Mandy Ford’s “This Girl’s Life” just got a bit more complicated for the better on May 30th, 2008, with the arrival of twin boys Ben and Landon.
Kudos to Mandy’s on her choice of dark paint for the nursery: “Tree Branch” by Sherwin Williams. Mandy says she was going for “a subtle nature theme with owl accessories…the main colors being, sage green and chocolate brown, with aqua blue accents”.
We have to admit that the crib bedding found at Walmart has impressed us lately. We knew they are affordable, but had no idea that they offered such a modern, good-looking selection.
It’s all in the details, otherwise known as great accessories! The owl theme makes a sweet statement with an owl lamp from Urban Outfitters, owl bank from Target and cool owl rub ons for their wooden letters. Splashes of color brightens the room with a green clock from Restoration Hardware and aqua suitcases from Hobby Lobby.
Cherished family details include a little green rocker that was Mandy’s Dad’s when he was a boy, an antique corner cabinet passed down from Mandy’s parents and curtains made by Mandy’s mother-in-law which are to include brown ric-rac on the bottom, eventually. You know, when Mandy has a free moment! :)
All the best to the Ford Family! Enjoy your boys and their new room. – PN

Hi! Love the room. But would you say this paint color is a chocolatey brown or more of a taupe?

Sorry these replies are so late, but the dresser is from IKEA and can be found here:
It is an excellent piece. We actually use it in our bedroom now. I think the price has gone up though. :(
The bedding is from Walmart and I don't think it is sold anymore. The brand is NoJo. I actually just sold some of it in a yard sale unfortunately.

I LOVE the bedding and understand this post is about 3 years old but can you tell me the name of the bedding set? I'd like to see if I can track it down somewhere for my gender neutral nursery. Thank you!!!
