In August, Miriam over at the FLOR design blog talked about adding a 'Second Layer' to her house. And I think adding space for Baby has done just that. It's a second, more lived in layer.
Just as a reminder, here's our Baby inspiration- minus the use of bumpers.
Here's Kitty hard at work sewing up Baby Goodness:
In order to incorporate baby we essentially gave her the North and South Walls of the bedroom, and the East and West are still for us.
What used to be 'empty space' on the North wall:
Is now Baby Berry's corner of the room. We framed the ABSea Poster, hung our first anniversary present, stuffed the Ikea dresser with the Anthro knobs full of baby goodness, and the super popular BabySmart Cooshee Changer.
An up close Baby Vignette with flowers. The Pink Converse were a gift from me to Mr. Spice. Mama Sugar made the box for my Baby shower- the cover is a collage of all the cards that were given to my Mom when I was born- so they are over 30 years old! And the Cup with the engraved W (our last name): it was my Grandmother's or Baby Berry's Great Grandma's Silver Baby Cup. I tell ya this is one loved little Berry.
As for where this little lady is going to sleep. On the South wall here's her Argington Bam Bam Bassinet all ready to go. The decal is from Etsy- so cute right? And the blanket and crib skirt are homemade. The bird on the right is for all of her barrettes and hair clips when she gets older.
Here's a side view of the bassinet with bow. The best part of this bassinet and crib combo- we can wheel it any where in our little tiny apartment:
As for the West side of the bedroom, we finally added that second layer and framed our Wedding Ketubah on my side of the bed:
And just a reminder of the east wall, our picture collage, which is almost the same two years later:
And here it is with the second layer, and a bit of up lighting if I do say so:
If you are playing BINGO, I think that covers: flowers, a vignette, space for a little one, art, and up lighting!
