I have been learning how to juggle my work while being a new mom....and now I think I'm getting the hang of it! So I'm back and here to stay!
My husband plays the guitar and was in a band throughout high school and college. Music is very important to him so I thought it would be great to design our baby's nursery around a music theme.
I love how the bright colors in the fabric play against the dark wood crib. I sewed the crib skirt, using Michael Miller guitar fabric and also painted the artwork above the crib. I am a beginner with the sewing machine so I was thrilled with how the crib skirt came out (I went a little crazy making blankets and burp cloths since those are great beginner projects)!
I made this cute Guitar pillow to replicate my husbands guitar. The green clock is from Target and the adorable foot stool was a gift from a friend but I know she bought it on Etsy!
These photos were taken after my son was born so there are a few framed photos of him and a shadow box with his hand and foot prints. The walls are painted a soft beige. I wanted all the colors to pop against a light background.
If I had to choose my favorite piece in my son's nursery, it would be a toss up between the cool guitar lamp from Pottery Barn and the bright green throw rug (that I just realized you can't see very well in all my photos) from Target. The lamp really sets the theme and not to mention some style! After some thinking, I decided to splurge on the lamp for the room, especially after figuring that it is not "babyish" so therefore can be used for a long time in either my son's room or around the house (I'm thinking in a future office)! And as for the bright green rug...enough said! The bright color was exciting and made us happy!!
Designing baby nurseries are so much fun and exciting! I began searching for the perfect fabric for the crib since I was not happy with any crib sets out there. Once I chose the fabric (fell in love with the Michael Miller fabric) I used that to pull everything else together. I would bring a swatch of the fabric around with me to color match (or coordinate since I didn't want everything too matchy-matchy).
I hope you enjoyed these photos of my baby's nursery! I would love to hear about your experiences with designing your children's rooms!
