Holden's Woodstock Nursery Artwork

The decision to decorate my son, Holden's, Woodstock nursery theme in a vintage style was made when my daughter and son-in-law found a vintage Woodstock poster they loved. That year was the famous musical event's anniversary and between that and the poster, they were inspired to create a musical baby nursery theme.




Since their home is mid-century modern and decorated in shades of green, yellow and orange, the poster was a perfect fit.



Holden's Woodstock Nursery Décor




My daughter chose cream colored bedding in an embossed circle pattern and a very simple dark wood crib. I painted a huge tree on the mint green walls and put orange cut-out leaves from JoAnn's Fabric in the tree, along with a stuffed bird put out for the Audubon Society that makes the actual call of the bird.

I made curtains out of a broadcloth print of tiny green, orange, brown and gold circles on a cream background and finished it with a wide band of orange and cream polkadot fabric. I made a coordinating quilt with the tiny dots on one side and a brown geometric print on the reverse side.

Baby Boy Nursery Pictures




I painted three pictures of the "Woodstock bird" in blue, green, orange and yellow and gave the same birds texture and dimension in a felt and yarn mobile suspended from an embroidery hoop that I stained to match the crib in Holden's Woodstock nursery.

My daughter bought an orange rug from Crate and Barrel to put on the dark hardwood floor and a tall, rectangular floor lamp from Ikea. In the opposite corner, we put a green leather rocker, above which we hung a picture my daughter received as a shower gift that has Holden's name on it.

Above the long dresser (which also serves as a changing area), I hung the Woodstock poster. Beneath it I put a small orange Crate and Barrel vase holding yellow dried botanicals, another Audubon bird, and my daughter's yellow gingham "Boogie Bear." I cross-stitched Holden's name on the tummy where a red felt heart had once had his mother's name embroidered.

Snoopy Bedroom
by: Dana

Thanks for your nice comment about Holden's Woodstock room. I know you were kidding about my designing you a Snoopy room, but I LOVE to decorate, so I just had to take a look at what's available. I found lots of Snoopy stickers on amazon.com that could be used as a pattern for a mural if you have access to an overhead projector for enlarging. Target has lots of cute Snoopy things too. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Snoopy's Woodstock
by: Anonymous

I found your cute nursery looking for Snoopy's Woodstock, not the music festival. But I couldn't leave without casting a vote and telling you how I admired your work.

Could I possibly talk you into designing a Snoopy nursery that I could copy to make my job easier?
