Dimitra’s DIY Nursery


I wanted a nursery, out of pinks and purples. A nursery especially for my girl, different than the projects I did already for my clients. Yellow & greige for the walls, with a touch of a mosaic border between them, a handmade moon bed from her grandpa, old furniture painted from mummy, pom-poms, art on the walls, the 40 years old lace for the finishing of the mosquito net,  wallpapers and a lot of love, are some of the ingredients of her room!

Design Inspiration

Sites as Project Nursery, blogs and Pinterest were very helpful to make up my mind about what I want.

Decorating Style

Something between shabby chic and mix & match style

Project Details

Wallpapers: Mobel Haus
Pom Poms and flag banners by me
The clock is IKEA's smycke and I changed it as you can see here.
The light is IKEA's Lyric and I transformed it as you can see here.

Favorite Items

The moon bed of course, made by my dad.


Just remember that  for the first two years, you are who have to feel nice  in the nursery...babies can't seperate colors and schemes, so think what do you like to see the time you spend in there (for breastfeeding, telling fairytales,etc.) Make a relaxing and warm space without  bright colors.
