    Very whimsical and girly. I’m sure your baby girl will love this room. There are a lot of interesting decors and interesting artwork that will surely capture her attention.

    A lot of very lovely and charming details. And your chandelier’s beautiful. I also like the tiny animal figurines below the framed Alice in Wonderland artwork or poster.

    Love that you weren’t afraid to go with the deep brown.  I think it’s such a lovely color that most are afraid to experiment with.  My living room is bright red and chocolate brown, and I get tons of compliments all the time.  The brown, pink, blue and white are really gorgeous together.  Love the vintage pieces!

    You know what I admire most about this nursery? It’s that you did a great job mixing DIY, vintage and new stuff.
