Pictures in the gallery that leads to my room

Friends of mine will know how long I've waited to create a nursery for my baby. Here's Reuben's new bedroom (that is, before the onslaught of medical apparatus, for artistic purposes). I'm a modernist-minimalist and so the palette is very neutral and thus in stark contrast to the explosion of colour I've used in the playroom. In both rooms, I hope friends and family will recognise some of the beautiful gifts that have been given to Reuben since birth. Starting with a blank canvas, they indeed were the inspiration for each of the room's themes. A bed to match Reuben's crib design sits in the corner and is used by Jason or I at the weekends when we choose not to have a night nurse. With the pulsox monitor on, we are able to get a good sleep beside him. Baby Buttercup will sleep in with us for the first 6-12 months before joining Reuben in his bedroom. I like the thought of the babies sleeping side by side.
