Mountain Outdoors Nursery Idea

Mountain Outdoors Nursery Idea

Since we hadn't found out the gender of our child, I wanted a fairly neutral nursery idea. I thought an outdoor theme fit perfectly. I painted a mural in the entire room. All four walls and the ceiling were painted in the mountain outdoor theme.

Little ladybugs, bees, and butterflies were stapled onto the wall. If you look closely, you can see some butterflies in the sky. There were clouds in the sky walls and ceiling that you can't see in the pictures.

My parents brought the cuckoo clock back from the Netherlands during their European tour. I bought one of the teddy bears on the shelf in Cambridge, England. I was very huge and pregnant at the time of my visit there.

My brother made an airplane that hung from the ceiling. The plane was made from balsa wood and tissue paper. (My brother is an engineer, and this airplane could fly if we wanted it to.)

I found some sheer fabric with star details, and I used blue gingham for the cornice and tieback. A blue and white striped fabric was used for the roman shade. I wanted the curtains to blend in with the sky walls, but also have character of their own.

I wanted the baby to feel like it was in the trees, so I painted a tree on either side of the crib. (Not that the baby would even know it!) There are wooden birds stapled onto the branches.

The bunnies painted on the wall had company from a big stuffed bunny.

I know that all of this was more for myself than for the baby. Really, what baby would know the difference between a room of murals and a plain white box? But, in my mind, I wanted our child to feel special, and it was my way of showing her/him my love through all my labor in that room.

Thanks for sharing your Mountain Outdoors Nursery

Wow - what a beautiful room!

I can see you poured your heart and soul into it. That's what I do when I decorate for my little ones. It's such a great way to express love for them before they even arrive.

Maybe your baby won't appreciate everything you've done at first, but s/he will as s/he gets older. I'm sure there will be lots of questions about rabbits and butterflies.

I wish you many blessings!
