This nursery was designed for our son or daughter - who we are expecting to arrive in early October! The nursery is full of colorful textiles, DIY projects and sentimental reminders of good times my husband and I have had together as a family of two!

Design Inspiration

I knew that we weren't finding out the gender of our baby so my original thought was the space had to be fit for a little boy or girl.  All beige or grey wasn't something I wanted to do - color was key!  The rug was the first big-ticket item I purchased and I designed from there!

Decorating Style

My style is coastal casual with a little quirk.  You'll see moments around the nursery that are whimsical and not super serious.

If I had to give this room a "theme" I'd say it's colorful global-inspired.  We have some Mexican influences (the Otomi curtains) and the steer head, a Moroccan pouf, artwork from St. Lucia and of course a globe representing all the other countries!

Favorite Items

Although it's hard to pick just one item, I think my favorite project was the DIY curtain panels.  I love the way they turned out; they have just the right amount of fun and color infused with the insert at the top!

I also love the polka dot ceiling - it was a labor of love for sure but it turned out great!  Check out details on my trials and tribulations of stenciling a ceiling here.


Have fun and be bold!  This is a room for a baby - don't be afraid to use color and pattern!
