Our baby boy's room. I didn't plan on a theme, but an animal theme kind of emerged. I went more for complimenting styles and colors.
I wanted it to be as boy as possible without being based on a theme or to babyish.
Vintage Modern. We love clean lines and the simplicity of modern but I love to add character with color and vintage items that tell a story.
The biggest challenge of this project was painting the stripes at 7 months pregnant. :) It was a labor of love and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I started with the color pallete and crib and worked my way from there. I made the pipe shelving unit after seeing something similar online, I made all the crib bedding and the slipcover and pillow for the chair. The only thing that was purchased new was his crib and all the other stuff was thrifted, made, or we already had. I love thrifting and finding things I can reinvent like the vintage dresser that I stripped and painted. I also bargain shop, which is how I found the rug at a local Crate and Barrel outlet. I feel like things don't have to cost a lot to look great. Also from experience with this project and a lot of my client projects I know it is better to wait for what is perfect than settle for something you only kind of like.
I can't say I have a favorite item, but I wouldn't be able to give up anything in the room either. :)
Do what you love! Look for inspiration and turn it into something that reflects you. I love looking at all the beautiful rooms online but in the grand scheme of things I do what makes me happy even if nobody else likes it. It's my house and I have to live there. This is what I always tell my clients.
