Description

This is our sweet baby girls nursery. My husband and I had so much fun putting everything together for baby Sally.  We hope she loves it as much as we do. Check out my blog for a video tour and a list of vendors.  http://moskemonkeybusiness.blogspot.com/2012/01/nurseryall-details.html

Design Inspiration

We decided to go with aqua, lime green and hot pink. No real theme....just whimsy and fun. We used polka dots in various parts of the room to make the room super fun!

Decorating Style

Fun, whimsical, playful, and colorful.

Favorite Items

I LOVE the crib bedding. As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be in the room. That was the inspiration for the room. I also love the chevron rug and art on the walls. Anything that makes the room original is special to me.

Advice

Pinterest and Etsy will be your best friends. We got so many ideas from those. Don't be scared to get in there and try some DIY projects. It makes everything more special when you made it yourself.

    Hello- I really like the way you have done the nursery. Can I ask where you have bought the “rocking” frog from?

    Thanks

    Great job! This is absolutely precious and so cheery! It also has just enough ‘stuff’ to make it warm and inviting, but not at all cluttered, so it seems very comfortable.

    Oh, how I love this! that chevron rug is perfect in that room and the pom pom trim on the curtains with the white sheers against that great wall color. YUMMY!

    Where did you get the frame? Also, did you paint the letter or did you midge podge?

    Thank you! Precious!

    LOVE the colors in this nursery, and am actually going to use it as inspiration for my baby girl’s nursery! That chair is more unique than most gliding chairs I’ve seen because of the ruffled skirt. Do you have a link to the website of the store you bought it from? I live in NC and am wondering if I could order it from here?
    Thanks!

    Love the unique and beautiful color scheme! It’s funky, but still very, very pretty and girly! The crib bedding is really gorgeous!

    Thank you everybody!! I found the frame at the Nashville flea market…it was actually a mirror. I used Modge Podge and put scrapbook paper over the mirror part and then hot glued on the letter (paper mache from Jo-Anns that I spray painted). I think IKEA has a similar frame/mirror right now that is black…you could spray paint. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00091967/

    The chair is from a local store called Premier Fabrics. Here is their site: http://premierprintsfabric.com/aboutus.shtml.

    Yes, I think it gives off enough light, but we also have huge windows in the room. It came with a small thing at the top and then we actually bought a ceiling medallion too.

    These are the exact colors we are thinking about. I saw a room on pinterest w/ a chevron wall; but I’m digging your rug. Any tips on where to find that?

    Your baby girls room is adorable! By chance do you remember how much fabric you needed of each pattern to make her bedding? I love everything about her room.

    Thanks,

    Emily

    Sarah M.,

    Is the paint that you used for the frame a spray paint or a brushed on paint? (I found a “glossy ???? berry spray paint at Lowes. Could that be it? Thanks! I love your room!!!

    Thank you so much for all your tips and tricks! I would love to try to make that adorable mobile. Couple of ?’s though…where do I find that ring you used? Is that like a Hobby Lobby or Michaels type thing? What is it? :) Then the other question..do you remember where you found the little dragonfly punch? How far apart did you put your little dragonflies? I know that sounds silly but I follow directions to a tee. :) Love, love, love it! Thanks!

    Thank you!!I got the ring at Hobby Lobby in the sewing section. Ask someone who works there to show you. It was gold so I spray painted it silver. The dragonfly punch came from Amazon…it’s the big punch….not the little one. I placed my dragonflies a few inches apart.
