I set out wanting to add as much color as I could to the big white room that was going to be the nursery. We rent, and the walls are wallpapered, so decals don't stick to well to them. I am also a crafter and love sewing, so I wanted to make as much as I could.
I found a picture on Pinterest of a beautiful baby girls nursery that mixed a bunch of different patterns and colors. We weren't going to find out our baby's gender, so my goal was to do something similar, but gender neutral.
Eclectic. I love modern and classic looks, so it is always hard making design decisions.
Crib, Rocking Chair, Footstool, Changing Table: IKEA
Small Shelf: Walmart
Fabric for the crib skirt, bumper trim, rocking chair and footstool cover, pouf, curtains and changing table cover: JoAnns Fabrics and IKEA
Bunting: DIY from fabric scraps ( I used pinking shears to cut them out so I wouldn't have to finish the edges)
Felt Toys: DIY
The bunting, which I think helps pull all the patterns together, and the pouf. I had never made or sewn with piping before, so that was a challenge for me.
Don't be afraid to mix patterns. I was until I started this room. I started with the Alphabet print for the crib skirt and just kept looking for prints I liked with complementary colors. Shopping online actually made it a lot easier. I could add fabric to my cart(without lugging heavy bolts around) and see if they complemented each other. The selection is also a lot better online.
