kk and crew's room




Well, here it is...Kherington and Crew's little room. I had so much fun putting this room together and finished it and took these pictures last Tuesday morning...just in time, since I went into labour on Tuesday night! (nothin' like putting it off till the last minute!!) Anyways, for such a tiny room I had to keep it simple, but I think the fabrics and colors make it fun...I was totally inspired by all the grays and yellows I was seeing online, and thought that would be a fun color combo for a boy/girl room...take a look!



This little Pooh bear was a gift from my dad and has been in all my babies rooms.



KK's bed...she LOVES her bed! Naptimes and bedtimes are quite easy around here! All of the fabulous bedding was made by my mama. We went out shopping together and picked out fabrics, I told her what I kinda wanted, then she sewed everything up. I looooove how everything turned out!!




Love this pillow!




*sigh*....the ruffles.




I'll be adding a picture of KK and Crew together above the change table, and I made the "I am a Child of God" print in Photoshop. Again, I'd seen alot of these online and just created my own. I made the little elephant shadowbox using scrapbook paper and this cute elephant template. Oh, and the fabulous knobs on the dresser are all from Anthropoligie.




Of course that empty frame will be filled with an adorable picture of Crew...




And, the yellow crib. I love it! (am I saying that alot?) I wasn't sure if the yellow would be too much, but after having a pink crib for 2 years, what's the big deal to switch to bright yellow, right? These clouds were in KK's nursery, and I have a big "C" on order that will go above the crib, too. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to make/add a mobile for above the crib or not...we'll see!




The gorgeous quilt and bumper pads made by my mom. Again, just loving the yellows and grays!




A few more close-ups...the "you make me happy when skies are gray" was another one I created in Photoshop. I love this quote 'cause my grandpa used to sing me this song when I was little. :)








And there ya have it! I'll still be adding a couple things here and there, but just getting the room this far before Crew was born was a huge accomplishment! It's tiny but functional for my 2 little babes...thanks for taking a peek!

I just have to ask, where are you ordering your big "c"? I have been on the hunt for R and C. I haven't found anything I love.

By the way, Congrats on your new baby. I have been a silent follower for some time now. I am always in shock at how much hair your babies have! One of my babies just turned 3 and she has less hair then your baby! Congrats, he is a cutie...and the name Crew...LOVE it!

I found your blog from your Big Picture scrapbooking class along time ago, and I just have to know what color grey you used! I want to do a grey room, but every color I pick looks too blue.

I have been following your blog for quite awhile now and just had to comment on the room...I LOVE IT!!! I am planning to do our master bedroom in grey and yellow and just wondered if you would mind sharing the paint color you used? It looks perfect! You and your mom are sooo talented! The room is amazing. Congrats on your little baby boy!

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

Really fabulous Talia! It is beautiful and beyond! I am an Edmonton blogger too and I have been following your blog since Gabby was born! All of your nurseries have been gorgeous. Would you mind if I shared this room on my blog as my 'fav' of the week in blogland? I would only do so with your permission! You got it going on girl! Angie xo

I love everything about this room! You did such an amazing job. Yellow and grey is my favorite color combo and you pulled it off beautifully. Might I ask what paint color you used, it's lovely. Congrats on your son!
Oh and by the way I have a daughter named Talia, nice name :)

Sarah said...

I must know where your daughters bed came from!

Julie said...

Watson Family said...

I have to know where you got that bed???? The room looks wonderful. Love it!

Talia said...

Okay ladies...the bed is from Ikea. Good ol' Ikea! (heehee)

The Parsons' blog said...

I found your blog through pinterest... I've been on the hunt for a good grey FOREVER and I LOVE the one you choose for the room (which is beyond cute by the way). Do you mind sharing the name of the paint??? Thanks!

Blessings.

This room looks so professional! I'd love to talk to you about featuring it at Baby Lifestyles. Please email me at editor at BabyLifestyles dot com if you're interested to discuss further. Amazing job!

stacia mikele said...

Talia, I know several people have asked already, but I would love to know where you got your k from. My son's name will also start with a k and I love the one in your nursery. I have looked at craftcuts-Times New Roman, but yours seems to have a bit of a different look.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Talia said...

stacia-

the k was given to me by a friend 2 and a half years ago...she had it cut by someone she knows, so it's not something that can be ordered or bought! so sorry!! i just painted it myself.

and i think some people had askied about the fabrics used in the room...my mom and i just went to a few local fabric stores and mixed and matched fabrics that we thought were cute. i don't know specifically what companies they were made by!

:)

stacia mikele said...

Talia,
Thanks so much for the reply. I think my husband is gonna be able to cut out a similar font using Apple LiSung Light. Love what you did with the shared room.

Libby's Life said...

Oh my gosh this room is so simple but yet so amazingly beautiful! I love the toddler bedding! It is absolutely adorable. The ruffles & pillows are so awesome... I want them in my room! You are an amazing decorator!

Christi said...

i love love this! can you tell me what the ruffle piece on the bed is actually? a sheet? a duvet? so cute.

Nicole said...

So so adorable! I just love it. How much fabric did you end up buying for the bed sheet/duvet and ruffles? I'm just transferring my baby to a toddler bed and this would be so cute on her bed.

Nicole said...

Also with the bumper pads what pattern did she use or site for the tutorial I love how its all one solid piece.

Paulie said...

Where did you find the bed frame? I have been looking for one for a few months and this is exactly what I'm wanting??? Plase let me know!!! Thanks

Rob and Darla said...

I love it all! Would also love to know what paint color you used(gray?)!?!

the.feeblefutts said...

Where did you find the rod iron toddler bed? I would love to get one for my daughter.

Camille said...

I have to ask you what paint color you used in this room? I found a picture of it on pinterest and it is the exact color I want to use in our room when we paint next week! Would you mind shooting me an email if you get a chance? thanks! camillelindquist@gmail.com

Aimee said...

I'm not usually a fan of yellow, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this room... it's so perfectly sweet! I have to ask - where did you find that large monogram? I'm on the hunt for one for my son Connor's room.

Ashley said...

Kimberly @ Seriously Daisies said...

I just seen this room on Pinterest, and I know it's been over a year, but I just had to comment and say that it is gorgeous. The yellow crib, the color combo, every single detail. Your mom sewed some pretty amazing bedding. Love it!!!! Have a great day. :)

Julie said...

I love the room!! Would you and your mom mind sharing how you made the ruffles? I would like to make a ruffle bedskirt similar to the ruffles you made. Beautiful!
