Name: Levi (11 Months)
Location: Toronto, Canada
Our culture does not believe in creating the nursery of your baby until after the baby is born. I am a very organized and like to be prepared, so I disregarded this superstition and went ahead anyway!
We knew Levi was a boy before he was born, but I didn't want the room to be too male-themed but also didn't want it to be cheesy. I thought a mint green was a nice calming wall color to make Levi feel warm and cozy in his new world. The three animals framed above Levi's crib were created by myself and a friend of mine. I wanted to add a personal, "home made" touch to Levi's room that he can continue to use in his room when he is a bit older. Once the pictures were created, a small animal/nature theme took place. The tree is from roomatespeelandstick.com and the letters are from Pottery Barn.
When Levi was born, I spent the first 6 months of his life in his room many times a night for feedings. As exhausted as I was, sitting in this friendly, welcoming room relaxed me and made me forget how tired I was and that this new life we created was the most amazing thing that could ever happen to me and my husband.
Thanks, Danielle and Cory!
