Contemporary Nursery with Some Room to Grow


I designed this nursery especially for my daughter Marann.  She was born February  19, 2013.  The nursery is vibrant and full of life just like her.  A little bit modern, a little bit whimsical, and filled with so many things we love!

Design Inspiration

The rug from Anthropologie!  After finding this little gem, I carefully selected pieces to compliment this special piece.

Decorating Style

Modern/Contemporary  with a touch of whimsy

Favorite Items

The Rug!  I also love the flamingo print. Oh, and the light fixture... I am obsessed with that too!


I like to find one piece that I can't live without, small or large, and build a room around that item, specifically.  For Marann's nursery, it was the rug that I could not live without.  I spend a lot of time looking for great deals, and one-of-a-kind finds.  For some of the nursery staples, I went with neutral colors that could easily work in a second child's nursery in the future.  The rug features so many fun accent colors, I was very careful too not go overboard with color in other places, so as to not compete with rug.  We are really happy with the way it turned out, and I think baby girl likes it too!
