A Music Themed Nursery
Since our home is Mid-Century Modern, we knew we wanted to keep our baby’s nursery clean, simple and someplace he could grow into. My husband is a musician, so we have an abundance of guitars around the house. In addition to needing a place to stash one or two, we also knew that he would want to play for our son, so the music theme evolved pretty organically! We found the orange album cover in his vinyl collection, the orange guitar pillow, and the toy box (I couldn’t resist it!), and the color palette came together! I also knew I would be incorporating the rocking chair...it was my mother’s when she was a child...I had originally planned on painting it, but now I’m so glad I decided to leave it as-is.

The dresser/changing table and some of the other smaller items in the room are repurposed from other rooms in the house.
One of my favorite things in the room is the framed onesie. We had been toying around with the name Bowie, when we came across this onesie in a shop and decided to buy it “just in case”. After he grew out of it, I put it in a frame I had...as kind of a subtle way of of putting his name up in the room.
We really tried to use what we had (for the wall collages, especially), and shop for items that could be re-used later either in a "big-boy" room, or someplace else in the house. That way we get the most mileage out of our purchases and avoid anything too "baby" that Bowie will be tired of in a couple of years.For more pics, advice and info, you can check out my "New Mama" posts on Prairie Hive!
