This project is of the nursery I designed for our first child, Letty Grace.
Most people say the nursery is really for the mom and I would have to agree! Being I'll be the one utilizing the room the most (hello late night feedings!) I wanted a space that is relaxing while still maintaining a fun environment.
From the mid-century modern dresser to the ultra traditional Jenny Lind crib, I feel this space is ECLECTIC!
I started with the thought of a black crib. That is really where it all began. I then found the Villa Romo drape fabric and from there developed the room around those two things. Other than the drape I didn't want a lot of color in the space and only used the fuchsia pink as my accent color. The walls are BM Cool Mint and remind me of green sherbet. One fun project was turning the mid-century modern dresser into a super functional changing table. I painted the shell white and left the drawers their natural brown color. New hardware and drawer liners completed the transformation!
The "L" above her crib is one of my favorite items because it was designed and hand made by my husband. Just a keep-sake from her daddy. Another element I love is a hand-written note I had framed that my husband wrote to me on my 30th Birthday when we revealed we were having a girl.
Don't stress over the small details! I didn't want everything "planned" so I left space on the bookshelves and room on walls for things I knew I would get as gifts or collect along the way. Its those special, unique pieces that really make her room complete!
