The twins are 8 months already (!?!) and I have been meaning to share the nursery. (Can you even call it that anymore?)
It was very hard to come up with a theme for the room. I knew the color palette I was looking for (orange, lime green, blues, grey). The question was how to make this room their own while still reusing a lot of my daughter’s baby things and for us, the answer was in the artwork.
Our cousin, Laura from The Corner of Knit and Tea, is a superstar knitter (you may remember her from her Guest Peace!) and crafted these adorable bunnies. I love how they are similar but different, plus they make great companions for the boys’ monthly photos.
Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur happens to be one of my daughter’s favs. I love Disney fan art and seeing someone else’s interpretation of the characters. I fell in love with the colors and illustrations in these pieces by Joey Chou.
Another dreamy rendition is this one by Hayley Brynn. I just happened to stumble across her work on Etsy and I am so glad I did! I love the companionship of Arlo and Spot and how they are so different yet such good friends, perfect for my boys.
This work is from a good friend, Gail from Nightengail Art (Yes! Another Guest Peacer!) Made for my daughter before she was born almost four years ago, we couldn’t move it as it looks too perfect here.
And the best drawing of all was made by my daughter in anticipation of her two brothers’ arrival.
The main thing I try to keep in mind while designing the nursery is to make it a space that has room to grow and I can picture the boys in here for a very long time.
