Charlie’s Aqua, Pink, and White Nursery


Just enough girly.  Aqua walls with white furniture and touches of pink, green, and brown.


Design Inspiration

Aqua!  Actually this is Benjamin Moore's "Antiguan Sky".  Pottery Barn's Coco Dot nursery bedding and a wonderful photo of it in their catalog!

Decorating Style

Cottage Modern.  I like to reinvent old pieces with paint and details and mix it with new things.  My home is cottage style from 1919 so I've adapted my modern style to fit in here.

Favorite Items

I love how the tree turned out!  I drew first with chalk to outline the tree freehand.  Then I painted with leftover trim paint to fill in.  Last I cut leaf and bird shapes out of scrapbook paper and lightly used spray adhesive to attach them to the wall.


Please don't buy a whole matching set wherever you get your furniture.  It always looks so much more unique and designed to mix it up!  Get some character!
