    I love it! It’s so calming and different and something the baby can grow with! My only suggestion would to get a mobile that plays music OR have something in there that will play music, it can be a lifesaver.

    The autumn colors that you used make this room very unique and one-of-a-kind. And not only that, the colors are really relevant to your lives, so it’s really a great thing.
