A Project For
A chic nursery full of textures and patterns for our sweet girl.
I love pink and wanted any shade to go well in the room to contrast the strong navy. I also love all kinds of textures and patterns so I wanted to incorporate that with a geometric wall stencil and fabrics with polka dots and floral motifs. I found all kinds of things on etsy and at random places I shop. I got a lot of inspiration from Project Nursery (the Anthropologie wall letter and Ikea book ledges seem to be in everyone's nursery now-a-days!...and rightfully so). I hadn't seen a pink and navy nursery that I just loved so I pulled a lot of things together to make one that I did. I made a lot of things in the room including the roman shade and cornice out of a panel from PBK, the tissue balls, and painted the canvases on the wall. I think it turned out wonderful and my husband and I are really proud of all our hard work.
I don't think I have a distinct style. I get an idea in my head and I just run with it. This time it started with a color scheme and went from there. I find things everywhere from Goodwill to Pottery Barn Kids and try and make it all mesh together well.
