Design a Bird-Themed Nursery
Sarah Pope designed this beautiful room for baby Annalee. She found inspiration for the wisteria branches above the changing table from a Land of Nod catalog.
Pope kept the decor simple yet purposeful. The bird and flower arrangement by the crib gives the area a fun focal point.
Pope painted the branches and frames white so that they would work better with the nursery. The colors of the birds complement the grey walls.
We love the artwork over the crib: It uses the bird theme without being overwhelming and works well with the blue wall.
The bird pillow and rocking chair work well together without one overshadowing the other.
Distract your baby from his diaper changing with these colorful creatures flying overhead. They fit right in with the green drawers and chair and the robin's egg blue wall.
Have Baby's older siblings and cousins draw their own bird artwork for the nursery.
This framed bird brings the theme subtly to life. Once you're finished with the nursery, it would work well in an office setting.
Instead of painting the walls blue, try putting up wallpaper. Set the tone for the theme with this fun print.
