This room is mostly a collection of things that we found secondhand. I found the bed on Craigslist before we were really ready to start putting the room together, but I couldn't pass it by. We had decided adding a twin bed to the nursery would allow us sleep in the room with baby if we needed to, or just a place for guests. Both dressers are vintage and chalk painted by me. The changing station tucked into the closet was the boys, I found it at a yard sale years ago. Bedding is all from craigslist and ebay. The crib is new from IKEA. As we are adopting, the crib had to pass strict home study rules. I fell in love with the Coco Dot nursery line from Pottery Barn..and the coordinating BonBon from Pottery Barn Teen. I mixed them up a bit with the BabyBlooms sheets, I love how the floral coordinated perfect with the ribbon colors and my canvas print. The Beatrix Potter items are from my oldest son's nursery and some are vintage Eden toys...
I get ideas from everywhere, but I have to temper that with trying to use what we have. My colors really came from two places, the Coco Dot bedding and the super fun canvas print I found at Ross. All the colors were picked to coordinate with them.
I'm drawn to classic English, French and Scandinavian styles. Tossed together with a bit of North West Coastal Cottage.

I have two.. the canopy bed and my small green dresser. Luckily both can be used long after the baby stage.
The scallop design around the room was done by hand. I used a bowl from the kitchen on a piece of cardboard to make a template. I used the template set against the ceiling to pencil the scallop on the white painted room and then painted aqua up to it with rollers, I used a small brush to fill in the "V" areas between the scallops and finished it off using a brown marker to add a "shadow" effect to the lower points. It gives the room a feeling of having a white canopy over the whole.
You should put a canopy on the bed posts. These posts, when left bare, kinda appear obstructive to the overall look of the room and those extra lines just clutter the space.
That’s a very colorful and interesting artwork on the wall.
