My friend Lilly, mother of Kyle, tagged herself on all of Kyle’s owl pictures on Facebook. When her friend Valeria saw the mobile, she wanted me to make one for her daughter, Mila. Communicating by e-mail, Valeria sent me some pictures for reference, showing me the bedding she wanted to put in Mila’s nursery and some owls she had already bought to match.
|The bedding is from the Hayley Nursery Bedding Collection at Pottery Barn Kids.|
|The owl plush dolls are called Penny and Joy from Pottery Barn Kids.|
The small owl is Penny and the large owl is Joy.
I loved what Valeria had planned for Mila’s nursery. I took cues from the vibrant colors of the bedding and plush toys in order to add my own twists to the owl mobile for Mila. I used the same basic pattern for Kyle’s mobile, but in order to make the mobile more feminine, I used pastel colors for all the owls. Each owl had white eye roundies and tan bellies to keep a consistent look. I save the dark brown color only for the branch so that the mobile would look light and pretty. I also added little white flowers with yellow buds to the vines because girls love flowers!
Valeria was kind enough to send me pictures of Mila’s finished nursery. It looks like a room straight out of the Pottery Barn catalog! I especially love the wall decoration that reads, “You are a dream come true.” I hope Mila loves her new room and her new owl friends!
Thanks again for joining me this week! See you next week!
