Lila’s Lilac Nursery!


A serene, fresh, and feminine nursery for our baby girl!

Design Inspiration

I had originally wanted to do bold hot pink colors, but once we chose the name Lila I realized we had to do purple! The name has several meanings in different languages, including "purple" or "lilac".  From there, I decided I wanted to do something crisp, fresh, and feminine, so I stuck to lilac, white, and silver-gray, with a flower, bird and butterfly theme.

Decorating Style

I tend to like eclectic/exotic with lots of color. But I ended up with a different style for the nursery! I think it has more of a soft, feminine and organic feel.

Project Details

I don't really have a lot of DIY skills, but I put my husband and myself to the test by doing lots of DIY projects! We refinished the dressers--they were mine growing up. That took a lot of work.  I somehow managed to create the LILA wall hanging myself, as well as the silver pillow with the lilac flower. I also redid the trim on the lamp--it used to be gold. 

Favorite Items

It's hard to choose. I like that we were able to use my childhood dressers. I also love the tree decal.


Let yourself be inspired by something and then go with it!

Do you have links for the bedding and wall decals? and what paint color did you choose. Have been looking for something exactly like this!

Looks great! I was wondering if you could tell me what paint color you used for the walls and dressers. Thanks
