This is a fun nursery filled with DIY projects and thrift store makeovers.  The budget was tight so we used things we already had and inexpensive treasures we found along the way.  I played with patterns and textures to keep things sophisticated yet playful.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this room came from the yellow pouf in the room.  I wanted it to be fun and playful, but also a space that would grow with her as she grows.  

Decorating Style

I have an appreciation for all decorating styles.  I love clean lines and modern interiors, but I also love adding vintage elements and a little sparkle to my decor to keep things interesting.  

Project Details

This room was done on a pretty tight budget so I used a mixture of thrift store finds and DIY projects to achieve the look I wanted.  I updated a hand me down crib with a DIY headboard.  It gives the room a more sophisticated feel and keeps the crib from looking too plain.  http://www.dwellingsbydevore.com/2012/01/crib.html

Favorite Items

My favorite item in this room would have to be the DIY birdcage chandelier I made for the space.  It's so fun and playful and my little one loves looking at it.  Tutorial found here:  http://www.dwellingsbydevore.com/2011/12/tweet.html


Don't be afraid of color, textures, and patterns.  Mix things up to keep things from looking too packaged.

    Gorgeous! I love the color scheme! This room is really beautiful. Fantastic DIY chandelier, it is really clever and pretty. I’m not a fan of overly babyish nurseries, so it’s really neat to see this refreshing and timeless room. Perfect!

    The DIY birdcage chandelier is a really interesting touch. Just based on your photo, the birds look rather real. I also like your subtle play with prints and patterns and textures. They do not really shout for attention, but when you look closely, it’s there.
