Eden’s Favorite Things Nursery


We had just decorated our daughter's room in our old house before we moved.  With all of the business of every other room, Eden's room suffered for quite a while.  The walls were neon green and yellow, with a huge blue shelf right in the middle.  We couldn't take it any more, so we decided to tackle painting stripes.  It was a challenge that took us three full days, but we did it.  The base colors are off white, gray, and yellow.  There are lots of other color accents in the room, and each detail represents a piece of Eden. Travel, whimsy, funny animals, her favorite books, and a love of herself in the mirror!  Just about everything is within her reach, and that's the way she likes it!

Design Inspiration

I had always wanted to do stripes in our house.  I bought black and white wallpaper for our bathroom that got lost in our move, so stripes were definitely going in my daughter's room.  We have gray throughout the house, so gray stripes were a natural choice for Eden's room.  Then I found the window's roman shade fabric, and it all came together after that.  I just played everything off the white, yellow, and black in the window fabric.

Simple with surprises.

Favorite Items

I love the papier mache animals on the wall.  They represent the wild side of her!


We started with the wall, and everything fell into place from there.  I often decide on the color or the wallpaper of the room first, then it's easier to visualize pieces within that environment.  I also decide on a loose color scheme, then add new colors to that palette to layer and mix it up.

What are your wall colors? I have always wanted to paint our baby's room with horizontal stripes, but now that we are expecting I'm having the worst time finding the right color. I love the way yours turned out and would love to find your colors if you wouldn't mind sharing!
