Baby Girl Woodland Nursery


I wanted the nursery that was traditional with and a little whimsical but not typical baby decor so when I settled on a woodland theme I knew I had a big project ahead of me. It’s really difficult finding baby decor that isn’t bright pastels or really cartoony. Plus, all the inspiration rooms I found where very heavily boy themed so I had to find my own inspiration for this room and pieced this room together, little by little, over 5-6 months

Design Inspiration

I bought a lamp from Pottery Barn, years ago, that was a cream tree and I loved it so much that I wanted to create a nursery that I could put it in.

Decorating Style

Classic with a few whimsical touches thrown in

Project Details

Pottery Barn for the lamp

Etsy for the wall prints, fingerprint trees and quilt

Hobby Lobby for the moss used on the frames and name, woodland decor

Babies R Us for crib and rocking chair

We used a lot of items that we already had. My husband took the doors off an old bookcase, sanded it and painted it yellow. Most of the decorations were from my baby shower or ceramic animals, frames or greenery I had previously decorated with. There's a plush hedgehog that my father gave me when I was in high school as well as an owl that previously belonged in my grandparent's home that found new homes in her nursery.

Favorite Items

An item would be the family finger print trees. I love that every member of her extended family is represented by their finger print in her nursery!


Find inspiration in unlikely places, like a piece of fabric or a curtain tie back. I also loved looking at paintings featuring elves and fairies that helped me nail down the color palette so I could start looking for fabric to tie it all together!
