Iris’s Aqua, Coral & Yellow Pretty Boho Nursery


A bright, colorful and eclectic boho nursery for my sweet baby girl, Iris.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration was to make a colorful, happy, bohemian nursery with a few neutrals mixed in.  I included lots of patterns including ikats, chevrons, and indian block print.  I tried to imagine if I was a little girl, what kind of room I would find fun and I hope my daughter enjoys it as much as her mama.

Decorating Style

Eclectic bohemian with touches of california, vintage, and Indian.

Favorite Items

I think my favorite items in the room are the mobile and the bedding, although the room is so special because each piece brings something to the whole eclectic look.  The bedding is what I bought first after looking for bedding that had a bohemian and global feel in bright happy colors that was suitable for a little girl.  The mobile adds such a playful element to the room, and Iris loves to look up at it.  It was easy to make - just wrapped embroidery thread around embroidery hoops, made the tassels, cut and sewed the elephants from a pattern I made, and strung it all together.  I added the top crown at the end and I think it almost makes it look like a carousel.  So fun and whimsical!


Don't be afraid to mix different design elements together!  I think the rooms that are more fun for both adults and kids are the ones that have lots of fun patterns, textures and styles to keep your eyes bouncing from corner to corner!
