Well it’s here. The sixth week of the One Room Challenge – aka reveal day!
Thank you to Linda of Calling it Home who orchestrates this challenge biannually. It’s such an exciting way to get a sneak peak into other blogger’s homes (or client’s homes) and watch them transform their spaces. The creativity and let’s face it, endurance through it all, is remarkably inspiring.
For my One Room Challenge, I finally completed my daughter Olivia’s nursery. Shamefully, I only began this nursery design two weeks before she was born. Of course, it was nearly impossible to finish before her arrival. Olivia who is now 10 weeks old is almost ready to transition to her own room hence why I needed a kick in the butt to get this done!
My inspiration all began with this charming wallpaper. This print reminds me of a fairy tale enchanted forest where everything is magical and it’s the norm for over-sized talking animals to join you for a garden tea party. . . is it obvious I watched Alice and Wonderland one too many times as a child 🙂
The great thing about this accent wallpaper is that this printed silhouette is still chic and subtle enough for Olivia to grow with. Something that was definitely high on my priority list. You can view more about the wallpaper from my week 1 post.
In my make-believe enchanted forest, the trees are draped with the prettiest of flowers so naturally, it’s only fitting to add some to this space. Since the crib is fairly neutral against the wallpaper, I wanted to make it pop with a little art work from Minted and my very own DIY flower mobile.
As we continue through my fairy tale world, there’s always a quaint little house. To mimic this idea, I created a house silhouette on the wall with pink paint which acts as the backdrop for Olivia’s crafting nook.
I also added hooks on the wall in fun pastel colours
Last but not least, Olivia’s dresser which incorporates the wood tones and also doubles as her change station. These simple DIY triangle shelves also make great wall displays.
As always, thanks so much for following along on my ORC journey. Don’t forget to check out all the other spaces!
