A Nursery Fit For a Music Lover

A musical themed nursery: the first step toward creating a music lover for life.

I know a lot of music lovers, which got me thinking: “A music-themed nursery would be so cute!”.  So, I typed “music themed nursery” into the old Googler and all that came up was classical music and dressers decoupaged with sheet music.  Hmmmm… not exactly modern.  Then I typed in “rock and roll nursery” and the results were even worse – crib sheets emblazoned with rainbow colored guitars and art that said things like “rock on” and “party like a rockstar”.  Ummmm…no.

My musical tastes are a little more M. Ward than Brett Michaels and I much prefer Bob Marley to Tchaikovsky.  So what does a nursery like that look like?  Well, I decided to round up some items I’d include in my nursery if I were going the musical route.  I like to think this is what a nursery fit for a music lover would look like.  Check it out after the jump!
