Think beyond the typical blue boy room.
My inspiration for Canaan's room stems from the big stuffed hound dog which belonged to my husband as a child. He got this dog after undergoing a major surgery at the age of four.
Vintage (old school) with a touch of modern.
Canaan's room is designed to be a nursery/guest room. The sofa turns into a bed which comes in handy when we have out-of-towners visit. I wanted to keep his room simple so I went with a clean cut crib with a plain brown sheet. The canvas above his changing table/dresser was painted by myself and the hanging yarn ball mobile along with the seven foot curtains were also DIY projects. The adorable Canaan sign on the mirror and the cute wall art above the crib were gifted to me by my lovely mom and sisters, which they purchased from Etsy.
I love everything about Canaan's room but if I have to narrow it down to one thing, I would say the Canaan sign. I feel like it adds a lot of unique character to his nursery.
Keep it simple; adding too much just clutters the space. Also, make it special by including your own childhood items such as toys, animals, books, etc.
