Description

This is our son's Haines's Alaska-Inspired Nursery. Complete with details that highlight the great state as well as a few DIY touches that my husband and I worked on to help realize our vision of a cozy cottage in the mountains.

Design Inspiration

We went with a masculine rustic theme with this nursery. After living in Alaska for 4 years, we fell in love with the people and the beautiful state. I think it would be safe to say that my husband is and always will be "obsessed" with Alaska. The day we moved was a sad sad day for him, so I thought a rustic Alaska-Inspired nursery for his baby boy would go over well to say the least.

Decorating Style

I would describe my decorating style as "sophisticated whimsy". When it comes to kids spaces, I like to think outside the box and work with accent items that I would use to decorate in the rest of my home, then add touch of whimsical baby/kid friendly accents throughout. This helps keep a cohesive look without the room becoming too overwhelming.

The Wood Wall - I new I wanted a wood treatment, however, I wanted something different and the stripes made for a unique display.

Advice

If you have a theme in mind for a baby/kids space, don't be afraid to add accent pieces that are "adult" for lack of a better word. It will make for easier tradition down the road and it will give the space a sophisticated feel.

    Can you tell me what the straight wall mount is called that you used to hang the lanterns or where you got them? Also, about how big around is the jute rope that you hung them with? Thanks!

    Love all of it! Where did you get the animal head cut-outs? (I hope you know what I’m saying, I can’t think of another way to explain them!) :-D

    Where did you get the deer head/initial pillow? I’ve been looking at Etsy, but can’t find something similar. Thanks!

    Where did you get the pinecones for the corner shelves? I have looked everywhere but not having any luck!
