I love interior design, DIY projects and all things baby! However, I found myself getting frustrated with the "boxed" nursery choices that are out there, and I wanted a room that exuded calmness. My daughter's nursery was a budget-friendly challenge that I was excited to take on. I knew I didn't want to spend a fortune, but I wanted it to look high-end. I splurged on the dresser at $600, bedding and curtains totaling $400, but everything else is either a DIY project, bargain find or re-purposed item.
My entire inspiration for this room was based on three silver owl hooks that I found at World Market long before I even knew I was pregnant. I knew I wanted to incorporate owls without it being "owl-themed" and it just evolved to what it was. I also knew I wanted to incorporate the alphabet since it it a baby's room but I didn't want it to look juvenile.
I would say my style leans toward Modern Traditionalism. I love the traditional style but in modern colors and patterns.
My favorite item is the owl mobile. I spent several days putting this together and it was well worth it! Just watching my daughter gaze up at the owls with amazement brightens my day!
