When planning our son’s nursery, I wanted to create a bright and cheerful space that felt youthful and boyish. The initial inspiration came from a Mary Blair print we got at Disneyland, but after choosing his middle name, Wilder; the theme pivoted towards a natural woodland theme with animals and arrows.
I created a bold statement wall behind the crib using removable decals. The nightstand and dresser were customized with wood knobs, to tie together the wood tones in the crib, changing pad base and tree stump side table. Teepees, arrows and woodland animals help round out the theme, along with some of our favorite kid-like tchotchkes displayed on vintage steel shelves in the reading nook. To top it all off, we updated the lighting fixtures with vintage inspired shades from Schoolhouse Electric, and got a customized piece above the changing table with Arlo’s name spelled out in rope.
