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.
