Before I got pregnant, it was already decided that we would wait to find out the gender whenever we had a baby. Upon getting pregnant, the nursery planning fun began. My whole house and decorating style is comprised of soft, neutral tones. I decided I really needed to go outside of the box for once and use bright, fun colors. After all, a kids room is the perfect and most appropriate space to do so.
I decided on turquoise and orange for the main colors of the palette, with accents of yellow and green. A good friend of mine had this beautiful world map that I instantly fell in love with, so I went and bought one for the space. I painted two dowel rods white, glued them to the map then hung it with twine. I pulled my colors from the map, and bought accessories to compliment it. The map ended up being the perfect focal point; because of our lifestyle (we move and travel a lot) I decided on a travel theme for the room.
The dresser was an $80 Craigslist find that we painted ourselves (at 9 months pregnant I must add…thankfully hubby helped!) the orange lamp is from Target, assorted frames, chevron blanket and “happiness” pillow from Burlington Coat Factory, white floating shelves and Poang rocking chair from Ikea, world globe from Stein Mart and green burlap basket from T.J. Maxx. To showcase where we have lived so far, I found white shadowbox frames online and displayed each state with colored card stock mounted on burlap (inspired from Pinterest of course!) The only project I didn’t complete was a paper plane mobile made from maps…that will just have to be my project for the next one!
