A Project For

Pearcy Sue Hawkins aka Sparkle

Age

Newborn

Location

Lubbock, Texas

Description

We have tried for years to have a child and when our dream finally came true, we wanted to create a super fun and colorful nursery.   I didn't want a room that was a sea of pastel colors.  I wanted a room that would grow with her.  I also wanted to incorporate lots of different fabrics and as much color as possible.  My ultimate goal was to try to create a room that maybe some day she would be happy to call it her own.

We did not tell anyone her name until she got here.  We all called her Sparkle during the pregnancy.

Design Inspiration

I fell in love with Michael Miller's fabric line called Ooh La La.  I also have a love for Chevron.  Once I found the fabrics, the colors and the rest of the room just seemed to come together.

Decorating Style

I love fun colors.  I think fun colors make you happy, happy, happy!  I also love fun and funky fabrics.  I'm not afraid to mix lots of patterns together.  I also like to find things I really like or have sentimental value and incorporate them into the room.  I also like to repurpose a few things into new spaces.

Favorite Items

Hard to pick.  I love it all and how all the items work together.  I absolutely love the custom wall  painting.  I think that makes the room super fun.  I love the beautiful girly crib that her Grandparents gave her.  I love the window seat my Mother in Law created.  I also love that I was able to incorporate my Grandmother's lamp into her room.  She would be so proud to know that it was in her room.  I love the painting...the bookshelves and custom quilt.  Can you tell that I just love it all?

My most favorite thing is that is room is made with love.  We did projects.  Her Grandparents helped us by making stuff for the room.  Sellers on Etsy created things for her room and they were all more than nice and super excited for this little girl.

Advice

Find things you love and that make you happy.  This is a space that you will spend a lot of time in.  Don't be afraid to mix fabrics and patterns together.  Michael Miller has so many great fabrics that mix and match so well.  Also, search nurseries on project nursery to find inspiration.  Etsy is a great place to get anything custom made.  All the sellers I worked with were more than happy to do custom orders.  They were all awesome.  I highly recommend them all.  Also, find things that can be repurposed into the room. Spray paint is a great friend to have.

Also, be sure to leave room for lots of pictures of your little one.  We left one Turquoise wall open to fill with her pictures.

    Beautiful! Pearcy is one lucky baby girl! Her nursery is so colorful, bright and cheery!
    It looks so well thought out….a perfect place for everything. The crib bedding is gorgeous! I love the fabric that you chose. I see that there is a standard size pillow in the crib in the same fabric. Are you going to use it on her bed when she is out of the crib? Oh…and the wall is fabulous! They did a GREAT job on all the art work in the nursery. LOVE IT!

    Robin, to make that beautiful colorful quilt did you just purchase michael miller’s ooh la la fabric collection and send it to someone on etsy to make you a quilt? Thank you :-)! I am obsessed with this room! You did such a great job!

    Thank you. A lady on etsy named Chez Martine made it. I told her all the fabrics I wanted and she ordered them. Her etsy shop is listed above. She is amazing and so nice to work with. She quilted both sides. One side is a rag quilt and the other is smooth. She also put a custom tag with Pearcy’s name on it. I HIGHLY recommend working with her.
