Name: Victor Caden (2 months)
Location: Portland, OR

I own a small interior design company and this project is a 50s atomic inspired nursery for our first child, Victor. Our goal was to create a fun and vibrant space where our son can create, explore and imagine.

The room features a custom mural (painted by husband and I) of the Portland skyline being invaded by ufos! We included some of our favorite buildings in portland as well as places we often frequent (i.e. fave restaurants/bars, barber shop, theaters, etc). We chose to do the mural in a series of grays with some key elements highlighted in vibrant colors, such as the space ship beam and Vic's hot rod. The mural was done with Benjamin Moore paint, 10 rolls of painters tape, card stock and A LOT of hours. A dark chalkboard wall anchors the room and provides the perfect place for photo opportunities and messages to our son. As he grows older, he will be able to utilize it to draw and create his own works of art.

We wanted a very refreshing and modern space with some vintage touches. The crib is the Babyletto crib from Target. Both the vintage rocking chair and dresser were excellent craigslist finds. The drapes and roller shades are from Ikea. We made a few felt pillows of aliens and a spaceship for the crib. We hope you enjoy!
