Henry + Adela's Room {Operation Nursery}

finally finished the kid's room! there have been a lot of ups and downs along the way, but overall it was a lot of fun to finally make this dream come true. i have a kid's room!!!

i wanted a room that could grow with the children.  i went with grey, white and black as the main colors and let the toys, books and art create pops.  since they eventually will be sharing this room, i kept it gender neutral.

i would like to thank from the bottom of my heart the following sponsors:

areaware- animal pillows
babyletto- spruce tree bookcase
gingiber- silhouette chalkboards and owl illustration
perch ceramics- early bird pendant lamp
pomme- ergmont duck lamp
shak-shuka- seventy tree print and lucky boy sunday pillow, as well as tons of hand-holding along the way
similing planet- crib bedding set
ubbi- diaper pail (it's the best by the way!)
and a special shout out to oeuf for supporting the project.

we went from having a corner of our bedroom for henry to this to ...

  38. This room is stunning, I love it's simplicity. It's so easy to overdo things with kids rooms as there's so much to choose from, but this room gets the 'less is more' balance perfectly. I love it.

    Where is the plush tall panda/bear with shorts on on the bed from? He's adorable!

  39. Can you share how to secured the bookcase to the wall? I have a baseboard as well and am wondering how to do it. Thanks.

  40. It wasn't easy! I used plaster screws then got extra long screws. Honestly, I didn't do the best job, but I am going to find my email from babyletto and forward it to you if you don't mind.
