room for baby : one warm winter

posted on: Thursday, May 13, 2010

The serene faced fox and owl were key items that inspired the overall nursery theme.


Mum, Lauren, painted the tree and used soft grey fabric to fashion the leaves.


vibe
Serene, sophisticated, whimsical and fresh.

who lives here?
Violet, who is a mere three days old, in the USA.

decor
The curtains are from Urban Outfitters, the lamp is from Ikea, the cot bumper is from RockyTop Design and the V on the wall is from Anthropologie. The silver owl on the dresser was a gift, as were the fox and owl in the cot.

diy
Originally bright orange, Lauren and her husband painted the attic room grey and added white trim. When it came to the floor they ripped out the old vinyl covering and replaced it with timber floorboards. Lauren also painted the tree on the wall and revamped the oak dresser by painting the frame white and adding new drawer knobs.

furniture
Lauren bought the white cot from Babies R Us, the rocker from a garage sale and the oak dresser was a hand-me-down.

best buys
The soft striped rocker that Lauren picked up at a garage sale for only $5 USD. Bargain!

baby space fave
The painted tree and the soft toy critters - a few key features that add playful character without detracting from the overall calm quality of the space.

top tips
Start with an idea board and a budget to hone your focus. Lauren set a budget of $1000 USD and came in at $885.47 USD. You can get your own idea board made by Lauren for only $10 USD by ordering one at her blog.
