In the Nursery with Arin Solange

We have such a special rainbow nursery for you to tour today! You are going to love this bright and airy, whimsical space full of unique touches. Mom Arin designed this nursery for her fourth baby, Goldie, and Arin is super creative as you can easily see on her own website Arin Solange at Home. Her amazing IKEA dresser hack tutorial and DIY yarn wrapped rainbow post are great places to start on her site. You can also follow along with Arin and her family on her instagram account.

Thank you, Arin, for sharing this amazing rainbow nursery with us. We’ll let you take it from here!

Rainbow Nursery with Hanging Rattan Chair and Pink IKEA Hack Dresser

My name is Arin, and over the past seven years of motherhood, I have grown to truly love learning to mesh my world of creativity and decor with motherhood. I find so much joy and passion in sharing projects, inspiration, and tips in keeping your home beautiful while still being a place where your kids can be kids.

Where did you pull inspiration for your nursery design? 
Designing Goldie’s room was a slower process than usual for me. First, I knew I wanted the room to be bright and airy. Then a few of the decor pieces I loved all happened to have a subtle “in the sky” theme, and I just went with it!

What part of the design process did you enjoy the most? 
Goldie’s room was really fun at the end. I slowly added things to try to hit the perfect amount of minimalism yet keep it fun.

What is your favorite part or detail in your nursery?
It’s a bit of a tossup between the hanging chair that I knew I needed as soon as I found out I was pregnant or the wall rainbow, which happened to be the last item I added when I felt the room needed just a little something more.

What is one thing that you would tell other parents to consider when starting their own nursery design project? 
First, remember the key function of the room. Make sure you choose items and accessories wisely that will make the room function well in those long, early days.

Secondly, do what makes you happy. Don’t worry about trends or “what’s in.” The nursery will look totally outdated to your child in twenty years no matter what, so you may as well love the space now!

Hi Kaitlyn,

I got it from a local person who does wood signs - if you want to DM me on Instagram (@arinsolange) I can get you the info.
