A modern, sophisticated nursery custom designed by Mommy and Daddy!
Planning to move overseas by Baby's first Birthday, we designed the nursery with travel in mind, and we're also inspired by Dr. Suess' book Oh, The Places You'll Go!
Daddy did the modern wainscoting treatment (2x2 boards painted and nailed to the wall) on the walls to add dimension to the small space. Mountain painting was designed and painted by Mommy and Daddy. Quote and embroidery circles done by Mommy and all linens custom designed and created by Grandma! Nearly all the furniture (crib, changing table, trunk, and globe) came from Craigslist, which helped to make the room very budget friendly!
I am in love with the quilt that Grandma hand stictched. It will be something we will cherish forever. The antique travel chest is a fun element, and I think the hanging lanterns worked out perfectly as the light treatment in the room (they are on a dimmer switch so we can do diaper changes in the middle of the night without turning on a bright light)
My best advice is to make the room unique to you! Nearly every aspect of the room has special meaning to us. It took us a while to piece it all together, but we are happy we were patient. Think outside the box and enjoy the process!
