I'll Eat You Up I Love You So, a Where the Wild Things Are nursery with Mohawk Home #ilovemymohawkrug

I have been planning and replanning the baby nursery for months on end now, and have fine tuned every last element our little boys nursery. I am so head over heels in love with it!!


Since we are using our existing crib (1), and an EXPEDIT unit (6) that we already have, it's really just the accessories and decorative elements that we need.

Everything is centred around the story Where The Wild Things Are, so there will be a framed print or two, and certainly a crown on his dresser (ahhh!! HIS!!). To bring an element of texture, I love these storage boxes from IKEA (7). The EXPEDIT unit will act as his dresser, and these storage boxes as the drawers. I love their texture and stitching and when I saw them, knew that they would be perfect for this theme.

In terms of pattern, we are going to bring in a few patterned elements and I am so happy with our choice of area rug from Mohawk Home (3). The Pool Zig Zag Rug in blue brings a tone on tone pattern so as to keep it low key, but the darker lines pack a punch and give great definition.To say #ilovemymohawkrug is an understatement!

For sheets and curtains, we are keeping it simple. Polka dots in navy and white from the Land of Nod, then a little color blocking for the curtains. I haven't decided if I will DIY the curtains...a distinct possibility and a way for me to work in some metallics for his room. Perhaps swap out the mustard for some gold?

The lamp I am still working to find, and am confident that I will be able to find something locally sourced. Then to cap it all off, we have our Nighty Night Owl from CloudB (9).

There certainly are more elements to whip up for this little love, including a mobile, the crown, and who knows what else. Lots to do, and only a few months until he is here!

My favorite part of the nursery is the use of pattern and the pairing of the zig zag rug from Mohawk Home and the polka dots from Land of Nod. They compliment one another really well, and bring just enough pattern into the nursery to give it dimension and depth.
