I wanted a feminine nursery that incorporated elements of clean lines as well as traditional. We wanted a cohesive look, but not too match-matchy. I'm so lucky to have a handy husband and a mom who paints well!
I knew I wanted pinks and tangerines, and found the sweet curtain fabric that was perfect! I love that it incorporated birds as well, and had fun incorporating them here and there throughout the room.
I suppose our decorating style would be eclectic with a bit of beachy cottage thrown in.

15- Wall Collage: Mirror, chairs and vintage line drawing of mother and child, all heirloom hand-me-downs. Bird print, printed off the internet and Bless Her Always prayer for Etsy seller Enduringarts (the collage is still waiting for an initial, once she's named!)
16- Vintage books throughout the room were mine as a child
As most mamas feel, we put so much love into these spaces for our little ones, that it's hard to choose a favorite item. I think for me, it would have to be the wall collage as it incorporates meaningful heirlooms. I also love the knitted blanket that I made for her.
Be patient...I have a hard time with this, as I want it to come together all at once. However any well-designed room isn't going to be picked off the shelf from a store, but slowly collected and lovingly chosen!
