A Project For

Our First Baby


Portland, OR


As we do not know the gender of our baby, I've created a colorful nursery fit for either king OR queen! I chose green, aqua, and orange highlighted with white furniture to brighten the small space with my limited budget. I enjoyed finding creative ways to get the look I wanted while keeping costs down and had a blast mixing patterns too!

Design Inspiration

I wanted to create something bright, modern, and fun without being gender specific. As we are renting a small apt (with ugly carpets and wood trim), it was important to me to still create something fresh feeling for our new littlen!

Decorating Style

Functional. Inner-city living has many perks, but extra space is not one of them. Many of the pieces in our apartment have multiple uses or storage solutions, and the nursery could be no different.

Project Details

"Window seat" is an Ikea bookshelf with a custom pillow cover from an Etsy seamstress. The changing table is also Ikea, with another Etsy custom sewing job for the changing pad cover. Chair is the Corando Glider and crib is by Storkcraft

Favorite Items

The bedding sewed by baby's grandmother or my husband's and my own favorite music posters framed as the artwork for the walls.


I think the white vinyl pattern on the walls really made the room more whimsical without breaking the bank. This is also a great solution as we are renting our unit and it can easily be removed, as opposed to painting.

    Love it! It is a great look and will keep being cute and functional even as your littlen grows up into a kidlet! :)

    I’m not sure which stuffed doll you’re referring to. If it’s the extremely creepy one with the heart-shaped nose and bow-tie down by the books, I made him myself one weekend. (I clearly don’t know how to sew or use patterns!) The others are a sleep sounds sheep from baby’s great grandfather, the blue striped one from a friend in Seattle, and the Skip Hop Activity Owl is on the glider. I adore them all and hope baby does too! :)
