My husband and I are music lovers. In fact, our daughter attended her first concert in utero at 4 months. She attended the Mumford and Sons concert!
Her room was inspired by the type of music we love : cool, calm, comfort.
We used neutral like colours and added a large white wainscoting look all around the room.
I had custom artwork done by an artist that I found on etsy. Lyrics from the song, Below My Feet, by Mumford and Sons, was completed and custom framed and hung above her crib. The lyrics are as follows: keep the earth below my feet, let me learn from where I have been, keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn.
