Project Details

The crib: was a white Jenny Lind Crib I used for my son (bought on Amazon) I repainted it pink to match this nursery's pink accents.

Crib bedding: Crib bumper & skirt are Serena & Lily Nursery Basics 'Sprout'. The floral sheet is by Caden Lane.

The chair: Pottery Barn Dream Rocker + ottoman (bought on Craigslist and I had a slipcover made by Noni at DIY Slipcovers on etsy to coordinate with the room. Floral throw pillow by Caden Lane.

Alcove twin bedding: White shabby chic sheets from target. A simple down comforter from the Pottery Barn Outlet near me and a Ralph Lauren quilt (that I already had) from Bloomingdales. The coral pink pillows are from Home Goods. Sheepskin pillow is from Target and bolster was made by Noni at DIY Slipcovers; the same etsy shop that made the chair slipcover.

Crystal bookshelf lamp: I was looking all over the internet for cute white kids lamps. Pottery Barn (both kids & teens) has some nice looking ones. Inexpensive too... nope. I just couldn't pull the trigger on paying $150-$300 (matching desk+ floor lamp). I could hear my husbands heart breaking whenever I'd bring up Pottery Barn.  I ended up going into Home Goods and getting this solid crystal lamp for around $50. Not super inexpensive but I love the lamp and it will definitely have much more decor longevity than any of the pottery barn kiddo ones I was looking at.

The white floor lamp:  You can find at Lowe's 

The paint: Sherwin Williams Harmony no VOC paint (I really could barely smell it at all).

Blue walls: 'Swimming'

Pink closet doors +crib: 'Oleander'

The rugs: two sheepskin rugs from Costco.

The short white bookcase: Pier 1 (a long time ago). Though they always seem to have similar little bookcases.

Art: The two paintings were purchased at a local antique store. I also had a maternity photo of me printed. I felt a little funny adding a large photo of myself to the room. My mom encouraged me to have the print done, reminding me that it isn't just a photo of me. It's a photo of "the two of you." and something that my daughter will surely cherish. Especially as she gets older. "plus babies love to see their mamas." Cant argue with that. <3

The floral mobile: I made. I just went to the craft store, got two small wooden wreaths, flowers, greenery & ribbon. I used my glue gun and some heavy duty fishing line and (with many toddler interruptions) it was done in a couple hours. :)

Window treatments: I bought a coordinating silk fabric that I liked at Mary Jo's Cloth Store. Along with blackout lining. I had Doris at DP Devine Creations here in Greenville make the pinch pleat drapes and the pretty London shades. She did a beautiful job. They're both functional and pretty. I love how they turned out.

    This is a beautiful nursery that you have created for your little baby girl! I love pink and blue together. I did my little girls room in pink and blue which will be changed soon since she is almost 9 years old. It is so serene and makes you smile when you look at it! Love it!!!

    Thank you so much, Jan! I love being in the room. You’re so right about the colors being serene. I feel very calm in there. Do you and your daughter have a theme or colors picked for her new room?

    LOVE LOVE LOVE! Especially the bedding – such a lovely twist on the popular coral and aqua combination!

    Phoenix….I would like an aqua or light coral for her walls. They are light pink stripe now and I love the pink. She may change her mind though. Her friend just had her room redone and it is lavender….so she may want lavender.

    Sounds lovely! I debated going with a coral on the nursery walls. We had a room in our old house that was coral. It was very cheery but I always felt kind of energized in the room… I guess in accordance with color psychology. :) I decided on the aqua blue since in was more calming. I figure better for sleep. I love lavender, too. I’m already thinking of newborn portraits and I keep going back to lavender and purples for props. Have fun with your design project! Let me know if you post photos. I’d love to see! :)
