Girly Chevron and Polka Dots


For me, the nursery planning started the moment when I found out this little bean, my third after having two boys, was a girl! I had ooo'd and aww'd over many a baby girl nursery before but never thought i'd be decorating one of my own one day. In my mind, I was always destined to have 3 boys! 

I knew right off the bat I wanted purple and turquoise, and I new I wanted chevron and polka dots... so I headed straight to Etsy for inspiration. Most people head to pinterest, I know I know, I'm just an Etsy girl.

I thought starting with the perfect bedding would be a good place to start and after endlessly searching I could not find a set that had everything I was looking for to save my life. Hmph. So I had to switch gears, I had to think outside of the box.. I went to a fabric site instead. After a lot of trial and error I finally came up with an inspiration board of fabrics that I knew I would love.... and the rest fell into place with the help of some seriously knock-your-socks-off vendors, a few fun DIY projects, and a lot of love <3

Design Inspiration

I fell in love with three very different fabrics... once I came to terms with them not having to be matchy-matchy in order to look awesome together, I ran with the mismatched feel and coordinated the rest of the room to the three patterns/colors.

Decorating Style

Bright punchy colors, and bold chunky patterns!

Favorite Items

TOUGH choice!! I'll say the Butterfly Mobile.. it took a very long time even after buying it as a "kit" to make it easier. But the first time I walked past her room and caught the sun shining on it , I stopped in my tracks to admire it :)


Don't be afraid to try new things and to put things together that don't coordinate perfectly, just try it.. and if it doesn't work out in the end, return it. (If Target had a maximum amount of returns in one month I would be banned!)

Don't find a picture from a catalog that has a few elements you like and try to recreate it, find 10 pictures you like and find a way to pull ideas from each of them and incorporate everything you love!
