When designing Atticus' nursery we dreamt of something neutral with pops of color. We also wanted to stay true to our own style, creating a room that we would love to spend time in that was both mature but also fun and baby appropriate. Our home is a mix of vintage and modern, so we loved combining old and new furniture pieces to create an eclectic balance. The room has a relaxed vibe that will make nursing and story time a more peaceful, calming experience.
Years ago, long before we owned our home or had even begun to think about having children, I read a blog piece about an artist that collaborates with her 4-year old daughter. I was taken with these whimsical portraits, and ordered them for my someday-maybe nursery. They became the first inspiration for Atticus' room and we built from there.
Our first piece of furniture was the Babyletto Hudson Crib a gift from my mother. I struggled for the longest time to find a bedding set that really went with both the crib and the portraits. When I stumbled upon the Little Auggie Robot March crib sheet everything started to fall into place. I refinished an old dresser I picked up on Craigslist and a baby chair that was in my husband's bedroom growing up to add our desired pop of color. The whole room has a fun funky feel that we are really happy with.
