From the moment I knew I was pregnant, I had a feeling I was having a girl. When it was confirmed at 18 weeks that in fact I was having a girl, I went to town. It's funny that I am not a Pink person myself, but I just loved the look of hot pink and turquoise with gray. Slowly but surely it all came together and now Emma has a place that hopefully she will grow up in. I wanted to put together a room that wouldn't be just for her infant years, and I think (hope) I have succeeded.
Fun, Simple, DIY
The Crib is from Amazon, the glider is from Target, the dresser and book shelf are from Ikea. The knobs on the dresser are from Anthropologie. I made the curtains and pillow with fabric from Britex. The mirror and most of the picture frames are from Ikea and I just spray painted them hot pink and turquoise. The rug is from Land of Nod. I found a stencil for the elephants and used various scrap book paper to make them all different. The two prints that show California and Canada and state "Where my Roots Are" I found on Gilt. The side table I found on Overstock.com and spray painted it Hot Pink. The piggy banks a friend gave to me and she found them on Fab.com. The pouf is from Etsy from the shop aleta fae. The family avatar was designed by the incredibly talented artist and my colleague, Harry Go. harrygo.com
I love the my glider and pouf, it makes nursing very comfortable. I love the Avatars as well as they are 100% original for our family.
I used Project Nursery and Pinterist as inspiration. I took my time with it and I have changed things since Emma was born.
