Our guest room became the perfect nursery

Pale grey walls and an oak floor formed the perfect blank canvas to showcase the design ideas that Gaby and Ben Hillman had for their daughter’s first bedroom

For Gaby and Ben Hillman a nursery wasn’t in the plan when they took on the challenge of building a rooftop apartment in Brighton in May 2011. ‘We were getting married that summer so we knew this would be our first family home,’ explains Gaby, a paediatric physiotherapist. ‘But we wanted flexible space as we didn’t know what the future held.’

Gaby and Ben have created the ideal neutral nursery using vibrant mint and yellow, that’s simply perfect for baby Hope

Total Cost £2,099

The project took off once the couple received planning permission to turn the ‘air space’ above Ben’s top floor flat into a stylish new three-bedroom home – six months later they’d moved in. It’s unsurprising that Ben, an interior designer and TV presenter, took on the design and planned the layout himself, placing three bedrooms next to one another, which were first used as an office, guest bedroom and master bedroom. When the couple discovered they were expecting in 2014, the benefits of his adaptable layout came to fruition. ‘We always thought the guest room would make a good nursery one day,’ says Gaby. ‘It’s a lovely shape and size.’
