Shared Girl Nursery


We had a big surprise finding out that we were pregnant again shortly after giving birth to our first daughter.  We were team Green with our first child and so she had a very nuetral nursery, but after finding out we were expecting again, we wanted to find out the gender so we could plan the new nursery.  Once we found out it was another girl, I was thrilled to move the nursery into a bigger room and make it as girly as possible.

Design Inspiration

Pink!  I wanted pink to be the main color, but after some thought, I decided to do a nuetral wall color (gray) and then have pink accents everywhere.  Overall, I am glad I didn't choose pink walls as well, as that may have been an overload.

Decorating Style

Not quite sure, I wanted it to be more patterns and shapes as opposed to my daughter's original nuetral nursery of animals/jungle.  This time I wanted something the two girls could grow with a bit.

Favorite Items

The pink shelf & antique bookcase.  Also the fabric I used to make the bumper pads, window valances and toss pillows.  I also loved the fact that we reused old furniture and painted them the colors we wanted.  The only items that are new that we did not alter were the cribs, the comforters and the rugs.  Aside from that, everything else has Mommy or Daddy's touch to it!


Look for stuff you already have to repurpose and look for fabrics that you love and can incorporate into the room; those were the things that helped to decipher what direction we went in with our nursery.

love the pops of pink, the piece of furniture between the cribs is my favorite and I really like the names above the cribs.

When it comes to rooms for girls, one can never go wrong with pink. It's such a sweet, pretty and feminine color. The paper lantern mobile is really cute and lovely.
