A Project For
Abigail's nursery can be described as playful with both modern and feminine elements. I enjoy DIY projects and found inspiration through Etsy and Pinterest.
Abigail's nursery was inspired by the colorful and playful prints of Lilly Pulitzer. Not only did we want the nursery to be visually stimulating, but we wanted the room to be a place that she could grow into. There are personal elements of my husband and I throughout the room, which makes the nursery that much more cozy.

Don't be intimidated by DIY projects and make sure that the nursery will be a comfortable place for mom and dad too.
