Description

I wanted to create a baby girls nursery that was not too "baby" and not too "girlie". I think I succeeded on both ends, and love the result!

Design Inspiration

My husband and I are very ocean-minded people. We wanted our love of the sea to translate in the nursery. We displayed this through the art, and small details throughout the room. We only hope that our daughter will love the ocean as much as we do.

Decorating Style

I lean more towards modern, but not so far that the fun is taken out of the room. I like clean lines, and bright pops of color!

Project Details

We decided to leave the walls the existing blue-green color regardless if we had a boy or girl. Once we knew a girl was on the way, I introduced girlie features through my fabrics. I DIYed the curtains and crib skirt after a long search to find something fresh and colorful. Most of the artwork came from etsy.com

Favorite Items

I LOVE my curtains, probably because they were the most labor of love. I searched high and low for just the PERFECT fabric. After going through many samples, I finally found this fabric, and the colors and size of print were exactly what I was looking for. I DIY'd all 8 panels myself, and the final look really completed the nursery.

Advice

I kept everything very neutral and chose to bring out the the girlie touches with accessories and art. This makes it very easy to either convert to a big girl room down the line, or alter it into a little boys room if need be!

    Thanks so much everyone! The paint color is Benjamin Moore, Quietude. The fabric is called Dahlia Nest by Valori Wells. I bought it by the yard on etsy.com.  The rug I picked up from World Market a couple of years ago.

    I like the cool and refreshing colors you used. And it’s so calming to the senses, too. And I absolutely love the way you put up those lovely little details and the way you added those splashes of bright colors.

    The green/white/gray color scheme makes this a pretty room for a baby girl with a zen kind of feel to it. But those accents with pops of bright red (the mirror), orange (mobile) and pink (storage) add a very fun and intresting element to the nursery.

    Is that a new Benjamin Moore color for the wall?  I just went to their website and could not find it.  Thanks.

    @cjax01: I  just double checked the color. It’s actually Sherwin Williams Quietude. We color matched it at Lowe’s with Behr Paint.

    @Leahburkett: Thanks! The mirror is from Garden Ridge. It was actually a dark, matte black. I painted over that with pink arcrylic paint! Spray primed it first, and then sprayed a glossy finish after.

    I love starfish/seahorse/fish mobile! We did an ocean theme in similar colors, and I haven’t seen a mobile as cute as that one.

    I love this! Where did you find your curtain rod? I have the same corner windows and am having a hard time finding a rod for it. That is exactly what I want for it! Thanks!

    The glider looks like the Little Castle Monaco II, how do you like it??? I’m debating that one and I’m hoping it will hold up.

    Love, love your nursery! We want to have the same feel for our baby girl’s nursery. Clean, neutral and fun! I absolutely love the console with the fabric boxes. Where did you find it? Thanks in advance!

    Just curious if you have a tutorial on how to make the fish mobile? it’s EXACTLY what I want…or if you are finished with it, and willing to sell it? :-)
    Thanks-
    Kendra
