With Spring in the air it’s hard to not want to make every room as bright and airy as humanly possible. This apartment up for sale in Stockholm is just too cute, and while all the MIYO suggestions are for new items, you could totally make this room your own with all vintage items on a reasonable budget. Have you ever gone bold and painted trim a bright color? I know what I’ll be trying this weekend!

We are pulling together the baby’s room, and I thought I’d share a little round-up of what we’ve got going so far! I can’t wait to see it come together. I wanted to keep things pretty gender neutral with some whimsical and natural elements to warm things up. Her room is small but sunny, so I wanted it to feel light and airy too. I also wanted it to be a room she can grow into… sweet, but not too babyish.
We painted the walls Cumulus Cloud by Martha Stewart with bright white trim. I love the paint… it’s gray, I guess, but with a definite light blue cast. Very soft and pretty. We bought a wood dresser at an antique shop and are thinking about making it a little more fun with some Anthropologie knobs (how cute is that owl?!). We bought an antique hexagonal mirror to go above the dresser (ours is way less modern than the one shown here, though). The polka dot rug is from Urban Outfitters, as well as the dot curtains and branch curtain tie-backs. We found a gray crate at an antique shop for storage. I loved the idea of a fun light fixture, but we really wanted a ceiling fan too. So we’re going to replace the main overhead light with an in expensive ceiling fan, but will hang this paper “origami” pendant light in a corner next to the dresser (which will double as a changing table).

Every time I see a Nate Berkus interior, I just about fall out of my chair with envy. They are always this incredible mix of masculine and natural textures, worn materials that just invite you to come in for awhile. When I spotted this room, it was no exception. What’s not to love about it?
Thankfully, Nate Berkus has a fabulous collaboration going on with Target, which makes his signature style realistic for anyone. Lots of brass, woven baskets, and rich textiles. Mix it with some nice leather pieces, new or used, and some bold graphic rugs, and this room can totally be your own.
