A Nursery Theme.

So... we may not have even landed on a name yet, but I have definitely landed on a nursery theme for this little unborn pumpkin. (HAHA I'm suddenly calling the BABY "pumpkin"... my poor, poor husband.)

The theme will be an understated one, with more of a vintage-y feel... coming more from little objects in the room than any blaring bedding or wall decor...

Owls.

They are my favorite animal and I am just getting this "feeling" that it will suit this little mister well. Here are some things that I already have around the house that will make great additions:



Beyond this, maybe a couple more vintage owl prints for the walls and an amazing stuffed owl or two along the lines of these:

Found here.

Found here.


For the bedding, I'm thinking solid cream or white with a vintage quilt to top it all off.

Simple. Clean.

You know... totally hoot-tastic.

The owls are cute. They symbolize wisdom, so that's a nice idea to impart to your little one. I'm doing vintage-y too, with a handmade quilt and handmade baby clothes, rug and wall hangings, mostly made by my grandmother and aunt. The pre-packaged baby decor was cute the first time around but I'm having more fun putting it together as I go this time.
Make sure to take lots of pics for us! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Super-cute! I'm sure you can find lots lots more decor...I see owls everywhere lately. I just got the cutest sock monkey on Etsy for a friend. Perhaps she makes owl blankets too. pearl25 was the seller.

Love the owls. My little guy is wearing an owls bib as I type this! There is just something about them.... I got an owl pendant as a gift recently, and whenever I wear it, I always get a few comments. People are just drawn to owls for some reason. The big eyes, maybe? They are certainly hoot-tastic.

Jiff said...

Very cute. And very fitting for you. :)

Have you tried google? I did and found the quilt but it's almost double the price from Red Envelope.com :(

Good luck!

Helen said...

Wow, I totally fell in love with that stuffed owls. I love your idea to decorate a room for a baby like this - usually moms are all about 'cute' and 'kitsch'. But this is just beautiful and heartwarming.

Karen said...

Hi Emery, you probably already saw this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_20&listing_id=13473067.
I couldn't help but think of your last post... :-)

Thanks for posting links to etsy. Its been a long time since I've visited there, and I missed it! Just found my son's halloween costume there, which coincidentally led me to the link that I posted for you. Love your nursery theme. I only wish I could be so creative and thoughtful. Have a great night. :-)

Talia said...

what a GREAT IDEA. It is almost too cute for words. I cannot wait to see it all put together!! And now, every time I see owls, I will think of you and your sweet baby. LOVE IT!

It is so funny that you love owls.
I really love owls. I think I like them so much because my Grandma had them all over her house when I would go visit I just thought they were so neat. I can't wait to see how the room turns out you are so creative. Love Mom 2

*sigh* Extremely envy of your artistic ability setting in over here. I never would have thought of something like this. So, so cute.

I'm about to redecorate my apartment when my new roommates move in, and I'm dreading it because I never know what to get.

Katie said...

I am SO addicted to all things OWL right now so I LOVE this idea! So fun :)
