My Room: Poppy

Pop art inspired the feel and color of Poppy's room terrific room. Emily shares: When I first found out I was having a girl, I was adamant that both she and her room wouldn't be defined pink. This proved harder than expected, both with her wardrobe and her room. Thankfully, I found a fantastic and fun Andy Warhol print of Queen Elizabeth (very apropos, as my husband is British) and used its bold colors as my guide.

My favorite piece in the room is the "There Is Thunder In Our Heart" canvas above Poppy's crib. The entire time I was pregnant, we referred to Poppy as Thunder, since the first time I felt her move was during a thunderstorm. Fast-forward a few months and I found this great quote from a Kate Bush song. I painted it directly on a 30x40 canvas, which we drilled directly to the wall so it was safely anchored above the crib. It's a great reminder of the journey that we went through with Poppy before she was born, and just how much we fall in love with her every day.
