Name: Anja (6 months) Location: Burlington, MA This room is not large and doesn't get a lot of light; it is also a part-time guest room. Thus, it needed to be functional and cheery without feeling too crowded. I also tried to make it feminine but not excessively so. The room will change as Anja grows; eventually, we will replace the crib and changing table with a desk. The bed is low to the ground and will function well as a "big girl" bed (and also doesn't overwhelm the space, despite being a double), while also being comfortable for guests. The nursery was inspired by owl bedding from Target (Circo Love n Nature). We chose a pale, creamy yellow for the walls to make it easy to redecorate when Anja gets older and wants to change her bedding, curtains, art, etc. Source List: • bookcase, bed (Fjellse, painted white), dresser, side table (Roxo stool), cherry blossom prints, sconces, lamp, and changing table: IKEA • WalMart • curtains (discontinued), gingham bins and jewelry tree: aLand of Nod • toy bins: 3 Sprouts • Cape doll house: Melissa and Doug, • pink owl stuffed animal: April Foss • decals on the dresser: Elephannie • Actopus to Zelephant alphabet cards: Jenn Ski, • wooden owls: Maple Shade Kids • print of vintage erasers: Lisa Congdon • alarm clock: LL Bean • "The End" bookend: CB2 • rug (bound carpet remnant): Lowes • paint: Benjamin Moore Natura in Citronee (eggshell) Thanks Michele!
