I started this nursery thinking I wanted a little girls room...but not too girly. Well, it ended up being much more girly than anticipated, but I love it! It's not fully finished. The frames on the wall will eventually have pictures in it and the shelves will be a lot fuller...with photos in all the frames as well.
The flowers on the bedding was the inspiration for the room.
I love color. I think it brightens any home and can really show off your personality. Plus, it's the easiest and cheapest way to transform a home.

I think my favorite things in the room are the stencils, the tree and, oddly enough, the owl nightlight (I just love it!). The mobile I worked very had on and it took me forever to do, so I'm also very partial to it! And the glider is heaven to sit in.
This room is very small, so I wanted to keep to a few colors. In the bedding there is brown, red, yellow and pink. I chose yellow for the walls because it makes me happy. Brown was only used in the furniture. White was used for the frames and shelves because it's the color of the molding and doors. Pink is the main color that was used by me to decorate because #1 it's easy to find for decorating girls rooms and #2 red was too overpowering. Red was just the accent color used for some pops of color. Basically, my best advice it to follow your gut and take your time. Not only did I change my mind a million times on things, but also, decorating a nursery is expensive. It's a lot easier to handle financially when buying a few items at a time instead of the whole room at once!
