Isla’s Coral and Aqua Nursery


We wanted to create a vibrant room that can grow with Isla. We selected fabrics from Carousel Designs and paired them with white furniture pieces and an ivory glider and textured rug.

Design Inspiration

Cheerfulness. We wanted to create a nursery that was crisp, clean and cheerful.

Decorating Style

We love to spend time at the beach, and our decorating style reflects our love of  coastal areas. We love soothing colors like  greens, blues, corals and grays. The same holds true in our daughter's room.

Project Details

We didn't have a huge budget for this room. The items we invested in can grow with our daughter. The textiles are from Carousel Designs. The crib is a Davinci Kalani 4-in-1, which can be transformed into a full-size headboard and footboard. The white dresser is from Vaughan Bassett, a Virginia-based furniture manufacturer. The diaper changing station is from Target, and we selected the upholstered Lily glider and ottoman in ivory from Babies R Us. The artwork was custom made for us by Durham, N.C.-based artist Nichole StudioANF. I purchased the rug for less than $100 at HomeGoods and picked up the coral and green fabric baskets at a local T.J. Maxx for just a few dollars each. The wall color is Seersucker Suit (CSP-580) in eggshell and the trim is white semigloss, both from Benjamin Moore.

Favorite Items

I love the Custom Artwork from StudioANF -- down to the little coral bows on the elephant. It truly finishes off the nursery!


Select pieces that can grow with your child. Instead of spending $400 on a nursery dresser, spend $650 on one that your child can use for years to come.

Thanks so much! We used "Seersucker Suit" (CSP-580) from Benjamin Moore in eggshell finish on the walls. The trim is white semigloss, also from Benjamin Moore.
