Description

A whimsical, traditional, eclectic nursery for our twin baby girls. Main colors: Robin's egg blue, coral and yellow. I had a lot of trouble uploading pictures, so if you want to see more please visit my blog: http://twoscoopsforme.blogspot.com/2011/07/two-cribs-exactly-milly-clarabelles.html

Design Inspiration

I started out with the colors I wanted to use most- coral and Robin's egg blue.  I love big prints, so that was what I chose next.  

Decorating Style

 I wanted it to be whimsical, sweet and a little eclectic. 

Project Details

I bought pre-made black out panels for the drapes and sewed the fabric to the front.  This made it much less time consuming and less expensive.  They were $15 at Wal-Mart.

Favorite Items

I started by making the cornice board above the window and the drapes.  The rest became my 'bed rest projects'.  My Mom and I completed all of the bedding while I was confined to the couch (I had nothing but time!).  After we finished this I decided I needed some artwork, so using fabric remnants I created the bird pictures and the mobiles.  The pictures actually tell a story of a mommy and daddy bird having two baby birds (hehe!).  There's a burlap nest involved-might be my favorite part. 

Advice

Pick the colors and patterns you love first then let the room come together around them.

    I love coral, too. And I think pairing it with robin’s egg blue was a fantastic idea. I wish there were more (better quality) photos showing more of the room’s details, though.

    Thanks for the comments!  I too wish that there were more (better quality) pictures!  I spent forever trying to upload to this website and had to shrink the ones that made it up!  But you can check out more pictures on my blog: http://twoscoopsforme.blogspot.com/2011/07/two-cribs-exactly-milly-clarabelles.html 

    The dresser and crib are from Pottery Barn, the knobs from Anthropologie
