A Tribal Glam Nursery


I know what you’re thinking… “What the hell is tribal glam, Olivia??” and to be honest I’m not sure I know myself.  I think I made it up.  But I was looking around our guest room — soon to be nursery — and was trying to re-imagine it for a little girl.  We have tons of wood tones and blush colored accents in the room already and it would be nice if I could incorporate them and save a penny… but they don’t exactly scream baby.

Here is what we are working with:


So I started thinking about adding gold.  And maybe black or charcoal for contrast.  And maybe feathers and some more geometric shapes to play up that duvet… and tribal glam was born.


It’s not a girly-girl room by any stretch of the imagination (let’s all have a quiet moment of prayer that I don’t end up with one of those), but I did incorporate some pink for her so I’m proud of myself for that.  And I loooove the idea of a dream catcher mobile, don’t you?!

For the headboard I think we’re just going to go with a hollow wood door stained a middle-of-the-road wood tone and mounted directly onto the wall.  And then we can have some fun with a painted design — maybe in gold.  Something a little like this, but smaller and darker in color:


Should be fun!
