Oona's Colorful Family Bed

Oona's Colorful Family Bed

As we begin to wrap up our color theme this month, AT reader Keely sends us photos of her daughter's bedroom to share with everyone.

Oona (arriving in February) will be partaking of the family bed and
of their room Keely says, "We used color as the primary influence to make this room feel like a nursery, as we didn't want to spend a lot of money on furniture that would only be used for a short time, and which Oona might not even like. So instead of a crib, we are co-sleeping. Instead of a changing table, we will sit on the floor or the bed to change diapers."

Keely adds, "When she comes of crawling age we plan to turn the nursery into a Montessori-influenced room with the mattress on the floor and lower everything to child-friendly exploring height...We chose blue, green and white for the colors because we wanted something that was whimsical and friendly for Oona, but would still feel comfortable for our guests."

Thanks for sharing, Keely!
