Baby Strodl's Nursery Inspiration

Nursery Inspiration
Mobile, Light, Stuffed Animal, Wallcovering, Cribs, Art, Rocker, Drapery

I've been meaning to do a preliminary inspiration board for the baby's room for awhile now. It's amazing how fast this pregnancy has gone. Poor child, he's already suffering for being third in line. Anyhow, with the help of my awesome painter dad, we are going to paint my existing black crib kelly green and put it against a white and gray backdrop. I can't believe I actually found a photo of a crib painted in the exact shade of green I've been dreaming about. Just when you think you're original right?! Anyhow, my plan is to let that crib shine and punch up the white walls with some bright artwork. This piece by John Dilnot has me melting right now as does the Mr. Mustache mobile. We always gift the boys with their own blabla doll and this little black and white pup seems just right. I know the Eames rocker and Cole & Son wallcovering are cliche but I love them so shut about it. Let me know what you think. It's for me so any suggestions would be great!

  1. I love the green crib:)

    Ps: I am hosting a great GIVEAWAY today :) Hope you will join in :)!!!

  2. I love that painted crib. Great color!

  3. love love love it. do you think you are going to like that rocker? I LOVE the way it looks, but I can't decide if I would hate it at 3 o'clock in the morning.

  4. So, Stephanie I have been having a hard time finding one in person here. Our Design Within Reach closed last year so I haven't sat in it yet. Hate the affordable rockers and would have to get a 2nd job to afford the cute upholstered ones. Sigh...Will let you know.

  5. Love your post today - so fun to get a peek into the head of a 'design' gal.

    I had to comment on the Blabla doll because I discovered these when Scoutie was about 9 months old and bought one for his 1st bday because he didn't have a lovey yet. I chose the Adiamo dog (grey with red and white stripes). I still love it and Scout (at 3) still snuggles with it every night in bed. Your little guy will love the black and white pup for sure.

    The rocker is very cool and could be comfy (talk to Michael Bennett - I think he and Jen have one in their nursery?)

    I chuckle at the Design Within Reach store name because C loves it but it's certainly not within OUR reach. *wink* Your nursery will be wonderful Amy. Have fun 'nesting'.



The Mike is Yours! (be gentle)
