Olivia Bowen gives fans a glimpse into her gender-neutral nursery

Olivia Bowen has revealed the inspiration behind her gender-neutral nursery as her due date approaches.

In January, the Love Island star shared the exciting news that she and husband Alex were expecting their first child together.

Since then, the couple have regularly updated fans on their pregnancy journey as they prepare for their new arrival.

Olivia, formerly known as Olivia Buckland before her marriage, met her partner on the ITV 2 dating show Love Island in 2016.

She has since confirmed that they will not find out the sex of the baby until she is born – due in June – and is therefore decorating her luxury nursery using neutral colours.

Instead of traditional pinks and blues, Olivia opts for creams and whites, which she previously said were “so soothing, tranquil and neutral.”

On his TheBowenHome Instagram account, the 28-year-old gave fans an insight into how their newly transformed nursery has evolved over the past few months.

Pictures of the room show sleek wooden flooring and light neutral walls with animal-themed wallpaper and furniture.

A large circular rug covered in letters can be seen sitting in the center of the nursery with a pale armchair (found in Next) and a cute animal cushion – perfectly fitting the theme. The space has also proven a hit with their dogs.

Sharing a snap of Space Tidy’s ‘cute’ wardrobe with safari oak handles from Wood and Whistles, she wrote: ‘We opted for the Oxford stone color on the inset wardrobes to give a seamless look against the walls .Absolutely alive for the rattan insert detail, gives it such great depth and a vintage feel!”

To go with that, there are “cute and tiny” wardrobe dividers from Etsy.

Sharing some of her decorations with fans on Instagram, Olivia shared a photo of a plush giraffe in the modern nursery, photographed from her “beautiful soft light brown” walls.

Sharing a snap of her “little dream in a bedroom,” she wrote, “Our nursery.

“Here is our little dream in one room. I can’t even explain how quiet and inviting this space is in person, it turned out to be more than I imagined, I don’t feel like should be mine! Thanks to my amazing team on this one @themodernnursery @spacetidy @higgins_electrical_services @aclarkecarpets_flooring.

“It’s the little wardrobe area with our beautiful nursing chair, on the other side I was waiting for our furniture to arrive to show you but I haven’t got it yet so I thought I’d start by showing you this zone.”

As Closer Magazine shared, the 28-year-old opened up about the inspiration behind her newly transformed nursery by confirming that she called The Modern Nursery for some advice on “potential baby risks”.

Speaking to Closer Magazine about her top tips for decorating, she said: “My top tip for decorating a new home is to live in the space a bit to see how you navigate the house, where the sun is. falls, what works, what does not work.

“It’s easy to get rushed into decorating, but how the house works is so important.”

Since Olivia and Alex moved into their luxury Essex home in 2020, they’ve regularly shared updates of their renovations.

They added a home gym, movie theater, and dog shower for their beloved pooches. And there is also a hot tub and an outdoor bar and barbecue area.
