My daughter Emerson's colorful nursery was inspired by gift that someone gave me of a photo of a mariska doll  that spams 'You are beautiful inside and out'.  The nursery is a collection of colors, textures, patterns.  We played with a balance of hard and soft and love the way it turned out.

Design Inspiration

My daughter Emerson's room was inspired by gift that someone gave me of a photo of a mariska doll  that spams 'You are beautiful inside and out'. 

Decorating Style

I am not really sure that I have a specific style.  For Emerson's room I just bought things that stood out and made a lot of the artwork myself.  It is defiantly very bright and colorful little girls room.

Favorite Items

Don't rush to finish!  My husband and I did not know the gender of our baby until she was born (we also moved into our house 2 weeks after she was born).  We waiting until we knew for sure if it was a boy or girl as I wanted the nursery to be geared towards the gender.  We purchased things slowly and made a lot of things ourselves.  We just finished the nursery completely maybe 2 months ago!
