Even though our nursery is really only the right side of our bedroom I think we can make it super cute! There is plenty of room for baby furniture so I think it will work out just fine for our little Leona Belle. I thought it would be really nice and soothing to go with a foresty color theme, with woodsy creatures and trees! I'd love to have a Where the Wild Things Are color palette (I know this is very big right now, but I still dig it.) These may not be traditional girl colors but we all know ladies like forests and adventures too, so there. You may remember that a while back I'd decided to start making stuffed animals. Sadly I only completed this one little top heavy elephant, but I think he'd love to be incorporated into LB's nursery too. Do elephants and forests really go together? In Leona's room they do!
We've been looking at a crib from Target, a dresser and glider from Walmart, that cute forest pillow from Urban Outfitters, rug from Home Decorators, and an floor lamp from our living room. Here's a little mock up of what it could look like all together. What do you think?
And here is a bedding set I found at Albeebaby.com that brings in the forest colors and elephants! Perfect, right? And it's on sale!JJ to help me with that. (What do you say, Jen?) Below is a picture of a cool decal you can get on Etsy. I'm thinking it would be cool to paint something like this but with less contrast, like a golden beige background with white trees, gold birds, etc.
Lastly I've really wanted to buy a print or two from an illustrator I love, Jen Corace. I haven't been able to track down any of her forest prints so I might email her directly. I think nice art would look really amazing on top of the birch forest, if it is a nice low contrast. Here are a couple of her pieces that I love love love. That about wraps it up for ideas, what do you guys think?
