Maebri's nursery is an eclectic mix of old, new & handmade items. It's bright & cheerful & I'm hoping makes her happy when she gets here. I wanted the space to inspire creativity as she grows, but be cozy & relaxing at the same time. I knew when I started working on the design I didn't want it to be 'matchy matchy' or purchased straight out of a catalog from one store.  I started with the art & the rest of it just grew as I found each item from my favorite little shops in Dallas. I'm excited for her to get here so she can enjoy her special space.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for the nursery started with the artwork. I have small art galleries around the house & I wanted her room to be no different. Art makes me happy & I wanted her to have a colorful, playful & creative space that was full of fun & inspiration. 

Decorating Style

Eclectic...a little bit of contemporary, bohemian, colorful & always combining a mixture of old, new & handmade.

Favorite Items

There are a few favorites, especially the childhood items. But, if i had to choose... one would be the framed fabric piece of art I made that has a sweet quote & is hanging above her crib. The other being the repurposed milk cart turned toy cart that we added wheels to, as well as framed it in pieces of fabric to soften the edges.


Start with a piece that you love & build around that. It will all come together if you decorate from the heart & include items that are meaningful.
