- A Project For: Freda Maria
- Age: 2 months
- Location: Pennsylvania
This is my daughter Freda Maria's room..We started this project as soon as we found out she was a girl. I spent lots of time sitting in there waiting for her to arrive.
I wanted something clean & modern with lots of contrast for visual stimulation. I also wanted the wall color to be versatile so that as she grew older she can pick from many color schemes to change up her room. I also tried to incorporate as much storage space as I could with the shelving & baskets.
The wall color is warm grey flannel by Glidden. It had the primer mixed in which was fabulous.The walls were green & blue & the new paint covered in one coat. The bedding is Summer Infant Twilight Garden. It is organic cotton & can be found online. Furniture is Babies R Us. The wall decal was ordered thru Layla Grace. It was easy to apply (& remove since we changed her name at the last minute & ordered a new one )The prints over the crib were ordered thru Etsy.com They allow you to pick your print in any color you like. I framed them myself.
I love the bedding. The room was built off of that. It was hard at first to resist the urge to go pink but we are very happy with how it turned out. I also love the shelving on the walls which hold all the little trinkets & gifts Freda was given by friends & family before she arrived.
Pick the one thing you absolutely must have & build from there. Resist the urge to fill up every inch. You will want room to add new things.Think of function & what will attract your babies attention.We had an empty space directly across from her crib were we simple added a full length mirror so she can see herself.
