Eco Minded Nursery Wall Mural from Dr. Seuss' Lorax
Our Ultimate Eco Friendly LORAX Baby Nursery Wall Mural was the result of our determination to decorate a Dr Seuss baby nursery for our daughter. GO HERE TO SEE MORE
This was our first baby and we wanted something unique and different for the room. Both he and I have a favorite Dr. Seuss tale, The Lorax so out of all the themes to pick from; this was the one we chose.
We went to work on collecting an assortment of colorful decorations and painting ideas that would put our daughter, Sawyer, in a magical forest with an underlying social message to inspire her early in life.
During the research stage when we were gathering baby nursery ideas
for our theme, we picked four pages from the Dr. Seuss book that we thought would tell the entire story on four walls. We then color matched all the colors from the book to colors at the local paint store,including orchids, grass green and lagoon blue.
My husband purchased a projector and sketched general images on each wall, also adding several personal touches (for example, we added the Lorax above a cloud in the sky, overlooking his forest after he leaves due to pollution).
Meanwhile I picked out furniture and upholstery that fit into the wall designs well - cherry woods and bright swirly colors added to the whimsical theme.
We went online and were lucky to locate several stuffed animals from the Lorax story and added those as well. Since there were no Dr. Seuss
crib mobiles, or Dr Seuss wall decals
that we liked in the baby discount stores, we filled in with rainforest themed accessories and painted everything by hand. Our LORAX Baby Nursery Wall Mural
alone took 7 months to complete.
