Those of you that have read the latest post in our Inspiring Mums series will already know that we recently worked with Leah Wood to create a charming nursery for her newborn son, Otis. We caught up with the team behind Gigi Brooks Bespoke to find out exactly how the space came together.
'Leah had fallen in love with a beautiful hand painted crib from our Through the Woods collection. We also adore the furniture in this range as the bespoke illustrations encapsulate the innocence of childhood perfectly. Always made to order, no two items are alike within this individually handcrafted line. Working around existing details that Leah was keen to include, such as her bold patterned rug and some neutral curtains, we selected an array of practical pieces to add character and complete the room.'
Get the Look
Have you fallen for Otis's woodland storybook inspired nursery? Here's everything you need to recreate this delightful look in your own home...
Hand painted with a mother bunny helping her baby bunny get dressed amidst the beautiful English countryside, this piece has been designed with gentle berry illustrations and adorned with pastel checks and polka dot trim. Another stunning illustration showing two playful, bouncing baby bunnies can be found on the reverse end of the crib. Created from solid hardwood and delicately detailed with carved panels and graceful curves, this piece brings warmth and beauty to the nursery.
Striking clean lines define this impeccable ensemble for your child's crib or cot. From vintage inspired to contemporary chic, the crisp design of our Berwyn bedding works beautifully in many nurseries. Crafted from a combination of white and powder blue Irish linen, the pristine tailored skirt is boxpleated while an ultra soft fitted sheet made from 500 thread count ivory Swiss Italian cotton completes the polished, effortless look of this luxury bedding.
High above the London rooftops, on a ladder floating through the starry night sky, the Sandman glides with his trusty sack of golden sleep dust, sprinkling sweet dreams and soft slumbers on tired little heads tucked up in their beds below. This exquisite blanket was designed exclusively for Gigi Brooks. Each one is individually made using only the finest Scottish cashmere, bringing a gentle, calming touch to bedtime.
Bespoke-built in the style of a classic French baby changer, the main body of this beautiful piece features two large and two smaller drawers, while the taller end section houses a further two small drawers and a cupboard. The hand painted illustrations continue on the cupboards interior, revealing a vista of enchanting countryside where two adorable rabbits hop and jump along a path lined with trees. Each of the hand carved wooden handles also displays an individually hand painted woodland character.
Full of period charm and bursting with personality, this beautiful and unusual piece is our favourite among the entire collection. Based on a chifforobe from the early part of the 20th century, it ingeniously combines a chest of drawers with the shelving space of a wardrobe. The design has been brought up to date for modern children’s bedrooms, but retains the elegance of the period.
This wonderfully unique lamp has an intriguing shape. The curved silhouette displays detailed engravings that add to its elegant and irreplaceable appeal. The stand supports a classic pastel blue lampshade that features a generous, stylish bow, giving the piece character and sophistication.
We feel a well made chair or glider is an essential addition to a child's nursery. There's a lot of cuddling in the early days of a baby's life, and comfort really is key. Curvaceous lines, a sumptuous feel and visually outstanding, our Rosie set is simply divine. Shown here in luxuriously soft cream matelassé cotton with a raised alphabet script font, the combination of superior comfort, heavenly motion and elegant style brings this piece to a beautiful finish.
The combination of luxurious fabrics and ethereal colours has us swooning over this comforter at Gigi Brooks HQ, and Leah was equally enamoured. Fresh and clean while retaining a warm and inviting feel of vintage glamour, the Sophia Comforter is satin backed and lightly padded with a medley of luscious textures. Snuggle under in style or drape across the bed for an added touch of elegance.
Made from pure cotton on the outside and polyester fibre on the inside, our giant dolls are incredibly cuddly, but strong enough to withstand even the most dangerous of adventures. Each adorable character is soft and huggable, and all are experts at making friends!
The transformation of Otis's nursery provides the merest hint of the wonderous magic we can wield at Gigi Brooks HQ.
