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!
This ocean inspired nursery is a combination of splurges, bargains, garage sale finds and a DIY project or two.
As soon as I learned that our twins were both boys, I knew I wanted to create a shark-themed nursery for them. With cheeky artwork and “shark-tooth” chevron patterns, it was easy to convey a theme without being overkill. I’m a minimalist, so naturally I didn’t want an eclectic, whimsical feel. Instead, I chose a very classic design using trendy art, patterns, and furniture.
After we moved into our house just over a year ago, our little Monkey’s room was an after thought. This summer I finally took the time to design a room that is not only more functional, but also a better reflection of his personality.
I wanted to design a room that would be perfect to grow with our baby boy, nothing too babyish but still very fun. I love the neutral, gray color scheme and adding in a pop of color with the accents (that could easily be changed out at a later time). There is still a lot more I want to incorporate into the room (a rug and more DIY decor projects), but with my due date fast approaching this will be an ever-evolving project!
Taylor’s mom decided to surprise her for her 11th birthday with a sophisticated new space featuring her favorite color.
When we started this project, the room was in a very common state – they had already made the big move from crib to big girl bed but most everything else in the room was leftover from nursery days. Her changing table was the first thing to go and we knew we needed to upgrade the lighting, window treatments and seating in the room. Overall her mom wanted a bright, fun room full of colorful accents and with just enough sassiness to satisfy her little girl’s hot pink and mermaid fantasies.
Modern grey and navy nursery that was put together by me!
Creating this room for our sweet baby boy truly was a labor of love! My main goal for the nursery was to create something that was bright and whimsical but not too “babyish”, that way he can grow into it.
A vintage modern travel nursery for my son Ellis. Full of color, pattern, vintage pieces, modern accents, and personal touches. It is a welcoming and fun space where I am reminded of great past adventures and can’t wait for new ones with the little man!
We moved into a new home when Ashlynn was 9 months old, finally at 1 year her room is slowly transitioning from a newborn nursery to a toddler room.
I didn’t set out with any particular “theme” in mind for this room but once I decided to DIY that starry ceiling version of one of my favorite wallpapers, it all came together. From that one point of inspiration a loose celestial theme evolved – light and peaceful with touches of dark wood to warm things up and loads of different textures. You can see my original inspiration board for the room here.
Grey and yellow nursery with bright pink accents. The theme is elephants and incorporated different geometric patterns and a hand painted chevron wall.
Baby Boy Nursery
We took this 1/2 story attic space from 1950s/1960s wood paneling to a modern nursery for our baby boy.
This is a Pinterest nursery if there ever was one! I took several different ideas that I loved and combined them to create a fun, girly circus theme for our new baby girl, Evia. In the last month of my pregnancy, I was nesting like a mad woman! I ended up making or altering the majority of things in the nursery. To be truthful, it’s now my favorite room in the house…I’m wondering why I haven’t put this much work into the rest of the rooms!
A 60-70s themed room. Cozy, colorful, and custom.
I loved changing Mac’s nursery into a big boy room that I call “Farm Chic.” Navy is one of my favorite colors and I added pops of green in the art, pillows and side table. For a touch of manliness I used my husbands pig mount and deer hooves hooks over the bed.
We wanted to create a space that was calming and comfortable for our new baby, something that was appropriate for a little one but could easily grow with her. We wanted to make sure there were a lot of organized storage options because the room lacks a closet. While we wanted the room to be girly, we also wanted to avoid it becoming over-the-top pink. And most importantly for us, we needed to put together a nice space on a budget! IKEA to the rescue!
This project had a strict budget so most of the items were DIY. I did not want her nursery to have a theme, because I am always changing things! The room was small so I tried not to go overboard with a lot of different colors and focused on small details for character. I hope it is a room she grows up to love! :)
