    I made the curtains myself, and I LOVE the fabric. I was a little nervous putting the orange and pink pattern on top of my turquoise striped walls, but now I think they make the room. I bought the fabric locally, but here is a link: It’s a new fabric so I don’t think it’s on their site, but you could call them about it.

    I’ve had the dresser forever. It used to belong to my grandparents. I painted it white, designed a bird pattern (got the idea from a wallpaper pattern I saw online), printed it out onto colored paper, cut it out and then used Mod Podge to decoupage to the dresser. It was fairly simple but took a bit of time! I found some great orange knobs shaped like large buttons on the clearance shelf at Anthropologie.

    Thanks for your comments! I actually did the painting. I bought the frame from Ikea, but I couldn’t find anything I liked to put in it (wanted something really bold and graphic) so while my son was napping I got out my paints and did it myself! I had a 3-D ultrasound picture of my daughter (she was been born yet) so I copied her profile for the little girl and then painted my dog with her. I glued some newspaper on parts of the board then painted over it to create a little texture.

    Thanks so much! I will write more as soon as I have time. It was such a fun space to decorate, and it makes me happy whenever I’m in there.

    This is GORGEOUS! My style is more modern but I still love this and felt compelled to post a comment!

    Would you mind sharing the name of the artist or source of the painting of the girl and the dog over the dresser?

    Hi, Stephanie. Just found a link to your nursery and I’m so in love with the dresser you designed. Would you kindly provide a link or a name for the wallpaper company where you got the inspiration for the bird stencil? It’s the perfect touch of whimsy I’d like to add to my daughter’s changing table. I’d like to be able to use the same technique you used. Thanks so much and as the others mentioned and I’d like to reiterate, you are super talented and this nursery is an inspiration. :-)
