What was your inspiration for the room?
I got my inspiration for the room from Angela. Initially, she was planning on having Gaby and her little brother Jon share a room. So, she made a boy/girl shared room inspiration board. But as time went on, she saw how sweet a shared nursery could be. Her inspiration research went in a new direction of a shared nursery. She asked Gaby what her favorite colors were and took her answers and just ran with it. “I knew the room needed to be playful with lots of colors and not too gender specific, since we are not sure if we will be having a boy or a girl. But I also knew that I wanted Gaby’s personality to shine through in the room as well.” Angela says.
Describe your decorating style:
It tends to change. But, for this room it was is a mix between Modern and Hipster Heritage, a mix of traditional items and flea market finds.
Gaby says she loves everything about her room but if she had to pick one thing as her favorite, it would have to be the tent. She likes to play with her dolls and animals in there as well as doing her homework.
