We finally finished our magical woodland nursery and I am absolutely in love! Rather than forcing the typical gender stereotypes (I mean…I don’t even know this person yet!), I wanted to create a mostly unisex nursery that encourages a healthy imagination since that’s what I remember most from my own childhood. We would gather around as my mom told elaborate stories about gnomes and fairies that my brothers and I fully believed and lived. They were so magical and real to us that I wanted to start my own child’s life out with that same sense of possibility and wonder. I combined stuffed animal taxidermy with a large painted mural of a magic forest, neutral furniture and the most modern-looking nursery essentials as possible. I already posted about some of the elements in the room, but the final result below really brings everything together beautifully. I hope you feel inspired to keep things simple, magical and woodsy for your baby too!Sources:
