Barrett is still on his way, but we bet he'd hurry up if he knew he had this creative room waiting for him. Lisa shares: I scoured the internet, including Ohdeedoh for inspiration for starts to get a rough idea for a general feeling I wanted to bring to the room! Then I made several idea boards until this one felt right...especially to my husband! He usually has no desire to give his input until it was a BOY nursery!
It is a combination of old and new and many treasures were hunted for which is always the time consuming part but the fun part! I wanted it to be an unexpected and unique space that was very fun and cheery!!
The green chair is a mid-century antique find that I had reupholstered (not free of headaches!). The chair is actually a rocker even though it doesn't look like it. The sheep rocker, I am embarrassed to say, landed on my front porch 4 months after we were married. We have now been married 7 years...I guess I had to have it although I am glad I did as the seller is now out of business. The wall color is Behr: Porpoise. The gray furniture is Ikea as well as the puppy dog tails on the wall.
The mobile was handmade by a friend and I incorporating balloons and yarn dipped in a solution similar to decoupage. The rug is DwellStudio. The bedding is custom designed by myself and most of it made by my Mom, including the "B" pillow. The "You are getting very sleepy" sign is from Sycamore Street Press. The gazelle on the wall is from Anthropologie. The drum lamp in the corner is from CB2.com and the dog lamp can be found by googling "Yellow dachsund lamp" as several sellers offer it. The red mirror, yellow side table, record album covers and all additional treasures on the shelf and wall are just that...vintage treasures hunted for one by one with love.
I wish you all could come sit in the room with me...it is a very happy place!
Thanks Lisa! Readers, see even more of Barrett's room at York Design.
