Wildflower Nursery

The Hunter green crib was my main inspiration for this nursery. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it! I still wanted the room to feel feminine. Next,  I looked for a wallpaper to complement the crib and was able to customize my color palette for the peel and stick wallpaper (timberlea interiors wallpaper). Once the wallpaper arrived, I then picked out paint samples for the wall to match with some of the colors in the florals.
My husband and I both love restoring furniture, so we found our dresser at the Goodwill and a rocking chair at a yard sale. My initial plan was to sand and stain for natural wood look, but after staining three different times I hated every color and decided to go with white. The rattan inserts that I added and the leather pulls really complemented the wood accents on the crib. My vision for this room was neutral/BoHo/feminine floral. I tend to dream of these things in my head and then just start looking for pieces and accessories that complement as I’m decorating and pulling things together.
I am loving the combination of the deep green, lavender and shades of white.

Bria Emily’s Nursery

Bria is our first child and I was so excited to set up her nursery!! I wanted it to feel classic and timeless and a little feminine with neutral colors and a pop of one color.

Quinn’s Garden Nursery

Our garden inspired us! The room we chose for our baby girl’s nursery faces our back yard and our raised beds. The room also gets beautiful sunshine in the morning, making it a very peaceful space – just like our garden. I wanted to pull in floral/botanical accents, which is why we chose an accent floral wall paper with greens, yellow, and blush/peach colors. The rest of the room is finished in a green grass cloth wallpaper to add texture and to ground the room. I selected gold accents for framed prints and our window treatment to warm up the room and give it a sophisticated feel. We also incorporated woven textured accents around the room to warm it up, such as baskets to hide toys, diapers, and burb cloths. I wanted the nursery to feel personal and the details to feel special, so it was important to me that we collected the items on the shelves over time instead of just one big shopping haul at Target. I found some beautiful wooden toys including one personalized in her name, the books and stuffed animals were gifts or handed down from family, and I purchased the sun hat and wicker doll purse for when she is a bit older. We included some framed photos of a maternity session we did at the beach a few weeks ago.

Modern Green Nursery

We wanted a fun feature wall in our baby girl’s nursery. My husband and I designed the wood pattern and used online videos to learn how to cut and mount the wood (way more time consuming than Pinterest led us to believe, but worth it). We wanted a girly room that wasn’t all pink and we love how it turned out!

Mermaid Cove

I was inspired by Lily Pulitzer’s mermaid cove print while creating a nursery for baby girl #2! I love the bright splashes of blues and pinks and even the touch of lime green. This room theme will be perfect when transitioning to toddler/preschools years.

Neutral Ombré Rainbow Nursery

A Pinterest picture inspired me for my nursery. I started with the ombré rainbows, and from there I added little by little. It turned out as perfect as I imagined.

Proud to be Y-Orchid

Loved putting our little girls nursery together! Orchid Purple paint by Behr with black and white stripes make her room able to grow with her. This nursery will easily convert to her big girl room as she gets older with Lavender damask linens, Lavender purple comforter and black and white striped lamp and storage accents. We found an old telephone table at a yard sale and painted it the same Orchid Purple and the black and white marble book shelf was a steal at Home Goods. Her nursery set was found at Nebraska Furniture Mart and the glider is from BuyBuy Baby. Special touches also include a handmade mobile, curtains and name sign as well as a Lemonlee Doll and her sisters painted heartbeat. All this has me saying “I’m proud to be y-orchid, Enslie!”

Boho Meets Chic Nursery

I wanted to create a nursery where you felt a calming sense of peace when you entered. A room to raise our daughter in that was simple, yet had special details throughout. I wanted to focus on whites and neutrals with pops of color throughout the room! The best part of this nursery is that I put together the details and vision that I had, while my husband built everything to make my dream come to life! This was the perfect project to do together before the arrival of our first baby! Memories that will last a lifetime. Lastly, every book on her shelves were from a family member or a friend. Instead of bringing cards to our baby shower, they brought their favorite books from growing up with a sweet message addressed to our daughter as she grows and learns to read!

Dreamy Swan Nursery

Some may see a concrete wall as a design limitation, but that was quite the opposite for me when designing this sweet nursery! I was instantly drawn to the raw finish and knew it needed something plush, light and textural to soften the space — the Fiona Walker England swan felt head did just the trick! We introduced other various textural elements, like a scalloped wool rug layered with a plush sheepskin, black-out curtain panels, a distressed velvet ottoman and a large woven basket. We also brought in some beautiful and dainty flower decals to add to the rooms’ peachy-pink colour story. Since the nursery didn’t have a wired ceiling light, we needed to incorporate multiple sources of lighting so opted for a gorgeous brass floor lamp and decorative table lamp, perfect for late night feeds and cuddles. This peachy nursery is just the sweetest… complete with a touch of timeless elegance and grace.

Emily’s Nursery

I am so so excited to share my sweet baby’s nursery with you guys! Fun fact – I knew I wanted this color blue (Upward by Sherwin Williams) in this nursery before I even knew the gender of my baby. So I was going to make it happen either way. I really wanted picture frame molding also but worried that it would be too feminine for a little boy. So let’s just say I’m super happy that we are having another little girl! And I love this blue mixed with the pale pops of pink! It’s exactly what I wanted and I’m so in love with every single detail.
I’ve worked with Mod Wood Co on several projects in the past for clients so when it was time for a project of my own, I knew I HAD to work with them again. I sent an inspiration image of what I was sorta thinking for over the crib and she knocked this custom name sign out and had it at my front door within days! I seriously can’t say enough about their company. They are the best! I’m so in love with the freestanding cut out of her name above the crib. And for the wreath, I simply just attached lambs ear garland around a macrame embroidery hoop.
I’m a firm believer in not skimping on your closets. They should be just as much a part of the room as anything else. And it’s another opportunity to have fun with design. This closet was certainly no different. I used this gorgeous floral wallpaper from Livette’s Wallpaper and it was everything I wanted and more! Their peel and stick wallpaper is super easy to use and they can customize the color to whatever you need. They’ll even match colors from brands like Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore. I went with a simple navy here just to make it pop against the lighter blue walls. I LOVE it!
I’m kind of shocked by the amount of people that are so interested in our mini door. Honestly, I wanted to kind of make it disappear so that’s where the idea of picture frame molding came from. I felt it would stick out too much if we were to keep the door white. So painting the trim, doors, and walls all the same color helped it blend in and not stick out. But soooo many people want to know all about this “magical door”. I wish I had a more exciting story but it’s just the entrance to our attic. And don’t worry, we put a lock on it so you can’t get in without a key. AND I made sure to have my husband put the deadbolt lock on the inside just in case little girls try to lock each other inside down the road one day 🙂
This nursery is so special to us and we can’t wait to meet our baby girl very soon! We hope you enjoyed this room tour!

Little Ladies Twin Nursery

Let me start by saying that twins came as a major surprise to us! We knew right away that they were identical, so we would have either two boys, or two girls. I was certain we were having boys & I was thrilled to create a rugged airplane or outer space themed nursery for them to destroy! BUT… when we found out we were having girls, the pressure to create the perfect space was on – ohhh the possibilities. I wanted my girls to have a space that’s girly and chic, yet tranquil, comfy and playful. To me, the nursery isn’t a space for only sleeping, feeding, and changing, but a sacred space where we will build late night & early morning memories…rocking, reading, playing, learning, and loving. We converted our home office into their nursery, which happens to be the smallest room in our house, but even with two cribs we managed to fit all of the necessities & simple comforts and then some. In order for me to calm my obsessive thoughts and tame my over-the-top ideas, I needed to focus on a color scheme & choose one element to build the room around. Up first, the color palette: off white, blush pink, lavender, gold, and gray. Check! For furniture/accents, I decided to start with the area rug as it would sit at the center of the room & be the main source of color (something I am afraid of); after hours and hours of online searching, I found the perfect soft, low pile rug with a chic color palette and a fun boho pattern. For optimal comfort, I layered a couple faux sheepskin rugs in spots where we’ll spend most of our time (hello, ROSS finds). Up next, lighting: we removed the ceiling fan and replaced it with a capiz shell floral light fixture that beautifully projects a warm kaleidoscope-esque pattern on the ceiling when illuminated. A comfy over-sized rocker & a blush pink frou-frou foot stool sit in the corner of the room with a reading nook above; clear acrylic shelves house the girls lil’ library. For functionality, I added a gold globe style floor lamp that hangs over the rocker for the perfect late night feeding/diaper change lighting. Sticking with brushed gold metals, I selected the cribs, and a small accent table with a marble top. An antique french inspired dresser from Pottery Barn Kids is stationed beneath the window & outfitted with the basic diapering necessities (a Bumbo changing pad, wipe dispenser, basket with diapers/creams/lotions, and fresh flowers – let’s see how long that lasts!). I have commitment issues when it comes to color & wall art, so I left the walls stark white & chose fairly simple and minimal wall art – at least for now. For personalization (and to keep track of who’s who), I covered 20″ wooden laser cut names with green moss, attached them to pre-made wooden frames & hung them from a satin off white ribbon with an added bow for that special girly touch. Clustered lavender rooster feathers in acrylic box frames, which are meant to resemble African Juju Hats, are also hung on the wall above their cribs (a great tjmaxx.com find!). To add texture & to brighten the space and reflect natural light, I added a round rustic beaded wood mirror on the back wall. I finished the space off with a few playful, adorable and meaningful decorative accents, including: a rattan unicorn laundry basket, moss covered unicorn figurine, stacking wooden rainbow, wicker unicorn basket filled with board books, a fun wooden musical llama toy, and last but not least…the most special accent of all, the babies’ very first picture – a single 5 day old embryo, displayed in a gold frame sitting atop their dresser. Created from a place of gratitude and love, this space could not be more special to us. We look forward to seeing the wonder in our daughters eyes as they grow & explore the elements around them.
My best advice for designing your nursery: Don’t be afraid to mix metals & textures (yes, gold and silver go well together), keep decor minimal (don’t over-do-it with the tchotchke’s), and break tradition (crib skirts are not a necessity).

Sweet Pale Pink and Neutral Nursery

I wanted Ava’s room to be simple, sweet, and light. I decided to do a neutral room with pale blush and brass accents. I find myself just sitting and trying to imagine her here!

Classic Baby Girl Nursery

I am not a major pink fan, so my goal was to create a classy, sweet feminine nursery without it! I used a neutral white, ivory, and gray palette with a priority for texture. I love the added wood elements and how it brings the entire design together. This is definitely my favorite room in our home! Love it so much. <3

Kingsley’s XO Nursery

This room was such a blast to design. With welcoming our second baby girl, so soon after our first (22 months later), I was worried that I’d be a one-trick pony and just replicate our first daughter’s nursery, which I love so very much! But, I was determined to give sweet Kingsley a room all her own and equally determined to step outside of my design comfort zone.
I had my eye on the Love Wallpaper by Sissy + Marley for Jill Malek since we first brought it into The Project Nursery Shop. With that as my base and Pottery Barn Kids onboard to partner together, I was giddy and nervous to start adding tons of texture and patterns! From the Hazel Rug to the large X O prints and neon sign on top of the wallpaper, I was all in to be funky and original.
At times, I almost retreated back to the comfort of solid colors and bare walls, but my Project Nursery colleagues encouraged me to go for it. Throw in a fiddle leaf tree, a letterboard with song lyrics and some pink Converse, and it’s a room I know I’ll love for years to come.
Catch up on all the fun from moving while 8 months pregnant to bringing this room to life with the whole fam.

Gender Neutral Eclectic Nursery

My husband and I waited five year before finally successfully conceiving. With a little help from science and lots of patience we were expecting our first child. It was so surreal at the time to be decorating a nursery. I felt the room had to be very personal and somewhat reflect our life style that would soon be welcoming this tiny human into our family.

Scarlett’s Pink, Aqua, Grey and White Nursery

We didn’t really go with a theme, just stuck to a color scheme of light pink, aqua, grey and white. I enjoyed hand picking each item that went into the nursery, and hope my little girl likes the room half as much as I do already!

Baby L’s Pink and Gray Nursery

We wanted a calm, soft space with some old and new elements mixed in. The room features some vintage blankets, hints of metallics, retro starburst mirrors, and lots of fluffy white and sheepskin!

Isla’s Coral and Aqua Nursery

We wanted to create a vibrant room that can grow with Isla. We selected fabrics from Carousel Designs and paired them with white furniture pieces and an ivory glider and textured rug.
