A serene, fresh, and feminine nursery for our baby girl!
I had originally wanted to do bold hot pink colors, but once we chose the name Lila I realized we had to do purple! The name has several meanings in different languages, including "purple" or "lilac". From there, I decided I wanted to do something crisp, fresh, and feminine, so I stuck to lilac, white, and silver-gray, with a flower, bird and butterfly theme.
I tend to like eclectic/exotic with lots of color. But I ended up with a different style for the nursery! I think it has more of a soft, feminine and organic feel.
I don't really have a lot of DIY skills, but I put my husband and myself to the test by doing lots of DIY projects! We refinished the dressers--they were mine growing up. That took a lot of work. I somehow managed to create the LILA wall hanging myself, as well as the silver pillow with the lilac flower. I also redid the trim on the lamp--it used to be gold.
It's hard to choose. I like that we were able to use my childhood dressers. I also love the tree decal.
Let yourself be inspired by something and then go with it!
