Calm and soothing with punches of fun color.

Design Inspiration

I wanted lots of white and linen in the room to keep things neutral. I found the great curtain fabric just before we found out we were having a girl, and knew it would be perfect. I love the added pops of coral pink and blue hues against all the white.

Decorating Style

Eclectic, soothing and serene.

Project Details

The larger items were gifted, like the crib, rug and rocker/glider. All are from Potter Barn. The floating shelves are from Ikea and the white nesting tables were found at TJ Maxx.

The rest of the room is one big DIY project. I painted the stripes myself, refinished the Craigslist dresser as a changing table, made the LOVE art and the I Am A Child of God print. I sewed the curtain panels and the ruffle crib skirt and spray painted the thrifted mirror and frames in the room. The ABC canvas was a gift, originally from Gordman's.

Favorite Items

All of the projects in this room were extra special to me because of who they were for. :) But I especially love the big LOVE art, made from reclaimed wood.


Don't be afraid to put your personal touch on a room, especially a nursery. And look for fabrics and objects in out-of-the-ordinary places. I made the ruffled crib skirt from a 100% silk curtain panel that I found at Tuesday Morning, in the clearance bin. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it!

    I like the color you used for that striped wall (which you did in a lighter and darker shade of the same color). I also like the alphabet board and the LOVE art.

    LOVE it!! I love the pom pom cluster and the colors. You did an amazing job!! It’s funny- my best friend is from Oklahoma and her daughter’s name is Evangeline too. It’s a beautiful name! Good luck to you!

    Beautiful nursery! The color of the walls are gorgeous! My daughter’s name is also Evangeline (we call her Eva for short).

    Really?? I haven’t come across anyone else with the name Evangeline until last week at church.. apparently there’s a little girl named Evangeline that also goes by Evie in the nursery! Crazy!

    Thanks so much for the sweet comments about her room!

    It’s one of those rare names that is unusual but beautiful! My daughters name is Genevieve which is becoming more and more popular. I guess that means people like it though right?!

    I absolutely love this room. Do you mind sharing where you got the fabric for the curtains? I love this pattern and want to make some panels for my baby girls nursery.
