the baby's room has one large window. we previously had plain white curtains on the window, and while i liked the contrast with the dark blue walls, i thought that maybe we should do something a little more "fun" for the baby. so i found this ikat dot fabric below, and my mom made some curtains. i really wanted to install a light filtering roller blind behind the curtains, but sadly ikea has stopped making the enje blind in the size that i needed. i ended up purchasing a black out shade instead (why does ikea still make the black out shade in larger sizes??) it's not very pretty, but it's functional and i've been told that i'll want something that fully blocks light in the baby's room. anything that helps with sleep is good!
i don't remember when i first came across the animal print shop, but i really liked the idea of using these animal photographs in the baby's room. i haven't decided which prints to purchase (i love so many!), but i do have 3 white ikea frames and am planning on hanging them above the baby's crib.
