Baby Carter's Nature Themed Nursery Design
We were fortunate to have been given a lot of older furniture from family members for Baby Carter's nature themed nursery design. We took all the furniture and repainted / repurposed it to match the room's color scheme that includes earth tones and white.
To save on decorating costs we collected various logs including a huge 60cm diameter stump that we saw when we went past houses in our neighborhood that were cutting trees.
I then used a scumble glazing technique to whiten and bring out the natural grain of the freshly cut wood that we salvaged. Go here to see more
A lot of the decorative elements in this room were free-cycled from various sources.
I made the bunting from various fabric off-cuts sourced at our local material store. Next, a few boxes of artificial grass were added to bring all of the natural elements featured in the space together.
Finally, we bought a fluffy area rug in a cream color for a steal of a price directly from a supplier which served to tie everything up and add a warm, clean, loving vibe.
