Description

Glam shabby chic nursery for our daughter

Design Inspiration

My home decor style is gender neutral so I took advantage of the ability to go all out girly on this nursery.  I wanted something sophisticated and ultra feminine that my little princess could grow into.

Decorating Style

Shabby chic meets modern glam.

Project Details

This room began as a Den/Office and was orignally carpet with neutral tan walls and dark red accents.  We picked out a distressed black engineered hard wood, wainescoit, and a pale pastel pink for the walls to start the transformation to our little girl's dream room.

I knew I wanted to go with shabby chic white furniture with crystal knobs.  I ended up finding both dressers at a shabby chic store near my home.  One came with crystal pulls, and the other I swapped out myself.  I found a wooden rocker at the same store that I set in the corner with an antiqued side table and a small ottoman.

I knew I wanted wall letters but wasn't willing to pay $12/per letter at some of the leading retailers so I did some online research and ended up ordering the raw whimsical letters from a wholesale website.  I then painted them myself, covered them in an ultra fine black glitter, and hung them with light pink polka dot ribbon on crystal anchors.  I highly recommend making the wall letters yourself to create a totally custom project for a fraction of the cost.

The rest of the accents I ended up finding at odd and end stores.  I even found 2 toddler-sized black french side chairs with crystal buttons at a store near my home (not pictured).

Favorite Items

The beautiful bedding custom made by my mom and aunt, and the crystal chandelier I found on overstock.com

Advice

Have your bedding custom made!  Whether you have a friend/family member who is talented enough to make the bedding, or you find someone on Etsy, I highly recommend having the bedding custom made to your style.

    I love this room, if only for the combination of girly girl motifs with a hint of being rough around the edges.  I love how you used ribbons to hang the BROOKLYN letterings, I have not seen that before.

    Thanks ladies!

    Donna – I found it at BRU.  It’s a ceiling hanging that I opted to us in place of a traditional mobile.

    Love the light fixture most of all. I like the dark floor, but I think it would look better if you added a rug.

    Just how much did you pay for that chandelier?  Did you get that with the black cloth wraparound or did you make that yourself?  I must say, this is one classy room!
