Alphabet Neutral Nursery

I love it when a neutral color really gets a chance to shine. This neutral nursery is so welcoming and refreshing. The crisp white furniture and accents have such a clean look against the warm tan walls.  Of course, the stars of this room are the alphabet frames designed by mom Kristen. Kristen says, “Since we started trying to conceive I’ve known how I wanted the alphabet wall to look.”  To make the wall she started with a collection of about 25 antique and modern frames that she spray-painted with Rust-Oleum Satin Heirloom White Spray Paint. She carefully selected fabrics for the backgrounds and then used white card stock cut with her Silhouette machine for the letters. I love how versatile this idea is! You can completely change the look just by your fabric selections.

This nature-inspired mobile was made by Kristen using fabric, yarn, and Styrofoam balls.
Can’t find a lamp shade that you like? Kristen took this one from mediocre to marvelous by painting it then wrapping it with jute.
The shelves on the wall were made from repurposed cabinet doors.

    At the bottom of the post under the "Resources" heading
    I listed that the sofas were from Plush Sofas (an Australian chain store).
    Our living room is really tiny (it looks bigger in the photos!) so they are compact little two seaters.
    We got them as floor stock so they were a great price.
