David’s Nest


Neutral, cheerful, cozy room, suitable for both genders and easily adaptable to any age.

Design Inspiration

My husband's and my love of nature. It started with making the branch on the wall. The rest of the decoration came naturally.

Decorating Style

Mix and match, comfy, detailed.

Project Details

Lamp: a Japanese paper ball lamp covered with triangles of the same wrapping papers used to build the branch.
Diaper changer: painted an originally brown changer white, made the curtains and the changer cover with the bird embroidery.

Crib: painted the crib from our 11 year old niece in matte white.
Curtains: made the green bows.
