Harper’s Happy Nursery


Harper's nursery is a bright and fun space, but soothing at the same time.  I wanted to create a room that was great for a girl, but wasn't too "girly."  I also hope that it will be able to grow with her throughout her first few years.

Design Inspiration

I didn't have any one particular inspiration.  I found fabric that I loved for window treatments and that would go with the chosen wall color.  I loved the thought of the "Robin's Nest" wall color with yellow and bright pink accents.  I really just designed as I went along, adding as I found pieces that I liked.

Decorating Style

My decorating style would probably best be described as clean, crisp and fun.  I don't try to take it too seriously and look for things as I go to create the most functional and comfortable space.

Project Details

Wall color is Benjamin Moore's "Robin's Nest"; Window treatment fabric is Premier Prints Chipper Slub Corn Yellow; Window cornice and curtains were made by a family friend; Baby Cache Essential Sleigh Crib from Babies R Us; Bedding is Harper Nursery Collection from Pottery Barn Kids; Avery Side Table from Pottery Barn Kids; Pineapple Lamp from HomeGoods; Lullaby Glider Rocker from Target; I painted and recovered the foot stool, which previously belonged to my grandmother; Hemnes Bookshelf from Ikea; Dresser/Changing Table gifted from a family friend, sanded, repainted and new hardware by my dad; My best DIY tip is to just have fun with the room.  Take your time to find pieces that are cohesive, but don't be afraid to mix colors and styles.

Favorite Items

My favorite items are the window treatment and the small photo collage behind the glider


I used the wall color as somewhat of a neutral.  It lends itself surprisingly well to a variety of accent colors, including pink, yellow, orange, navy and red. Don't be afraid to use different shades of your accent colors.  Not all of the yellows that I use are the same shade, and neither are the pinks.  Just have fun with it!

    love the curtains you made! I used the same fabric in my daughters Penny room. Our second daughter is Harper and was born August 29, 2011 in Charlotte too! Too funny!
