Sep03 Travel Nursery 2013
First off…I must announce the winner of our Ivie baby shop credit goes to the lovely Becky Lee. Email me and I’ll give you details.
Now…On to today’s lovely nursery here’s a little from the mother, photographer and nursery decorator Crystal Lindsey.
“Our family loves to travel and my husband and I love collecting vintage items, so this nursery is full of handmade & vintage items! I handmade the crib skirt and the beige cloud pillows from a canvas drop cloth that I picked up at a local hardware store, I added some pom-pom trim to the crib skirt and threading details to the pillows. The yellow chevron cloud pillow & the cloud garland above the changing table came from Revamped Art’s. The Jenny Lind crib & Hot Air Balloon mobile are both from Amazon. I made the “Explore” string art above the crib using a hand drawn design and baker’s twine. The green baskets above the changing table and the herringbone rug are from Urban Outfitters. The gold dot bed sheet & changing pad cover are from Land of Nod, and the black & white strip curtains are from Overstock.com.
A collection of vintage globes & a vintage suitcase that I found at a local flea market adorn the top of the book case. The vintage suitcase even has a STL airport tag dating back to the 1960′s!
The “Live with Passion” screen print embroidery hoop art is from Sweet Harvey’s. The four prints on the gallery wall are from MKKM Design’s. I hand painted the ornate frame at the top and I made the gold embroidery hoop silhouette with some vintage green fabric & gold duct tape. The barn wood hook rail is made from salvaged wood found on our family’s farm & I added 3 drawer knobs from Hobby Lobby.
Last, but not least the mint green chair & round leather ottoman were thrifted.”

Oh for crying out loud! The gold polka dots, I love you.
Here’s a sweet little note from Melanie, the mom:
We designed her nursery to have a soft, modern vibe. There wasn’t one overall theme but rather hints of travel, bold prints and animals. I placed several special touches such as a teacup from my sister that I used as a vase, the note that her dad wrote the morning she was born, and art prints that I hand painted to be reminiscent of some of my favorite prints by Anna Rifle Bond. It was such a thrill the first night we came home from the hospital and were able to change her, hold her, and rock her to sleep in the nursery. We had spent so much time creating a room for her that it was surreal to actually be there with her!
