K's nursery was pieced together with the intention of creating a fun, whimsical, "make me wanna smile" space to enjoy. My husband and I love to spend time in the nursery with our little man and we think (hope) he enjoys it as much as we do.
Much of our design inspiration came from browsing the gallery here at Project Nursery. However, after I found and purchased the fabric for the curtains, everything else slowly fell into place. Admittedly, not everything in the room necessarily goes well with another and there is definitely A LOT of pattern in the room, but all of it put together makes me chuckle inside and that's really the "theme" we stuck to.
Primarily modern. One of the most difficult aspects to work around was the crib since we believe a bed (or crib in this case) should always be in a East/West orientation. That's why the crib is set that way and not up against the wall like in many other nurseries.
Wall decal: The original design is called "Retro Dotted Tree" by circlelinestudio. The decal itself was actually recreated (with permission from the designer) with latex paint and hand-cut stencils.
Crib: Walmart's Baby Mod Modena 3-in-1 Fixed-Side Convertible Crib in white.
Chest and toy/book shelf: IKEA's Hemnes and Expedit (+ legs).
Glider: Purchased second hand from Kijiji then repainted and reupholstered.
Storage boxes in Expedit: Plain white boxes I purchased from XSCargo that I painted with acrylic paint.
Area rug, lamps, side table: Homesense
Curtain fabric: Kaufman How The Grinch Stole Christmas Spots Chartreuse.
Canvas art: DIY project. The images are clipart images from Fotolia (rvika is the name of the author).
Crib mobile and bracket: DIY project
Paint colour: Valspar's "Drizzling Mist"
It's very easy to get carried away with patterns and colours, but that's what makes this room fun and enjoyable for us. Take the time to wait and really search for items that you feel will make the room all that more special.
