Do-it-yourself mobiles are on the rise! A few weeks ago we posted a beautiful bird mobile for a little girl’s room, and here’s another take on it. Painting the branch white gives the mobile a fresh and modern look.

Gone are the days of “room in a bag” and Disney-themed wall paper. Nowadays, parents are opting to roll up their sleeves and spend time designing and assembling their little one’s nursery with the same consideration and taste as the rest of their home. Traditional pastel paint colours have made way for “grown-up” colour schemes and decor. Wallpaper with cartoon clowns and jungle animals has been replaced with modern graphics and sophisticated floral prints. Hand-sewn quilts, vintage artwork and “upcycled” furniture are all the rage, meaning parents-to-be are spending an awful lot of time perusing garage sales, scouring Pinterest and throwing themselves into the DIY revolution. Today we feature baby Easton’s nursery.

One of my more memorable vacations was our amazing trip to Paris when our daughter was just six months old. She was young enough to nap a lot and when she was awake she happily played with her toys in the stroller. The best part? Parents with young children get to skip the line at museums! When we got back I was inspired enough to create two pieces for her room from our trip using just a couple of Ikea frames, a few sheets of scrap book paper and some acrylic paint!
