Lola’s room

I’m a sucker for name-centric things!
I went with this funky chair instead of a standard rocker because I think it will have a longer life expectancy in the room. 
I’m still unsure if I’ll use a bumper once Lola is sleeping in her crib. So I threw together this bumper by sewing a fabric sleeve for Sam’s old one. The whole thing cost about $6.
The Lola print is lyrics to the aptly-named song “Lola” by The Kinks. Then I happened to find that concert poster in a record store and knew it would be the perfect companion. Score!

 Instead of baby-focused stuff, I wanted to keep the room sort of rockstar. I like the idea of a baby’s room that can easily transition into a child’s room later. So to balance the pink wall, we paired it with an unexpected melon wall and colorful furniture. Avoiding themes allows for more creative freedom later when you want to tweak and update.
This print is a black and white photograph of a friend of mine’s hand that I got blown up at FedEx. FedEx can blow up black and white prints into any size for cheap- like .75 cents a square foot.  

…Because what little girl doesn’t want a disco ball in her room?
