Let’s see…Who’s cuter the baby or the nursery? Well the baby of course but Sadie’s Mom and Dad did a superb job in making the nursery too! The most impressive aspect? It’s mostly handmade. From the contemporary crib to the creative tree branch art, this goes to show us that homemade doesn’t have to look overly “homey.”
Child’s name: Sadie
Age: 8 months
Location: Victoria, BC
What was your inspiration for the room?
Woodland animals and nature, with a foundation of modern design and colors that would be suitable for either gender, as we weren’t sure if we were having a boy or girl. The furniture was designed and built by my husband and me. I also made the curtains, quilt, and flower pillow.
What best describes your decorating style?
Please share with us your choice of paint colors, furniture, art, diy tips, etc.
We chose neutral colors, Ralph Lauren’s Edwardian Linen for the walls and Cobblestone for the furniture (accented with white). The Eames rocker added the contemporary element we were looking for. And as mentioned earlier, my husband and I designed and built the crib and change table.
What is your favorite item(s) in the room?
I love the rug, which I got from a small shop in Victoria’s chinatown called Fan Tan Gallery. I also like the tree branch on her wall with little wool birds hanging from it.
Is there anything else you would like PN readers to know?
I actually scavenged the tree branch after a windstorm! then I painted it brown and nailed it to her wall. Every season, I add something new to it (ie. colored leaves in autumn).
