Irys’s Glitz and Glam Nursery


When I found out I was pregnant and was having a girl, I was so excited and had so many ideas running through my head. Initially I wanted her room to be shades of purple like the color of the Iris flower, but as I looked around I started to lean more towards Aqua and Vintage Silver, and my husband wanted Fuchsia, which later turn to Hot Pink. These colors became the new colors for decorating our beautiful flower room. We went with the theme Glitz and Glam taking into consideration her room is small, we made sure to be careful with the amount of furniture we placed in her nursery. Therefore we purchased a crib and dresser/changing table combo set to prevent the room from being cluttered. The organizer was a gift from our baby shower and it was just the right size and it’s very beneficial. My husband and I did a lot of team work in completing this project along with other family members and friends. Neither one of us wanted the typical princess theme but as we started decorating the room, the more it started to look like a room fit for a princess without it being the theme.  How ironic?!

Design Inspiration

I was inspired by viewing the rooms on project nursery, pinterest, google, and my own abstract ideas.

Favorite Items

I love everything in the room but choosing one, I would have to say her name canvas. I love the uniqueness of how the iris flower has her name (Irys) coming out of it


My advice would be design your baby’s room from the heart. Incorporate something significant, personal, and meaningful. Two things I did was incorporate our spiritual belief, and placed a sentimental item such as my lullaby teddy bear from when I was born alongside her recorded heart beat teddy bear. DIY projects also allows you the opportunity to include significant items without spending an arm and leg. Lastly have fun. Decorating your baby room can be a stress reliever and help time pass as you wait for your precious little one to arrive.

Live, Laugh, Love, and SMILE!!
