Bold and Bright Colored Nursery


When I began planning my daughter's nursery over a year and a half ago, I knew that I wanted the room to be fun, bright, and cheerful, but not too childish. I wanted the room to have the ability grow with my daughter over the next few years.   Now that my daughter is one, I see that her nursery is everything I I envisioned it to be.  It is such a cheerful space and my daughter absolutely loves it.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this project was an image I saw on a blog of a bright colored nursery.

Decorating Style

I have a bold and eclectic decorating style. The nursery is reflective of that style.

Project Details

Most of this nursery was DIY.

Dresser and Table: Craigslist and we refinished them

Glider: Hand me down from my sister and reupholstered

Crib:  Floor model from a local furniture store

Bedding: handmade by my mother in law (crib sheet is from Target)

Rug: Overstock

PaperandLaceDesigns Yarn Wreath: Etsy

Bookshelf Tree: My husband painted the tree and made the shelves

Lamp: Vintage and recovered lamp shade

Gallery Wall:  Various prints from TheWheatfield, ModGenesDesign, Wallfry.  The other items are from Hobby Lobby.  The button monograms are from PaperandLaceDesigns.

Favorite Items

I can't choose one item, but if I had to I would say it is the tree that my husband painted.  It really pulled the whole room together and gave it just the right touch of whimsy,


Just try to find one item that inspires you and use that as your stepping stone to plan the nursery.  Websites such as Project Nursery and Pinterest are also super helpful.

I have been obsessed with this woodland fabric from PB. I see that it's from adult bedding (not crib bedding). Did you use an adult sized duvet to make the crib skirt and changing table? And, if so, what size duvet? I *really* want to make crib sheets out of the material. <3 <3 <3 Thanks!!!

I love the material on the changing pad. Any clue if I can find this today?

The fabric on the changing table and crib skirt is from a Pottery Barn line from around 2012. We had the duvet and loved it!
