One of the really fun things that Yun and I did in preparing for The Dragon's arrival was to transform our rather plain, white-walled 2nd bedroom into a proper nursery. We wanted to make sure it would have the right feel for when our little bundle would come home from the hospital. While we decided against painting the walls, we added lots of color with wall decals and artwork from some of our favorite artists, giving the room some life, making it fun, bright and whimsical.

Check out some of what we did below:
This was a wedding gift from me to Yun. It's by one of our favorite artists – Mackenzie Thorpe's "Walking on Love".
These two prints are by the super talented Japanese artist - Yoshitomo Nara. We actually purchased a book of his artwork, cut out some of the pieces we liked the best and put them in frames we purchased at IKEA. Yun loves the DIY art projects!
This is a cute piece we found in Venice, CA at great little Scandinavian design shop – Huset. It's by a Swedish artist, Stina Wiren, called Brokiga Kalas.
Yun found some fun wall decals that we've used to surround The Dragon's crib. She often wakes up and talks to her new animal friends before beckoning her parents into the room.
This was a free poster Yun had picked up in Toronto years ago. We've had it all these year without ever framing it until now. I'm glad we held onto it since it complements the other colorful pieces in the room.
