Decorating Style

I would describe our decorating style as a blend of eclectic, modern cottage.

Project Details

If it seems like it shouldn't cost as much as it does then perhaps you can make it!! We also love to take free items most people would throw away and turn them into beautiful features for a home. The mural above the crib is made of toilet paper rolls. We saved them for around 7 months, and then cut them into approximately 3/4" strips. We used a hot glue gun and finishing nails to attach them to each other and the wall.

     The bench under the window was made by my husband out of an old picket fence he rebuilt in our yard. Those cedar pickets had weathered for 40 years, and now they make a great clean line yet rustic addition to our baby's nursery.

We try to add little touches even to the store bought items to make them unique and set our space apart.

Favorite Items

It's difficult to pick one item we love the most. We love each piece so much. We think the distressed yellow bookshelf was one of the best vintage finds. The wall mural and bench are also some of our favorite items in the room. Many hours were put into both of these pieces.

Advice

Stay out of baby stores! The only piece of baby furniture in this room is the crib. We wanted to make investments in our pieces. This furniture can be in our child's room until she moves out, or it could fit perfectly into another room in the house. We also kept it neutral so we could use it for a baby of another gender in the future.

    this room took all of my ideas from inside my head and gave me a great visual.  I love it!

    Great work on this room!  I love those branches with the personal messages, that is a lovely touch.  Those toilet paper rolls are amazing!  Am not sure that I could replicate that though, perhaps a tutorial would help :)

    This is one of my favorite nurseries ever! Can you give sources for the chair/ottoman, prints above the bookcase, and the rug? I love everything about this room!

    Thank you all so much for your remarks. The bedding is Dwell Dots. Though I don’t believe it’s available anymore in yellow. They may still have it in the brown and white.

     

    The chair and ottoman are the Gus Modern Sparrow Glider and Ottoman. If you google it, you can find some dealers. The prints above the yellow bookshelf were bought at a local Atlanta art shop called Young Bloods. But they are printed by a company called Roll & Tumble Press who also has an etsy store. They actually have a few of our prints on there. I’ve posted the link below. The rug is West Elm Bello.

    Best of luck with all your nurseries!!

    I completely forgot to ask- what color did you use on the walls? I’ve been looking for a gray to use in my nursery but having a hard time finding one that isn’t too dark or too blue.

    Did you make the curtains?  If not, where did you get them.  If so, could you tell me the name of the fabric?

    The paint is Sherwin Williams Harmony. It is a custom color. I tried to write down the code for the color below.  The curtains were made by an etsy artist.

    Sherwin Williams IFC 7012

    BAC Colorant        OZ        32        64       128                                B1-Black                   –            6           1          1                                Y3-Deep Gold         –            2           1          1

    Not sure if these are the right codes, but hopefully it is and it will help.

    The “c” is from Joann’s but the “a” and “e” I wanted specific fonts for. I made them out of styrofoam and wrapped them in yarn! Hope this helps. Best of luck with you nursery!

    Believe it or not, the crib is from Wal-Mart. It is the Park Lane Crib. It was less than $300 shipped. All eco-friendly & non-toxic construction.

    I love this nursery! How did you make the twigs in the vase? I’m totally DIY-challenged and I was trying to make out what material they are… are they wrapped in yarn? Also, where did you get the small green mirror?

  19. 19

    Thank you Shear2316! The twigs are wrapped in yarn. I will warn you, though, this is a time consuming project if you pick a twig with little branches. I am not sure what you are referring to as far as the mirror since we don’t have one in the room. What picture are you looking at?

    Your room has a lot of stuff going on the walls, but your editing process based on color and texture doesn’t make the walls busy- just purposeful and full. Great Job!

    Simply amazing!  I love the depth and coloring.  It definitely looks like something you spent weeks on rather than opening a box from a baby store.  You did a great job!

    I just LOVE the bookcase. Do you have the name of the antique vendor you got it from? I really want something similar for our nursery!

    Love the colours of this room. I have been looking for yellow curtains but not found any I’ve liked. Can I ask where yours are from, what make?

    You guys did an incredible job on your nursery! Not sure if you mentioned it already but where is the dresser/changing station from. It’s so beautiful – love the clean look.

  36. 36

    Beautiful Nursery! By chance where did you get your rug? We are looking for a nutural color rug for our bedroom and having a hard time finding a good one.

    Thanks :)

    I’ve had my eye on that same glider but can’t find any reviews. I’m wondering if it’s comfortbale with the thinner arms. It’s such a great style.

  38. 38

    Beautiful Nursery! Where is the dresser from? I’m on what feels like a never ending search for one!

  39. 39

    Hi, Sorry for the delay on the response. I hadn’t been informed there were comments. The dresser is vintage (50’s). The brand is Drexel if that helps with a search. The rug is from West Elm. It is the bello rug. I would NOT recommend it under any circumstance though. It sheds worse than anything I’ve seen. I LOVE the glider. It’s build for ergonomic use. The arms are just right for nursing and snuggling the baby :) Congrats to you all :)

    Hi, I absolutely love this nursery and think it is so adorable! I was wondering where you got the print that says, “mind your manners”, and where you got the stuffed animals on the bench!

    Sincerely, Lenndon.
