Design Reveal: A Romantic Little Girl’s Nursery

I just finished this little girl’s nursery a few weeks ago and am so excited to share it with you all.  The owners of this nursery were looking for a space which was feminine, classical, romantic, and comfortable. We created a timeless space where a family will love reading and playing with their little girl. The color palette is soft with layers of light pink, taupe, cream and gold.

The inspiration for the nursery came from a fabric and bedding set called Angel Toile.  The clients loved the soft pink with peach undertones paired with taupe and cream.  The fabric set a romantic and timeless tone for the room for all items going forward.

We kept the walls the original taupe color but added a little unexpected surprise by painting the ceiling a very soft pink. The glider & ottoman set in the corner create a wonderful resting spot to feed and read to this little girl. And the green chandelier casts beautiful accent lighting into the room.

Now this would not be a complete little girl’s room without an amazing closet.  And what better way to make a closet even more special than to wallpaper the inside (and fill it with spectacular clothes). This is actually a flocked wallpaper so the raised flowers add a little more dimension and interest into the space. We also lined the drawers of the dresser with the same paper.

The mirrors above the dresser are on of my favorite items in the room. They  are a one-of-a-kind antique mirror set which will become heirloom pieces to this family.  We just loved the feminine delicacy of the collection.  Since we could not place them too close to the top of the changing table for safety reasons, we filled the blank space with an adorable mini mural of two love birds.  A mural was also painted over the crib (again for safety reasons) in a light whitewash of pink, white, and bronze.  The scrolls and leaf pattern on either side of the “A” mimic the design found on the carpet.

For more photos and details of the rest of the room please visit the Gallery and my blog Nursery Notations.  A special thank you to Life Iz Photography in Los Angeles for taking these amazing photos of the room and letting me share them with you.

    The vintage mirrors are incredible. I wish I had them in my room! The idea of filling the space with a white mural is great – adds to the room without actually pulling you to it. A great touch.

    Thanks for sharing.
