Design Inspiration

Click Here to see my Nursery Design Board

The room design was centered around the dresser/changing table. I loved the weathered-grey finish on this piece. I also knew I wanted to incorporate vintage wooden toys on display to give the room a touch of classic Americana.

Decorating Style

I love classic elements in design with modern touches.
