AT and my imagination.
What inspired you?
Go with your instincts.
Due to the smallness of the room and very busy schedules, we had decided against spending time, energy, or money to decorate the nursery. But, then, at the last minute, with two weeks to go until my due date, the decorating fever hit me. I wanted a look that was simple and clean, but very upbeat and refreshing.
Crib is hand-me-down from my sister in law and can transition into a bed. Changing table (which can eventually be used as a desk) was found on the street, painted a high gloss white, and adorned with new orange and pink drawer pulls.
Mural was conceived and executed free hand. Birds are from a stencil and were done on paper and attached to wall for a "relief" or 3-D effect. Crib bedding is from Target, lamp from DWR, wind chime from Flensted, and rug from Crate and Barrel. (And, had money not been an object, we would have purchased the Monarch Nursery chair in white or raspberry, as it is one of the only nursery chairs compact enough to fit in the room!)
