A Project For
A nursery for my little princess, Miss Whitney Grace.
I was a complete novice and had zero experience with nursery decor when I started designing Whitney’s nursery. Thank goodness for Pinterest and fabulous sites like Project Nursery, who provided a ton of design inspiration to draw from.
I knew that I wanted a calm and serene space that blended together modern and classic aesthetics, an environment that my family wouldn't mind spending hours at a time in, and a place that Whitney would be proud to call her own.
My husband and I decided to purchase our “forever home” when we found out we were pregnant. As beautiful and amazing as this home is, there is always room for improvement. We are not the home improvement types who just add a fresh coat of paint and call it done. We updated the flooring, drywall, rewired the electrical and added a ceiling fan – a must with the desert heat! – updated the closet, added new crown molding and baseboards and finally painted with Lilac Haze and French Roast paint from Behr.
I am lucky enough to have a husband who is very crafty. He was able to build me items I loved, but did not want to shell out a ton of money on. He built an Oeuf inspired library, Sprout San Francisco inspired changing table, Pottery Barn inspired wall shelves, and West Elm inspired mirror at a fraction of the cost! His hard work and craftsmanship make these items extra special to me.
Create a Pinterest board and follow Project Nursery! There is more than enough inspiration to get your creative juices flowing to design a dozen nurseries! I can't wait to do it all over again someday.
