My Room: Muller Grey

Portland, OR

This beautiful room appeals to an adult sensibility, but is a calm, welcoming spot for a baby. Kati shares: The room is tiny and we just wanted a serene space full of special things. We painted the room a dove grey (grey is my favorite color and one of my favorite words) with white trim and we used Muller's older sister's crib and dresser (from Walmart three years ago) with a simple cream colored organic fitted sheet instead of a fancy bedding set.

The bird mobile is from Anthropologie. The photo above his crib is one of my own (it's of his dad and sister holding sea shells). The print above his dresser was drawn by his great-grandfather decades ago. The poms might be overplayed, but he loved them so much from his big sister's birthday party that I had to put them in his room. He's got an antique hutch that was mine as a child full of board books with a Pottery Barn Kids bird light on top, along with a ceramic hand and foot print and his first pair of Minnetonkas. He's got a vintage wooden skateboard with roller derby wheels along with beachy coral, a special rattle, and a special horseshoe on the window sills. Other throws and pillows were from West Elm. The rocker was from Kmart.

Thanks Kati! Readers, you can probably guess that Kati is a photographer by profession - if you're in the Portland area, check out her site of beautiful family and child photography.
