Beautiful Baby Spaces

It would seem that I have a serious addiction to home tours and especially nursery tours. Lately, Ohdeedoh has been feeding my love for interior design & beautifully functional, child friendly spaces.

I was first drawn to this nursery because the little boy who occupies it is named Ezra, which, as some of you may know, is the name of my best friend's son.


Upon closer inspection I saw this fabric on their glider and nearly fainted -- look how amazing it is! Those colours! The zebra & the deer? Brilliant. I'm completely smitten.

Here's what Ezra's mother, Sarah, said about the chair: "My mother and I had been shopping for gliders and not crazy about the style of most of them. On a whim we stopped at Salvation Army, and found a glider in the parking lot that someone had just dropped off. We picked it up for $30. We splurged (well, my mom splurged) on fun Echino fabric and professional reupholstery to make the chair look amazing."


I'm also a huge fan of these storage boxes. The boy & I have been hunting down boxes like this in order to fashion a large bookshelf (by stacking them all together securing them somehow).

I love the rustic, old world feeling that they bring the room.



Another nursery that I fell in love with was Norah's. I love the embroidery hoop wall hanging, and the paint colour is especially stunning.



The chandelier (from IKEA & painted pink) is a really nice touch.

Norah's mom, Caroline, on her favourite aspect of the nursery: "I just love the bright and cheery colors of the room! Each time I walk by it puts a smile on my face! My favorite element has to be the yellow crib! It really brings something unique and is the main centerpiece of the nursery."


Beautiful!

I love that yellow cot so much. Its lovely. I also like white wrought-iron like the one my three siblings and I slept in as babies. I have always imagined how I'd like to paint the rooms of my future babes; perhaps one like a forest with tall branching trees, and star stencils on the ceiling...

Oooh pretty. My friend, with the son named Ezra, has birch trees painted all over his room -- they are so beautiful!
