Nursery Inspiration

March 17, 2011

I’m excited about my ideas for the nursery, and am hoping it all comes together the way I envision it. The closest I’m coming to a theme is Charley Harper. He’s a local Cincinnati artist (who died a few years ago) and is quite well-known in certain circles for his “minimalist realist” style of depicting wildlife.

I’d like to attempt making a mobile out of craft paper, wooden rods, and string. It can’t be that hard to make some simple shapes, right? I picture it as something like a mixture of these lovely mobiles I found on Etsy:

I love these art gallery walls from two of my favorite home blogs (Young House Love and Bower Power). I know at least a couple of you will recognize them. I’m also thinking we’ll need to take the door off the closet to get a little more space out of our small 10×9 room.

The room is still full of other stuff at the moment, but that should all be getting cleared out in the next couple of weeks. I’ve already started some demo work on the closet, but now I’m getting ahead of myself. Those plans are for another post…

    LOVE IT! The mobile would be so much fun to make! The middle bird mobile looks like it was made out of felt…It would be easy to cut the shapes and hand stitch and add a patch of colorful fabric for the wings. :)

    Oh, and the colors and alphabets remind me of my sister-in-laws bedding and decore in her nursery. Alphabet Soup it’s called and it’s still on Target online.

    I love the Charlie Harper pictures. They’re definitely good inspiration. I’m a little jealous: since we don’t have a nursery, baby will be mostly integrated into our current living spaces. But it will still be fun to craft those spaces.
