Kira Rose’s Nursery


I wanted to capture my favorite Washington DC area experience...Cherry Blossom season. For just ten days out of the year, our neighborhood and surrounding areas explode with white and pink blossoms.

Design Inspiration

When Kira's birthmom picked us to be her adoptive parents, it was March 17 and my street was in full bloom with cherry blossoms. I took a walk and took the moment in fully. One lesson I would like my children to learn from me is to be "present" in the moment and experience beauty and joy even if you know it will be fleeting. For in the moment, there is much joy to feel. That's the moment I wanted to capture in Kira's nursery.

Decorating Style

Sophisticated, creative, nature-inspired.

Project Details

The first thing I fell in love with was a fabric called "White Pagoda" from The pale blue pagodas and the pink cherry blossoms on white background just drew me in. Slightly asian inspired, but very feminine. I purchased window valances and a pillow for the rocking chair in this fabric. The curtain rodsĀ Ā and rug were from Restoration Hardware Nursery The wall decal is from Surface Inspired, a company found through I hired Margaret Carter from to consult on the closet design and room colors. White leaning bookshelf from We purchased the crib and dresserĀ (Munire in Expresso) and white rocking chairĀ from The flower petal stool was purchased fromĀ  And last but no least, the pink light fixture is from

The wall colors are Benjamin Moore. Spring violet and brookside moss on the walls and Peach Passion for the closet wall.

Favorite Items

The wall decal is my absolute favorite detail in the room. My four year old son Ryan helped me pick where each blossom should go. There's also a birdhouse made from a vintage book (to kill a mockingbird) that sits on the white bookshelf. Great book and adorable decor to boot!


Be willing to take risks. Don't be afraid of color! Buy only what you really love, not just items that will "do for now."
