Description

I wanted a nursery that would transition to a toddler/child's room with minimal effort, a room that would grow with my daughter.  I also wanted the room to feel relaxed but fun.  I hope my baby girl loves it as much as I have loved creating it for her.

Design Inspiration

The enchanted forest wallpaper is the inspiration for the nursery.  I knew from the moment I saw it, before pregnancy was a forethought, that I had to have it!  I love how it captures the four seasons, various animals, and random objects all scattered throughout.  But what I really love is how it sparks the imagination.  It's so easy to lose yourself in this mural... I do it all the time.  When I was pregnant, I used to lace up my boots in her room every morning before work just so I could stare at it.  My only regret is that I had to trim the top/bottom of the wallpaper to fit my 8 foot ceiling and 5 inch baseboards... (I lost about 17 inches total), and the fact that I had to cover up part of the wallpaper with her crib.  Unfortunately, the room just wasn't big enough to showcase the mural in it's entirety (if only I had more square footage).

Since the wallpaper is chocked full of color, I decided to paint the walls a neutral shade and purchase neutral furniture (the pictures don't do it justice as the colors are much more vibrant in person).  The accent colors I chose are various pinks, lavenders, and blue hues.

Decorating Style

I don't know that I have a particular style.  I just buy what I like.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Favorite Items

I actually have two.  My absolute favorite is the wallpaper!  Second to that would have to be the "I Love you a Bushel and a Peck" artwork because of its sentimental value to my husband.

Advice

Start early and scour the Internet for ideas.  If you have champagne taste and a beer budget then use the High-Low approach.  You can find really cheap versions of high price accent pieces at stores like HomeGoods, Ross, and T.J.Maxx. Splurge only on the things that you really, really love!  My splurge was on the wallpaper and glider.  And if you're so bold, try a few DIY projects... you'll be surprised at how crafty you are.  I fell in love with a birdhouse night light that sells online for $100.  I made an identical one for less than $30 (Michael's/Lowes).  Etsy and pintrest are really great websites.  In fact, most all of my decorative accents were purchased from Etsy.  I also love Anthropologie... full of whimsy (I just wish they made Baby stuff though).  Whatever you decide... HAVE FUN!

    Beautiful! I love the mural….so whimsical and fun. I like the pictures above the dresser…..I Love you a Bushel and a Peck. Like your husband…it is special to me because my mother sang it to us when we were young.

    Just beautiful! Would love to do this for my daughters nursery. How long did it take you to add the accent colors? The pinks, lavenders, and blue hues?
