Jacob's room is a lovely mix of old and new, bought and found. Liza tells us a bit more: This room was inspired by the vintage animal prints found in Asheville, NC at The Screen Door and the striped fabric in the crib bedding called "Circus Stripes."

It is a mixture of new, vintage and re-purposed pieces, several of which were hand-made with love. My mother-in-law made all of the crib bedding, and a good friend re-finished the beautiful blue changing table (it used to be a liquor cabinet--my husband got for free many years ago). We recovered the chair, and the pillow was made from an old flour sack which came from Papua, New Guinea, where my husband grew up. The curtains and mobile are from IKEA, and everything else is a collection from all over.

Thanks Liza!
