I would describe our decorating style as a blend of eclectic, modern cottage.
If it seems like it shouldn't cost as much as it does then perhaps you can make it!! We also love to take free items most people would throw away and turn them into beautiful features for a home. The mural above the crib is made of toilet paper rolls. We saved them for around 7 months, and then cut them into approximately 3/4" strips. We used a hot glue gun and finishing nails to attach them to each other and the wall.
The bench under the window was made by my husband out of an old picket fence he rebuilt in our yard. Those cedar pickets had weathered for 40 years, and now they make a great clean line yet rustic addition to our baby's nursery.
We try to add little touches even to the store bought items to make them unique and set our space apart.
It's difficult to pick one item we love the most. We love each piece so much. We think the distressed yellow bookshelf was one of the best vintage finds. The wall mural and bench are also some of our favorite items in the room. Many hours were put into both of these pieces.
Stay out of baby stores! The only piece of baby furniture in this room is the crib. We wanted to make investments in our pieces. This furniture can be in our child's room until she moves out, or it could fit perfectly into another room in the house. We also kept it neutral so we could use it for a baby of another gender in the future.
