Nearly a year after having my bundle of joy and moving into a new home in the same week, I am finally tackling the more permanent decoration of my daughter's room. Having some insight into her budding personality has helped drive some of my aesthetic decisions, and there are still some things that I need to convince my husband are absolutely necessary before it is complete. :) Here are some of the key elements and a few that are in the running. I still have a couple things that are up in the air, including book storage, toy storage, and possibly a daybed. Keep in mind I believe kids deserve the experience of a beautiful space they can grow with, and once her room is done I don't plan to make any major changes for awhile. Let me know what you think and please share any suggestions for the up-in-the-air items.
I waited what seemed an eternity to get this bed in the US. It is the Ubabub Nifty Clear crib. I have it. I love it, and it converts to a toddler bed.
Two walls will be sheathed in Hermes Herringbone wallpaper in grege.
|The other walls have been painted in Home Decorators Collection by Behr's Grey Mist.|
This is similar to the geometric wool rug that I found for the room. These elements make a calm neutral base.
Pindler & Pindler's Kanpur in apricot will cover the windows and decorative pillows.
Galbraith & Paul's Birch fabric in chocolate to upholster a kid sized rocking armchair and a few decorative pillows.
|Bertoia's Bird chair and ottoman for Mommy to lounge in while reading to the baby. :)|
|Any of these Sean Woolsey side tables would work in the room.|
|This vintage dresser would make an elegant storage statement for years to come.|
|The piece de resistance.... Avram Rusu Studio's glass Confetti pendant would make an awesome exclamation point in the room. Still working on the hubby to commission this work.|
We have some amazing art pieces and a collection of banks for the room as well. Pictures of the process and finished product will be posted in the coming weeks.
