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!

    Thanks Carla_Sol and Dandelion! I got the tree decal from I think the vendor was called styleywalls. She sent me color samples so I was able to make sure they’d work in the room. I also got one of the throw pillows from etsy (the one with the lilac flower I made myself). The chandelier is from pottery barn kids and the bedding is from Target.

    Webgirl10, there are a lot of things here that I love.  I think it’s great that you were able to pass something of your own into your child’s nursery, that’s special.  I love that chandelier and those throw pillows, and that lamp, and that bedding.  Oh my, if I could go there and hijack this whole room, that would be perfect!  Where did you buy all these???

    I love the colors! Where did you find the cherry blossom tree decal? I’ve been looking for one like it for a while now.

    Thanks for the instructions and the close up picture. I’m not very crafty, but I think I’ll be able to handle this.

    Thanks! I actually just uploaded a new closer, detail  image of the letters–I think they’re hard to see in the other pic. For the gray squares, I found these small canvas frames at a local art/craft supply store. They were only about $4 each. I attached fabric to each one by folding the excess in the back and stapling it. For the purple squares, I found similar smaller, flat canvasses at the same store that were the size I wanted. But you could probably also just use any kind of square cardboard. I painted them with purple paint, and attached them to the gray squares w/double sided tape. Then I just attached vinyl letters, which you can get at most craft stores or online. I hand sewed the purple flower appliques onto the gray fabric, which was a pain. I’ve since learned the magic of the hot glue gun! That would have been so much easier and faster– I definitely recommend a glue gun for appliques! The white flowers were just decoration from my shower that I placed on top. Good luck with your project–I hope that’s helpful!

    Can you tell me how you did the name wall hanging? I absolutely love it and have a similar theme for my daughter’s nursery.

    Thanks! Wow! Another Lila in March!!! 

  24. avatar LilahsMom says:

    I love it!  I am due March 30th with my second little girl and I am naming her Lilah :)  I am also doing a lilac nursery as well!  I love everything that you did!!!

  25. avatar webgirl10 says:

    Thanks! I actually was a little worried about the bedding and tree being a little too match-y, so I’m glad you liked it!

    I love the purple cherry blossom tree decal you have, it matches your bedding and it’s very unique, considering that most cherry blossom scenes are rendered in pink.  I know that you wanted hot pink, but I think this room came out very lovely as it is.
