Early in my pregnancy, I somehow knew we were having a girl. I could only envision a darling little baby girl nursery! We wanted to create a peaceful and elegant atmosphere, with a few nature-inspired elements.
We'd been using the room as a guest room, and ultimately decided we could still use the nursery as dual purpose. I wanted to make sure it could fulfill both needs and still be coordinated well.
The first outfit I bought for her was a sweet little pink and gray set. I didn't realize how much I loved the combo until then, which inspired me to use those colors for her nursery.
I wanted to keep her nursery simple and contemporary. I tend to over clutter a space, so I'm making a conscious effort to be a little more minimalistic. I wanted to create a more peaceful environment.

Sheer window curtains and flower hold-backs came from Burlington Coat Factory.
Frames are from IKEA. I've filled some with scrapbook paper for now, and eventually plan to use for newborn or maternity shots. Kind of like the color that's added with the scrapbook paper, though!
I love the chandelier, which casts a beautiful pattern on the wall.
