Description

I wanted the room to be pretty, but playful. I knew I would be spending lots of time in the nursery, so I wanted it to be a room I would enjoy - it quickly became my favorite room in the house! There is a lot of lavender in nursery decor, but very little purple! When I found the purple sheets with the white elephants from Land of Nod I quickly grabbed them. Then the elephant theme came to life. My father-in-law and my husband painted the green stripes, which I knew I wanted from the very beginning. I found the purple ruffle curtains and various purple, green and elephant items along the way. But even with all the fun items I compiled for the room, something was needed to pull it all together. That's where Grandma came in with the gift of a custom made quilt, which incorporated both the purples and greens and completed the nursery.

Design Inspiration

My wedding colors! Purple and Green has always been a favorite color combination of mine. I knew I wanted to incorporate the invitation, ring pillows and some photos of the flowers from our wedding.

Decorating Style

I'm not really sure - I just go with what I love. Sometimes it's contemporary, sometimes it's traditional, usually it ends up somewhere in between.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is definitely the handmade quilt. The combination of true purple and green was impossible to find in store bought nursery bedding. So my mom and I picked out all the fabrics in the perfect shades of purple and green and my mom had the quilt made by etsy seller "JustACraftyMom". I love the finished product and the fact that we designed it together for my daughter makes me love it even more.

Advice

Have fun! Shop in your favorite stores - whether or not they are baby stores. Etsy can be your best friend if you have a vision and need  to get a little creative to make it come to life!
