We created a chandelier-filled, Tiffany blue nursery with massive amounts of storage.

Design Inspiration

This is our first baby (a girl!) and we wanted a calming blue background, but not a "baby boy" blue color. After getting the chandeliers and blue color nailed down I fell in love with the Michelle Armas prints, which pulled the room together in a modern, playful way.

Decorating Style

I love clean lines and natural light. I prefer walls with one or two features to draw the eye instead of a full "art wall."

Favorite Items

The large Michelle Armas print (That Bowtie I Like) is incredible for resting your eyes while in the glider. And the modern mobile from Etsy seller TheWonderlandStudio is sure to be a serious favorite- it floats and moves constantly even when the AC isn't on. It's mesmerizing!


Don't be afraid to stick with a few solid elements and then stop there- while there are many beautiful nurseries with large art walls and tons of items on their shelves, sometimes less is more. Having everything you need stored away can be just as comforting as a "highly decorated" look.


  • Make a wishlist and then watch for sales or coupons- you have several months before you need the nursery to be finished, so time is on your side. Many of my larger purchases were on sale over the holidays- especially during Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
  • One exception to waiting:  if ordering anything personalized, be sure to order very early- the unicorn plush rocker took 12 weeks to arrive.
  • As your pregnancy progresses, find what you want online and only go to the store if you have to pick it up - you don't want to be exhausted or uncomfortable while shopping because it can lead to bad decisions, or to not liking anything in the store. :) (Same rule as never getting groceries when you are hungry.)
