My Room: Conor

My Room: Conor

Carrie McBride
Jul 7, 2010

Conor's attractive room is full of items handmade by family or chosen with care from artists and artisans on Etsy. Lisa tells us more and shares some great resources: We knew we were expecting a boy, but wanted to create a whimsical, bright, gender neutral space for Conor that could also be enjoyed by any future siblings. The room is small (approx. 12x10) and oddly configured, but by utilizing the dormer space for the glider we were able to make it work.

Most of the decorations were handmade by Conor's family or purchased from Etsy. Conor inherited my collection of bird field guides and ornithology books, which are displayed in the hutch. We included several bird decorations to continue the theme.

Conor just turned one and loves spending time in his room!
