My Room: Oscar

Portland, OR

Mish mosh? Pish posh! We think Oscar's room is great. His mom Sarah: The room is kind of a mish mosh. The first thing we got was the chair. I hate the fabric but it is the most amazing chair to cuddle and read stories in (it swivels and rocks!). Someday we will reupholster it! The biggest hurdle was finishing before the baby came...new wool carpet and paint.

The whale mural took me a full day to do. My husband knew i was going to do a whale (his favorite) but had no idea what it would be until he came home from work. It was fun to see his reaction. I copied the graphic from a paper company (French Paper) poster. The little animal photos were from Etsy.com. I made the curtains and sheets. I used a subtle theme of animals but avoided having everything super matchy. Another goal was to keep it kind of gender neutral so things could be reused (wink wink).

Thanks Sarah and Oscar!
