I’m back from my trip to DC where I met our newest family addition : my new niece, baby Kira. It was a wonderful trip, and while I thought I was coming to the rescue of two overwhelmed new parents, I found my sister and her companion handling things like real pros. So I was there just for mental support. Baby Kira is the sweetest baby, and my sister did an awesome job decorating her room, so I snapped a few shots.
Kira’s room is mainly soft grey and pink, a very suiting palette for a baby’s room. One wall was painted white and grey with stripes to contrast with the rest of the room. Pop Icon Nightlight (heart) from Land of Nod, bed from Babyletto.
An Ikea Botkyrka wall shelf hosts a collection of items my sister dearly cherishes, from my youngest daughter Maya’s drawing and paper collage from Kindergarten to my sister’s old piggy bank collection. The sweet decorative wooden mushrooms from Tiny Frenchy and the Mozart musical box I got for Kira found their perfect spot!
Kira’s – or my sister’s I should say – favorite room accessory is the musical doll that sings La Javanaise, a famous song by Serge Gainsbourg. Every evening, after the bath, I could hear the melody in Kira’s room when one of her parents were giving her the last feed before bed time.
Tummy time is definitely not Kira’ s favorite hobby, but the colors and patterns of this soft play blanket clearly catch her full attention and distract her from the unpleasant tummy-time task, at least for a few minutes… Play blanket from Babyletto, rug from West Elm.
I can hardly wait for us to go visit my sister and Ryan, her husband, and spend Kira’s first Christmas with the girls this year. Stay tuned, I am currently editing a few pictures of the rest of my sister and brother in law’s home for an upcoming house tour. Xo, Si-
