My Room: Aden

Cerritos, CA

Sean and his wife created a "space wonderland" for their son in a space much smaller than a spaceship! Sean tells us more: Before baby Aden was born, my wife and I had a hard time trying to figure out what to do with an 10' x 8' room (which used to be wife's dressing room) that we decided to use for the nursery.

We serendipitously found space themed DwellStudio bedding at Target on clearance. The bedding inspired us to create a space wonderland for Aden. We painted the walls blue/green and added orange accents. We also bought the crib from Target (DwellStudio edition) to complement our modern sensibilities.

The window treatments and crib skirts were graciously made by mother-in-law using the same space themed blankets. The wooden mobile was a gift from my manager from his European travels. The wooden letters/nuzzles were bought from Etsy (search for nuzzles). We did splurge a bit on getting the Herman Miller Eames rocker.

I am glad the nursery turned out ok considering the space constraints. Hopefully our baby will have fun and be happy at his new digs.

Thanks Sean!
