Matteo's magical "Where the Wild Things Are"-themed nursery #Pimp my kid's room#babies#diy#nursery decor March 30 | Stephanie Kaloi This Where the Wild Things Are-themed nursery is definitely PIMPED OUT — Matteo is one hella lucky baby. I've never fallen so hard and fast for a themed nursery in my life! Everything from the hand-painted walls (just WAIT until you see the detail!) to the absolutely adorable little touches are perfect. All photos by singingcynic. The quilt draped over the crib was made by a family friend, and has the entire book laid out as the squares. WHAAAAT. The frames came from Michael's and the couple painted them — she copied the leaf pages from the beginning and end of the book and decoupaged them onto the edges. Genius! The blanket was a gift from a long-lost college friend who had no idea of the theme of the nursery and it just happened to match the Wild Thing's "sweater" perfectly! There wasn't a lot of space for books, so they purchased three milk-crates from Michael's ($12 each) and stained them with a leftover wood stain. A hammer and a few nails, some overflow toys, and voila!

Read more A children's librarian friend designed the mural, and friends helped bring it to fruition on the walls of Moishe's room. The room is closet-less, so they substituted a huge frame from an Ikea mirror that broke in a previous move, painted it yellow, and wove ribbon to make a unique place to hang sweaters, jackets, hats, and other fun stuff. How adorable are these crocheted Chucks?! Aww. See the moon on the wall? This is my favorite night-light ever. Don't be surprised if you see it again soon.

And the sweater blanket gave me goosebumps! Well done! 2 agree LOVE it!! OMG, I think I just wet myself. How awesome is this :D! I'd almost tell my partner to have a kid with me just to have an excuse to decorate a room like this ^_^ 1 agrees How fantastical! I want to decorate MY room like this! hah! 3 agree I love it! We have that same moon light! 1 agrees where is that moon light from? I've never seen it, it's genius! You can get it here! 1 agrees I LOVE Moon in My Room Lovely! Haha – Moishe is the name of the monster! Matteo was born on Sunday. AH-HA! I thought there was something funny about it when I typed it, but didn't get a confirmation. Fixed! wow wow wow BEST ROOM EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! this is ultimately my favourite children's book EVER! I want to decorate my study/den/sewing room like this, just for me! I think we all need to know how to make a storybook blanket, yes? yes! 1 agrees Is that print handmade? I think that would be lovely in ANY nursery/child's room! the framed "wild rumpus" poster was hand-painted by me. (though i fully admit to copying it from an etsy seller who screenprinted a similar one). How did these people get into my brain! Oh man, I'm going to be totally nitpicky, but I can't stop myself … those are crocheted chucks, not knit. Sorry! >.< (I am in awe of the nursery though) fixed. Considering that my youngest son has 4 paintings from WTWTA hanging in his room that I painted for him, I'd say this nursery is amazing! Love it! I love the quilt! How did your friend make it? I would love to make this for my little one! So cute, we are expecting our first and I was going to do a nursery with this same theme. Thanjs for the inspiration. It looks great. This. Room. Is. Absolutely. AMAZING! I LOVE IT!! Can you tell me what the base color is?? I love the green that you picked. Thanks! Sorry this is belated – I think it's Behr paint, "granny smith apple". Oh my god, I love your nursery!! My partner and I are planning to start a family soon and I'm so into the idea of a Where The Wild Things are nursery. I think I want to do the walls as the scene of Max sailing over the ocean, or in the forest. Greatness, I did the exact same thing a couple years ago and used that same Moon! I thought you'd like to know about one update that makes it 100x better… Get top of the line glow in the dark paint and cover the ceiling and walls with stars, of course painting only on the sky – it leaves an outline of the trees that makes the room better at night than in the day.
