This nursery is for our upcoming "Baby Sister," as we call her. Our 2 year old little girl used this room as her nursery and we recently moved her to a big girl room. We kept the wall color the same plus kept a few of the furniture pieces but reworked the colors and fabrics.
I knew I wanted to keep the wall color so I worked within that framework. I first found the fabric for the curtain panels. I had seen it months ago and held on to a swatch of it. I refound it in my stash and thought it looked so great with wall color that I went from there.
Fabric and color!
The curtain panel fabric is called Lovely and was bought at lsfabrics.com.
The white bumper was found on diapers.com and the crib was a hand-me-down my husband painted black.
The crib skirt was made from Amy Butler sunspots I purchased on fabric.com and the strip of plaid fabric ( also on pillow on glider) was purchased at my local fabric shop.
The quilt my mom made was a gift to this baby girl. She used fabrics that matched the room, napkins with ruffles and the tea towel in the center with the butterflies was cross stitched by my late grandmother. It not only was a sweet gift, but I appreciated the significance.
The rug is Tangerine Dream by Dash and Albert.
The gold mirror was purchased at Lowe's a few years ago and I moved it into Baby Sister's room.
The lamp I found in my garage and covered the shade in Annie Selke's pink link, also bought at a local fabric shop.
The dresser was a hand-me-down that I painted in Artichoke Hearts by Benjamin Moore.
The glider is the Dream Glider by Pottery Barn; however, they don't have this style anymore.
The fabric on the back pillow on the glider as well as the bolster in the crib is Anna Marie Horner's Lovesme Lovesmenot in golden and I purchased it at Hawthornethreads.com.
The baby sweater over the glider was knit by a friend and I recieved that at my baby shower. Little did she know, it worked in our new nursery!
The paintings over the small bookshelf were done by my husband and myself. His sunset painting his mom held on to for years and I was so happy to incorporate it into this room. My flower painting I did recently and it brings a cheeriness to the room. The bookshelf was a vintage store find.
The changing table/buffet was made by my great grandfather. The changing pad holder my husband made and I painted Artichoke Hearts by Benjamin Moore.
The mirror was a vintage store find. The plates I purchased a few months ago at Anthropologie and I was so glad they worked in this room.
I am not sure I have a favorite item. I started sewing more between my first baby girl and this upcoming baby girl, so I sewed most of everything in this room. What an accomplishment! I also love, love, love the quilt my mom made that is over the crib.
Experiment with color, fabric and pattern. You will be surprised what you have will work and what looks good together.
