Baby Ava’s Nursery


Ava's nursery theme is pink, grey and white stripes, polka dot and chevron pattern. This is our first baby and we wanted to make her room very special and unique. I designed the nursery myself with help from my husband.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration was the colors pink, grey and white with an emphasis on the chevron pattern. My husband and I painted stripes in our laundry room, I always knew we would use the same technique in our nursery if we had a girl.

Decorating Style

Modern with a fun girly twist!

I think it is really important to take your time designing your nursery and don't be afraid to try new things or do a DIY! It's amazing how much money you can save by making things yourself.

I ordered the same Glider from Buy Buy Baby (same colors and everything since it's so neutral) - still waiting for it to arrive - do you like it? I sat in it in the store, and at first it felt like it pushed forward a little, but for the price (which was still more than I wanted to spend) i went with it because it was (a) pretty (b) muuuuch cheaper than some of the others (c) more comfortable than the wooden ones that were less expensive. Interested to hear your opinion on it now that it's officially IN your nursery! (Beautiful nursery by the way!!)

I really love the way the glider looks in the nursery and so far it also seems to fit nice. The room is not huge so I was worried bringing in too many pieces of furniture. Also, even though it was expensive I felt it was actually a really good deal since it included the ottoman and if you want you can even order custom fabrics or patterns. I just liked the grey best for our room and I can re-use it for a baby boy if we were to have a son next time. My baby isn't here yet, so I can't say if its comfortable for nursing or rocking a baby. However, I have sat in it from time to time to just imagine what that time will be like and I find it very comfortable. I am also 5' 8" so I had trouble finding a chair that had a tall enough back that I could rest my head back (a big problem with the gliders at BRU). But I think this was a good fit. With all that being said, I hope you love your glider! I was so anxious for it to come in stock! Its very exciting! Good luck to you and thanks for the compliment!
