Thursday, an empty room, and Etsy

So we have decided that once a week one of us will take a space and "design" it using only items from Etsy- just some enthusiastic amateurs, and the site we love, taking on various projects. Every Thursday either a room in a home or a venue for a party/gathering will be tackled by one of us...and Etsy.
As you may have guessed, this is my Thursday. I am going to create a toddler boy's bedroom. The first order of business was deciding on a theme and I thought a forest inspired space would be fun and just different enough to be interesting.

The bedding: This quilt was just perfect- love the colors, the design , and it looks cozy.

The furniture: Furniture shopping can be a challenge , but some serious browsing leads to a handsome, child-sized rocking chair.....

Bed and chair will only be more welcoming thanks to this pair of owls -

and a gnome.

The art: Some friendly woodland creatures (uniquely represented in bold digital art) for the walls.

Personalized art for the toddler starting to recognize his name. This seemed just right for the room.

A mobile looks good in so many spaces and this colorful pinwheel mobile with an earthy, "twiggy" pattern could hang just about anywhere in the room.

The accessories: Some grassy bookends, forest animal wooden toys, and stuffed squirrel and fox round out the look.

Just for fun, some gnomes and toadstools make any forest complete.

The storage: To keep everything in order, a toy box that is a piece of art.
