Oooh, this nursery has us dreaming of dark hues! Whoever said navy was just for boys was just WRONG. And sweet baby Jocelyn’s nursery proves just that! This super feminine nursery is as sweet as it is stylish, and we can’t stop obsessing over the most beautiful paper flowers we’ve ever seen.
Dark floral fabrics have been trending all year, and we were so excited to use our brand new navy and coral crib bedding as the color palette for this gorgeous nursery design.
Design tip: When using a dark color on the wall, try not to go overboard with it. In this case, the contrasting walls stayed a crisp white, which prevents the room from feeling like a cave. It’s a nice contrast with the dark accent wall.
I love the use of texture in the room. The jute rug adds an earthy tone that doesn’t compete with all the colors in the bedding and curtains, and it acts as a nice base for the colorful side table and ottoman.
The matte gold monogram over the dresser is a perfect statement piece that can grow with the little girl, and its subtle color even coordinates with the jute rug.
We heart macrame! And this wall hanging helps add a boho style to the wall decor. We mixed it with some of our favorite wall art and sayings. And that Llama head—I mean really—I think I need that.
The paper flowers were made to match the colors in Jocelyn’s Navy and Coral Crib Bedding perfectly! I love how the movement from the corner of the room seems to frame the crib that she chose to angle in the room.
Design Tip: Don’t be afraid to move the furniture around! The main focal wall doesn’t always have to have the crib on it. It should be the first thing you see when you walk in the room and be the inspiration for the rest of the design pieces. Think of it as a starting point when putting together your baby’s room!
The furniture used in the nursery is actually all hand-me-downs from her big sister! This is a great example of how keeping some of the pieces neutral allows you to get extra use out of them. The white adds a great contrast against the dark walls and could have easily worked with any color story, style or even for a baby boy!
We have several more fun projects in the works, and I can’t wait to share them with you! It’s springtime, baby, and there’s no question that the floral nursery trend is in full bloom!
