Baby Sister’s Nursery


I didn't want a frilly, light pink, ballerina, gaa-gaa-goo-goo baby room. I wanted something the baby could grow into and something that I would love to spend time in. I knew I wanted something bright and cheery and colorful to counteract the gloomy, grey, nasty weather we get 9 months out of the year here in the Pacific Northwest. I knew I had to have a chandelier. I had to have a glider chair. I wanted white sheer curtains. I wanted hot pink, aqua and mustard yellow. I wanted a little shabby chic, a little bohemian, a little hawaiian, a little bit of everything that I loved.

Design Inspiration

I came across V's nursery by Designing Dawn here on Project Nursery which led me to her blog with lots more inspiration!

Decorating Style

Modern, warm, homey, a little vintage, classic, timeless, bright and cheery

Favorite Items

My favorite item has to be the dresser.  I found it on Craigslist and it matches the set I had as a child (that was my moms from when she was a girl).  I wanted to update it and use it to brighten the room so I painted it aqua.


wear a mask when you spray paint :)
