Sacha's Whale of a Room

My Room

Name: Sacha James
Location: US

This is our 2-week-old little boy Sacha's room. We wanted a modern room that was still fun and livable.

We found the dresser on Craigslist and spruced it up with a little paint, new pulls, and steel legs. The bench is an old Norrebo IKEA shelf that we dissected and painted. Our awesome friend made the curtains and bench cushion.

The whale tapestry above the changing table is a scarf we picked up at Urban Outfitters. We mounted it on a frame and backlit it with rope light (this has been key for soft lighting during the late night sneak attack diaper changes). Most of the wall art is from Etsy. Overall, we are very happy with the just the minor task of convincing Sacha to actually sleep in his crib.

Thanks Kai!
