Charlie’s Pink and Orange Modern Nursery


When we found out we were having a girl, I knew I didn't want a super feminine room. I'm a big fan of modern design and "frilly" isn't my style.  I liked the idea of including a lot of color in her room, so I chose to focus on orange, pink and red. My mom and I DIY'd almost everything in the room - it was a labor of love and I'm thrilled with how it turned out!

Design Inspiration

Of course the pom-pom thing was inspired by a post on Ohdeedoh. It bothers me a little that it's really popular, but there's a reason - they're awesome! I used leftover lanterns from our wedding ceremony and a hanging lightbulb from Ikea to turn it into a light installation.

I kind of want to see the room with the sparrows... What color did you use to paint it?

Love this nursery because it was for my granddaughter and it was so much fun to have a part (sewing) in making it happen. Sara has great ideas.

What an amazing job! Every inch of that bedroom has characte and I love how unisex it is - orange is a cheery color but I have to admit the custom covered glider is my favorite! Nice work!
