- A Project For: Hudson
- Age: 6 weeks
- Location: Winnipeg, Canada
Aqua, grass green and white, modern nursery. . Custom fabrics chosen are not traditional baby motifs but instead fun and modern. The room can be used for many years and will grow with Hudson as he goes from toddler to little boy!
My favorite color is aqua, which reminds me of the color of the Ocean in Jamaica where I was married and honeymooned. I knew this would be the main color for the nursery regardless of gender, just the accent color would change. The grass green is so fresh and current and just says "boy", so that was an easy choice.
The feature wall was a way to bring character to the room that wouldn't need to be changed when the room is redecorated.
We repurposed a dresser by painting it, and pulled a chair from another room in the house as a reading chair. The branch and bird wall decal gives the room a touch of whimsy, and is easily removable. The shelves and book case are a great place to store books and stuffed animals, and doubles as a change table while needed.
Paint colors: Benjamin Moore (cloud white, Jack Frost, dark celery)
Wall Decal is from "Styleywalls", the custom bedding was from "tip toe studio", and the owl pillow from "circus Peanuts" all from Etsy. The bird mobile was also purchased on Etsy from "eat2002". I loved purchasing as much as possible from independent vendors.
The area rug was from paylessrugs.com, it is a surya wool shag. The crib is an oeuf crib from Polka Dot Peacock. The shelves are the lack shelves from Ikea. The book case is from West Elm.
My favorite item is the Oeuf Sparrow Crib.
My advice is to chose a design that isn't typical "baby", as kids grow so fast you want a design that will still work 5 years down the road.
