Contemporary Baby Animal Nursery contemporary-nursery

Contemporary Baby Animal Nursery

Our contemporary-meets-traditional nursery fits perfectly in our 1930s home and offers plenty of handmade projects to inspire. When we didn't know the sex of our new baby, we opted for a gender-neutral baby animal-themed space. After meeting our little girl, coral was brought in as an accent color through the curtains, bedding and artwork. Handmade projects include: custom glider cushions, a made over changing table, felt butterfly mobile, hand painted wall art, matching crib bedding, fabric pennant, coral curtains, fabric lined bookshelf and baby clothing art.

Hi Hayley, much of the crib bedding was handmade (with the exception of the coral bed sheet). You can find more here:

Thanks! For the wall with the stripes, did you bring the color down to 25%?

Actually down to 35% for the stripes, but a more drastic transition would look nice (the stripes in this room are very subtle).

Sure, you'd just have to paint at a slant which could be tough.

Hi, the glider is by Stork (we found it on Amazon at a great price) and I had slip covers for the cushions made out of a favorite fabric from Thibaut. You can read more about it by searching the nursery posts at: Thanks!
