Chinoiserie Inspired Botanical Shared Room


Initially, I chose the colors and theme for this room from a French children’s book called Las Ricas Horas de Jacominus Gainsborough, by the most amazing illustrator, Rebecca Dautremer. Her use of the deep greens on the cover, plus her use of creative, animal characters and landscapes made me invision this room for my two oldest girls. It was the perfect book to go with my botanical theme as well!

My tip for creating a nursery theme is to choose one item that you know will be going in the room: the muse. Pick something with the colors you like and the theme you want, then create around it from there! Use like-colors and complimentary colors from this and then choose your mix of textured pieces that go with the color-theme.
