This is Jovie's Nest. It's full of bright colors and and shapes for Jovie to enjoy as she lives and learns.
I was inspired by a vintage birdcage that I found at a garage sale in town. I started collecting birdcages after I found that one and the idea sort of grew from there.
Vintage Modern Eclecticism. JK. I am not certain how to describe my decorating style. I love clean modern pieces mixed with vintage and antique pieces. Add a dash of sculptural art found objects and a sprinkle of happy accidents and I have a house that I feel is home.
The crib, bookshelf, dresser, rocker, and light fixtures are all from Ikea. The birdcages are found pieces that I had been collecting from various tradeshows, flea markets, garage sales, etc. The rug was found at Lowe's for a really good price. The aspen trees were painted by my mother and I using just Kilz for the white, generic black pait and some Folk Art acryllic paint for the leaves (which we stenciled onto the wall and then outlined with a Sharpie). The cardinals were also stenciled. All of the frames behind the crib are collected pieces from various stores and I painted pictures of animals and birds with acrylic paint. The silhouettes are of my husband and I. The bedding was made by a friend of mine (www.darlingduecedesigns.com)
The birdcages. Absolutely. No. The mural. It was so much fun to paint and really easy, too. I also really like the animal montage behind the crib. I'm kinda proud of it all!
Have fun with it! The whole room could EASILY be simulated and if you aren't loving the idea of painting your own aspen tree murals, you can find wall stickers online all over the place that look almost exactly like these paintings! Just use Google!
