This room has many personalized items, along with some items available at local retailers. I wanted to give my little one a room that was fun and whimsical, but that would also be a great place to grow, and I had a limited budget to work with. These photos were just taken with my iPhone, so the quality doesn't really do the room justice, but you'll get the idea. ;)
I love owls, butterflies and trees and wanted to bring a sense of nature and whimsy to Marin's room. I have many hand-made elements that were made just for Marin with love, and they bring a sense of intimacy to the room. I also wanted a room that could grow with Marin, and easily transition to a toddler play space for her, wehen the time comes.
Ecclectic - I'd like to be modern, but I also use a lot of traditional and vintage items.
There are some DIY tutorials I created along the way at mintnclandycreate.blogspot.com
A few of my favorite elements are the homemade quilt/bumper, homemade butterfly lamp, homemade batik painting, homemade tissue-paper wall art and vintage book page. Many of these tutorials can be found at mintnclandycreate.blogspot.com
Work from your heart. My desire was to create a space for Marin that was both unique and personal. I had a limited budget, so I had to be creative with my projects, but I am thrilled with the room. It's still a work in progress, but I feel like it is a breath of fresh air!
