before i was even pregnant i wanted a room for my baby that evoked the calm & serenity that the beach brings to me. i live in az and miss visiting my favorite beach on a regular basis. the first element i committed to using are the starfish around the border, which were centerpieces in my wedding. we built the color scheme & accessories around the palette we had in mind and the bedding we found that most closely fit. i painted the canvas painting myself!
