Ava’s Glamorous Pink and Gold Nursery


This is the nursery for our first baby! It was so much fun to decorate and design for a girl because I am SO girly. We can't wait for her arrival in April.

Design Inspiration

I first found the vintage Barbie prints and got them framed. I based everything off of those. The wood furniture was mine from when I was a baby. My parent's had it re-painted for us and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. The old trunk is also a family heirloom passed down on my husband's side.

Decorating Style

I'd say I lean towards French Country.

Favorite Items

My favorite items would be the flower ottoman, barbie prints, and crib. I also love my glider. It is the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in!


I took my time and just searched around a lot of different stores until finally one day it all came together. It was fun to do it little by little and see it unfold. Also, look for things you already have around the house. Spray paint can do wonders!
