Wild thing, you make my heart sing.

As I have 2 little girls, of course want a little boy. We all want what we don't have, eh? So being the planner that I am, I have been thinking of nursery designs for some time. I hate the look that happens when you buy a "set". It is so forced, not creative, too "matchy matchy". So I look to bring together a room by a central idea. With the upcoming release of the movie, I thought Where the Wild Things Are would translate into a fantastic nursery. It not only has the characters from the book, but also a forest type theme, as the book took place in ... the forest.

I went w/ an apple green, white, grey, and brown scheme. The boat mobile reminds me of the boat Max took to find the mythical place. There many stuffed animals of the characters and I would love to see them on a white wooden shelf w/ books. The wall decals make it more woody for me and the lamps keep it sweet. BTW: I only buy lamps and furniture for a child's room, that I would use in the rest of the house. I think it helps them to grow up with it. Also be on the look out for tribute art. Look at places like ebay and etsy. I like the twiggy bedding too. Did you know you can buy fabric and take it to some dry cleaners and they can make bedding for you? You can! And to finish it off there are beige walls (to let the green and grey pop) and a gauzy drape (it reminded me of the sails from the boat or a tent in the woods). Do you like it?


  1. I love this, AMAZING! You have to do this nursery when you have a little boy!

  2. Thank you so much! I keep making other nurseries but I always come back to this one. The hubs likes it best as well.
