A Project For
Our baby girl needed a nursery and I decided to design a classically-inspired Paris themed nursery for her, with lots of delicate pink touches and gold accents.
I really wanted the room to be classic and somewhat clean but with a lot of pink - we had our son first so I was so excited to decorate a baby girl's nursery! There are so many beautiful things nowadays that lend to Parisian themes so I thought it would be a great place to start. I wanted to make Jillian's room pretty and practical, and give her a room that she can really grow into over the first few years.

2 items - The Eiffel Tower canvas wrap from IKEA (I saw this years ago and had nowhere it fit into my apartment at the time. Now we own a house, and I thought my baby girl's nursery would be the perfect place for it! It was SO satisfying to finally buy this canvas wrap!)
I also really love the pink DIY shag rag rug I made because I scored an amazing deal on the fabric on-sale, and it took me weeks of work but kept me sane throughout the end of my pregnancy with Jillian.
Keep the pink walls subtle (I think it's really easy to let the pink colour overwhelm a room to the point where you might get tired of it). I still adore this paint colour!
Also there are a million decorative 'Paris' themed items available nowadays. So many in fact that I just ran out of room! Specifically check out Homesense and Indigo. Etsy is also amazing.
