I knew I did not want a theme but rather something that can change and grow with him easily as he gets
older. I have always loved the look of breadboard and thanks to my parents who came to help it is probably one of my favorite aspects of the room and adds some depth to a plain wall.
I knew though that I wanted a calm and relaxing feel with different textures and fabrics but nothing too loud. From the velvety soft crib sheets and blanket to the precious burlap pennant banner and curtain ties I think the textures and fabrics that make up the room add interest and depth to what could otherwise have been a bland and stark space. I also love the contrast between the grays and soft blues and whites, it couldn't have come together more perfectly.
I feel its a space thats relaxing enough but also visually engaging for our sweet boy. He loves to look up at the banner when I change him and the scroll monogram on the wall grabs his attention when he is hanging out in his crib or playing on the floor.
The other thing I really wanted to incorporate from the start was some sort of book shelf on the wall. This took me forever to find what I finally wanted but I love how it turned out and its fun to interchange the books with seasons and holidays.
