Sweet & Sophisticated Argyle Nursery for a very special little girl.
My inspiration for the nursery was the bedding. We purchased the bedding set from target.com and couldn't have been more pleased with the quality and price.
For this room I wanted the decor to be fun. I think a child's room should be imaginative and express who they are. Since, we don't know our little Candace yet I wanted to welcome her into the world in a bright & fun space that makes you feel good to be in it.
It was important to me that we create a nursery that my little girl will be able to grow into - so we made a point to choose transitional pieces that can grow with her. The bed converts from a crib to a toddler bed and then to a full sized bed. The changing table was hand-built by my husband. He did such a fabulous job! I wanted a fun window treatment - so I found some fabulous fabric that coordinated with the bedding perfectly on Fabric.com and sewed two long curtains. I didn't like how they just hung in the window so I made a valance. The valance is made out of wood, batten, and covered in fabric. I was going to leave it plain green but thought it needed a bit more personality - so I added the flower clusters and rhinestones. The accent wall we chose to do in an argyle print. I made a stencil out of cardboard and used it to trace out my pattern onto the wall before painting it. The wall was alot of work - but worth it! It really makes the room!
My favorite item in the room has to be the Cherry Blossums print by Oopsy Daisy. The painting really ties the whole room together and looks absolutly fabulous against the pink wall! What I love the most about it though - is that it is a print that she will enjoy for many years.
Don't be afraid to take risks. We thought about playing it safe and painting the walls light green - which would have looked great - but wouldn't have made the bold statement the pink does. Go with your gut and be patient. And most importantly - have fun!
