Starry Night



Words cannot describe how happy interior design makes me, mix kids decor in that and I am in heaven... If only it could turn into a career! Most of you are familiar with the Monochrome nursery I did back before Dom was born, for those wandering what the F happened to it...we moved back in November and had to leave it behind. However, it was bittersweet because here we are sharing another project with you again!!

I cant say that my planning process was an easy one... last time I knew the theme right away and then just shopped around for decor with that theme in mind. This time around, I knew I wanted to step out of my comfort zone by adding a little more color juussssst a little! lol and of course make it FUN because Dom is such a fun & energetic kid, and he needed a space with a little more spunk. I really wasn't clear on the theme until about a month ago when I stumbled across The Lovely Wall Co and their BEAUTIFUL wall decals. Starry Night was the name of the collection that caught my eye. One thing Petey said he wanted to see in the room were more stars so this one was perfect, so perfect I decided to jack the name for the nursery too lol.

The accent corner with the Sprinkle decals is defiantly my favorite, looking at it now I wish i would have done the triangle the opposite way, it would have made for a pretty cute backdrop. This was the first part of the room that we started on and my idea for an accent wall completely changed once i starred at the wall for 5 minutes lol. We originally were going to make the wall to the left the accent with overlapping squares and i changed my mind last minute. We did the triangle by simply using painters tape to make the lines and then painted along them. small tip: make sure your REALLY press down on the tape so it grabs onto the wall as close as it can, we had a few spots that bled through causing the line to not be so crisp.

Isn't that little flag garland just THE cutest?! That's what lead me to a decision on the colors, i absolutely loved the color palate. (this specific color is sold out but i did tag one that is similar) I may snag a few more because I think it looks lonely by itself. I recently discovered Scandiborn and made it my new go-to for kids stuff, literally everything is so cute & unique. I am SO excited to say that i will be giving away one of their beanbags that you all were in love with so head to my Instagram to enter that!

I'm sure you've noticed by now but I have a strong love for Babyletto furniture, for this room I knew I wanted a bookshelf because Dom LOVES his books, like really loves them... maybe it has something to do with the fact that I started reading to him when he was 3 days old? He was mesmerized...(lmk if you wanna see the pic from that moment lol its super cute) we have moments where we leave him playing in his room and all of a sudden he is so quiet... we go to see what he's doing and he is literally just looking at his books by himself, it melts my heart! Start reading to your babes young!

We are renting the house we are in so we unfortunately wont get to enjoy this space for very long.. this was a big factor in the whole design process because i wanted to do something fun but also didn't want to do anything too permanent and the fact that the decals are removable was a game changer, i can even save some for the next room if i wanted!

I loved creating this space, it was so cute to watch Dom walk into it for the first time... I should have recorded it! This has definitely become a new passion of mine, I plan on sharing all of the spaces I design & hope you will all follow along and be inspired to create your own. I hope you guys like this one as much as the first!! Let me know your thoughts :D

Don't forget to find me on Instagram @betweenthebabes and enter my GIVEAWAY, one person will WIN some of the items featured in this room!!  You can also find exclusive coupons on my blog post as well as the paint color i used, keep in mind these photos were taken in low light so a little editing had to be done to brighten the room up a bit so the paint does look a little lighter than it is in real life.
