- A Project For: Zoë
- Age: Born April 19th
- Location: Atlanta, GA
We wanted a nursery that wasn't too girly, but would provide a fun and peaceful place for our little girl to grow up in. With custom prints and bedding, we were able to a put together a room that wasn't locked into one specific theme but went with our creative style.
We started by painting the room a dark grey, and then building on a grey/green color combination as found in the zig zag rug. My husband refinished the vintage dresser from a French country antique white to a changing table and dresser that was bold, colorful and provided a functional centerpiece for the room.

Some of my favorite pieces in the nursery include the artwork for the gallery wall and the custom furniture pieces designed by my husband- from the bookshelves to the re-purposed vintage dresser. Not only did it save us some money, but it's nice to sit in a room that includes such a creative touch from Zoë's dad.
I also love the BlaBla dream rings above the crib. They offer a different look from the traditional mobile, but still provide interest to our baby as she falls asleep in her crib.
Through Project Nursery, Pinterest and Etsy, we were able to find some fun design inspiration for the nursery and create a tailored space that was perfect for little Zoë.
For more modern and unique accessories, we also recommend checking into places that aren't typical baby stores- like Anthropologie, CB2 or West Elm.
