Nursery rhymes mural inspired room
I had a book of nursery rhymes and fell in love with the illustrations. I had a mural painted of some of the images that I loved. I knew I would use this room as the nursery for any more children I had, so I made the walls and furniture gender neutral. The bedding and accessories make it girly
I like furniture with a traditional or vintage feel. I also like to mix old and new. They are little for so short of a time- I wanted to make the room look like a baby's nursery.
The nesting tables next to the glider were my grandmothers and I painted them white (they were dark brown). Bedding is by Serena & Lily and actually called "Ruby" too.
I love the little rocking chair. It was a gift when Ruby was born.
I knew I loved the illustrations from that nursery rhymes book and that was my starting point. After that, I found vintage feeling furniture and added accessories and bedding that didn't fight with the mural. Too much in this room could make it look way too busy!
