If you’re reading this blog, you’ve already seen a picture of the beautiful mural Dad Moody painted for Brynn’s nursery. Today I thought I’d give you a tour of the completed room. (Please forgive the many shades of blue that the walls appear to be. They aren’t changing color, it’s just a glitch called “Elisabeth is not a photographer.”)
After looking at nurseries online, I had decided to decorate with the colors aqua, coral and mustard yellow. I found that it’s a tricky combo to get just right, and couldn’t find any fabric with all three colors to use for making curtains. Although the nursery didn’t turn out as I had envisioned it, I like the room, and the personalized touches are precious.
Of course the walls are aqua (Valspar’s Sea Tickle from Lowes), and the gorgeous birdcage/tree mural is the focal point. I love geometric patterns and maybe went a bit overboard with all the repeating patterns in Brynn’s room. The aqua curtains are from Target, and the coral rug is from Urban Outfitters. Tiny splashes of yellow come in the form of Brynn’s toy basket, stuffed animals, and some linens (not pictured). In looking around her room a few weeks ago, I decided to rearrange the furniture more to my liking. Rearranging did help the room come together better, but there was still something missing.
When Stephen returned home from Grandma Myers’ funeral, he brought a quilt Mom Moody had made for Brynn. It was the missing puzzle piece! Mom did a beautiful job, and incorporated my colors and my pattern preferences into the quilt. I love the way it ties everything together.
