Maya’s Pretty Retreat

I had to keep in mind that we would be moving in less than a year. So, I had to keep the walls neutral and the budget low. But, I still wanted to enjoy the space.

Chevron Bird Nursery

I wanted a vintage look with a modern flair to it, and I wanted to do it within a certain budget.  I love vintage furniture and like to repurpose it to make it look totally different. All the furniture in the room was repurposed, except for the chair. None of the accessories at retail price and was at least 20% off, but most was at least 40% off.

Pink Christmas Party

Given the timing of the baptism right before the holidays, it didn’t make sense not to work in a Christmas theme, so taking the inspiration from the Nutcracker, we opted  for shades of pink and silver instead of more traditional reds and greens which gave our winter wonderland a more girly, whimsical feel!

Gweneth’s Shabby Chic Safari Nursery

This nursery was designed in collaboration with my then pregnant client and my now close friend.  She wanted to do something girly but in the blue family.  I think we definitely achieved that.

Lavender Gloss

We wanted a fresh take on a traditional nursery. We liked the idea of the lavender color scheme and the traditional  vertical stripes.

Harleigh Brooke’s Bowtique

As a mother of two boys, you can only imagine how excited I was to finally get to buy pink for someone other than myself. I have always dreamed of pageants, playing dress up, pigtails and hair bows.  So I knew her nursery was going to be my main focus while I was pregnant. I spent almost 6 months on her room, and I love every aspect of it. I like to think of myself as a DIYer and I think I am creative. I love putting my own spin on things, and I LOVE Pinterest. So there are many Pinterest inspired things in her room.

Elegant Ballerina Room Any Girl Would Want!

This room was custom designed by Cheryl McConnell of Sweet Lullaby in Wyckoff, NJ.  Bedding and window treatments flow with beautiful ruffles, sparkling beads and luxerious bows!! The furniture was custom ordered and the muralist just sealed the deal with stunning silhouettes of ballerinas.
Murals were painted by Murals and more by Patrice.  Bejeweled with Swarvoski crystals, pearls and rhinestones.
 
Our sweet little customer wanted a ballerina room done with elegance that she can grow with!

Purple and White Nursery

I have a small space which was a bit of a challenge. I wanted a nursery that was soft and elegant. I wanted it to say “girl”, but I didn’t want to use pink. Purple was the perfect option for me. I fell in love with the dress form print and connected that theme with the Barbie wall. I also wanted to make sure that the room has a personal touch. The gallery wall will be perfect once we add photos of our little bundle of joy! I must say that my hubby did a wonderful job of painting and helping to bring my vision to life!

Kenley’s Nursery

As soon as I found out I was having a girl, I knew that I wanted a modern beachy nursery with bright colors. Lots of love and DIY projects went into this room!

Emmerie’s room

I knew I wanted my little girl to have a purple and green room, and I didn’t want anything to “themey”. I had so many ideas in my head it was so hard to control myself. I love DIY stuff and I wanted to try and making so much as I could on my own.

A Simply, Lovely Baby Shower

First baby, first grandchild, first niece… this little one was already spoiled in the womb.  My amazing sister Evonne knew right away she wanted to plan my baby shower and after months of her dealing with my craziness the day finally arrived.  I wanted it to be light, airy and pink!  I usually shy away from too much pink but in this case it was just perfect.  We took the design inspiration from the invitations, Pinterest & Etsy and threw in some DIY projects, which made it so personal and beautiful!

Peaches and Creme Nursery, Made with Love

I had many different ideas and possible themes for our baby’s nursery (just check out my Pinterest Boards and you will see for yourself!)  I DID know that I wanted to use peach and coral colours for a girl’s room though, so once we found out we were having a baby girl that is where we started.  From there I got a few inspirational pieces (such as the image of the little girl eating the peach and the pair of little ceramic baby shoes) and I collected items that we already had from my childhood and from around our house (such as the quilt, the cradle, the ballerina music box, my knit and stuffed animals friends etc.) and her room started taking shape. Once I started my various handmade and DIY projects  her peaches and creme, feminine antique nursery with birdy accents really started coming to life.  Most of the projects in this nursery are handmade DIY projects and lots of the furniture we got for free, or on Kijiji, and re-vamped them to freshen them up and make them fit with the nursery.  This was definitely a nursery on a budget, the retail value of the larger items in the room would have come to around $1600 but we only spent $200 on all of those items!! So hopefully this nursery is inspiring and an example that you can create a really cute nursery on a budget!

Mac’s Nursery

I wanted to create a soft, elegant room for my daughter. I knew I was going to be on a tight budget because I was going to be quitting my job to stay at home with her after she was born. Most of the items were hand-me-downs and thrift store items I refinished to make my own.

Sip and See for Avalon

A Sip & See, an Aus­tralian tra­di­tion, is a type of baby shower where par­ents invite friends and fam­ily over to ‘see’ the new­born while ‘sip­ping’ on a drink, gen­er­ally Cham­pagne, tea, cof­fee, or punch. Leave it to the Aus­tralians to turn a baby shower into a rea­son to drink! A Sip & See is per­fect for cou­ples on their 2nd or 3rd child who either didn’t have a baby shower, or want a way to intro­duce all the fam­ily to the new baby at once. As the proud mommy of a brand new baby girl I wanted to do some­thing spe­cial to wel­come her into the world. Being that this is my 3rd child, I did not have a baby shower for her. Being that I am a small busi­ness owner, I do not get paid on mater­nity leave, so the hus­band gave me a teeny tiny bud­get to work with, so I became very DIY.
