We are crushing on this baby’s cute woodland nursery! His mom DIY-ed it from top to bottom – the boho mobile, the wall decal-ed in silver triangles, and the play teepee show off her major crafting skills. If that weren’t enough she photographed it beautifully too!
Sara Lynn shares, When I started planning the theme and décor for our nursery, I knew I wanted a retreat that was bright and airy. We had a pretty rough pregnancy and because of that, I wanted to create a place I could relax in and be happy to spend a ton of time in. We decided to not find out the gender so focusing on a more gender neutral color palette was also a priority. I decided on off-whites, grays, mustard yellow, forest green and a deep purple – with creams, whites and grays being the primary focus.
I grew up on a farm with a small forest in our backyard – I always thought it was so magical growing up and I wanted my little one to have some type of fantasy, forest retreat that they could play make-believe and dream of the impossible. Since our home décor is an eclectic mix of modern and bohemian, it was a natural fit to find furniture pieces that matched. I fell in love with this crib from Babyletto and found the dresser at a vintage flea market that had been painted with chalk paint, which we refinished to it’s original, natural wood. The baby mobile was a long art project of mine and took several weeks shaping the branches, sewing the stars, tying up feathers and making all the dream catchers.
My favorite feature of our son’s room is the tee-pee tent. It’s filled with toys, pillows and a mix of vintage and new stuffed animals. I can’t wait until he’s old enough to crawl inside, cuddle his animals and fall asleep while reading his books. To tie everything together, I found the perfect wool rug on Target and pulled the geometric patterns onto the graphic triangle wall. We absolutely love being in the nursery, rocking our son to bed or playing with him and watching him grow everyday.
