I've been waiting for an excuse to use the fabric from Kate Spade's Candy Stripe shower curtain, but nothing felt quite right in our home until I found out I was expecting a daughter. It was important that the tiny room felt airy, clean, and feminine but not too flouncy - she has two older brothers to keep up with so a fun edge was a must!

Design Inspiration

I found a funky orangey mid century glider on Craigslist, bought it, and then was dismayed that my husband was really into the upholstery on it and didn't want to have it redone. Then I remembered the Kate Spade shower curtain he'd once vetoed as "too girly," and knew it would be a fit for the nursery! I was at a standstill for a while after that, but came across the Color Study No. 4 print by Emily Rickard  and Red Door Design's "Vintage with a Touch of Modern" room on Project Nursery, which finally felt right and gave me the pinky/peachy/orangey/navy color scheme.

Decorating Style

Typically, I'm definitely pretty modern with an arts and craftsy twinge, but this room lent itself to a more eclectic, even hollywood regency, feel with the gilded accents and embellished accents.

Paint colors - Sherwin Williams Dover White on walls, Behr's Hawaiian Shell on ceiling and inside closet

Favorite Items

My favorite item is probably the changing table because it's so outside of my usual preferences. It's more whimsical and girly than is my taste, but the room is for my daughter so I'm practicing giving up control a bit with this eclectic piece :)


This room is teeny tiny, and has only the one little window, so balancing the artwork with which we wanted to add personality, with some white space, was paramount. We stayed away from my matchy-matchy tendencies by keeping with a generalized color scheme and added interest by layering patterns and fabrics, but staying in the color story so it didn't get too busy (I just counted 8 different patterns and textures, and that's without the rug, pouf ottoman, and laundry basket I'm still hunting!).

    I loooove that girl with dog painting. I saw it a long time ago and was so bummed that it wasn’t something I could buy! Great job!

    I love the detail of creasing the dots to display in the corners and adjacent wall. Fresh!
