Charles' Hungry Caterpillar Room

Name: Charles (1 month)
Location: Lake Zurich, IL

We were inspired by Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. My mother made baby Charlie the hungry caterpillar quilt, and I made matching curtains. We wanted to create a bright and bold nursery that wasn't too dark.

So we painted navy on one of the walls and kept the rest of the room white. I found this gorgeous yellow and white zig-zag rug at Urban Outfitters for a splash of color. I made the banner with Charlie's name out of paper and ribbon and the alphabet mobile out of felt. I also painted a custom painting of our dog for the dresser. I wanted the traditional Jenny Lind crib and changing table and found Hungry Caterpillar sheets from Pottery Barn.

Charlie just loves his room!

Thanks, Elizabeth! Well done!
