A custom bright girly teal, pink, and yellow nursery with modern and vintage accents.
I wanted something fun and girly with modern and vintage accents without a real "theme" I wanted items that could transition from baby to toddler and one day pre-teen and teen. I wanted spend as little as possible without looking cheap and buy items that would last a long time! I was inspired by colors of spring and summer aqua water, pink flowers, and yummy yellow golden summer light.
I love things that are unique, bright, and start conversations. I like to mix the old with the new or buy new that looks old! Most of what I buy is on a budget with a few pricey items mixed in to add luxury!
The swing shelves were an idea in my head for a long time and I adore the way they played out! They cost about $50 for the two and were up in about 10 minutes! I toyed with the idea of using an actual branch to hang them from but decided to add the flower branches instead!
I fell in love with the jewelry cabinet and knew it would be the perfect place to store pacifiers and she could use it in the future for jewelry!
I love the pepsi crate to store bottles of lotion, ointments, and burp cloths!

I originally wanted to wallpaper the ceiling with a fun print but I knew that was going to be hard to do and costly and hard to undo in the future so I thought Vinyl was the perfect middle ground. They are easy to take off and I could control the amount I wanted!
I painted the used Jenny Lind crib bright yellow before I knew the sex of the baby! The bedding was made off etsy and the pillows were handmade by a friend.
Go with your gut and think outside the box! See something you like? Put your own spin on it! Take inspiration from everywhere! Outside, catalogs like anthropologie and Ruche, and people in your lives! Take your time! Look for items to add from everywhere! Flea markets, yard sales, boutique stores, and stuff from around your house that can be uplifted!
