You guys remember the Bold and Bright Baby + Mood Board, right? I’m helping Audrey Camp outfit her nursery in preparation for her daughter, whom we are calling The Hazelnut. Today I’m sharing the product board for this design with you guys. This is a selection of all the things (or pretty close alternates) we’re really getting for the littlest Camp.
things // camping mobile + striped rug + white crib + patterned sheets (similar style) + solid sheets + crochet blanket made by Audrey’s mother (find similar yarn here) + mini triangle wallstickers + pendent light + orange drawer pull + mountain pillow + fox pillow + blue cart + vintage Wagner rocker + camping prints in custom colors + bookshelf + dresser
I love this part of the design process. Everything gets really real. Remember we had already decided on these lovely prints, so the next big thing was rug selection. The Camps live in the top floor space of their apartment building so they have lots of interestingly angled walls and skylight-esque windows, think nearly triangular prism-shaped rooms. All this interest makes for limited space to hang artwork and no way to hang traditional curtains. We also knew we would’t be painting any walls because of strict rental rules. Which means that the rug is the major focal point in the room and makes or breaks the whole concept.
We spent weeks searching for the perfect rug and scoured web sites and shops, both here in Scandinavia and in the US. We had to account for design, quality of materials, softness for baby faces and price + import fees. Finally, Audrey found this great resource for rugs in Scandinavia. She pinned everything with a bold pattern and we narrowed down the results together. I love the final selection of the Gabbeh Indian Blanket in hand loomed 20mm wool. I think it’s got the right amount of boldness and camping feel that’s slightly reminiscent of a Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket. It was worth the long search. It’s perfect.
Vinyl wall stickers are a great way to add pattern to a room without committing to something more permanent like wallpaper. I love Ferm Living’s Mini Triangles, I think they look like tiny tents! We’re going to apply them randomly and all over of one of the two flat walls in The Nut’s new room. The other flat wall will hold a wardrobe and IKEA KALLAX storage shelves along with this super cute (and cheap) IKEA RÅSKOG cart, which will be a mobile diaper changing station.
Probably one of my most favorite things that will be going into the new baby room is something I didn’t even help pick out! This beautiful vintage Hans Wegner rocking chair was a Christmas present from Jon to Audrey. So sweet! It fits just perfectly into the room, lending a bit of gravity and history.
So, there you have it. We still have a couple months to go before everything (including The Nut) has arrived but I’ll be sure to share some snap shots when it’s all ready!
