- A Project For: Brox Carter
- Age: 2 weeks
- Location: Dallas Tx
I wanted to create the perfect retreat for Brox that made him feel cozy and loved. Our home is a 1940's tudor with a very classic style and I wanted to tie his room into the rest of our home and create something that could grow with him.
I started out with the "you are my sunshine" wall art and just started building a collection of things I loved. I tied the pieces together with a gray pallete with strong masculine patterns like houndstooth. I loved hunting for great pieces like the cross stich wall art, vintage picture frame and refurbished dresser that doubles as a changing table.
I find pieces that reach out to me and have a special meaning and find ways to connect the dots and create a cohesive look. My style is very classic and traditional.
Crib-Bratt Decor Joy baby iron crib Glider-Monoco Glider from Baby Bliss Rug-West elm Chevron rug Dresser-refurbished by a local furniture dealer Book Shelf-Land of nod 6 cube bookshelf Cross stich hoop wall art-used left over fabric from the room to create free wall art. this was a way to tie in all my patterns. I love you to the moon and back cross stich- http://www.etsy.com/shop/RugglesMade Vintage records wall art-I used record covers from my childhood to create free wall art above the bookcase Chalkboard door-I painted the closet door with chalkboard paint and wrote an adorable winnie-the-pooh quote on it Curtains, bedskirt, changing pad cover-made with love by my grandmother Welcome to texas lampshade-Gypsy Wagon Dallas
I have so many favorite items! The "you are my sunshine" wall art is so special because my mom used to sing it to me as a little girl. The bedskirt, sheet, curtains and changing pad cover have special meaning because they were made by my grandmother. I also really like the fun funky welcome to Texas lampshade that adds a bit of pop to the room.
I think that the key to a great nursery is filling it with special pieces that make you smile and will one day have special meaning to your baby. Everything does not have to match!
