A pink and navy nursery for Eloise


A chic nursery full of textures and patterns for our sweet girl.

Design Inspiration

I love pink and wanted any shade to go well in the room to contrast the strong navy.  I also love all kinds of textures and patterns so I wanted to incorporate that with a geometric wall stencil and fabrics with polka dots and floral motifs.  I found all kinds of things on etsy and at random places I shop.  I got a lot of inspiration from Project Nursery (the Anthropologie wall letter and Ikea book ledges seem to be in everyone's nursery now-a-days!...and rightfully so).  I hadn't seen a pink and navy nursery that I just loved so I pulled a lot of things together to make one that I did.  I made a lot of things in the room including the roman shade and cornice out of a panel from PBK, the tissue balls, and painted the canvases on the wall.  I think it turned out wonderful and my husband and I are really proud of all our hard work.

Decorating Style

I don't think I have a distinct style.  I get an idea in my head and I just run with it.  This time it started with a color scheme and went from there.  I find things everywhere from Goodwill to Pottery Barn Kids and try and make it all mesh together well.

Just put things in that you like and don't be afraid that it won't go together.  You never know until you try!

Is there any way you remember what color paint you used for the dresser? I know it's a long shot, but thought I'd try! :)

The statement wall is stunning, but kinda overwhelming too. It sort of steals the show from the smaller yet lovely details.
