Girl’s Orange and Pink Nursery


We changed our small playroom into a nursery for our second child-a girl.  I wanted to create a welcoming bright space that maximized space with various storage solutions.  I saw tissue pom poms used above the crib in other blogs/websites and thought that was a fantastic take on the classic mobile.

Design Inspiration

My mom, who is a designer herself, always told me to find a statement piece that you love for a new room and use that as the inspiration for all else.  For me, that was the  Ikat rug.  I  loved the bright orange with fuschia color combination and incorporated those colors throughout the room.

Decorating Style

My style is  eclectic - I like modern, vintage, and global and try to incorporate all of that in my spaces.  I am definitely NOT afraid of color and mixing prints/patterns.

Project Details

I did not want to splurge too much on this room, but was able to find great pieces/art work at reasonable prices.  The Poang chair, white corner shelving, laundry hamper and dresser are from Ikea:

The Petit Collage prints I got from Gilt:

I got the following items from Daytrip Society ( - three prints to the left of dresser; stone herringbone throw on Poang chair; Sea Bag on white lack book shelf in corner; and Deer stuff animal in crib (

The wall storage above the dresser is from CB2. I keep the diaper changing gear in these.

The three white framed mirrors are from Target, as is the frame that the Mini Mouse print is in, the orange frame on the lack corner book case, and the table lamp on the storage unit.

Finally, the print to the left of the white-framed mirrors is from

Favorite Items

It is hard for me to choose.  I love the rug and the tissue pom poms the best, I guess.


I would say start with a statement piece - whether it be a rug; art work; wallpaper, or a piece of furniture.  Get your inspiration from that and build the room around.  Take your time to look around for interesting pieces - don't rush to buy everything at one place.

Lovely and quirky room. I like that tall, slim shelf.
