I wanted to create a warm and inviting room for Katelyn that would fit each stage of her growing up, from infant to child. It brings me such joy spending time in here with my baby girl!
The walls of my house are painted in natural colors, so I wanted to pick a color that would be fit for a nursery and still flow with the rest of the house. After researching many different nursery ideas online, I found I was drawn to the grey, pink, and white combination (with a few other accent colors). I like that the room has an eclectic, vintage, "shabby-chic" feel. Once I settled on a color, I built everything around that.
Interior design has always been an interest of mine, and I find that I am drawn more to an eclectic, vintage style rather than to one overall-themed room. When evaluating a piece, I don't necessarily match everything together. Pieces that you love will often just "work" with each other.

I would have to say my favorite item in the nursery is her dresser. I like that it is unique and not something you would see in your run-of-the-mill furniture store.
When decorating, trust your instincts. Find items you love and are drawn to, and you can't go wrong!
