Our rainbow baby is due this summer and we could not be more excited to bring he or she Earthside and home safely in our arms. We wanted to make the baby's room a calm, peaceful space that felt light and airy. I am a big fan of the Scandinavian style for it's simplistic minimal design, functionality and overall neutral colour palette. We don't know the sex of our baby, and even if we did, I wouldn't change a dang thing in this room. White was our main colour inspiration, then we added some natural wood accents, textured neutrals, and a hint of black. I made the wreath for above the crib, and love how it adds a whimsical element and greenery.
Our first purchases for the room were the round jute rug and macrame crib skirt. I fell in love with them a few years ago and thought that they'd be a great way to set the tone for the room.
The hardest purchase was definitely our glider. There are so many out there to choose from and we had a hard time finding one that was the perfect size, height (for hubby), colour, and silhouette. It was the last thing we purchased for the room and I am happy we waited until we found the right one - and it was on sale, to boot!
We worked on this room slowly over the whole pregnancy. We acquired and added small details here and there and one piece would help inspire the next. I originally thought I wanted a larger dresser, but we went with a smaller one. I think the room might have felt too Tetris'd with furniture had we have chosen the larger size. It's not a very big room, after all!
A few favourite details in the room are the agate knobs on the closet doors, the wooden village and the pom pom curtains.
I had a bit too much fun creating this space, and am so giddy to see it all put together! My husband, Phill, put in hours of hard work painting, cleaning, assembling, and installing everything. So much love went into this space, and I can't wait to see our little one grow up in it!
