Description

Our mission with this nursery was to create a fun, functional space that was true to our personalities. A lot of time and thought went into each and every detail. We had DIY projects, we re-purposed old furniture and shopped for unique items to use as accessories. We placed an emphasis on developing a place that will inspire Milo to be the creative, fun-loving child we hope him to be and we did it!

Design Inspiration

Eclectic. Our inspiration came from several sources but ultimately our goal was to create a room that represented our personalities and something we had never seen before.

Decorating Style

An odd eclectic blend of Nautical meets Mid-Century Modern.

Favorite Items

The Rocking Chair! This was by far the most uncomfortable decision we made and it ended up adding so much to the room.

Advice

1) Be Patient. It took a good 6 months, and many weekends devoted to complete this room. We went to thrift stores, markets and online to find pieces that we felt were perfect and affordable for this room.

2) Be Bold. Don't be afraid to mix colors, patterns and textures.

3) Don't sell yourself short. We are not professional designers or contractors. If you have a vision and have the patience you will be surprised at what you can do on your own.
