Real Room Tour: Elliot’s Eclectic Attic

I’m so excited to share this gorgeous boy’s nursery with you.  It has such a unique eclectic feel where there’s history and personality, yet it’s completely clean and modern at the same time.

Starting with Oeuf’s Sparrow crib in Espresso finish, you can see a modern heirloom in the making.  The rag style rug is country and casual, but in this space it adds warmth and texture.  The felted wool mobile from Sqrl & Bee Studio on etsy is adorable with the little hedgehogs!

I’m loving using antique or traditional storage furniture painted in bright, unexpected colors, and this dresser is topped perfectly with the polka dotted changing cover.  The artwork in the room, the Notre Dame Football posters, and the Chicago poster obviously have a personal connection.

The caned bentwood rocker is a stunning focal point in the room.  It is made totally modern with the red side table and Tord Boontje Garland Pendant (which looks ultra-expensive, but isn’t!).

Thank you Kari for allowing me to share your photos of this space.  You did an absolutely incredible job with the nursery and it’s a room I’m sure that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.

peggy-LoVE was my first thought, too. Would love to see where the room is in the house with those steps and outside door. Great Job!!

Great room and I especially love the use of color on the antique/vintage piece.

Thanks, Esther, for featuring Elliot’s room on your great blog! And thanks for the nice comments. To answer your question Jess, it’s actually a little office space at the end of our master suite – that frosted glass door with steps leads to the master bath, and the oustide door leads to a balcony. It faces west, so this room gets gorgeous evening light that makes it glow. Love it!

This is an amazing room. This space makes the Sparrow crib–I now kind of want this crib in this color/finish. I really like the color scheme in this room. It’s so unique and works perfectly!

I really love the polka dot changing cover. Can you tell me where it’s from?

I found it! Kidsline Peek-A-Boo Pals. No longer available. =(

I love the space in this room. I like the fact that it’s not too baby-ish and leaves a lot of room for making it more of a toddler/kids room. The sock monkey stuffed animal reminds me of the same sock monkey themed crib bedding I bought at AnnaBean.

I love the wood flooring with the light walls, amazing!
