Diana Claire’s Oz Nursery

I created this Oz nursery after one of my favorite movies, The Wizard of Oz. I used hints of the movie to create a cute theme for my newborn, but not super flashy. I DIY’d a few of the items to get the look I was going for. I tried to represent the movie in subtle ways: The shape on the lampshade is the Cowardly Lion’s metal, there is a heart clock above the door that looks like the TinMan’s, the pillows in the crib represent the witches, the mirrors represents “O” and the window that the Doorman talks through, the bumper has a rainbow dot pattern. I chose gray for her crib and dresser because of the vintage sepia in the beginning of the movie, I chose the blue wall color because of the “Over the Rainbow” song, the dots on the curtains represent Glinda’s bubbles, the emerald bow and hints of green represent the Emerald city (she was even born in May and has a Emerald birthstone!). Even if someone comes in the room and doesn’t get it at first, once I start explaining the picture comes together.
