A black/white/pink nursery with a touch of polka dots and primary colors.
I wanted a room that would grow with our baby girl, and I thought I might want some black and white elements. When I saw the Alexander Henry "Starling" fabric, that became the element that tied everything together.
Fine decorating on a budget! I like to spend a little money on a lot of things, and then more money on a few key pieces. I could live at Home Goods.
I found one element and then worked from there -- picking things up online on etsy or through babybedding.com. Then I would bring home different items from Home Goods, Target, Marshalls, etc., and see what truly worked -- keeping the receipt, I would return whatever didn't quite fit.
The bumper, skirt, and crib sheets are from Babybedding.com -- the fabric is starling. I custom-designed the bumper, and then purchased the black skirt and sheet.
The black curtains are from Target.
The paint is Behr Memories.
The black leather rocker/recliner is from Bernie and Phyl's furniture store.
The white table, the black and white lamp, the mirror, the cutpaper butterflies, and the pink knobs on the dresser and closet are from Home Goods.

The black and white pillow is from Target.

Don't be afraid to buy things that you like, even if they don't "work" in the color scheme. You'd be surprised how things all start to fall together...
