If you can believe it, this room is my minimalist approach to styling. I thought it was a calm and subdued space, but I can see from the images that I've managed to create another colorful, eclectic room. I put together this room before our baby was born and we did not know the gender, so I wanted to keep it neutral...but as you can see I'm not a neutral kind of girl...when it comes to colors at least. It started with a bright, gallery white canvas and the colors evolved to include a lot of turquoise, bright orange and red. I love it! My husband said that if it had any more feminine elements it could be too girly, but right now it's just right!
This room used to be a desert green color, but I wanted to freshen it up with a bright white. We've kept the handmade palette daybed in the room for comfort.
I moved the hello sunshine sign that I made years ago from above our bed to above the IKEA crib. We ended up with a sea theme without really trying; the mobile is a thrift store find, the ship is a black pirate ship kite from Bali that I painted white (this took dayyyyssss) and all of the other items are collected from travels around the world. There is a postcard from Morocco, stuffed seahorse and loteria board from Mexico City, star and moon porcelain ceramics from Paris, paper flying fish from Tokyo and more.
A favorite ornamental piece in his room is his framed feet and handprint from when he was 3 weeks old- that was tricky to do...hence why there is only one hand!
