We wanted something clean and simple with just pops of colors against browns and whites. When we found out we were having a girl, we tried to stick to pinks and greens. We wanted the room to feel organic and have touches of nature with just small hints of whimsy. Since this room is our Master Retreat, we added french doors to create some privacy and a sound barrier for Naia. We also added built-ins around the fireplace so Naia could have a "closet" and room for storage.
The room started with the vintage dresser we found at a local antique store. It had already been "green-washed" so we tried to find a natural looking brown color for the walls to match. We knew once we had that in place, we wanted the rest of the furniture to be white. We got lucky by finding the crib and changing table at garage sales, which helped add to the eclectic look. I knew I wanted to tie in some burlap from our wedding that we had used as table runners. With some left over material I was able to create the memory board and a pouf style ottoman for the nursing chair. The rest of the room we decorated with cues from nature: hand sewn bird mobile, 3D butterfly mural, bee and butterfly art.
Our style is somewhat vintage, but with modern touches and nothing too "cutesy."
Almost everything in the room was DIY or found at vintage stores or garage sales.
