LIFE IN PHOTOS :: Aveline’s Room Tour

Happy Monday, everyone! I’m hitting the ground running this morning. My dear sis-in-law arrives in a few days for a week-long vacation, so I’m whipping the house into shape.

As I was tidying Aveline’s room — and doing laundry, and singing along to The Lumineers, and stopping Aveline from throwing away all her broken crayons — I realized I haven’t posted a tour of her room in a long, long time. I was going to wait until I finished the big “Forever Young” typography piece I’m designing, but I’ll just share that later when I’ve finished it.

Here’s her eclectic little room!Aveline's room tour via Oaxacaborn - Huge framed canvas of Paris, bunting, paper lanterns, blankets over chair and doll

LITTLE STYLE :: Aveline’s Room (and her newest Felted Owl!)

Good morning! We’re way overdue for a little sneak peek at Aveline’s room, right? I don’t think I’ve posted any pictures of it since we moved to Florida.

I recently won this adorable little handmade felted owl from a BlissFull Essence / Evenswood Owlbums giveaway. Isn’t he ridiculously cute?  I told Christine I’d send her photos of the little fellow in his new home, and I thought I’d share them with you as well.

We seem to be amassing a collection of owls, which I am totally okay with. (Remember the hand-appliqued owl onesie?)

Here’s the little owl on top of Aveline’s dresser next to Lotta from Charlie and Lola and some Urban Outfitters Owlets (no longer in stock). I don’t remember where we purchased the plush lemur.

Aveline hasn’t officially moved into her room yet (her crib is still next to our bed), so her room doubles as a guest space. My mom handmade the gorgeous duvet cover you see below.

We love textiles and books around here! My mother-in-law made this beautiful quilt — you can usually find out on our living room floor with a little Aveline on top of it.
