I’m so excited to finally share the baby room with you today! I’ve been working on this room for several months, on top of the boy’s room (which you can see here if you missed it!), and I’m so happy with how it came together.
I wanted to create a really simple and peaceful nursery, and since already owned the gray rocker, the gray pouf, and the white and brown dresser from Foster’s nursery, I went with gray and white as my color palette. Since there’s very little color in the room, I wanted to add a lot of different textures and subtle patterns to keep the room visually interesting, so I chose this diamond patterned rug with a sheepskin rug layered over it, the water hyacinth basket, a white faux fur pillow (that’s unfortunately no longer available), some neutral blankets, a mirror (which also makes this tiny room feel bigger), a big tropical plant (a pop of green makes a room come alive!), and of course the stripes on the ceiling.
I’d seen stripes on the ceiling once a long time ago on Pinterest and thought it was such a good way to add some pattern in a unique way. The only bad part is that no one wants to paint the ceiling, let alone measure and tape it all off and then paint. So when I heard about Walls Need Love and their Easy Stripes, I knew it was the perfect solution. They’re vinyl strips that you can just stick on and cut down to size — no measuring, no paint fumes (which is perfect for pregnant mamas), and not permanent so they’re great for rental properties! I put these up by myself and although it took three or four stripes to get the hang of it, I got better and faster and had all of these up within a few hours. And I love how they really complete the room and add that unexpected but subtle pattern. They have different widths and they come in a ton of colors that you can see right here, but they also have tons of other decals including murals, maps, and more.
The only thing I wish the room had was a mobile over the crib. Since we have earthquakes here in California we didn’t want to hang any picture frames over the crib, so that space still looks a little empty. That amazing handmade felt ram’s head from Heart Felt Creations was a perfect addition to the little wall space, but I still think there needs to be something in the other wall above the crib, I just haven’t found anything I’ve loved or had the time to make one myself. Maybe one day!
