We wanted to create a classic nursery that also had a contemporary feel, and it had to be fit for a princess! We knew we wanted lavender to be a main color and decided on a soothing grey for our second color of choice. Of course every girl also needs a few pops of pink in her space! We think this is a room that can grow with our daughter.
The chandelier and the bedding were the first pieces that we purchased and then we worked around them.
Traditional, yet modern and-girly!

Don't go to one store and purchase everything from there, shop around! It is easier to create a cohesive look pulling together pieces from different stores, handmade by loved ones, than you might think. To go along with that, don't get hung up on everything being too matchy matchy. That is always my inclination when decorating and I have to remind myself having everything in the same exact shades is nearly impossible to do, and would be more boring in the final result anyway. Our walls are different shades from the curtains, from the bedding, from the accessories in the room, etc.
Don't forget to have great room darkening curtains in your nursery. I'm a firm believer that they help our little girl sleep like a little angel.
