We wanted something contemporary, and not too baby-ish, lol. It started with the wallpaper, and grew from there. We have incorporated old and new into this room and I love the way it feels.
The wallpaper was probably my inspiration. I liked the mod feeling of it, and loved the colours. We weren't sure whether we were having a boy or a girl at that point and I felt it was fairly gender neutral.
I don't think I have a decorating style, I just try to put things in my space that I truly love; if you love everything in the room, you will love the room as a whole too.
There are a few DIY projects in this room:
1) painted the blue dresser - we decided to paint this a similar colour to the "keep calm and carry on" poster to tie things together.
2) sanded/stained/painted the change table. This was a piece we used to have in our old apartment as a kitchen island. We finished it to compliment the crib.
3)I repurposed an old bed skirt (from a queen sized bed) for the crib bed skirt.
4) the boxes under the change table are bankers boxes that I covered in faux alligator vinyl.
5)the curtains are from ikea and sewed the orange ribbon on top to tie it into the wallpaper.
the wallpaper; the light; the glider (Rena by bestchairs) and the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster.
Use what you love!
