An eclectic mix of baby, nature, and global culture.
Another view of the crib. I am using the mobile as the basis for the design theme. The quilt is a family heirloom and was hand sewn in Pakistan. My mom repurposed it and stuffed it with a soft cotton batting, so that it would be cozy for a baby. Quilts can be a cute and colourful way to add cozy elements to a child’s room. Not to mention they may hold on to them long into their adulthood. Personally I would recommend making them yourself as that way it would feel more personal and special. This is relatively easy to do with the help of items such as a quilt pattern and a quilting cutting mat you may be able to create a simple but nice addition to you child’s bedroom.
The inspiration for this mobile came from a bird mobile diy project i found online. I was vacationing in Berkeley, California, when I came across a small gift shop with these wind chimes. I bought three and hung them from the ceiling with fishing wire. I love how the white hooks and clear string give you the impression that they are suspended in air. I found an added benefit for using wind chimes, babies love to hit them and hear it make noise! However, there can be babies who don’t like the chimes making unwanted noise. In that case, colorful ones such as butterfly wind chimes that may have a faint jingle sound, can be considered.
I found this photo frame set from a cool shop I found called Mindy’s Classic Finds – you can usually call the owner and ask her to set aside items that you are looking for. I’m all about great customer service, and will be a loyal customer forever! Inside are some family photos we took professionally – I printed some in black and white for contrast.
Here are some close ups of the items on the dresser. Personalized piggy bank was a baby shower gift, and the retro toy is from Ikea.
