Ryder’s Room « previous return to gallery next » A Project For: Ryder Age: 11 days old Location: Toronto Ontario Canada Description: Modern Nursery. Design Inspiration: Initial inspiration was the Dwell Owl Crib Bedding. We used it to bring in the colours and hints of owls and a woodland theme. Decorating Style: Modern and bold. Project Details: We choose colours from the bedding. We were debating between blue and grey or the green and grey. We decided to break with the 'boy' tradition and go with the green.We taped out a large stripe all the way around the room and got chalkboard paint tinted a chocolate brown.To save money we had a new Ikea dresser sanded and stained to match the Oeuf crib. It worked out wonderfully.I found a picture of storage cubes in a magazine and had my husband recreate them. He did a fantastic job.I painted the artwork on the wall and them bought some frames on sale.The light was a steal... only $20!The Glider is oh so comfy, from Monte Design.The "r" decal is from Etsy.comThe bamboo mobile is from Petite College Favorite Items: The boxes, the bedding and the "r" decal Advice: Take a risk and shop wisely. We bought the $1000 crib secondhand off kijiji for less than half the price.
