When I found out I was having a girl, I knew I wanted to go GIRLY! After a very rough-and-tumble boy, I knew it was time for florals and pinks. My jumping off point was the gorgeous Jolie Wallpaper from The Project Nursery Shop. Heart eyes for days! I quickly decided that everything else needed to be fairly neutral with a very clean design and minimal pattern and wall decor. We wanted a very soft gray paint color with pops of gold and just a little bit of pink.

My favorite part of the nursery has to be the gorgeous wallpaper, but a close second is the super-sweet hand-lettered name wall sign from Six Eleven Co. A few other notes - I tried ordering several different more budget-friendly drapes, but ultimately landed with RH Baby & Child's drapes, which were a bit of an investment for me (hello high ceilings!) but were SO worth it. They are amazing quality and block the light so perfectly during nap time.

I fell for the Babyletto Hudson crib long ago and think that it's clean lines and modern look are perfect paired with the whimsical floral wallpaper.

I'm always looking for ways to stay a little more organized so the baby shoe organizer DIY was a fun project. Take a simple tension rod and small curtain hooks, spray paint them gold (if you like gold as much as me!) and hang your baby shoes for easy finding. Side note: the shelves above the glider were another easy project - bought them from IKEA and spray painted the brackets (originally silver) gold for a chic look.

What a fun project was for this to work on for our sweet baby girl!

    Absolutely love your design style! I find out the gender of my first baby in a few weeks and am secretly hoping for a girl! Could you tell me the gray paint color you used and also where you found the book shelves? Thank you!

  3. 3

    Where did you get the wallpaper? I found it on etsy but it is more of a mural rather than wallpaper. I have an awkward wall so I need true wallpaper. Thanks!

    How do you find the company that made the “Harper”sign? I tried googling “Six Eleven Co” but a bike shop pops up only. Thank you!

    Gorgeous! So many things I love about your design. Just curious where you purchased the wood for the book ledge? I love the stain color.

    Hi Beth, Do you recall the paint color? (we have a house full of girls, would love a neutral grey wall with this mural vs pink.)

    Beautiful! Love how the wood shelves look with the books. Are the walls painted grey? Do you recall the color?

    @Christen Hoselton – Congratulations!! The paint color is Benjamin Moore Barren Plain – it works perfectly with this wallpaper. It’s a super light gray with subtle purple undertones. The bookshelves are from Target’s Threshold brand. They come in a box. Hope this helps!

  23. 23

    @Katie – This wallpaper is from The Project Nursery Shop. It does come in rolls to create a mural – but shoot a note to Shop {at} projectnursery dot com and they can help you with potential custom sizing.

    @Caroline – The wall color is Barren Plain from Benjamin Moore

    Where did you find this dresser??? It is perfect! I’m having such a hard time finding a great white dresser for my baby girl’s room.

    Love the glider that you chose from Wayfair! When I looked at it on their website, it was hard to tell what all the fabrics look like. Can you tell me what fabric and color you purchased for your room? Thanks!

    @Christen I chose the “Bull Natural” which is a slight cream. The stark white version scared me a little bit. The one I chose is cream, but not yellow-y. I highly recommend!

    What are the dimensions of your Harper sign!?!? I’m going to make one myself! It’s the perfect size

    Hi there! Do you happen to remember how many rolls of wallpaper you needed for the room? (I’m wondering/praying this is a bigger roll than “normal”.)

  40. 40

    Casey, I looked into the mural (beautiful) and it is priced by the size not the roll. They do custom sizes but it starts at $400+. We decided against it because our room was long and more narrow, it would have been $799 in wall mural.

  41. 41
  42. 42

    @Casey – Yes, the wallpaper is by size of the wall. The cost is for 150″ w x 108″ h, but if you need something larger or longer, shoot a quick email to [email protected] and they can help you out on custom pricing.

  43. 43

    Hello — did you get the dresser in white satin and the changing pad topper in white (or dove)? Do they match?

    I love your pottery barn chandelier!! I was wondering does it put enough light in the room with it being only a 1light bulb chandelier? Thanks!

  47. 47

    I loveeee this nursery!! I’ve been searching for a rug like this and can’t find one anywhere. Please share where you bought this rug!

    This room is beautiful! I’m having the hardest time finding a glider and I love the look of your Wayfair one but in all honesty, is it comfortable?? I’m worried about ordering from online and not actually being able to sit in one to test it. Thanks in advance!

  50. 50

    This is the most perfect nursery! Love every bit of it. Can you tell me where you got the crib skirt? I love that it covers a bit underneath the mattress but isn’t long enough to touch the floor.

  51. 51
  52. 52

    @Cindy – I do find the glider to be comfortable for rocking/nursing. I’m 5’6 and it fits me just fine. Comfy enough for my 6’2 husband, too. The quality was excellent. Not sure how comfortable sleeping in it would be, though. Haven’t had to do that, yet! :-)

    @Amanda – Thank you so, so much. The crib skirt is from the Project Nursery Shop: https://shop.projectnursery.com/collections/crib-skirts/products/scalloped-white-crib-skirt-gray-trim. I adjusted mine so it’s not as long, so it can be shorter or longer.

    @Jill – Thank you for the kind words!! Both the crib skirt and sheet are from the Project Nursery Shop. Linking them both for you here:

    Hi Lauren! Thank you for being so attentive to all the questions! Just found out I’m having a girl, and I love neutrals, hate the whole throw up pink look. You’ve done BEAUTIFULLY with this room and I’ll be purchasing through all of your links. Quick question, the Wayfaire ottoman in your nursery is the color “Papaya” correct? Hate to ask, just wanted to be sure!

  58. 58

    Hi Noelle,
    Thank you so much! To clarify, the Wayfair ottoman is actually the “Light Brown” color. It’s such a beautiful shade and will transition to almost any room in the house when our rocking days are over!

  59. 59

    Hi Lauren, it looks like you painted the sides of the drawers on the dresser pink? Am I making that up? If so, how did you do that and which color paint did you use? Love all of it!

    Hi there! For spray painting the IKEA bookshelf brackets…. did you use a metallic gold or the brushed gold spray paint? If you happen to remember the exact spray paint you used I would love to know because those brackets turned out great! I want to spray paint all of the hardware that is going into our nursery!

  63. 63

    Hi Kayleigh, I used “Metallic Gold” spray paint from Rustoleum. That was the exact name. Hope this helps. Hope you’ll share your nursery with us once it’s complete.

    Hi there,
    I bought an ikea shelf and those brackets to spray paint but apparently I bought the wrong size thickness of the shelf because the brackets are too big. Do you happen to know what shelf you used?

    Hi Lisa, Beth is right! But there are two sizes, so wondering if you picked up the smaller size brackets and maybe the larger size shelves? Good luck!

  71. 71

    Hi there! I am in love with your nursery and am totally copying it for our baby girl! Just wondering, for the IKEA dresser, did you get “white stain” or “white”? We have purchased the Babyletto Hudson crib all ready and I want to be sure the dresser matches. Thank you!!

  72. 72

    Hi Jill,

    Lauren has the white dresser from IKEA. She says it’s not an exact match (the dresser is a little creamier than the crib) but with them on opposite sides of the room, she really doesn’t notice. I can tell you that I have the same dresser in white stain and it is more of a true white, but the finish is not glossy like the white. Good luck with your nursery! We hope you’ll add it to our gallery. We love seeing nurseries that were inspired by other nurseries!

    It’s actually meant to hold magazines! Lauren spray painted it gold. It was not recently purchased, but maybe that will help you in your search for finding something similar.

  75. 75
  76. 76

    Hi @Jessi, the bookends are passed down from my grandmother. But I would scour thrift stores and break out the gold spray paint for a similar look!

  77. 77

    Where is the fur that’s on the back of the glider from? I can’t seem to find small ones anywhere. Thank you!

    Hi – love this nursery! I tried to click the links posted above for the crib skirt, but they aren’t working. Is the crib skirt still available / can you share the info?


  82. 82
  83. 83

    @Megan – unfortunately, the scalloped edge crib skirt is no longer available.

    @Faith – The drawer pulls are from Hobby Lobby!

    Hi Lauren.

    I was wondering where you purchased the frame your ‘Harper’ print is in?

    Thank you so much!

  85. 85

    Hi Ash, Its actually part of the wooden sign from Six Eleven Co, not a separate frame. Hope this helps!

    Do you happen to know the name of the glider from Wayfair? The links just take you to all gliders, not that specific one…

    Hi there – I have the same Ikea dresser and am looking to purchase the changing table topper that you used by Da Vinci. I was wondering where you purchased the changing table pad that fit so nicely into the table topper? Thank you!

  92. 92
  93. 93

    @Jessica – It’s the Nora Swivel Glider. Wayfair must be redirecting the link because they are sold out.

    Hi did you purchase the “brass” or the “brushed brass” window hardware? And where did you get the curtain rings? Thank you!

    Hello! I looked through all the comments and no one asked, where are the books from on the shelves? I have a little space left on my floating shelves and love the way those look!

    First of love this room and I am using very similar color palettes. I bought the same curtains and maybe I’m not thinking clearly but how did you use the rings on the panel?

  108. 108

    Hi Ashley, Thank you! I believe I used the hardware that came with the curtains and then got brass curtain rings to attach to those. Hope this makes sense!

    Hi, can you tell me which white stain you got on the Ikea dresser? I’m looking to get the dresser but unsure of the white or white stain? I am getting a white crib. Thank you!!!

  116. 116

    Hi Beth, I want to purchase the Hemnes dresser for my daughter’s first baby. Did you attach the changing topper to the back of the dresser? If so is there a trick or hack to do so? I don’t know if there is enough wood on the back to dill into. Thank you,

  117. 117

    Hi! Do you know what size (width) of drapery panels you purchased to achieve that amount of fullness/gathering as well as the total width of your window? RC drapery is available in a width of either 50” or 100”. I absolutely love how full your panels look + the degree of gathering and am hoping to recreate that look in my daughter’s nursery! Thank you!!

  118. 118

    @Julie WIllenkin – The window is actually quite narrow! I extended the curtain rod to give the illusion of a larger window, but I’m sure I got the 50 inch. Two 50 inch panels for a 36 inch wide window was plenty! Thanks so much, appreciate the kind words!

    @Lory Butler – it’s actually a metal round indoor/outdoor drum table from Target. I don’t think they still carry the exact one, but could probably find a similar style. Hope this helps!
