Lucy’s Functional and Bright Nursery


A modern, bright, clean and functional nursery that needs to occasionally double as a guest room.

Design Inspiration

The little cat next to the lamp was my inspiration. I found it at a local artisans fair and loved the color and feel of it.

Decorating Style

Our style is more contemporary. We used white and gray as base colors and mostly clean lines. 

The nursery will also double as a guest room and we wanted our baby to be able to grow in it.  So we got functional furniture that would work years down the road.  

Project Details

Changing Station/Dresser – custom made and the knobs are from Anthropologie

Rocker – had it made at a local furniture store

The butterfly mobile, dolls and prints were all Etsy finds
