A Project For

Vivienne

Age

Due April 30th

Location

Kansas City, MO

Description

I wanted to create a nursery for our daughter that was sweet, girly and unique.

Design Inspiration

For me color and pattern was the most important thing in the room. I found a piece of artwork on Etsy that had all the colors I wanted to use; a super soft light pink (the shade of a ballet slipper), hot pink and aqua. I also found an image on pinterest of a bunch of different patterned pillows used on one bed. It inspired me to mix a bunch of different patterns in the room.

Decorating Style

Definitely eclectic! Our house is a mix of traditional, modern, and vintage. I wanted our baby girls room to be the same. The less "cookie cutter" the better!

Favorite Items

I absolutely love the effect of the Ikea light fixture. I had seen it used in a couple of other nursery's on Project Nursery and I knew I had to have it! It creates a soft light and reflects flower petals on the wall. For $50 it is quite a statement piece.

I also love how my Granny's chair turned out. I like the size of the chair, which will be perfect for our little girl to crawl up on her own and hopefully read books someday.

Advice

Don't be afraid to try something out of your comfort zone! I had never done wallpaper before and it made me nervous to pick out something that was so permanent on the wall. I am glad I did because it really ties the whole room together.

It is definitely time consuming to create an eclectic nursery. I spent a lot of time searching out the perfect items, but in the end I am glad I did. There are so many personal touches that make it unique and special just for our little girl.

    I think it’s nice that you opted for soft and light colors for the walls, the furniture, the bedding, and even for the rug and curtains. Because of the soft shades, the other colored details really pop out — like the mirror, the vintage prints, and the throw pillows.
