My son's Nursery

(click on the images to get a better look)
Last week I photographed Lucas' room. A friend of mine who lives overseas recently had a baby girl and has forever asked me to send her pictures of the room and I never seemed to find the time. So, I decided to post it in Belle Vivir instead. We haven't changed much since Lucas was born. Back then I was obsessed with iron beds but I didn't want to look too over the top (like in a J Lo's nursery kind of way).

I wanted it to be sweet and imaginative overall with a vintage kind of vibe. So I covered the crib's wall in a blue/greenish seagrass wallpaper to soften the iron balusters and enclosed the bed between two ikea wardrobes to give it a cozy feel. I re-covered the sconces shades in an ikat cotton fabric that I love. The bookshelves are a combination of storage cubes and a vintage Library card file drawer storage we bought at an architectural salvage store.

The first time a guest friend saw the room and spot the Love print by Made by Girl she said that no wonder she felt the room was put together with love and care and Yes, this was a labor of love. The print above it is Evren's (Hubby) first hand writing that his mom kept all this long. I had it blow out at kinkos and framed it as art. After all art is whatever touches your heart. I am very grateful that my special mother in low has kept all these beautiful meaningful things and we've been able to pass them on to Lucas.

This little guy is perhaps my favorite decorative piece, after the watercolor behind it, from the room. I even look like him when I wear my trooper winter hat, my aviator glasses and one of my St. James sweaters, really. This little guy was one special gift from his grandmother who brought it all the way from Montmartre two years ago. The watercolor behind it is one of my favorite things in the room also because his grandfather painted it and it's perfect to me.

Who said that compartment drawer organizers are only for drawers? Here I used them to display Lucas' socks in order to have easy access.

I covered the back of the wardrobe in a Brunschwig & Fils Pivoine from Paule Marrot Editions and the cars inside are part of a Evren's own collection since he was two.
This room is filled with special meaningful lovely things.
