Most nurseries today are outfitted in generic pieces and collections that are purchased or registered for. I tried to dig, scope and extract items and elements that were right here at home & my families' homes that were rich in our family history and culture. The result: a room with great meaning and a comfortable setting, all the while eco-friendly.
Nursery created from scratch; using personal, family and recycled items: handmade bedding, pillows and unique toys. Toy chest and rocking horse passed down in family (re-painted, touched up), Austrian crystal chandelier was her great grandmothers, chair was salvaged after 25 years in a garage with new fabric and wood treatments. Wall hangings are photo copies from a book, outfitted in frames taken from another room. Framed photo of the late grandmother she was named after, Katerina. Items brand new: Crib, Mirror, Dresser, wall decal, baby girl!
Thanks Nikki & Katerina!
