This week, I've spent some time volunteering as a room guide in the Charlottesville Design House. The first room I volunteered in was the nursery, designed by Andrea Gibson of Gibson Design Group. I loved this room because its design was so accessible. Several items in the room were from IKEA! I have a lot of respect for a professional designer who is not above using a little IKEA.
The real showstopper is the mobile above the crib, which is 100% DIY-able with just a branch, fishing wire, ribbon, plastic animal toys, push pins, and a hot glue gun. I love the bows at the top! This would be so easy to re-create, even if you are craft impaired.
I'll post the the professional images of all the gorgeous rooms as soon as they are available. But if you're in the area, stop by and take a look in person from now through May 22. It is well worth the $20 ticket (proceeds go to the local womens shelter) and there is something for every taste. I'll be there again on Friday morning, so come say hello!
