A Project For

Nora Catherine




St. Louis, Missouri


Our daughter Nora's nursery is a classic space using a color palette of navy, coral and light gray for a preppy, girly feel.

Design Inspiration

We were inspired by the architectural detail in many board and batten projects, and wanted to create a visually interesting room using the high contrast white and navy walls.

Decorating Style

We like classic styles, clean lines, and a cozy vibe.

Project Details

Crib & Rug: Pottery Barn (Kids & Teen)

Glider: Ashley Furniture

We DIY'ed most of the room's elements, including making over the vintage dresser (purchased on Craigslist for $40!).  We painstakingly traced, outlined and painted the quote (from Shakespeare), installed the board and batten and the crown molding, built the cloud shelves, and created a mobile out of a kit for the hot air balloons.  Our generous and talented friends and family created the pillow, throw, curtains, crib skirt, and personalized canvas.

Favorite Items

We love the Shakespeare quote, both for its beautiful font and it's lovely sentiment.  We hope to raise our daughter with a knowledge of her own strength and self-worth.


  1. 1

    Love the hot air balloon mobile. I’d prefer them in bright colors though.

    What color are your walls?
