- A Project For: Vera
- Age: 2 months
- Location: Omaha, NE
A small but colorful and fun space for my daughter, Vera, to grow into. This room was created on a tight budget, but I love how it turned out. Not a typical little girl's nursery. All sources (including paint colors) and links for this room are listed on my blog: http://designingdawn.com/nursery-sources/
I wanted a room that I would have loved as a little girl. Something very bright and colorful with lots of interesting things to look at. I definitely did not want any pastels or traditional 'baby' colors, but I had fun finding creative ways to use non-baby items in a nursery space.
Thrifty and eclectic. Modern lines with some vintage style.
I am a thrift store junkie and find a lot of items there. I also prefer to collect items from a variety of sources to avoid that 'matched set' feeling.
The chair and frames are thrift store finds. The curtains are from Urban Outfitters, quilt from Francesca's Collections, Posters were made by me, Pendants are custom made by StarlitNestGifts on Etsy, Hand lamp from The Afternoon, Storage cube seating from Target, Dresser is a refinished hand-me-down.
My favorite things in the room are the colorful curtains from Urban Outfitters. They were a jumping off point for the rest of the fabrics in the room. I also love the hand-me-down dresser that I refinished in a beautiful Tiffany blue before we knew she was a girl. I was thinking it could work for either one and it turned out to be the perfect color.
Don't limit yourself to baby stores or baby items. The most interesting things are collected from unexpected sources. And thrift stores are a great place to find items that you won't mind experimenting with if you are a DIY-er like me!
