Edie’s Woodland Nursery
Two-week old Edie is a lucky girl. Not only does she have a big brother and parents who love her dearly, but she has a pretty awesome little bedroom designed by her stylish mama, Liz.
The room is fresh and modern and the charming woodland creatures and accents make it a cozy place for a child to grow. Best of all, except for a few purchases, almost everything in the room was a hand-me-down or something repurposed from around the house.
For one, the brown and white chevron rug (from West Elm) used to be in the master bedroom. Your eyes are drawn to it once you walk in the room.
The removable decal above the changing table/dresser, purchased from Blik, is one of the few new things in the room. Liz originally bought this for her five-year-old son Angus’s room, but then thought it worked better in Edie’s nursery.
The white IKEA dresser/changing table, as well as a few other white IKEA storage pieces in the room, were in Angus’s room when he was a baby.
For a new, custom look, Liz replaced all the drawer pulls with fox and rabbit knobs from Anthropologie.
The subtle animal theme continues around the room — horses found at the MV Big Flea, painted to coordinate with the room; a handsome hare, one of a set of five prints from Etsy hung over the crib; and other whimsical creatures ready for play.
And of course the most striking aspect of the room has to be the purple ceiling! Wow! It’s Summer Plum by Benjamin Moore.
The light fixture is a refurbished vintage light that used to be in their hallway, painted white for a crisp look that pops against the purple.
The closet doors are also painted purple, and there’s even some purple on the curtain sashes.
Edie’s too young right now to appreciate the thought that went into her room, but she’s happy and content just rocking with her mama.
