Ivy's Modern Matryoshka Room

My Room

Name: Ivy (8 months)
Location: Richmond, VA

When I found out I was having a girl, decorating her room was top on my to-do list. The first thing I purchased for Ivy's room was a vintage wrought iron bed which can be used for late nights, early mornings, or just cuddling. Next up was the teal Matryoshka doll fabric which became the inspiration for the rest of the room.

You can see that fabric, or a variation, throughout the room, as well as other Matryoshka doll touches. I couldn't decide between modern, vintage, or eclectic so I incorporated a bit of each. There are lots of one-of-a-kind and handmade pieces and a few hand-me-down's from her big brother's room. Ivy loves hanging out in her room, and I am pretty sure it's also my favorite room in our house.

Thanks, Carrie!
