Welcoming a new baby into your home is such a big life step! Since my brother and sister-in-law, Jessi, will be welcoming their first baby this spring, they've been making all the necessary preparations...the nursery being a major piece! In conjunction with Studio 5, I teamed up with Jessi to create a whimsical wanderlust nursery that she'll love laying her sweet baby to sleep in. Goodness! I love it so much, I may be sleeping over too!
The idea for the nursery really began at the top...Literally! Despite Jessi's reservations, I convinced her that we just had to do a hot air balloon ceiling for the baby's room. Now that it's complete...We both couldn't be happier! It is so fun and happy, you can't enter this room without smiling! See the full instructions for creating a circus top ceiling of your own here.
|A little baby bunting goes a long way. I love the way this little banner (pieced together from 2 pre-made banners available at Target) adds to this simple floating shelf.|
|Ever world explorer needs a good map! I designed this watercolor map and had it printed in large format at Costco. We then repurposed a thrift store frame with spray paint to create the perfect above the crib wall hanging!|
|Hanging the balloons from different heights allows for lots of movement for baby to watch.|
|I hung the mobile above the crib using a little c hook in the ceiling. So simple!|
|One of my favorite pieces of the room is this Anthropology inspired hand painted globe. Not only was it fun to create, but it is also an adorable accent piece for the travel inspired room. See the full tutorial for creating a globe of your own here.|
