    I love the landmark silhouettes! What a great way to do a travel theme without it being all about suitcases and ethnic pieces that (most of the time) aren’t baby friendly.

    i really like your crib. do you mind me asking where you found it?

  • sheryzach

    Thanks catdelp!  Tippytoe1981 – the crib is from Baby’s First Furniture.  It is part of the Baby’s Dream – Legendary collection.  The link is

    Did you paint the walls yourself? They’re very nice and very educational in a way. And oh, what did you mean by “so that the landmarks flow geographically”? 

  • sheryzach

    Thanks Dandelion! Yes, my husband drew out the silhouettes and I used a fine detail brush to apply the paint.  Concerning the “landmarks flowing geographically”, I meant that we ordered the landmarks around the room in the same direction that they would appear on the globe.  When you walk into the room, you see Africa (Kenya) –> Europe (France) –> Asia (India and China) –> North America (NYC) –> and then back to Africa (Egypt).

    oops, in my earlier comment, I forgot to mention Australia between Asia and North America.

    What unique concept! I also like to travel and I couldn’t think of a better theme! Love your walls and your growth chart. I also love the muted colors of the nursery. Well done!

  • jenn

    Yes, I would love to know where to get the carpet too !

    Lindsey and Jenn, the rug is from Land of Nod. It is called the “flyover” rug. The link is

    What a gorgeous nursery! My husband and I have been toying around with a world travel theme for our nursery–I love what you’ve done. It has a lot of nice details without being overwhelming/too busy. I’m new to mural-ing so was wondering how you designed the silhouttes? Did you use a computer program to do the sketches? And/or a projector to get the drawings on the wall?

    Thanks a lot!

    Beautiful Nursery! Where did you purchase the art over the crib?

  • Christina

    Hi! Love the nursery! Where is the art from over the crib?

  • Rebecca

    We love the colors and tried to match them but can’t get me right. Will you share the colors??

  • Suzanne

    Love it! My husband (and I) love to travel internationally – my husband even more than I – and I can tell he’s already frustrated that we’ll have to cut back far-flung vacations while the baby is little. A nursery idea like this will be the perfect remedy for the travel bug and the perfect way to get my husband interested in decorating the nursery (which otherwise he’d politely decline)!
