Candace’s Fabulous Nursery


Sweet & Sophisticated Argyle Nursery for a very special little girl.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for the nursery was the bedding. We purchased the bedding set from and couldn't have been more pleased with the quality and price.

Decorating Style

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.

Project Details

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 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!

Favorite Items

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!

I just love what you did here.  It's marvelous!  Did you make that vase/lamp on the dresser?

Great work with the valance!  I think that really made your curtains even more beautiful.  But I was a little concerned that the green will not match the other colors here.

I can just imagine the amount of work you both put into this room and I am in awe with your hard work.  It's a beautiful and unique room!

My paint color is Candace Pink at Sherwin Williams. It's a custom color I had them match to the bedding. They used a sample color that I got from Home Depot called "Satin Ribbon" - its part of the Disney Paint Collection - to get the shade just right.

Yeah, the bedding in person is more of a melon/hot pink. I think the Satin Ribbon Disney Paint was the closest match I could get. Some of the pictures on made it look like it was light pink - and it definitley was not that.

I ordered the fabric from It's called Premier Prints Madison Candy Pink/Chartreuse. Item number UE-254.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. I'm sure your room will come together beautifully just in time. Can't wait to see it!

I got the same bedding!  I am trying to decide on what color to paint the walls.. they were a pink, but wrong shade... what is your paint color?   The bedding is looking a lot darker in your pictures than in person. 

Room looks great! I LOVE the painting too!   Also, what is name of fabric for curtains?  I cant tell, but I think I have that fabric for another project and I'm wondering if same??  

My due date is Feb 7th and my daughter informed me how sad it was that your due date is after me and your room is already complete b/c mine is not! ha!
