When we found out we were expecting our third (and last) baby, I started envisioning what his room would look like I knew that I wanted to do an accent wall. I also love the modern farmhouse look with natural elements.
My inspiration started with a can of Annie Sloan paint that I purchased not too long ago. It is Amsterdam Green. I bought it because I was going to use it to repaint nightstands that desperately needed to be redone. Seeing how rich and beautiful this color is inspired me to use this as Owen's accent wall.
Now, as much as I love Annie Sloan paint, it's not my favorite to use on walls. I use a more durable paint for walls. My go to paint collections are: Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Valspar.
So, for Owen's accent wall, I chose Hunter Green by Benjamin Moore in an eggshell finish. It's a rich green color- comparable to Annie Sloan's "Amsterdam Green."
I knew I wanted a stark contrast to the rich green, so I went with Simply White by Benjamin Moore. This is a warm white that pairs well with a dark color.
So, now that the paint colors were chosen, we could move on to the furniture. We used the Graco crib and dresser set that we bought for our first child. Since "Babies R Us" is no longer in business, I was only able to find the crib online on Amazon. Unfortunately, I was not able to find the matching dresser. However, in the "Get the Look" photo above, I was able to find a matching set that looks similar on Amazon.
To complete the modern farmhouse look, I went with black and white accents with natural wood elements and greenery. I found a cute 8 x 10 geometric rug to ground the space and added two framed botanical prints to hang above his crib. I added a fiddle leaf tree, a round black framed mirror, and cozy elements including handmade blankets (thanks mom!), fabric baskets, and stuffed animals.
I loved watching my vision come to life and now that Owen is here, he can enjoy having a space of his own.
