Tips & Tricks Thursday
Today’s tip is all about adaptability.
Sometimes it’s important to be flexible in design. Interiors can evolve just like anything else.
Maybe a particular item is no longer in production (that’s totally happened), or you stumble across something you absolutely love and must incorporate in the design (that’s totally happened, too).
It’s a refining process, and it forces you to adapt the initial concept into something even better.
So what’s my overall point to all of this?
It’s being refined.
You might remember the initial inspiration board for his room…
Since that time, I’ve found a couple things to be no longer available (the exact crib), or not as functional as I’d like them to be (R has insisted on a cozier rug for lots of floor-time playing).
So I’ve adapted.
And fallen in love with a new crib and a few new pieces from The Land of Nod (love love love!)
We found, and fell in love with the new crib.
It’s the Oslo crib by Karla Dubois. Super stylish without breaking the bank. Yay!
We also loved the District Storage Bench from The Land of Nod. This will be perfect for additional storage under the window.
We chose to go with the Check Mix Wool Rug, that I’m totally in love with.
Plus, the style is more adult, so it can continue to grow with him.
We were very excited to get the crib…
…and put it together.
…and the finished product (crib only).
(Sooooo…. don’t judge the messy room. )
I love this crib, and E slept like a champ in it last night.
I can’t wait to put everything together. It’s been a long time coming.
This weekend we’re heading to Ikea to pick up a few more pieces…
