasible. Not only can you pin them up and take them down as you please, they’re also an affordable option and are incredibly simple to put up. “Flower wall backdrops make a stunning focal point for any room – it’s best to go with pale, neutral colours such as whites and light pastel shades to suit most decor. To create a flower wall, you simply clip a selection of smaller tiles together to create one big wall. The beauty of this is you can make the wall as big or small as you please, depending on the space you have.”
Another defining feature of the nursery is the wood-effect luxury floor tiles, laid in a herringbone pattern. This style is hugely popular at the moment especially in lighter, white and grey tones. It’s no surprise Stacey has chosen it for the pink nursery with its warm, easy to clean, durable and cost effective traits.
Store in style
If there is one thing Stacey is well-known for, its organising! From her bestselling book Tap To Tidy and her upcoming BBC series, Sort Your Life Out, to her daily Instagram stories showcasing ‘refill hour’ and her famous labels. So it’s safe to say, Stacey is no stranger to a storage hack. Therefore, it’s certainly not a surprise that the nursery has plenty of places to tidy away all her new baby bits. We love the woven white baskets in her closet, easy for keeping essentials close by when you need them but also neatly tidied away.
2021 brought us lockdown, banana bread and an addiction to iced coffee, but it also brought panelling to the forefront of homeware trends. It looks fantastic in this nursery setup, adding an extra element of chic design to the powdery pink wall. Find out how to tackle panelling with beads in your home with our guide.
It’s all about the accessories
No room is totally finished without a selection of specially picked accessories. We love the fluffy rug inside Stacey Solomon’s pink nursery as it is used to add a softer feel to the hardwood flooring. We’re also obsessed with the pampas grass she has dotted about her home, so of course in the nursery, too.
Finally, no nursery is complete without a comfy chair for breastfeeding baby, getting them off to sleep, or just enjoying a sit in your freshly decorated room. Stacey has hit the spot with the velvet pincushion armchair (complete with princess turret, obvs). This pink velvet cocktail accent chair from George at Asda is a beautiful alternative, and at just £75 it’s a real bargain!
