Gloria’s “Be Kind” Nursery!


This is a nursery made to honor Gloria's namesake: my grandmother.  The blue, pink, and yellow theme looked FUN, calming, and perfect, just like my Tata.

Design Inspiration

I found a print that said "be kind" in blue, yellow, and pink and just knew that had to be the inspiration for the room.  I designed the print, printed it myself, and went from there.

Decorating Style

I would say it's a modern traditional, which doesn't make much sense, but is the best I can think of.

I think this is my favorite room and colors yet. I'd love to know what the fabric is that's on the crib bumper.

Sorry I hadn't responded yet! The fabric is from the "Kumari Garden" fabric collection (just google it) : ) I was obsessed with all of them.
