Real Room Tour: Rainbow on A Rainy Day

If I had a girl, this is just the kind of room she would need.  When I stumbled upon these fantastic photos on flickr, I couldn’t wait to show them to you.  Michele put together a fun, colorful space for her daughter to grow up in.  Have you ever seen a room with such dark walls that is so bright and cheerful?   It’s like that special rainbow with a backdrop of an extra dark raincloud.  Absolutely amazing.

The first thing that really jumps out is the colorful Granny Stripe Baby Blanket.  Yes, Michele made this gorgeous piece herself and it was clearly the jumping off point for the rest of the room.  Such beautiful inspiration.

I love seeing the Subliminal Baby Letterpress Prints from sycamorestreetpress used in a room, and the gray Oeuf Sparrow crib is super chic against the dark walls.  The paint color is Iron Ore from Sherwin Williams.

I’m a big fan of Offi’s My Pet Lamp, and the Dachshund is my favorite.  I may have to work on a Dachshund round up soon!

Michele used Blik’s Alphabet Zoo in this ultra creative changing area.  How great is the chalkboard wall there?!  I think that even my dad might be able to figure out a diaper change with everything labeled there ;).

I love the pop of red of the bookcase, and the mobile Michele knit may be the most awesome mobile I have ever seen.  Can we please pressure her to open an etsy shop and share these with the world?  The print to the right of the bookcase is Tutti Frutti by Hand & Eye.  The Dream Menagerie Rug is from Anthropologie and adds great color and interest on the floor.  Do not shy away from placing rugs over carpeting.

Thanks to Michele for letting me share this amazing space.  You have a very lucky baby girl!  You can read more about Michele, her family and the nursery on her blog, Screamy Mimi.
