Vintage, pretty, eclectic, and bohemian. That sums up this sweet little girl’s nursery. After having 2 boys, I was pretty excited to find out we were having a girl, and I was especially excited to decorate the nursery. This bedroom is a labor of love. We did everything ourselves, including painting, making some DIY wall decor & quilts, and hitting the thrift shops and discount stores. Found lots of great inspiration online and at local small shops and thrift stores.
I wanted a nursery that my daughter could grow up in, not one that would always resemble a baby. She won’t be little for long so I designed a nursery that she could grow up in or at least last until she was ready to design her room. I also wanted something that was vintage looking with a modern flare to it.
My husband and I didn’t want anything “too pink”, so we focused on primary colors and owls which seem to be 2014’s trendy animal.
We did a lot of DIY projects. Dad painted the changing table, which was a children’s desk we found at a thrift shop, and the bookcase and night stand which came from other rooms in our house. The glider was passed down and the dresser and trunk were already in the house, too. The crib was the only piece of furniture we had to buy.
I sewed the curtains and crib skirt and created the letters for the alphabet/initial wall.
This is a nursery I put together for my new baby. When I was about 5 months pregnant I started making things and collecting interesting art and toys.
Decorating my first baby’s room was so exciting! I wanted to create a space that could grow with my child. Something that would not have to be changed when she got older. I began with a pink and white as the base colors for the room. After that, I chose furnishings that would work in a small space, items that provided good storage and would stand the test of time. We wanted a room that would feel truly special to her. I hope she enjoys growing up in it! Sources and more pictures on my and my baby’s blog:
Sweet peach….it’s a girly room with soft gray walls, white linen, and peach accents. It was a DIY project and a labor of love for the entire family…my husband and I hand painted all the furniture (except crib), and I handmade the chandelier and mobile. My 13 year old daughter and I made the photo frames and other accessories.
For me, the nursery planning started the moment when I found out this little bean, my third after having two boys, was a girl! I had ooo’d and aww’d over many a baby girl nursery before but never thought i’d be decorating one of my own one day. In my mind, I was always destined to have 3 boys!
I knew right off the bat I wanted purple and turquoise, and I new I wanted chevron and polka dots… so I headed straight to Etsy for inspiration. Most people head to pinterest, I know I know, I’m just an Etsy girl.
I thought starting with the perfect bedding would be a good place to start and after endlessly searching I could not find a set that had everything I was looking for to save my life. Hmph. So I had to switch gears, I had to think outside of the box.. I went to a fabric site instead. After a lot of trial and error I finally came up with an inspiration board of fabrics that I knew I would love…. and the rest fell into place with the help of some seriously knock-your-socks-off vendors, a few fun DIY projects, and a lot of love <3
We knew that we wanted to have a classic nursery that would fit for a boy and a girl, but we also wanted it to be a welcoming, bright, loving room. We started with our budget and worked to find or make each item so that it would fit within our budget. We love this room because it has the perfect combination of DIY touches and other classic accessories.
I’ve been waiting for an excuse to use the fabric from Kate Spade’s Candy Stripe shower curtain, but nothing felt quite right in our home until I found out I was expecting a daughter. It was important that the tiny room felt airy, clean, and feminine but not too flouncy – she has two older brothers to keep up with so a fun edge was a must!
This nursery for Asha was designed before she was born but still is a work in progress. I need to put her name, initials and some pictures in the room. I love the color combination of grey, white and pink. I think this nursery is fantastic!
I spent a lot of time imagining the perfect space for my little baby girl. I wanted something soothing but colorful and fun. I knew I’d be spending a lot of time in the nursery in the coming months! While I was pregnant I did everything from the painting to woodworking projects with my dad to make the space special. It turned out just how I imagined and I love playing with baby Annabelle in the room every morning!
Olivia, my daughter, was the head designer and decorator with a little bit of advice from me. I really wanted her to feel like it’s her personal room.
For Charlotte’s first birthday, I created a butterfly garden party in pinks, white and ivory with butterflies, burlap, mason jars, tissue pom poms, and other vintage touches.
Initially designed as a gender neutral nursery with added “pink” and custom elements after my daughter Mia was born. Mia’s nursery is a mix match of bright colors on a neutral background of grey. It has a combination of modern elements, DIY projects, and cheap/cool finds.
Small room thats fun, bright and not cluttered. Still shopping for a nice mirror above the dresser. The wall color is antique silver and I incorporated yellow, white, gold, blue and pink.
I started collecting ideas for a travel-themed nursery well before I found out that I was pregnant. My husband and I both love to travel and can’t wait to share our adventures with our children someday. We had a great time selecting the items for the room and putting everything together. Hopefully, this room will inspire our little girl to go out and see the world!
I worked with an existing wall color and started with the main colors of bright blue, magenta and yellow. I wanted the “theme” to be cheerfulness captured through patterns. For the most part the it was a DIY project.
Nia’s First Birthday!!
Our baby girl’s nursery is fun without the traditional baby room themes.
I wanted to create a peaceful and calm space with shabby vintage touches where baby and I could relax.
