- A Project For: Ella
- Age: newborn
- Location: Massachusetts
This nursery was created for my daughter, Ella. I knew I wanted to work with a yellow and gray color scheme and then add in touches of pink. The room is very small and though I had a lots of ideas, I tried not to clutter it up but keep it simple and add lots of homemade touches to treasure along with some modern items that she can grow up with and aren't so 'baby.'
I knew I wanted a yellow and gray room and when I saw the crib bedding at Target, I knew that was it!
I enjoy modern style with touches of vintage or handmade. Adding in that one of a kind piece is what makes it your room and not a show room. I don't like a lot of clutter in decorating. Just a few pieces can really communicate the look of a room and who lives in it. Plus, by using just a few items or items that can be transformed easily (i.e. spray painting a picture frame), you haven't invested too much into it that you feel stuck with what you have going on already in the room.
The crib bedding can be found at Target. I purchased the ornate frame that hangs over crib at IKEA and spray painted it gray. The white shelf also came from IKEA along with the white glass vase. The mama and baby fabric birds came from Vintage Green Limited. The gray stuffed owl is from Pier 1 Imports and the smaller pink owl is from Gush for Plush.
The hanging white doll house is very personal to me. It was made by my grandfather when I was a little girl. He is gone now and it's like bringing a little piece of him along my journey of raising children. I hope someday, Ella has a girl of her own to pass it on to.
