Alice in Wonderland Nursery

Last week, we had our third child and first daughter, Aisleyn Rachel. The name, pronounced “Ash-Lynn,” like both of her brother’s, is gaelic in origin. It means both “vision” and “spirit of Ireland.”

My major project for the last two months has been an Alice in Wonderland themed nursery.

As this is our planned last child, I had hoped to go all out on this nursery. We chose the theme of Alice for a myriad reasons. First, the story of Alice serves an extended metaphor for the changes and difficulties and wonders of a young girl growing up and choosing who she’ll be. As well, Alice is the story of a girl who rescues herself through her own courage, cunning, and curiosity!

The gallery shows off the final nursery. The challenges were many. Pink and its shades is a very difficult color to work with without over-doing it. The quotes were a particularly fun challenge with a great solution. The primary focus was to keep it simple, not “cartoony,” and implement key plot points of the book into the decor.

A major point of interest is the Magic Mirror. Yes, it does move and it does talk – I’ll be posting a whole write-up on that one in the future.

This has been a dream of mine for a long while – every princess needs a magic mirror. A few key pieces were gifted by friends. A majority of the remaining items were garage sale/clearance pieces that were redone by us.

Finally, there are a lot of secret points along the way– I’ve hidden quotes and elements for Aisleyn to discover in the room as she grows up.

Oh, I know this site is for moms. I'm a dad. Yes, I did the nursery as a gift for my wife and our daughter!
