A Patterned Nursery


Once I found out I was pregnant, the nursery planning quickly began. When I found out I was having a girl, the bigger debate happened – to go pink or not to go pink. I decided to go bright with lemon and lime.

Design Inspiration

An argyle sock. Yep, inspiration can happen anywhere.

Decorating Style

This room is definitely playful modern.

Project Details

- Argyle wall directionsCrib is from Wal-Mart (I painted the base green) - Glider and ottoman are from BuyBuy Baby - Lamp base and shade are from Target - Houndstooth quilt pattern - Expedit shelf is from Ikea - Westie art is by Anne Leuck Feldhaus - Wire baskets are from Amazon - The curtains were made, but the fabric is Waverly Scribble Meadow - From Craigslist: the dresser, the pedestal table

Favorite Items

The argyle wall is my favorite part of the room


Don't be afraid to mix patterns – just make sure to have patterns in various sizes. Also, find a color palette and stick with it.

Love the room! I will be getting the same crib and one of the reviews on WalMart which showed a yellow painted base convinced me. I want to paint mine too. Can you maybe share how you painted it? (any sanding? varnishing, which paint?) Thank you super much in advance!

love love love!!!!! I'm having a boy...his walls are light blue and I am decorating in navy, green, white and light blue. But I saw this wall and thought it would look great in his room....I so want to do this for the wall where his crib will be. Any tips for creating this wall? Great job on the room and I love that you did such an original color scheme for your baby girl! Beautiful job!
