Alice's nursery reflects our lifestyle: simple, economical, functional and full of DIY projects. Like every room in our little home, mostly furnished with vintage finds, we adapted our design style based on the pieces that we carefully selected on the internet, in secondhand stores and in yard sales.
It was important to us that our daughter's bedroom be as eco-friendly as possible but without breaking the bank. The low-VOC paint used for the walls and the furniture, the choice of material (wood, bamboo, wool, etc.), the priority given to secondhand objects and the minimalist approach regarding purchases were always considered during this long yet fun process.
From the artwork, it is obvious that we focused on cheerful colours but set in a neutral colour background. We also wanted her room to be easy to change as she grows older (e.g. changing table into regular dresser, crib into a toddler bed).
We also had a blast making easy DIY projects: the front-facing book shelves, the big bilingual painting, the elephant cushion, etc. Alice's grand-mother also participated by sewing a beautiful quilt and knitting a cuddly brown bear.
Alice loves her room :)
