Description

I wanted our nursery to have three elements: color, texture, & pattern. A room that felt SPECIAL! Something to reflect our personal taste, but still suitable for a baby. After deciding on paint and wallpaper, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work!

We love the lavender hues and how they compliment the espresso furniture. The extra "pops" of rich color & artwork keep it age-appropriate for our girl.

Fun, eclectic, modern, vintage - all rolled into one!

Design Inspiration

I was looking for the right wallpaper to "speak" to me. After deciding on this purple damask by York, everything else came together piece by piece. It was important to create a space that was appropriate for our little girl but also complimented the rest of our home. We love color and anything unique!

Decorating Style

Color, pattern, eclectic. I'm also CRAZY for accessories!

I usually start with one or two pieces I really love and build from there. In this case, I started with a wallpaper and built the room around it.

Advice

Look for pattern, pattern, pattern and accessorize! If you want a rich look like this, stick with darker furniture and use plenty of lamps for warm lighting. Do not be afraid to mix many different colors together (just keep one or two the main focus). Shop EVERYWHERE. Use old & new. Trust your instincts. Be patient and don't settle for anything less than "you!"

    Your nursery is beautiful!  I am working on mine with only 5 weeks left to go!  I bought a craigslist chair-great find, but I am loosing energy to reupholster it and to get it professionally done would cost me the same as buying new.  I love the chair you have.  Where and how did you purchase it from this company?  Thanks so much for your help!

    Thank you!! The chair was ordered through Buy Buy Baby. If you have one locally, you can visit the store or order over the phone!! :)

    Very interesting blend of textures and colors, and it works!  I gave it 5 stars.  The sophisticated room design allows the prints to really standout.  Visually eye pleasing without being too bright and candy-coated.  I can appreciate the look.  my nursery progress:

    I agree with busywith3boys!  I absolutely love this, I have not commented on a room yet either!  I’m in the middle of adjusting my little girls room to something fabulous as she at first had a gender neutral nursery since we didn’t know she was a girl.  Your room is now my inspiration!  It’s absolutely beautiful.  Thank you!

    Beautiful room! The colors, the textures and the patterns make up for a very unique and very interesting space. It is so rich in personality. I love all the prints you used and all the details — like the artworks on the wall and the decorative items on the shelves — you put into the nursery.
