- A Project For: Sweet Toby James
- Age: Newborn
- Location: Topeka, Kansas
We wanted a warm, bright, little bit pastel, little bit whimsey room that our baby boy could grow into. We wanted to use simple inexpensive furniture pieces that would transition well with our baby as he grows. I know that babies are supposed to see brighter colors better when they are younger, but I thought this room would still give off a happy a secure glow even though the colors are more pastel. We were so happy with how the room turned out. I'm shocked and amazed at my decorating abilities with this room. It may be my decorating magnum opus!!;-)
Honestly, the curtains and crib sheet set pattern. It's Dwell Studio for Target. Once I found it everything else just formed around it, including the paint color on the walls. Before I found it I had no idea what I was going to do!!
Mid-Century meets Parisian pied-a-terre. At least that's what I'd like to believe best describes my decorating style;-)
Will work on completing this list as I can.
Mobile: Made by hand with origami paper, thread, hot melt glue gun, an embroidery hoop, and lots of patience.
Painting: Made extremely quickly by hand with Martha Stewart paints at Michael's and a canvas.
Yellow baby blanket: This was my baby blanket that my mother's friends made for me. She gave it to me to use for Toby. It's very special to have it.
Picture frames: It was really hard to find unfinished frames. I found a few at Michael's and some of the others I got from Frame Place USA.
Ferris Wheel picture: Etsy
Paris Map: Etsy
Owl, Elephant and Cat pictures: greeting cards I found at Target
Bedding and curtains: Dwell Studio for Target
Rug: West Elm
My favorite items are the crane mobile and the four pictures on the walls over the two book cases. They were drawn by my husband, step-daughter and two step-sons for Toby.
Look all over the internet for ideas!!
