A Baby's Room- Imagination Grows here

(Personalized Block- Tree by Kerri Lee)
I really wanted to do something a little untraditional for a baby's room and I wanted something that would stimulate baby's brain and also something soothing. I also thought about what kind of room she could grow into.  Since I am born and raised in tree filled- Portland, Oregon- I wanted to tie in a little bit of Oregonian culture.  We picked the theme forrest- because we love of the beautiful trees here and of course the woodland animals!  The color we chose was a soft aqua.
I fell in love with these decals from Land of Nod.  My mom gave me this beautiful quilt and I think it's going to be something she will have forever!
We used a cloth shower curtain for the curtain and love the happy little trees. Mobile made by me :) I hope she likes it - right now she can only see about 12 inches from her face and just started discovering her hands and likes to bat my husband in the nose.

As a baby, I would have adored this room ... and it would have set me off creating characters at an even earlier age!
So well thought out and chosen ... and as I have a new granddaughter (4 months now9 it especially appeals because I am into 'baby thoughts'.

This is an incredible effort Erika and looks so much more different than most normal baby rooms which I know is something that you were shooting for so well done, it looks amazing and that baby should really appreciate it some day when you show him how special his room was back when he was that age.

Nora's room is so cute - I think we picked almost the same color for the walls. She is going to love it for years to come!!

I just noticed that you named your daughter Eleanor!!!! I was SO close to naming my daughter that! It was my grandmother's name! We were going to call her Nora or Elle! I still might use it if we have another girl:) Great name!

Erika, a belated congratulations from me on the arrival of your baby daughter! How wonderful! What a lovely room you've created for her too. Love the idea of using the shower curtain as a curtain!
