How is it already time for another edition of Window to the Wall Wednesday? For those of you who weren’t around for the first post, yes, I know it’s a pretty tacky song, but I bet you’ll have it in your head all day long!
This week I’m sharing a nursery I worked on almost two years ago. This sweet mama and I were pregnant at the same time, both with little boys. To say this family loves the beach and all things water is an understatement, so it was no surprise they wanted their little surfer boy’s nursery to mimic.
When I met with the couple to get a feel for what they envisioned, they had purchased the crib and needed me to pull together all the details. I love when a couple has already picked out a piece for the room they love. It makes the room that much more special. The crib resembles beach wood and fit the bill perfectly along with the linen canopy. The chandelier was a gift from the grandparents to the new baby.
Ok, so on to pulling the rest of the room together, based off the crib, and the desires of the couple. They wanted a fun, light-hearted, surfing nursery that would be a comfortable place for them both to hang out while feeding or rocking the baby to sleep.
The room had a TV from the previous owner so, duh, we left it. How many mamas get to watch their favoirte show during those 2 am feedings? These custom surf boards flank the TV and the gray gloss bookcase. Unfortunately, the gray color is no longer available, but the bookcase comes in six other colors. We LOVE us some IKEA!
Can you tell I was doing this nursery about the same time I was working on PB’s nursery? Notice anything similar? I don’t think I will ever get tired of using these oversized letters. I just wish they were easier to get my hands on.
Not only does this room have a comfy glider, but it also has this great lounge chair. The couple can enjoy hanging out together during those long feedings, and it’s also a great little reading nook for when the baby is a little older.
The gray stripe around the entire room ties the space together. With so many little nooks, we needed a way to pull it all together, and a stripe was just what it needed. Working on this room was so much fun, and hopefully little Kai will enjoy it for many years to come. How has it almost been two years??
