Isla Bee’s Bright, Colorful Nursery


Isla’s room is officially my favorite room in the house! My goal was to create more than just a nursery, but a space where my daughter can grow and play for years to come.

Design Inspiration

The vintage settee has been in my family since my mom was was a child and it was the first piece of furniture I acquired so I designed the room around it. Rather than come up with a theme, I decided to go crazy with colors and prints. I really wanted Isla to be stimulated at every turn and to feel inspired by the space. I also wanted elements that can grow with her, like the beautiful rug, the settee and the prints on the wal, and I was adamant about repurposing things we already owned rather than buying new furniture.

Decorating Style

All over the place! I love mid-century modern living rooms, vintage accents and crisp, clean lines.

Favorite Items

The vintage settee is my favorite piece because my mom sat on it as a child and so did I. The gorgeous Lulu an Georgia rug is a close second.


Don't overlook furniture you already have. A coat of paint and new hardware can transform an old piece of furniture and also save money so you can splurge on other items.
