When we found out we're having a baby, I began designing the nursery, at least in my head, immediately! I knew that I would be spending a tremendous amount of time in the nursery, so I wanted the space to be soothing and serene.  More details are on my blog.

Design Inspiration

I had a general idea of what I wanted the nursery to look and feel like. We then came across the radio flyer car and worked around it. Pulling out the wood tones and injecting soft blue/gray shades to give the space a soothing feel.

Decorating Style

A mixture of traditional, contemporary and vintage.

Start early! It takes a lot of time to put the space together the way you envision it. Especially if you're working full time like I used to, I would get on it asap.

    Wow what a beautiful room! I love how calm and soft everything is. I especially like that the decor is not overwhelming. I could spend hours in that space.

    Hi! I’m having trouble with the link. What type of crib is this? It’s beautiful and just the style I;m looking for. Thanks so much, Jane

    Hi Jane, It looks like it’s from RH Baby & Child. However this nursery was published five years ago, so that style is not likely to still be available. Maybe they will have something similar though? Good luck in your search!
