A Project For
I was looking for a nursery that my daughter could grow into. I did not want something that was too "baby" but something that even a tween girl would enjoy.
I have always loved the color Navy. So I knew I wanted to use Navy, but I wanted something different than pink, so I went with Coral. When I designed the room about a year ago, coral was a hard color to find. Now its everywhere so I have been able to add touches as I find them. I started with loving the imperial trellis design and went from there. The shade of coral started with the crib skirt that was from Restoration Hardware. Everything think just started to fall in place from there.
Classic with a modern twist. I love vintage pieces, as our family grows I incorporate the classic and vintage pieces with family friendly livable pieces. At the end of the day, its just not practical to have rooms that are not kid friendly with small kids.

I love the accent wall, it came out great and makes the room. I also love all of the gold accents, some are vintage and some are new but they all tie in together nicely.
I wanted to do the nursery on a budget. After months of searching I decided to go with the Jenny Lind Crib. Believe it or not it was much harder than I expected to find a solid white crib. I looked a few convertible cribs from Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware but I did not want to be tied to a head and foot board for years to come. The Jenny Lind crib is very reasonable and classic looking. This way if my daughter uses the rails as a teething toy, its okay!
