Kristina sent us photos of her son Rheon's creatively designed room. She says: Having just gotten married months before Rheon's arrival, we were facing two challenges when planning the nursery: a tight budget and a small space (the nursery shares space with the office). We started by adding pieces of furniture and accessories that complemented our creative style and were also not costly. The crib, change table, armoir, bookcase and shoe closet were all Craigslist finds. The paintings by the crib were handmade by me to add colour to the chocolate brown walls...

My favourite piece in the nursery is the mobile that hangs above the crib which was also handmade by me. It was the most simplest and thriftiest project. It only required birds to be hung to a branch.

The curtain rod was a tree branch that was spraypainted and hung to allow for the curtain which were also handmade to be hung.

We want Rheon to embrace the arts and live creatively. Whatever career he chooses to pursue, we hope that art will also be a part of his life.

After completing Rheon's nursery, we were happy having designed a cozy and warm nursery on a tight budget.

We are hoping that soon, Rheon will create his own masterpieces that we can hang on his walls.

Thanks, Kristina!
