i started out with a picture in my mind for our nursery - a canoe shack on the edge of a hidden lake, vibrant colours, rich wood tones, time worn, but loved. not entirely unlike the rest of our house, but this would be an opportunity to incorporate some of my beloved treasures that haven't found a permanent place elsewhere.
as i started gathering, i was almost shocked to realize how well these pieces coordinated with each other since i've been collecting various pieces for the better part of a decade. vintage wooden deer that were a wedding gift to my parents, a quilt and sheets i used in college, Matt's favourite orange leather chair we purchased in New Brunswick, a clock that was a christmas gift from Matt, a task lamp i purchased because i liked the colour. some of it i've gathered more recently with the intention of putting it in this room - an antique teak single bed frame, a vintage grey wool military issued blanket, and the crib which was a generous gift from my parents.
i can't wait to see how the rest of it evolves as we finish the room over the next few months!
