Baby “E’s” Paris nursery


Handmade aqua and pink French nursery

Design Inspiration

The amazing papercut map of Paris from the French company Famille Summerbelle and the gorgeous daisy fabric (curtains) from Heather Bailey.  I was also inspired by etsy, ohdeedoh, and of course project nursery.

Decorating Style

Eclectic, vintage, playful, and happy.  

Project Details

I love to reuse and repurpose.  This is our fourth baby (first girl) so budget and being environmentally friendly were very important.  All the furniture was bought at thrift stores, and then sanded, painted, and fitted with new hardware.  Even the fixed rail crib was a craigslist purchase!  The bumper and sheet set were from ebay (originally PBK) and the flower blanket and pillow were sewn by me (more Heather Bailey!)  I made a lot of the artwork and then filled up other spaces with items I fell in love with on etsy.  The zigzag blanket on the bassinet was knitted by my mother- in-law, and the paperdoll bookshelf was created by my father-in-law!

Favorite Items

    Wow, that paper-cut map sure looks interesting. I wish you had a better close-up photo of that. I’d like to look at the details. Papercut designs have always amazed me.  I also like the little whimsies you have added in here. It is one nice and feminine nursery!
