Remember when I did the reveal of the Winnie the Pooh nursery? Well we have since moved Evelyn into her own room downstairs and took the Pooh decor with her which means that the old Winnie the Pooh nursery needed a makeover!
Initially my thought was to do a nautical theme, because adorable! But as I was searching Pinterest for inspiration I came across a Peter Pan’s Neverland themed nursery and I was instantly hooked. I’m a sucker for storybook, imagination, fantasy goodness.
I kept the crib and a few pieces from the old gallery wall but everything else is new and on theme.
My favorite part of the room is probably the flying ship mobile. When I started making it, it was just going to be floating stars but once it was all done it felt like it was missing something and thus came the flying boat. If you know the story of Peter Pan, you know that he covers Captain Hook’s ship in pixie dust and uses it to fly Wendy and her brothers home. Making this mobile was a ridiculous amount of work but after seeing the end product, I feel like it was SO worth it.
I love that this room has so many elements of the Peter Pan story; Captain Hook’s ship on one wall, a teepee from the lost boys on another. Even Captain Hook’s hook is there to hold up a lantern for my little lost boy’s night light.
This has become one of my favorite rooms in the house. It’s so full of imagination and possibility. I’m excited for Remi to get older and find a similar love of the Peter Pan story and dream of going to Neverland.
