Emerson’s Yellow, Aqua, and Pink Nursery


Fun, bright nursery with a girly twist.  The room is pretty tiny though, with 2 windows so it was challenging getting everything to fit!  It's cozy but we like it.

Design Inspiration

The framed tree fabric (Pretty Little Things) had the exact color scheme I was going for.  I chose that first and everything else fell into place. I also love looking online at blogs, pinterest, etc. to get inspiration.

Decorating Style

Modern/eclectic.  I love bright bold patterns and clean lines, but also vintage items.  I sometimes have expensive taste though, so I love finding ways to replicate a look without a lot of money!

Favorite Items

The chevron curtains - definitely a labor of love by I adore how they turned out!


Have fun and don't stress too much.  Try to do an inspiration board (even in microsoft word) to get a good visual of what you like.  I know what I like but sometimes they don't go well together.  If I do an inspiration board I can visually see it all come together before I "pull the trigger"
