Home Decor and Nesting for new mums

1

I clearly remember when I was pregnant that the closer to the due date I was, the more frustrated I got because of our flat. I felt nothing was ready and I felt I need to finish things, change them, improve and welcome baby Liam to a stunning new clean home. Then I found out it is an actual thing called Nesting. Not all women have to go through that but there are loads that experience this urge to improve their homes.

Well, no wonder. Firstly your life will change massively and you will probably spend more time home than ever and secondly your priorities will change and there is a new addition to your family. That means more things from clothes to toys and also you will have more and more visitors. The entire life as you knew it will be different and even if you want it or not you have to adjust things in your home.

I am huge fan of decor and especially when it is chic and practical at the same time. If you are a new mum or mum to be you have to think about practicality as well as design and they can go hand in hand. And if you live in a smaller flat like me you have to think about furniture and decor even more. So I thought about what would I advice any new or mum to be to get for their homes. We all have different views but I would go for these 5 items.

Top 5 picks to make life of a mum comfortable, easy and keep the touch luxury

  1. Comfortable bed with storage and bonus points for stunning design – You will spend lot of time in bed at least first few weeks so make sure your choice is the best. You will also lack sleep for the few months so the right choice of bed is crucial to make those few hours of sleep very comfortable.
  2. Day bed for your spare room or nursery – That is one of the first things I got for my house and there are so many reasons for that. Firstly you and your partner may need to sleep in separate rooms (not all men want to end up tired at work every day). Secondly you may use it for yourself when you are starting to teach baby to sleep in their own room. Thirdly you can use it for guests that come to your place. And if you chose a day bed with storage you can use it for bedding, toys, clothes or anything really. And I know few of my friends then ended up using it for kids when they grew up as their bed for the bedroom. What a great investment.
  3. Foot Stool ideally with storage – Imagine that you have to nurse every two to three hours in average. Who would not like a bit of comfort whilst doing it and what better way to do it than with your feet up.
  4. Comfortable chair for nursing and bonus points if it looks great – I have been looking for a nice feature chair that I could use as a nursing chair for a long time. We all have different tastes but I tend to find the actual nursing chairs not that great. So why not to go for a lovely design and comfortable chair and it is another excuse how to bring a lovely piece to your family home.
  5. Dining table and ideally extendable – With a new arrival you will probably have to shift your life a bit. It can mean that you will host dinners instead of going out or you have visitors and family over for lunch. So a lovely dining table where you can fit few people is a key for me. And if it is extendable you do not need to worry if you have have few more guests.

Whatever your priorities are we all want to make sure we make family life happy, comfortable and easy. So make sure that your next home purchase is the right one for you.

Pamatuju si, ze kdyz jsem byla tehotna, ze cim vice se blizil termin porodu tak tim vice jsem stresovala ohledne naseho bytu. Manzel si vzdy chce delat vse sam a dopada to tak, ze ziju permanentne v prachu a obklopena naradim ( a to si nedelam srandu). A o to vic jsem snila o tom, ze privedu Liama domu do krasneho, utulneho cisteho bytu. Chtela jsem vse menit a upravovat. S uklidem mi pomohla maminka, ale doted si preju si poridit par novych kousku domu, ktere by se mi hodily vice nez drive. A ono je to vlastne i normalni ukaz u zen v ocekavani tzv. Nesting, ze maji potrebu upravovat svuj dum, uklizet, vylepsovat apod. 

Nektere veci jsem si jiz splnila a nektere jsou stale na mem wish listu. Clovek si az pozdeji uvedomi, ze zivot se mu trosku zmeni. Neni to nic strasneho, ale jsou to veci jako potreba vice ulozneho prostoru, chcete pohodli a zaroven i hezke veci, protoze doma travite s ditetem jako matka vice casu. Neni nad to si poridit hezke a prakticke veci a ktere kousky jsou teda podle mne dobre? Vetsina z toho vychazi hlavne z faktu, ze ziju v mensim byte, ktery ma dve loznice, obyvaci pokoj a kuchyn, takze o nakupuju nabytku musim premyslet dvounasob. 

  1. Dobra a hezka postel idealne s uloznym prostorem. Prvnich par dni jsem stravila v posteli. Za prve po porodu vas vse boli, zvykate si a take hodne kojite a tak je skvele mit hezkou a pohodlnou postel a kdyz ma ulozny prostor tak je to nejlepsi varianta. 
  2. Rozkladaci denni postel tzv. day bed idealne s uloznym prostorem. To byla jedna z veci, kterou jsem poridila do vedlejsiho pokoje jeste pred narozenim Liama. Za prve ji muzu pouzivat ja az si bude zvykat na svuj pokojik, nebo tam muzeme spat i ted (kdyz se potrebuje manzel vyspat) a v neposledni rade slouzi jako postel pro hosty. Vybrala jsem rozkladaci s uloznym prostorem a pocitam s tim, ze v budoucnu muze slouzit i jako postel pro deti. 
  3. Stolicka/Lenoska pod nohy – V prumeru vas ceka kojeni kazde dve az tri hodiny a proc si u toho neudelat pohodli. Ja uz svou mam a ta ma ulozny prostor, ale pokud doma zadnou nemate, urcite je to dobra investice. 
  4. Hezke a pohodlne kreslo na kojeni – Tohle jsem hledala pekne dlouho a konecne nasla. Opravdova kojici kresla se mi designove nelibi a tak jsem chtela takove, ktere bude pohodlne a hezke a bude hezky zapadat do naseho interieru. 
  5. Velky jidelni stul idealne rozkladaci – S prichodem miminka se mozna zmeni i vas spolecensky zivot a je skvele napriklad poradat vecere u vas. Muzete pozvat pratele uz kdyz je miminko male. A take musite pocitat s tim, ze vas ceka hodne navstev, alespon z pocatku. 

At uz mate priority stejne ci odlisne, je treba o investicich do vaseho domova hodne premyslet, aby vam nove veci proste vyhovovaly.

Last Maternity Outfit

2

I can finally show you the last maternity outfit. I know I gave birth almost three weeks ago but this outfit will close my pregnancy fashion posts and we can all move on. It is time to start to create new content and focus on new phase in my life. I am slowly starting to get used to having a little one and although it is hard work it is also so nice to have this little munchkin in my life. We already made it to our first event together however so far I need to reject almost all events. He is too tiny to be left home and plus there is the breastfeeding. We are pretty much chained to each other at least for now.

And now about my outfit. As you can see leggings were my thing in the last month of pregnancy however it is again about how you dress them up. I picked one of my favourite maxi cardigans. Unfortunately that is no longer available to buy but this Missoni baby is very similar when it comes to style. And I also took my new Saint Laruent blogger bag for a spin. I cannot get enough of that cute little thing.

So now it is time to catch a new breath and bring lot of new and exciting content to you. Challenge is on.

Konecne vam muzu ukazat posledni tehotensky outfit. Vim, ze jsem porodila uz skoro pred tremi tydny, ale timto postem chci uzavrit kapitolu tehotenstvi a tehotenske mody. Ted se budu snazit tvorit obsah jako drive jenom s tim, ze mame navic v rodine maleho clovicka. Uz si pomalu zvykam na novou rutinu a i kdyz je to hodne prace tak kdyz ho mam u sebe nebo vidim jak kazdy den dela nove a nove veci, tak to stoji za to. Uz jsme spolu zvladli prvni blogerskou akci, ale i presto skoro vsechny odmitam. Bud jsou pozde vecer a hlavne je jeste hodne malicky. A diky kojeni je vse slozitejsi. Kojeni na verejnosti mi neni moc prijemne, ale snad si zvyknu i na to. Zatim jsem k malemu zkratka pripoutana.

Co se tyce meho outfit tak jak vidite leginy v devatem mesici tehotenstvi zkratka vedly. Tento krasny svetr je sice uz vyprodany, ale pokud mate radi znacku Missoni, tak se urcite podivejte na tento, ktery jsou stylove velmi podobny. A samozrejme jsem momentalne zamilovana do me zanovni Saint Laurent kabelky. Jak jsem rekla uz tisickrat i leginy se daji doladit. Staci jenom spravne kousky a doplnky.

Outfit: Embroidered Dress

Pictures by Anna Sandul
Wearing: Dress: Asos, Shoes: Zara, Bag: Gucci

I still have two outfits to show you from the last month of pregnancy. It would be pity not to share this cute embroidered maternity dress. After a long time I felt I wanted to be a girly girl and went wild with prints, colours and flowers. When I say wild I mean wild in my world. For some people this can still be very subtle. LOL

You are probably keen to have some update about the baby, my feelings and motherhood. It is a hard job, I will not lie and there is so much to learn and so much to do. The worse thing is the unknown and fear if I am and will be good enough. Hopefully, with time I will be more confident every day. Liam is one week and even small tasks like changing the nappy seems to get easier. So fingers crossed. I would be glad to hear your stories about being a mum.

Jeste mam dva tehotenske outfity z posledniho mesice tehotenstvi a byla by skoda je schovavat. Navic kdyz jsem se v tomto pripade rozhodla docela pro zmenu a oblekla si tyhle holcici a roztomile tehotenske saty opet s vysivanim. Myslim, ze jsem trosku pridala na pilu, protoze v posledni dobe byla moje tehotenska moda spise kombinace legin a neceho. Ale co pro nekoho muze zrovna tohle byt ta spravna kombinace.

Asi cekate na nejake zpravy ohledne miminka a take toho jak se citim. Je to narocne nebudu vam lhat, ale to asi vsechny maminky vi. Hlavne je toho tolik se naucit a poznavat sve dite. Nejhorsi je, kdyz neco nevite nebo nemuzete dojit na to, proc miminko place. Ale to asi taky jiste znate. Urcite je ve me i davka strachu, zda to vsechno zvladnu, ale budu se snazit a verit, ze casem to bude jenom lepsi a lepsi. A ja budu pevne stat v kramflecich. 

A urcite uslysim rada vase pribehy o tom, kdyz jste se stali mamou a jak jste se citili?

Liam’s Silver Cross Nursery

4

As many of you may have seen on my social media my husband and I had a new arrival of baby Liam Tadhg on 28th August. I am planning a big post about my birth story but firstly I wanted to share with you Liam’s lovely Silver Cross nursery. I have always been huge fan of white and grey tones and neutrals in general. I find these tones and colours calming when it comes to home deco.

So I naturally picked this gorgeous Notting Hill Nursery that met my expectations when it comes to design, practicality and colours. The set comes with spacious wardrobe, cot and a changing table with drawers that gives me great storage for things like nappies, muslins and so much more. The wood has got gloss finish which is easy to look after and gives the whole collection lovely feel. One of the reasons why I picked this set is also the cot can be later changed to a normal bed so that will save you time and money once your child is older and needs a bed instead.

One of my favourite things is definitely the amount of storage this set offers. When you have a baby you start acquire lot of stuff including toys, clothes, nappies and so much more. And storage is one thing you will need. All of a sudden you have this extra room in your house and extra stuff and that needs to be organised. Well, at this point we do not have lot of toys but I feel there will be still enough space to put them somewhere. To match the whole feeling of the nursery I also picked lovely bedding from Silver cross. Wish Upon a Star screams luxury and goes perfectly with the whole nursery deco. Liam is too small to enjoy his Musical mobile but give it few weeks and I think he will appreciate it more. LOL Well at least I hope so.

You are probably asking about the day bed in the nursery. That is not part of the collection but I felt firstly that I may need somewhere to sleep or guests staying with us may use it as well. I tried to keep everything tone in tone and went for white. What a surprise.

I am very happy with Liam’s room as it looks chic, cosy and meets all my expectations when it comes to being practical and looking good at the same time. I think Liam loves it too (or he will once he can appreciate it). He is today 5 days old today and I am not going to lie things are challenging but then things can only get easier and better. It is a huge learning curve for me and my husband and it is good to at least have a great environment and comfortable nursery room. Every small thing can make things much easier for you.

Jak mozna vetsina z vas videla jiz na socialnich mediich tak jsem spolecne s manzelem privitala na svet naseho chlapecka Liam Tadhg. Liam se narodil 28. srpna a urcite bych rada vydala cely post venovany porodu a jak to u me vsechno probihalo. Timto nechci blog zmenit v typicky maminkovsky blog, ale Liam bude soucasti meho zivota a tim se prirozene na blogu vzdy nejakym zpusobem promitne.

Dneska jsem vam chtela predstavit jeho Silver Cross Nursery/Pokojicek, protoze je to zkratka novou soucasti naseho domova a zivota. Kdyz jsem planovala pokojicek tak jsem chtela udrzet veci, ktere mam rada. Chtela jsem chic nabytek, neutralni barvy idealne sede a bile tony a zachovat i prakticknost. A proto jsem se rozhodla pro set Notting Hill, ktery mi vsechny tyto veci nabizi. Jsem hrozne vdecna za dostatek ulozneho prostoru, barvy a take fakt, ze postylka se pozdeji da promenit v normalni postel az bude Liam vetsi. Tim usetrim jak cas tak i penize a nebudu muset kupovat vetsi postel.

Soucasti tohoto setu je skrin, prebalovaci pult s uloznym prostorem a postylka. Vse je v bilem provedeni s leskem, coz se bude urcite lehce udrzovat. Od Silver cross jsem si take vybrala povleceni a doplnky jako tento krasny kolotoc, ktery hraje. Liam je zatim malicky, aby tohle vnimal, ale doufam, ze za par tydnu si bude vsimat vice. 

Mozna se ptate, proc mam v jeho pokojicku jeste postel, ale ta tam slouzi pokud bude treba nutne aby tam nekdo s malym spal a nebo kdyz budu potrebovat nekam ulozit hosty, kteri u nas budou pres noc.
