A cute space for our little one
It started with the Heather Bailey crib bedding, which set the tone for the color choices in the room
The general idea was to keep things simple since it's a small room. I tried to create a practical and modern space with light grey walls and white furniture while keeping a warm feminine touch with Heather Bailey fabrics, which
I used to make a few things myself. The crib bedding was custom made by TheClassCrib, found on etsy and I bought some fabric to make a pillow cover, lampshade, laundry bag and curtain.
I mixed some Ikea and Modo furniture, with some older possessions like the west elm rug and cool Etsy finds. Also, I had to work with an ugly a/c window unit and old fashion radiator. I didn't want to invest in a radiator cover, so I chose to use the existing heater as a display shelf for a cute etsy fox. I did the same thing with the a/c unit, which hosts my old matryoshkas.
I really like the crib for its modern look and nice quality and the dresser for its simple lines and affordable price. The tree wall decal is also a favorite!
Use what you already have and mix it up! I feel it looks more interesting and personal when you mix different brands and use some personal items you already own.
