Beckett’s Nursery


I wanted to decorate the nursery in Yellow, Gray, White and Apple Green... this was challenging to say the least but I am thrilled with the way it turned out. I used a light gray paint on the walls, white furniture and yellow and green accents.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration were the colors, from there I went with patterns of stripes, elephants and houdstooth to complete the look.

Decorating Style

My decorating style would probably be considered elecletic.

Project Details

Most items in the room are DIY, my sister in law graciously offered to update a glider I got from a friend. She painted it and recovererd the cushions with the houdstooth fabric I picked out. I made the pinwheel mobile, cornice,pillows on the sofa, and recovered the ottoman.

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the room is probably the mobile I made myself. I also love the ABC/123 prints on either side of the crib. 


It took many trips to the fabric store to acheive the look I was going for, I was diligent and It paid off.

thank you! It's actually pinwheels in 3 different sizes made with cardstock. I found a  template online to make the pinwheels, used 2 different patterns of cardstock (solid on the outside,pattern on the inside), bought some fancy brads and used those to hold the pinwheels together in the center. I found an exisitng mobile and cut off the mobile part to use the rings and hung the pinwheels with thick thread. I will see if I can post a better pic of the mobile close up. My son loves watching them twirl!!

Yellow makes the room look sunny and bright, so nice choice. Your nursery looks really clean and clutter-free. Wish you showed us more pictures of the room, though.
