This room is a result of lots of love and inspiration. I wanted something rustic, but modern, with a few vintage and whimsical touches.
The feature wall was my inspiration! I really wanted a wall of reclaimed wood, but unsure of where to start or how to go about it, I started researching online and found this fabulous wallpaper. It did the trick and is probably a little more practical for a baby's room. I also really loved the navy, lime green, and orange color palette. Found the drapes at PBKids and went from there.
My style changes from room to room depending on the inspiration and my mood. This is my first boy after three girls, so I definitely wasn't going for "gender neutral." I had fun making a little boy's room!
Bedding: Modified Dot from Etsy, Drapes: PBKids, Glider: Target online, Rug: Overstock, wallpaper from www.interiorplace.com, "Manners Make the Man" print and "I Like to Rock" print from Etsy, I made the "Z" marquee letter over the crib- easier than I thought it would be! Paint: Benjamin Moore- Perennial and Kennsington Blue
I love the framed print of the photograph I took of my dad's painter's palette from the 1950's.... has a lot of sentimental value. Also the framed Tiger's championship tshirt that was my husband's as a child, and the sock monkey that someone made for him when he was a baby. Oh, and the mini "jersey" hanging from the shelf- has my husband's high school basketball number on it:) My favorite items tend to be things that have soul. Although that Z was just recently made by me and that's up there as a fav too. I really wanted to splurge on an old vintage marquee sign, but I found a DIY how-to on Pinterest. Saved a lot of money and it was fun to make. A fun pop when you walk in!
Don't be afraid to use things not as they were intended to be used! The metal orange bucket piece hanging off the door to the attached bathroom was purchased in the gardening section of Home Goods. I knew immediately when I saw it that I wanted to use it as storage for baby items, mainly because I wanted to bring a touch of orange to that side of the room- mirroring the glider it's hanging across from.
