What’s All the Hoopla About?

Every nursery needs some details added to walls, right? The first thing we tend to run to is a framed piece of art, framed photo or possibly a canvas. When I design a room, I also like to bring in other wall elements that add visual interest. It’s a design opportunity to bring in bold colors and fun patterns. I love the trend of using embroidery hoop wall art in the nursery. This darling display of wall decor is something you can whip up with a few inexpensive embroidery hoops and fabric scraps. Want to fancy it up a little? Add in some hand stitching. Here’s some inspiration to get you started.

Now it’s time to go make some. There are a thousand ways to recreate your own version. Start fresh or tell a story by using vintage pillow cases, handkercheifs or baby blankets that have been passed down.

    Something I have always wanted to do! I am still in the process of collecting pretty fabrics that would give the wall a pop of colors that are also cohesive.

    Ladies, does anyone know where the chests from the third and also from the last photos are from? Where can I buy them?

    If you click on the links below the images, you’ll find more details about the room. Looks like the third pic is an Ikea Malm 6-drawer dresser, and the last is Hemnes from Ikea. I hope you have an Ikea near you!
