Baby H’s Pint-sized Nursery


A pint-sized, non-gender specific nursery created with oodles of love! Working with a small space to incorporate high function, storage, pattern and design. Many projects are DIY and were attainable on a tight budget.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a nursery that wasn't 'themed' but was still playful and would inspire creativity and imagination. It was important to me that it wasn't commercial looking and had more of a handmade, custom look. I centered the design around bold graphic patterns like polka dots, chevron stripes and a fresh color scheme of aqua, gray, yellow, and white. My first purchase was the owl stuffed animal from an Etsy artist and my room evolved from there, using the colors in this playful creature to compliment my color scheme.

Decorating Style

Eclectic and modern with a pop of vintage elements and graphic, colorful patterns.

Project Details

DIY Projects: Curtains & Cornices, ceiling painting, salvaged barn pendant light, repainted IKEA dresser with Anthropologie knobs for changing table, button 'H' artwork.

Furniture: White Stackable Storage furniture, Crib Bedding and Zebra Storage Bin- Land of Nod, Dresser - IKEA, Assorted white frames - IKEA, Chevron floor pouf - Etsy, Wall Art - Etsy, Giraffe Bust & Dresser Knobs - Anthropologie, Jenny Lind Crib, Babyletto Glider

Favorite Items

I love the ceiling, it was a labor of love completed by my husband. It's the defining feature of the room in my mind and what our baby will spend the most time looking at. It's fun and gives the room a graphic punch.


Pick a color scheme of 2-3 colors and stick with it. Pick an inspiration piece whether it's a fabric, pattern or piece of art and work off it. This will help keep your design cohesive. Add in pops of color to keep the design fresh and fun. Furniture can be customized with paint and new hardware and it's function can also be modified based on your needs. Above all else, make it a room that your child can be inspired by and grow with.
