You can't help but feel renewed and energized by Gabriella's springy, garden-themed room. Her mom, Ella, describes: We moved into our first home in January (ufff - the coldest month) and I was so excited about doing my daughter's nursery, who was 4-months-old at the time. I couldn't wait for spring so I decided to bring a garden feel right into her room.

I painted a ladybug for her on a small canvas which was another inspiration for the room. We painted a soft blue on the top part of the wall and ceiling for the sky and the bottom part of the wall green for the grass. I added artificial grass and flowery/ bug wooden pieces to the wall for a touch of whimsy and fun.

I also saw the Artist in her and created an 'artist's wall' on one side of the room. We used a magnetic strip to hang a roll of craft paper - this is fun to get creative and draw or finger paint. We can even use this space to hang her art work or photos as well.

It's a great lively space that's always fun to be in.

Thanks Ella and Gabriella!
