A Minimalist Meets Multicolored Nursery

My Room

Name: "Lentil"
Location: Toronto, ON

My husband Kevin and I are expecting our first child, a boy we're nicknamed Lentil. We've had so much fun putting together his room - something I've been looking forward to for years (maybe even before Kevin and I met?) When your entire life is about to change and the concept of control and planning is about to largely go out the window, having a project like this where you CAN prepare and plan is such a wonderfully calming thing for any control freak.

I love the minimalist-meets-multicolored thing that's emblematic of the Scandinavian aesthetic, and I've long been a sucker for vintage kids' books with really fun graphic illustrations. I try to resist and not to go too color crazy in the rest of our house, so having a fun little room where I can go wild was great.

Anchoring the space with lots of wood, black, and white gave a nice neutral background for all the brights that come with kids' stuff. And if for some reason he turns out to be a she, great, fine - everything will still work.

I love our little guy's room and can't wait to meet him and spend many, many, many hours in here - it's such a happy space.
