Madelyn’s Nursery


I was looking to create a calming nursery that was girly but not in the traditional sense.  As much fun as pink can be, I really wanted a room that was inspired by the outdoors.

This room is very small ( 8x9 ) so I had to find furniture that wouldn't overwhelm the room.  The cib is actually a mini-crib.

Design Inspiration

My inspriation came from Norah's Room on apartment therapy.


Decorating Style

Cottage style/ transitional

Project Details

Paint color is Benjamin Moore- Robin's Nest

The mobile, the bunting and the pillow were handmade.

The rocking chair is from Meijer

The bedding was from target ( before I knew the sex of the baby)

I spray painted the bird houses on the wall ( they were only $1.00 from the craft store)

The crib is the Anabelle mini crib.

The rug is from

The shelving is from Ikea

The changing table came from Babies R Us.

The tree decal was a zulily score however you can find it on the internet from different decal websites.

Favorite Items

My favorite part of the nursery is the color palette- It feels sunny and cheerful- even on a gloomy day in January.


I start a new room by scouring the internet for ideas, then I put them them all together in photoshop before I start shopping for similar items.

You don't have to come up with something that's never been done- it's just important that you love the final product.

    I love the soft greens, the soft blues and the soft yellows in your entire color scheme. The rooms feels so light and positive.

  11. Beautiful room! I think that we have the same caged-birdies (one of the last pictures) in our girls’ room! My great-grandmother (who passed away when I was 20 and she was 96!) had a singing caged-bird that I so loved all through my childhood. I found a pretty good replica (I think the same one as shown here) and gave them to my girls for Christmas one year!! So love it!!

    Love the colors you used. They’re very cool and fresh to the eyes, and very soothing too. And that bedding is a keeper!
