|a vintage school map with a construction paper message for Rohen: You are here.|
They did supply me with two amazing things that were the initial inspiration for this baby boy's nursery - my friend Risa had a couple of twenty year old collections: bouncy balls and key chains. SO. Groovy. And right in my comfort zone as they aren't really about the sex of the baby, they are just cool and perfect for any baby's room. That's sort of my mode for these rooms. The colors, shapes, spheres, places and time captured in those two collections led me to a map which led me to colorful fabrics which informed the whole room.
You Are Here, Rohen - here in the world, here in Dallas TX, here in your room with your lovely, amazing parents - You. Are. Here. And a lucky, loved little guy you are. Thanks to the Phearse's for letting me be a part of this journey.
|The bouncy ball lamp is my favorite thing in the room.|
|Traditional mobile - nah! Instead I strung globe stress balls and colorful twine wrapped balls to the ceiling for a color and thematic connection. I love how the big clump drops right into the room and works perfectly with the vintage map.|
|I made the yarn pompoms myself to top off the cream panels.|
|(Bad shot here, sorry) Risa had the crib and furniture already so no stress in picking the wrong thing there!|
|Bouncy balls and key chains fit perfectly into these canisters and will soon be bookends.|
