Sleepykins// Kashton's Eclectic Nursery

Kashton is my third, and final baby.  He is the youngest of three boys and I knew exactly what I wanted in his nursery.  Being a veteran mom, I know what works and what doesn’t. I also know the value of a mixing inexpensive and hand-me-down, with expensive pieces to make the room eclectic and functional.  I kept his room a neutral palate, and then let his books, plants, and little curios be the pops of color throughout.  We are big music and literature fans in our home, so I wanted to reflect that in his space.  My favorite piece of art is the one hanging above his change table with the lyrics from Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”, one of my favorite songs.  I am an ocean girl, and I grew up spending the summers by the sea.  My husband on the other hand, is a mountain man.  He could snowboard everyday of his life, and live in a log cabin in the mountains if he could.  I wanted to portray both of these vastly different spectrums in his room, so Kashton has a reminder of the love his parents have for both land and sea.   The Pine Tree wall decals, and the water color shark jaw embody both perfectly, and are a fun mix.   All of his books are hand-me-downs or gifts, and they all have special meaning.  His Miffy books on his change table were mine as a baby, and the thrifted brass duck heads and thrifted brass lamp base all add a touch of eclectic whimsy. I’ve learned over the years to spend more on crib bedding, than on the crib itself.  I purchased a very inexpensive Ikea crib, but his sheets are a soft as butter and so snuggly.  Perfect for a full nights sleep (all mamas love that)!  His dresser and rocking horse have been in all three of my boys nursery.  The Rocking horse was my very first purchase for a nursery ever, when I found out I was pregnant with my first son.  I have no intentions of parting with it, like ever.   It has been such a joy rocking my baby boy in his room every night since birth, and I love the natural light that dances around the plants and the serenity I feel inside this space.

Sleepykins//Eva's Attic Conversion

We love this cheery attic conversion from one of our readers in Australia.
Here’s what Roshnee had to say about Eva’s space: “We love living in the city. When we had kids, everyone assumed we would move, but we just transformed our terrace house into the ultimate in small space living. We transformed the attic room into a little girls’ hideaway and she loves it. We love the contrast between the bricks that date back to 1890 and the new bright colors.” You can follow Roshnee’s design adventures on Instagram.
