Lady Baby’s Nursery


In anticipation of of little lady's arrival, we prepared a nursery that is bright, colorful and practical. The main goal was that the room could grow with our baby over the coming years. Though the furniture was a splurge (crib/dresser/chair), the accessories were all bought on a budget of less than $300.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this room came from the crib sheets (Garden Party from Pottery Barn Baby) and the need for a functional space. 

Decorating Style

I don't have a defined style but I tend to be drawn to very practical big pieces with fun accent pieces. I typically have one bright main color with lots of accent colors. 

Project Details

I found tons of cute accessories at Home Goods and on

Favorite Items

My favorite thing about this room are the framed fairy tale dresses above the crib. It adds a touch of fun and childhood nostalgia without being a themed room. 


Don't be afraid of mixing patterns. Just a pick a color palette and go with it.

Shandi - The crib and dresser are Stanley Furniture Young America brand. The dresser is from the MyHaven line with the changing table add on. The crib is the Built To Grow 2000 Slat Crib (we also bought the conversion kit to make into a full bed).


Joslin - The crib bedding came from Pottery Barn kids. The sheets are Garden Party. I am not sure what line the skirt is from. The quilt the Puzzle Patch quilt from Land of Nod.


Karri - I'll find paint details. 


Ken - The little tree came from Hobby Lobby and I absolutely agree that fruit would be adorable.

I love that tree hanger you have there.  If I were to nitpick, I'd say that the flowers should be there, instead fruits should be used for the hanger itself.  But hey, it's so cute that I am willing to accept the incongruence :)
