A Project For

Emma

Age

3 months

Location

Kentucky

Description

I wanted to create a nursery that was feminine and bright, but not too "babyish".  We also wanted to stick to a budget and completed a few DIY projects for the room.  My mom was a huge help and did the sewing for the curtains and crib skirt and helped with the wall stencil!

Design Inspiration

I found the fabric for the room first and used that as my inspiration. I loved the idea of using pink and green in the room and wanted something cheery and bright, as well as girly!  When I saw this fabric, I loved it instantly and knew it was perfect for Emma's room!

Decorating Style

Bright and cheery!  I love mixing old with new.

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the room is the pink and white chevron blanket that my sister made for my daughter--It's just so beautiful and special!  But I also love how the stenciled wall turned out.

Advice

This room was created on a budget.  A lot of the items for this room were either DIY projects or yard sale finds, but we did spend a little extra on the fabric for the curtains and the crib skirt.  Stenciling the wall behind the crib took some time but gave a big impact without spending a lot of money.

    Amazing nursery! I love that you shop at TJMaxx too. I’m a total maxxinista! The soft colors, layered patterns and wall stencil really make the room. Congrats

    love Emma’s room!!! I could move right in :) Do you know who is the designer for your curtain fabric? I’d love to find it local to me.

    I’m pretty much obsessed with all things textiles and if I’m not mistaken, I recognize that curtain fabric as Braemore’s Emperor’s Garden in Blossom and the fun lattice pattern on the crib skirt as Braemore’s Secret Garden in Blossom. Here are links to both:

    P.S. if you like these colors but want something a little more whimsical, I’m also in love with Braemore’s Maneka Cherry Blossom which features some fun animal imagery, also perfect for a nursery I think!

    I love love love this nursery! I’ve been browsing nursery themes for a friend of mine whose due in August. This is my favorite by far! I love that the neutral wall color allows for pops of color in the accents. And I love the eclectic style; perfect blend of classic, modern, mid-century, global chic… funky! Lots of patterns and textures for baby’s developing brain. And of course it’s a bonus that this can be done on a reasonable budget. Kudos!
