Quinn’s Stokke Sleepi Inspired Nursery


I usually stick to a theme, but this time (the 4th nursery I've designed for my own kids), I decided to add any and all colors that caught my eye and pieces that I gravitated towards. There's a hint of a theme in the sun, clouds and rain pieces - "you are my sunshine", but it's mostly reminiscent of favorites, including all of my favorite children's books, favorite art that my older children made for me and the baby and my favorite colors.

Design Inspiration

The Stokke Sleepi in gray was my ultimate inspiration. I had been dreaming of owning this crib since my second son in 2007 and when I finally decided to get it, there was only one gray Sleepi left (as it had been discontinued). Once I owned it, it sparked the inspiration for the whole room, from the paint color to the accent colors and key pieces - from furniture to accents.

Decorating Style

Eclectic and DIY for this nursery, but I typically lean towards Craftsman.
