Description

A crisp, clean nursery with new and old touches.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration began with the wallpaper on the ceiling. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. I knew I wanted to use in no matter what the sex of the babies. I went with the light gray and yellow color and added in soft pink for the girly touch.

Decorating Style

I love mixing old with new...antique pieces with new furniture. I didn't want a nursery that was too "baby" or too "adult."

Project Details

After the wallpaper was picked out, we started with the antique cedar chest. It belonged to my husband's great grandmother. We had it restored and painted antique white. We found the dresser, from the same era as the chest, on Craigslist and painted it to match. We added Anthropologie knobs to it. We have a shelf that holds pieces from family....my favorite is framed white gloves that belonged to my mother as a little girl. The bedding was custom made. I picked out very soft and suttle fabrics but with a lot of texture...silk sheets and embroided linen bedskirt.

Favorite Items

Besides the wallpaper, I love the animal pictures hanging on the wall. They were pages in a children's book that was given to my husband's great grandfather from his grandparents in England. We had them customed framed to match the nursery. My girls love to look at them while getting their diapers changed!

Advice

Before buying anything knew, check Craigslist and Etsy for great finds! Also, look at old pieces you already have or your family has. They definitely add character to a room. It's great to have antique pieces that have been apart of your family.

    I think your room is 5 stars, and I love that ceiling.  I once painted birds on a ceiling in a client’s kid’s playroom.  It is such a sophisticated designer look.  I also share your philosophy about checking for deals on CL and repurposing old with the new.

    Such a sweet nursery. I really really love the chandelier and its semi-ornate details. And I love the fact that you have an antique cedar chest — from daddy’s great grandmother! — and a pair of gloves from your mom. I could only wish I had heirloom pieces like that.

    Beautiful!  I love the crib bedding that you chose for the girls cribs.  Are the bumpers and crib skirt from Bella Notte?  So soft and serene!  I also really like the pictures that you framed above the dresser!  Have fun with the girls and lots of tea party’s.  Oh by the way….I am a tripplet so I know you have your hands full.  My mom did.  My sister is just 15 months older than we are…so she had four babies in diapers at one time. LOL

    Melissa,

    Thank you! The chandelier came from Pottery Barn Kids. I just loved that it had the birds on it to match the ceiling.
