Description

I didn't want a real "themy" nursery and wanted something that would be able to grow with our first baby.  I loved the idea of super bright, almost rainbow colors with a neutral base to complement them.  The wealth of resources on Pinterest made it fun to put the room together, and we actually ended up spending half of what we budgeted for.

Design Inspiration

Several different inspirations from Pinterest and Project Nursery, with the main inspiration being the white Jenny Lind crib, simple white dresser that could be used as a changing table, and bright colors.  Once we found the fabric for the changing pad cover and crib skirt, it all seemed to come together.

Decorating Style

Modern, clean, organized, and functional with great colors for visual stimulation!

Favorite Items

The items I made- the crib skirt, crib mobile, drawer liners, changing pad cover and the giant giraffe that was a gift from a family friend! We're thinking of using him with the baby's monthly photos.

Advice

Collect all your ideas in one place, such as Pinterest, so that it's easy to get an idea of the real look or theme you're going for. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't turn out the exact way you planned.  Sometimes organized chaos can create a really unique look.

    Hi! Everything looks great! Can you tell me where you found the drawer inserts for the changing table (little cloth dividers)? Thanks!

    Lindsey, if you mean for the top drawer they are from IKEA. They worked great to organize all my cloth diaper things and i actually have a set for my own dresser drawers to organize undies,
    bras, and socks.
    If you mean the drawer liners- I actually DIY’d them. Here’s the link to my blog post about them. I used wrapping paper sheets from Paper Source and clear Contact paper. Hope this helps! Sorry for the slow response. http://inspireddomesticity.wordpress.com/2013/01/12/baby-ts-drawers-get-a-little-dressing-up/
