Toddler room update

This past weekend I decided that it’s time for a little toddler room update! We where all a bit tired with the blue mural that was on the wall and while I’m not ready to take Julien out of the crib- he’s a year an a half and I still need him contained in that crib – he does need more space for toys and play.

When I first design this room over a year ago, I wanted a statement wall that would set a tone for his room. But the thing is that sometimes statements are a bit too strong, and after awhile you get tired of them! 

So this past weekend, with a bit of help from my mother in law, we did a makeover in Julien’s nursery! 

 We painted the walls this fresh mint green, that funny enough was not my first colour choice! It’s actually a proof that sometimes design mistakes are positive coincidences! See, I was picking up paint on a whim, with 3 kids in tow, and was sure that the sample I choose was more blueish and greenish. I compared all the samples in pale natural light of my local Canadian Tire and decided that this should do. And while this is not the pale bluish green I was going for, and it’s definitely mint and nothing else, in end we all like it anyway !

Then we moved furniture around, and all of the sufdden the room feels much bugger!

And I added these rainbow decals from Rocky Mountain Decals! They where super easy to instal, and I think they look really cute in here! Best thing about these decals is that they are easy to take off and stick somewhere else, so for a serious redecorator like me they are the best option! ( plus, they don’t damage walls!)

 I’m really happy with those colourful rainbow decals and the half wall of colour – they’re fun together and add character to this room- but don’t overwhelm the space as the big mural did!

And now this room feels fresh, is more toddler friendly and definitely feels a bit bigger! ️And all it took was a bit of paint and fun decals!

Eclectic nursery – One room challenge- the big reveal !

Today is the day! It’s the One Room Challenge big reveal day! I couldn’t be more happy about this eclectic nursery – it’s colorful, bright and cozy all at the same time, and makes for a perfect space that will grow with my little boy and his needs!

And while this room is far from spacious, I managed to fit all the essentials in here! I might even add more toys in colorful baskets in the future!

I think that what really defines this space is the wallpaper from A New Wall – these contemporary waves make me think about the vintage japanese drawings and are both dramatic and calming! I must say, I just love how they look in this boys room!

I got the structured rug from Lorena Canals, and I just love how it fits the space- while being ultra practical ( it’s machine washable!)

As for the furniture they are a mix of old and new. I got the crib and chair new- but on sale! The changing table was scored on kijiji and repainted. And the side table was our old vintage piece that I repainted.

Since it’s a very small room every inch of space matters- so I used the little corner wall of the closet to hang shelves for books and I store baby blankets in the toy storage basket !

I painted an old vintage side able the same blue as the wooden name sign and the wooden hooks that hold little teethers.

I think that the repetition of this moody blue adds cohesion to this otherwise eclectic room !
