We live in a townhouse on a lake. The whole house has floor-to-ceiling windows that feature the beautiful water and forest around us. I wanted to put together a nursery that would keep that calming feel of the outdoors, while still feeling feminine and fresh.
The color scheme of purple, aqua, and yellow was inspired by a woodland animal print by my artist sister-in-law, Bex Glover.

My favorite part of the nursery is the artwork that inspired it -- the woodland animal print over the dresser. I also love the butterfly mobile and the aqua and gray curtains.
I recommend that people look outside of pre-packaged sets of crib bedding and nursery decor. Instead, collect a variety of items that feel more like your own style. I had so much fun putting all the pieces together.
