[Subtle] Winnie the Pooh Nursery

Since I was pregnant with Evelyn I knew I wanted to do a Winnie the Pooh nursery for her. Well now she’s two and she has a little brother sharing her room but I finally made the nursery that I had originally planned.

I love the imagination and stories of Winnie the Pooh and thankfully Evelyn does too. But I didn’t want it to be like WOAH! WINNIE THE POOH IS ALL OVER THESE WALLS! EEK!! So I did a more subtle version as opposed to just buying all the Pooh paraphernalia ever created.

Instead of covering the walls with images of that silly ol’ bear, I tried to capture the essence and silly fun of the hundred acre wood.

The pinwheels were my way to bring in a little extra color and whimsy. It makes it feel like you’re playing out underneath the blue sky in the hundred acre wood.pooh nursery 004

“Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders.¬†What does “under the name” mean? asked Christopher Robin.’It means he had the name over the door in gold letters and lived under it.'”

There is no hundred acre wood without at least one beehive.

The bookshelf is the main focus of the room and it contains that only “toys” not put away in the closet. I want my kids to have the same love of stories that I do and I figured it’s best to start them young.

The banner over the mirrored closet doors is my ode to Winnie the Pooh’s hero party for saving Piglet. If you don’t know the story, I highly suggest you read the book.

My gallery wall is a mix of family pictures plus some Pooh Bear fun. I have maternity photos from both pregnancies, plus each of my sweet newborns next to their initials.

The quote is by A.A. Milne, the author of Winnie the Pooh, “Did you ever stop to think and forget to start again?”

The shelves make it easy for this little button to see all her books so she can decide what to read next.

I painted the dresser this bright coral color. I was a little nervous that all the bright colors in the room would be overwhelming but I think it turned out very happy. And my crudely recovered rocking chair ties all the colors together.
