My Room: Little P

My Room: Little P

Megan sent us some photos and info on the beautiful room she put together: This is the nursery we created for our first baby on the way...a little girl we are now calling "Little P." My main goal was to design a space that is cheerful, happy, inviting, warm, and modern. I didn't want to use a cutesy theme, so I chose a color theme instead...

To keep the room from looking too sterile and harsh, I layered in warm colors, textures, and fabrics. We introduced natural seagrass wallpaper on the front of the Ikea dresser to give it a more warm, upscale/unique look which paved the way for the wicker storage baskets and wicker elephant hamper.

I used fabric from Purl Soho in embroidery hoops on the wall in attempts to add a coziness and warmth as well. A favorite element is the "hooray" banner I bought off Etsy. It's unique, warm, and cheerful and a word I use a lot. I think this room would make a great Ohdeedoh tour because it shows a use of colors and textures to create a look rather than relying on one set theme.

I believe not everything has to "match" or be made specifically for baby in order to work in a nursery. I think this space exemplifies that. I will be adding this space today to my blog and I write about creative endeavors here.

Thanks, Megan!
