I wanted to create a nursery for my daughter that was whimsical and modern with pops of color. I love the midcentury modern look but didn't have a lot of money to spend. I looked for bargains whenever possible, and many items were gifts from family and friends. Hopefully this room inspires lots of fun times and has no problem growing with her!
I knew we were going to reuse my son's crib, bookcase, and glider, but was hoping to put a feminine twist on these neutral pieces, so we found this Alexander Henry fabric at JoAnn's and went from there.
