Soft pastel colors, with pops of gold give this nursery a pretty yet modern feel, all while being soothing and calming for the new baby.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration was "pretty pastel". I knew I wanted something very soft and calming, yet modern and chic. I like mixing patterns and didnt want to go overboard with the pinks.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is a mix of vintage and modern. From the vintage rocker and dresser to the modern crib and ceramic elephant head.

Favorite Items

I am so pleased with how everything turned out but I am most pleased with how the dresser turned out. It was beat up and dark, it really came to life with a fresh coat of paint on the wood and hardware. I also love the elephant head and feather mobile as that is where most of my blood sweat and tears poured into, very time consuming projects.


The softer the better. Think pastels. The gold is such a pretty compliment to pastel colors.
