Cozy Light Blue and Red Nursery


this is sweet jori's new nursery. we recently did an addition to our 100 yr old home. so when decorating the new nursery, I wanted to try to make it feel like a cozy "old fashioned" room with lots of country character.

Design Inspiration

I was inspired by the comfortable feeling of a warm, old home.  

Decorating Style

Eclectic!  I love a little bit of everything.  I am not pulled to one particular style.  I decorate with the things I love, and those are all different things.  

Project Details

I did this room on a really tight budget.  I made the crib skirt from and bed sheet, I made the crib bumper with fabric from my moms sewing closet, we repainted and old dresser and book shelf.  I also made the little flag banner over her window, the boxes backed with fabric, recovered the circle frames, and hung an old window.  I just love spending time in there.  It was so fun to put together and now so fun to watch my baby girl grow up in.  

Favorite Items

The crib bedding and flags over the window.


Have fun, go with your heart.  Pick a light color to start with and then add your punches with the other decorative items.

Very pretty.  I like the wall color alot.  And I think you did a good job trying to blend the room with the style of your older home.

What I like most about this room is that it looks simple and clean, without the fuss and frills. Old-fashioned goodness!
