Light & Airy Nursery


A sweet, simple & sophisticated nursery for our baby girl.

Design Inspiration

For our baby's nursery, I wanted something that my husband & I would enjoy just as much as our baby.  So I decorated it to my taste & kept things light, bright & airy - somewhat sophisticated but still feels like a nursery.  I also didn't want something that felt TOO girly and overly pink which is why I chose greys & yellows as small accents. 

We live in an apartment so we didn't want to paint & then have to repaint again later when we leave, but luckily the room itself is amazing & we liked the yellowish/off-white color that it already was.

Decorating Style

Contemporary wtih earthy, modern & sometimes vintage accents...a little eclectic!

Project Details

I used inspiration from all over the internet & different websites.  I also used Etsy a TON for different items in the room which I love!

The pink animal is the jellycat brand which should be easy to find if you just google it. They have adorable stuffed animals in all colors & sizes.

love your nursery! I picked out bedding I liked that was light yellow, grey and white and was feeling stuck on how to decorate the rest of the room. Yours has inspired me! Especially love those animal pictures - thanks for listing where you found them!
