Baby Girl Leah’s Pink, White, and Sea Green Nursery


When I found out I was having a girl, I knew I didn't want a classic pink room. I knew if she was going to be anything like me, she would want some "boy" colors in the mix. I decided on the color scheme first: sea green walls, white furniture, and pops of pink.

Design Inspiration

My grandmother's chair would be the centerpiece. It was the perfect shade of pink (not too bright, not too pale - more like a rose or mauve color). Also, I had seen some illustrations on Etsy with elephants and bunnies and I thought they were the cutest pair. Two of my favorite animals which would go great in a nursery.

Decorating Style

Classic, colorful.

Favorite Items

My grandmother's chair - the one vintage piece in the room. My childhood memories always come flooding back when I look at this chair. I have pictures of my brothers and I sitting in this chair in her living room during holidays. Just like my grandma did, the chair brought everything else in the room together perfectly.


Also the pillow covers. I saw them on pinterest first and LOVED the patterns. They were a bit of a splurge, but I figured I saved everywhere else, so why not!?


The Wainscoting was the most difficult part. We had to drive to 8 different Lowe's because it was discontinued. Luckily I have very handy in-laws who were able to install it in just a few days. They also painted and installed the ceiling fan! Having help like that definitely saved us some money. I wanted to save money and DIY everywhere I could but I did allow myself to splurge on one thing.


I wasn't afraid to stick to one strict color scheme. I wanted pops of pink but if you look closely, they're all different shades. I found things here and there that went with the overall "theme" but really it was a big mix of things that I thought would compliment each other.
