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.
My inspriation came from Norah's Room on apartment therapy. http://gallery.apartmenttherapy.com/photo/oh-norahs-nursery/item/87677
Cottage style/ transitional
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 overstock.com
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.
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.
