Name: Liam (15 months)
Location: Lima, Perú

I had so much fun creating this room for my sweet nephew. The room itself is small so we went for a simple, serene but modern space. My sister chose the color scheme: teal and grey with some pops of orange, and white furniture.

When choosing furniture we were careful to pick versatile pieces that will grow with my nephew and could adjust to his future needs with just a few tweaks. We chose a Eames rocking chair replica and a crib that converts to a kid bed. We also had a dresser custom made {it was hard to find a dresser we liked in Lima} with a changing pad on top {strapped to it} to be used as a changing table.

While we waited for the furniture to arrive we started off by painting the three walls in the room {the fourth side are floor to ceiling windows}. We painted two walls a grey color and the other wall white. We made this the accent wall by adding some triangle vinyl decals.

The rest of the room came together with some personal touches and DIY projects. We didn't want to clutter the room with many accessories so we kept it simple. We strategically placed some decorative shelving above the changing table and some more shelving next to the closet.

I sewed a crib sheet and a changing pad cover with some cute fabric from Etsy. With the remaining of both fabrics I made a pennant to hang above the dresser. I also made a cloud pillow and strung some felt balls to make a garland. The garland went on top of the only artwork in the room, which I found in a department store in Lima while looking for something else.

Since we placed all the furniture against the walls the idea was to anchor the space with a big area rug but for many reasons we ended up with a much, much smaller rug which serves as a play area for L. We may upgrade to a bigger rug soon.

We were very pleased with the final space: a simple but cheerful and modern room. I'm sure we'll be tweaking it as Liam grows but so far he has been enjoying it.
