Bexley’s Eclectic Nursery


We wanted a girly nursery, for our daughter Bexley; just not pinks and purples!

I'm not a fan of matchy-matchy, so we just pulled fabrics and colors together that we loved and her nursery "theme" was complete!

Design Inspiration

Lots of ideas from blogs and pinterest!

Decorating Style


Project Details

Crib: Given to us by my sister and brother in law.

Changing Station: Old piece of family furniture painted black.

Crib Skirt: Made by my mom from fabrics we selected at JoAnn's.

Cornice Board: Wood, covered with a thin layer of polyfill and covered in coordinating fabric.

Crib Bumpers: Boppy Bumpers covered by my mom.

Embroidery Hoops: Painted Black and used old family scarves and materials from the crib skirt.

Letters: Wood.

Frame Collage: Old frames collected, painted black and filled with quotes.

Mirrored doors:  Standard closet doors.

My husband added mirrors and trim.  Idea from The Letter Cottage.

Favorite Items

Chair: Made a rocker from an old sitting chair of my Grandmothers.

Crib Skirt: A vision made to life by my mom


Pull items in a nursery that you like!  Then it will all start coming together.  Don't paint the walls a color that is too in your face. There is really no gray anywhere else in the nursery- but we think it provides a great neutral to her room.

    I mean, I agree it’s a stupid name, not with the whiny chick.

  11. avatar Sexley says:

    What a ridiculous name

  12. avatar oldhag says:

    I agree!

    My 6 year old sons name is Bexley, too!! We lived in London a few years before kids. I worked in the borough of Bexley! I was so surprised to see this! I love the nursery by the way.

  14. avatar Kidman says:

    Love the wooden letters too! Where did you find them?

  15. avatar Mrs.P says:

    Where did you find those amazing letters! I love the design, and I think Bexley is a great name. Very unique!!

  16. avatar KadieBby says:

    Wow! It’s sad to know that there’s people out there that just feel like they need to be so negative and say hateful comments out loud instead of just thinking them to themselves. I didn’t need to know you thought my daughters name was stupid nor was it needed. This website is for positive words not negative.

  17. avatar Baxter says:

    Bexley?! Such a stupid name!

  18. avatar KadieBby says:

    That is so weird you named you daughter Bexley! My 21 month old is named Bexley Justice. How did you find the name? I have never heard it anywhere else so I’m so in shock!

  19. avatar Shelby says:

    What paint color did you use for the walls? I love,love, love it!

  20. avatar BexleysMom says:

  22. avatar Catelyn says:

    Did you make the super cute labels for the pink bins in the closet? If so, what did you use?

  23. avatar BexleysMom says:


    I found the rug on ebay for around $80, I think. The room is around 11×12 and the rug is 4′ round.

  24. avatar Jessica says:

    Where did you get the rug?

  25. avatar Corina says:

    Ooops just saw your other post! Can I please please have your friend’s email address so I can beg him/her to make me some???? ❤

  26. avatar Corina says:

    Bexley’s mom, what about the letters??!! :)

  27. avatar BexleysMom says:

    Katie Gonzalez,

    Her name came about while we weren’t even trying to get pregnant. We drove by an apartment complex named Bexley about once or twice a week and loved the name of it. Then when we started trying and eventually ended up pregnant, we decided Bexley was going to be her name. It was a nice compromise name between my husband (who wanted traditional) and myself (who wanted something a little off beat!)

  28. avatar BexleysMom says:


    Thank you! The letters are wood (baltic birch). I had them cut by a friend using the font Chanel (a font found on They are either 16 or 20″ high- I can’t remember. I painted them Lisa Pink by Delta and hung with with command adhensive.

    I could understand your not wanting pink and purple. I really do not get it why 99.9% of parents think that these are the only colors for girls. I like the way you pulled everything together here. Congratulations this is a great looking room.

  30. avatar Katie Gonzalez says:

    I am wondering how you came up with her name? It is so unique, please share the story!!! :-)

  31. avatar Corina says:

    Obsessed with the letters! Please do share where you found them!

  32. avatar Ysczabel says:

    I think that having no themes is a great way to exercise your creativity and it certainly works in this room. I love it!

  33. avatar STEPHANIE says:

    I would love to know where you purchased the letters as well. Love them :)

  34. avatar Ashley says:

    Did you make the letters or did you purchase them? They are SUPER cute!!
