Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! With the day quickly approaching I’ve been thinking about different ways to incorporate my favorite holiday into a room design that avoids using hearts and images of cupid. How about a love bird theme? A love bird design provides a refreshing option for your little girl’s bedroom and emanates a classic, cool vibe that your child will appreciate at any age.
1. Bedding - My inspiration for this design theme was Whistle and Wink’s Bird of Paradise Girls Bedding. All of Whistle and Wink’s designs are simple in nature, but accented with beautiful colors which capture the eye and inspire the imagination. I love the contrast of soft purple among the brightly colored embroidered birds. This design is available for cribs or twin beds!
2. Lighting - I chose the Sarah Lamp by Jane Gray for Stray Dog Designs. This unique lamp is handmade by artisans in Haiti and features two adorable birds on a paper mache tree branches. Both the stand and the shade are available in different colors, making this piece customizable to your room color scheme.
3. Children’s Art – I love DwellStudio’s Garden Multi Wall Art. This piece features a vintage bird sitting on a branch among bright leaves and bold flowers. Another great option is the Little Yellow Love Bird Canvas by Oopsy Daisy. This beautiful canvas of art features two adorable yellow birds among flowers and dragonflies. Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids is known for its dedicated team of artists who produce high-quality canvases in a timely manor. The artists reproduce their artwork on canvas in an affordable way, and the nice thing is that it is very easy to switch out the look of the room without the commitment of a mural on the wall.
4. Rug – For a nursery the Spring Meadow Rug in Dandelion by Colonial Mills Rugs would make a great accent rug in front of the crib. Another great kids rug option for baby or child is the Shaggy Raggy Rug in yellow by The Rug Market. Our shaggy raggy rug in yellow is an update on the traditional shag and is made of soft jersey. It looks great, is very soft to the touch, and the best part is, it can be thrown in the washing machine!
