Let’s face it: As a first time mom, it’s difficult enough planning for the arrival of one baby. I could barely maneuver the registry process let alone try to figure out what I would need two of.
Mom Amanda either had some great help or she’s just an excellent multi-tasker. Either way, at the end of the day (or in this case, pregnancy) we are pleased to showcase the perfect pink and green nursery for Amanda’s two darling daughter’s Sophia and Kate.
It was important for Amanda to create a bright and cheery room for not only her twin girls but also for herself since she would be spending most of her time in the nursery during the early months. Once she discovered the oh so charming “Lucy” from the gorgeous baby couture bedding line (and my personal favorite), Serena & Lily, she was inspired to begin her nursery project.
The crib bedding, wall art and changing pad cover were all purchased from the lovely online women and children’s boutique, Layla Grayce. Target’s “Simply Shabby Chic” bed linens beautifully compliment her designer crib duds.
To customize your baby’s nursery, you don’t have to be an artist and paint a mural. The devil is in the detail. One of my favorite details in the twins room are the drawer pulls on the baby changing table/dresser. It only took Amanda a few minutes to spray paint the handles a bold pink to tie into the room’s pink accents. A simple DIY detail that makes all the difference.
Soft green walls are wonderful and neutral but finding the right green isn’t always easy. I recently learned this lesson while helping my friend choose a green for her little girl’s room. Next time I’ll take a cue from the twins room and suggest Behr’s Disney Paint Collection sold at Home Depot: Christopher Robin’s Swing, dc4a-30-2.
The rockers for mommy and babies are not only practical but give off that shabby chic vibe. The playful pink seating area for the twins gets plenty of use during story time. Besides, every room needs a personalized soft seat for their little one from Pottery Barn Kids (which makes a great baby gift).
And finally, a reminder that accessories do matter. Hanging sweet tutu’s, displaying customized plates, cuddly friends and pink piggy banks complete the room, making it perfect in every way!

Just bought the Lucy set for my baby girl, who is scheduled to arrive in 3 months. Love the rug in your girls' room. Where did you find it?

This is the sweetest idea for twin girls! I love the simplicity along with the details...and the fact that there's also a full size bed.

I love this room! Coordination without looking too matchy matchy. The twins are very lucky to have a mom with such an eye.
