Aidan's Dreamy Room in Germany Nursery Tour

@shessomelicious - yes I definitely had some help with the paint and 4 pieces of furniture being donated to the project (crib, dresser, closet, mini bookcase). Everything else was out of our pocket or gifts from close friends and family but largely out of pocket.

@redhorizon - Money was definitely an object which is why some pieces were brought in from other rooms in our home (like the Eames chair). But of course, I saved up for everything because I knew to decorate a nursery wouldn't be cheap. You can easily create this room on a budget though - the crib could be swapped out for an IKEA crib in white, you can paint any dresser white and turn it into a changing table, etc.

How does the soap get shaved in the first photo, wouldn't you need to press down on it with as you are shaving?

D. Porthault is my favorite but I don't own a single set. Most of my bedding suits me fine and is all the luxury I need. I sometimes think we fret over things that in the end, do not make that much of an impact on our overall quality of life. In fact, for me, buying $1K sheets would impact my life negatively!

My husband owns 3 vintage suitcases and though they are not stacked they are in his office being used as storage. He has one on top of a cabinet, the other on top of his bookcase, and the third beneath his seating.

That is lovely, though the pattern looks a bit strong when cast on the walls/ceiling at night though I can't tell if it's the photography, bulb or the fact that everything else is off. Perhaps a dimmer switch and a lower watt bulb would do the trick.

I just hung out with Katja Behre during the holidays, she is a great lady -- very talented and lots of fun.

I agree about lovely Jeanine, she is definitely going places.

This is such a cute space, I like the quirky accents and all that happy color. Their bedroom reminds me of my grandparents bedroom, almost exactly the same decor and colors but in a fresh, modern way of course. This is charming!

I featured Alvhem back in June, there is a gorgeous apartment that was for sale on their site that was absolutely breathtaking -- and a beautiful example of how well a small city apartment can be decorated and organized in a very BIG way...

This totally reminds me of where Bruce Willis lived in The Fifth Element.

It's very nice, the bathroom is my favorite and I love the layered bedding in the first photo, the duvet on top of the spreads, so original.

Love those. I'd paint the base white or black though.

I have a $2,000 sofa from Room and Board and after 3 months I noticed saggy sofa syndrome. After nearly a year, I see it big time and I fluff and flip them daily. It's very depressing to say the least. It's definitely the construction of the cushions and the fabric. I had to return my first sofa from them as it arrived with a broken leg and squeaky frame, so I'm not about to write to them to ask for a replacement for this one. I guess I just need to watch less television and sit on the floor!
