Wren’s bedding was how the whole color scheme came to life. I had drooled over Rachel Ashwell’s tie-dye crib set for months, and when I went to purchase it at her old Newport Beach store I was thrilled to find it was discontinued but they still had a couple pieces left. The crib skirt was $29 and the bumper was $49! I am trying to figure out how to have them repurposed for her big-girl room I love them so much~
Originally her change table, the vintage dresser (found on craigslist for $20 and jazzed up with some vintage enamel numbers) now contains mostly socks and books. She LOVES to read and while out treasure hunting I always manage to bring home a few more so these are just the most popular.
We picked up this big antique cabinet last November for $140 after stalking it at a local store for close to a year (click here to get the scoop on our find). It is by far one of the funnest thing I’ve ever bought!
Originally Wren’s room was quite white. I think people thought that was strange and that kid’s rooms should be colorful and fun, not stark and sterile white. But I knew that as she got older toys, blankies, and books would all become part of her room…. which are all colorful. So to keep it calm and not overwhelmingly vibrant we keep the mainstays light and let the accessories add the fun.
I like that things don’t match and that virtually everything is a different shade of blue. The round pillow is an old Simply Shabby Chic purchase from target, and the knitted teal pillow was an Anthropologie sale find.
