As an artist mom-to-be and lover of design, baby's room provided me with the perfect blank slate to express my love for midcentury vintage finds, simple Scandinavian lines and crisp modern details!
Inspired by a cool color palette of grey and aqua combined with a love for animals and warm wood tons. I wanted to create a baby friendly space that was not too focused on a single theme. Each piece has meaning, from the 1950's vintage dresser to the teak stemmed table lamp and Saarinan Tulip ottoman I recovered in a bold chevron print. Bright pops of color from the Blabla hand knit circus mobile to the giant giraffe add a bit of whimsy to the space! The ceiling fixture creates a soft light while the faux bois silk shade really plays off the woodland animals like the deer photo taken by my father that I blew up and framed in a rounded corner Ikea Frame. The natural birch Ikea crib and bookcase keep things clean and work well with the oh-so comfortable rocking chair's cool wooden base.
I love to combine old and new! I generally focus on clean simplistic lines and soft neutral colors.

I love the Vintage dresser! I woke up early to scout it out at a yard sale, it's the perfect size and something that my son can use for years to come! I also love the deer print, it has a lot of meaning, as it was taken by my father a few years ago, I love that baby will have a bit of family history to gaze at!
Pick things as you go, it's amazing how one find will influence another. Let your design happen organically instead of rushing out and getting everything at once from one store, I think it's more fun that way too!
