I’ve been gathering nursery ideas since before I was even pregnant! Of course, most of the ideas that I was drawn to were for girl’s rooms, so I really had to get my thinking cap on when I found out that we were having a boy. I didn’t want anything too typical. I didn’t want stars and baseballs, dinosaurs, cars with smiley faces, that kind of thing. I definitely don’t want the black ants that are currently painted on our nursery walls (can’t wait to paint over them!).
First I needed a colour pallet. These fabrics are from the Monaluna Collection by Robert Kaufman, designed by Jennifer Moore. I have purchased the upper left hand corner fabric, and will be choosing from a few of the other fabrics shown. I am going to make a crib quilt, curtains and crib skirt from these fabrics or fabrics of these colours.
I plan to incorporate the leftovers of the fabrics into many of these sweet little decorations for baby boys room. The first thing I decided I would make would be the owl mobile (upper right hand corner). But I didn’t want the room to be all owls, so I have decided to go with a woodland theme. Think cute little forest creatures, not Peter’s elk horns hanging over the baby’s crib. I realized later that this theme is perfect for Peter’s son, since Peter loves the outdoors so much. Here is a collection of items that have inspiried me with their cuteness and I hope I get the time to make a bunch of them for the little guy’s bedroom.
