Camp Baby Girl


Setting the Stage
For Camp Baby Girl I took a slightly softer approach using pink, brown, and white accents. To set the stage I’ve selected a soft green for the walls. To add some depth and interest to the walls I would paint murals (all white silhouettes) or use white decals such as the Birch Tree Decal by Pop Wall (1) and White Fox Decal by Grey Wolf Graphics (14). I would place the trees on one wall, perhaps behind the crib, and I would tuck the fox in a corner or next to a window. He could even be slightly hidden by draperies.
Riley Blake Just Dreamy - Medium Dot - Cream/Orange fabric; My Folklore, My Forest in Chocolate Brown - Lecien fabric (both available here); and a Pink Minky Dot fabric (11) would be used throughout the room. The Riley Blake fabric would be used for floor length draperies. I would also use it for the outward facing side of the crib bumper and as a 3” trim along the bottom of the crib dust ruffle. The Pink Minky Dot fabric is perfect for the inward facing side of the bumper. For the bulk of the bed skirt I would use the rich brown My Folklore fabric. I would also use the My Folklore and Riley Blake fabrics to whip up some of these great storage bins.

Furniture
I love the simple lines of the White Simple 6-Drawer Dresser (7) and White Straight Up Crib from Land of Nod (16). I have selected a bright white finish for both pieces to play off of the white wall art. The American Rocker and Ottoman (9) is also from the Land of Nod. Its rich dark brown fabric compliments the My Folklore fabric nicely, and the rocking chair seems like it would be right at home in a quiet, cozy cabin – perfect for our camping theme.

Accessories
To add some polish to the room I’ve selected the following accessories:
Bird Branch Mirror from Urban Outfitters (2) – I love this mirror! It compliments the birch tree decal/mural perfectly and adds another natural and very stylish element to the room.

Flower Hooks from Pottery Barn Kids (4) – These add a whimsical touch to the room and will be the perfect place to hang dress up clothes down the road.

Hoot, Hoot Switch Plate from Anthropologie (5) – This little owl is one of many that I have incorporated into the room as a nod to the little vintage owl collection that my sister inherited from our father.

Cheeky Squirrel Bookends (8) – I used these in the original camp baby and couldn’t resist using them again. They are so fun and will surely enhance my future niece or nephew’s love of reading.
Bird Pillow by Joom (10) – This white and green pillow really pops against the dark brown rocker and adds another nice graphic element to the room.

The Braidy Bunch Rug from Land of Nod (12) – The style of this rug says "cabin", but the colors say "little girl".

Owl Family Bamboo Mobile (13) – This is another wonderful mobile by Etsy seller Petit Collage. I featured her tree friends mobile in the original camp baby post

Lighting
Oopsy Daisy - Mod Owl Night Light (15) – Now that my son is two hes developed a little fear of the dark. At bedtime he insists that I keep his door open and the hall light on. Although baby won’t want it right away, a night light may make for better bedtimes during the toddler years.

Twiggy Lamp by Moth Design (3) - More white and more natural elements, what’s not to love?

Pendant I would use the same or a similar drum shade pendant light from the original camp baby, but in white and hung close to the ceiling so that it doesn’t draw attention away from the wall art.

ArtI have kept the artwork to a minimum so that the murals/decals stand out. The woodland ABC print (6) I have selected is another great print by Etsy seller The Paper Tray. Its like ABC print that I selected for the original camp baby but with pink letters mixed in.
