Alice’s Wonderland


I wanted to design a nursery that would be a peaceful place for me to spend hours with our little girl--a space that was not too girly and pink and frou frou, but a more sophisticated room for a baby.  There's definitely no mistaking that this room is a nursery, but hopefully one that will grow throughout the next few years with her.

Design Inspiration

I mostly went on pinterest and various nurseries here on project nursery to see what I liked, and then went from there!  I knew I wanted lots of white and mirrored furniture and accents, so based the rest of the room around the white furniture and muted gray rug.

Decorating Style

For this room, I would say sophisticated, and fairly modern with some touches of antique (like the chandelier).  

Project Details

The dog print over the changing table is from

Most of the furniture is from Pottery Barn Kids, with the exception of the mirrored side table, which is from High Fashion Home.

The bear shaped lamp on the dresser is from ZooLights.

The poms and alphabet wall were handmade by me and my husband (with the exception of the A and, and the R -- Land of Nod).  We purchased the wooden letters and supplies from Hobby Lobby and tried to shoot for a mix of fun colors and fabrics that went with the room!

The pillows and crib skirt were handmade by my mother using fabrics from Michael Miller (Zoology, Play Stripe, and Gray Dot).

The chandelier was found on ebay.

The Alice in Wonderland print is from TinaTarnoff on etsy.

The elephant hook is from Anthropologie.

The little sheepskin rug is from Ikea, and the big rug is Pottery Barn Kids.

Favorite Items

I have to say I love how the alphabet wall turned out--it was definitely a labor of love, requiring multiple trips to Hobby Lobby and many hours of work, but I think it looks great!  I also love the print from Avalisa--I think it adds a really fun pop of color to the room.


I tried to keep the space mostly neutral with grays and soft pink and gray/blue and then added some fun pops of bright pink.  I really like the bright colors and how we have lots of space to play.  We also ordered most of our furniture from Pottery Barn--it was pricey, but worth it for the great quality; that glider is by FAR the most comfortable chair I've ever owned!

I used a tutorial from a youtube video to make the tissue poms--just google "tissue pom tutorial" and tons of videos will pop up! They're super easy--you just need tissue paper, jewelry wire, clear fishing line, and scissors.

Love the nursery! Can you tell me how you made the paper lantern. Id like to make one for my daughters nursery in yellow, pink and green.

Thank you so much for the positive feedback!

The paint color is a Benjamin Moore color that we took and had matched at Lowe's to save some it actually turned out a bit differently than the swatch, but we still loved it! The color is "Thundercloud".

I like your alphabet wall. Love the colors. And yeah, it's nice that this isn't too girly-girl and you used very simple yet lovely decorative elements.
