Where the Wild Thing Sleeps
The entire room is inspired by the Maurice Sendak book, “Where the Wild Things Are”. I wanted my son to have a space he can grow with, encourages his imagination, play, adventure, and of course, reading! Nothing encapsulates all those things more than the childhood book that I grew up with, “Where the Wild Things Are”.
My family and friends helped bring my vision to life with my mom making our son’s name, “Mac” above the closet using pages from the book and my Aunt, cutting out the silhouettes of the iconic characters. The mural was done by my very talented friend, Amber Bambler, https://www.amberbambler.com/, which really brought the room together and brought a coziness that one can only find through love and imagination.
My biggest piece of advice is to incorporate use of color, the old with the new, and try to put your own special touches from your childhood into the nursery. Have fun with your design and don’t be afraid to chose bold color choices!
