Inspired by 80’s prep- think Lacoste polo shirts, coupled with 90’s Shabby Chic-think wrought iron chandeliers and water colored flowers, I designed my baby girl Emerald a nursery I believe she’ll really be able to grow up in.
A dress form and tutu I found on Posh Tots website.....I just stared at it and knew that I had to have one for Emmy's room. I found one for $50, spraypainted it white, and made my own floral arrangements to perfectly accent it.
A mix of both Vintage and Modern. I love personal, unique, and handcrafted touches.....
- Paint: Scented Valentine- Benjamin Moore
- The dresser is from Ikea (Hemnes). The original brushed nickel drawer pulls were cleverly replaced with clear crystal pulls to mimic the teardrop beads of chandelier .
- Chair- EKTORP Ikea
- The mirror was a thrift store find that was brought in from another room and spray painted a bright white. The drum shade lamp in apple green perfectly accent the varying shades of pink in the room.
- The picture ledges and bookshelf are Ikea.
- The Crib is a Target find. Many of the room décor accents were received as Baby Shower gifts and incorporated into the room. The flower box, birdhouse, and frames are from an Arts & Crafts store.
- The flower box (Joanns) was used to hold silk flowers, as well as a too cute stuffed animal for an unusual, eye catching accent .
- Curtains: IKEA
- Pink Satin Ribbon: Walmart
- Apothecary Jars that hold colored pencils: Micheals
- Crystal Drawer Pulls: Target
- Bookshelf: EXPEDIT Ikea

My favorite item in the room is definitely the dress form. I made the neck corsage and basket floral arrangements and it is original inspiration for the room.
Create an inspiration board first with photos, paint chips, and ideas. D.I.Y. what you can......spray paint is your friend. Use things that you may already have and "upcycle" them. You can find style at any price point! Be patient, and use the internet first before you drive all over town.
