Happy Friday! I'm excited to share the nursery my talented friend Erica put together for her adorable little boy, Henry Otto. This room is just so perfectly boy. She says they wanted to keep his room comfy and light, and also fairly neutral. They kept the gender a secret from everyone until he was born! That takes a lot of self-control. I don't think I could contain that information for so long once I knew it!
Don't you love the mural? She found the inspiration on Pinterest, and her husband worked on the design and she painted it while 8 months pregnant. That kind of makes me tired thinking about it! I love how it turned out, and it looks pretty great on the shades, too. (White Hudson Crib by Babyletto).
She found that vintage ottoman at a local antique market, and her mother reupholstered it in that fantastic aqua.
The beautiful alphabet print below is available in her shop (love the colors!) and the red metal basket is vintage (will be super great for toy storage as little Henry grows) as well as that amazing chair. She recovered it herself in mustard covered vinyl. So perfect.
And how awesome are those animals?! She scoured thrift shops for months to build the collection. She painted them gold to make them work well together, and added a few pops of aqua for fun. Erica custom designed all the artwork in those frames, and that awesome giraffe is a custom paper (hand!) cut based on Charley Harper's baby and mama giraffe illustration (amazing!).
I adore that dresser. It's a craigslist find that she painted a very light teal. Below is a little more of it. I really love that hardware!
I love all the pops of yellow everywhere. It looks like little Henry adores his space!
Thanks for the tour, buddy! (And, hey, Gingiber pillow up there in the rocker!)
How cute is that little goat up there on the mountain top? And just because I am sure you want to see a close up of those animals like I do, here is some more detail (they are so fierce! So perfect for a little guy's space):
Erica cut out his name for the door. She says he points to his name every morning and they say "Henry's room!" He loves it. (She offers custom ones here, and check out the gorgeous calligraphy version here.)
