So I had been dreaming up the girls room for some time…..okay forever ago. I wanna say it was the one room I was truly looking forward to creating when we were building. I had discovered this beautiful wallpaper and decided it was a must. Of all the things the wall paper was the inspiration. I had already decided on a half wall as it is a big statement and well as soon as I saw it it was paired with some wayne scotting. In my head I had imagined it on the window wall however when I started sorting out the room and the dynamics of two cribs in one room it better suited on the larger wall. More of a feature wall. That and the fact that it was my first time wall papering and The window with trim was a bit more then I was wanting to take on.
Before we had moved I had these great little ikea cribs for the girls with the intention of painting them. However when I got them in the room I discovered I really liked them as is. Total bonus! Painting furniture (all those bars times two)
I took this room slowly so by the time I was finished it was no longer the girls nursery but more of their toddler rooms. Which I believe most of the elements were able to transition well. There are so many elements I love from the cradle my grandpa made for me to the gold banner from their first birthday. The DIY flowers were made after I had used them in a photo shoot and was a good complement to the wall paper across. I also made the love sign and blanket ladder with some good old elbow grease some gold spray paint and a handy husband. The LOVE sign is one of may favourites and a total inexpensive way to create something fun for the wall. I was in the middle of taking these when the girls decided they would join me so I through them in the beds so they wouldn’t destroy the room before I had a chance to capture it. I naturally had to get a few shots of them too;)
can’t wait to start on the next room!
