I wanted a nursery that my daughter could grow up in, not one that would always resemble a baby. She won't be little for long so I designed a nursery that she could grow up in or at least last until she was ready to design her room. I also wanted something that was vintage looking with a modern flare to it.
My inspiration for this project was the color palette. We had just moved in our house and painted her room mint green before I found out I was pregnant. I designed her entire room around that color so I didn't have to repaint.
My decorating style is vintage/modern. I like to combine a little old with a little new.
The changing table, it was my great grandmothers buffet. I just sanded it down picked a paint color and repainted it. It was perfect for my theme. I also had the balloon art created on Etsy, each month I change the frame that tells about her that month. At the end of the first year I will be putting the balloon art in that frame. Each balloon has a message from someone who has visited her.
Don't be afraid to mismatch furniture, repaint furniture, or do somethings yourself. Start early!
