- A Project For: Our First Baby
- Location: Portland, OR
As we do not know the gender of our baby, I've created a colorful nursery fit for either king OR queen! I chose green, aqua, and orange highlighted with white furniture to brighten the small space with my limited budget. I enjoyed finding creative ways to get the look I wanted while keeping costs down and had a blast mixing patterns too!
I wanted to create something bright, modern, and fun without being gender specific. As we are renting a small apt (with ugly carpets and wood trim), it was important to me to still create something fresh feeling for our new littlen!
Functional. Inner-city living has many perks, but extra space is not one of them. Many of the pieces in our apartment have multiple uses or storage solutions, and the nursery could be no different.
"Window seat" is an Ikea bookshelf with a custom pillow cover from an Etsy seamstress. The changing table is also Ikea, with another Etsy custom sewing job for the changing pad cover. Chair is the Corando Glider and crib is by Storkcraft http://www.amazon.com/Stork-Craft-Monza-Fixed-Convertible/dp/B0051SDXNC
The bedding sewed by baby's grandmother or my husband's and my own favorite music posters framed as the artwork for the walls.
I think the white vinyl pattern on the walls really made the room more whimsical without breaking the bank. This is also a great solution as we are renting our unit and it can easily be removed, as opposed to painting.
