ORC- Week 4 Choosing Art

Kid's Room | April 22, 2015

I’m back to talk about choosing art for Jane’s room!

One of the biggest problems with Jane’s room is the tiny size.  I couldn’t fit a twin bed so I decided to go with a toddler bed:

I love the Jenny Lind toddler bed from Land of Nod.  I decided to push it against the far wall where the crib used to be.  One thing I started to worry about was that it would feel really low.  A bed is usually a great place to draw the eye to in a space.  You pile it with pretty pillows and put some art above it and bam you have a statement! I started to worry that this smaller bed would get lost in the room.  So I tried to think of ways to make it feel higher and bigger.  One idea I’ve had is to push it against the wall and a put the pillows against the wall to make it feel like a daybed.  I also want to put a BIG piece of art above it so that it will draw your eye up.
I went though multiple ideas.
I finally decided on the “Hello Cocky” print from minted in the 44 x 60 size. I liked how the coral balanced out all the teal.   I picked it up from the framer this week!
Jett named him “clucky”.

I also picked out some other prints for other walls in the room.

Stay tuned each week as I transform her room! Here are all the participants so you can follow along with everyone:
