We started the room with a woodland theme, but didn't want it to be too cartooney. We also wanted to tie in touches of the seaside, though we still need to add more. As I have mentioned before, I was in the hospital and on bedrest for 3 months prior to their birth, so we didn't have a chance to really work on this space until after they were born. It came together wonderfully and we are so happy.
I'll start with a bit of a room tour. First, we have the hallway and the door into the room. The picture outside is from the movie version of the book Where The Wild Things Are (one of my favorite stories!)
We have a bed in the room as we currently divide up the night and take "shifts" so we can each get a chunk of sleep. Once the bed is gone, that far wall will become a sitting area with a couch or pillows on the floor and we will put in a proper bookcase.
The walls are actually painted a soft grey, but it looks more blue with the light in the room. It is light enough that it goes with the tones of green on the carpet and curtains.
My most favorite part is the feature wall with the cribs. The wallpaper is called Woods, by Cole and Sons. It is sold at Anthorpologie, but is soooo expensive that we ended up ordering it from the original manufacturer in the UK. It did not disappoint. It turned out exactly as planned!
The crib bedding is by Dwell Studio and is called Woodland Tumble. It was expensive, but adds such character to the room. Once the bed is out of the way, it will be showcased more clearly. The cribs are simply from Ikea. They also convert to toddler beds/
We are still finishing our collection of art for the walls, but the two prints we have up are from an Etsy shop. One quote is from Fantastic Mr. Fox, and the other one is from Where The Wild Things Are.
The print above the change table was hand painted by a friend of ours who is an artist. Isn't it just breathtakingly incredible? We hope to infuse a love for the outdoors and, specifically, the ocean into our boys.
And there you have it. I will share some of my inspirations in a different post, as planning is half the fun. I didn't think I would have such fun planning a room, but it has been great to put effort into a room that is functional (for us) for now, and that has the ability to grow and change with our boys for the future. Thanks for sharing in our special space!
