Design Inspiration

The inspiration for the project came from our favorite colors.  Mommy's is pink and daddy's is gray.  We wanted something very feminine, but didn't scream baby. We also wanted something fresh yet clean to match with the white furniture.  I chose a damask pink fabric and sewed everything in the room except for the baby bumper.   

Project Details

Baby Maya's room was a true labor of love! I sewed her bedskirt to match the curtains and throw pillows and I covered both lamp shades with the same gray pinstripe fabric and coordinated it with pink grosgrain ribbon.  I used the left over fabric for more throw pillows and covered 2 canvas boards and adhered pink felt flowers to it.  I also made and painted her growth chart from a piece of wood and used more left over ribbon.  I saw cute closet dividers online and because they were a little pricey, I recreated some to match her closet.  The butterfly mobile was something I also saw online and recreated it using white cardstock and fishing line.  We bought the crib and changing table from a friend and painted it white with pink shimmer from Martha Stewart paints. The side dresser was a goodwill find for $4.00 and the same paints were used from the crib and changing table. The bumper was purchased from Babies'R us.     

Favorite Items

My favorite item in the room is the glider. It was a craigslist find that was lightly used, so I washed all the cushions and it's as if it was brand new!  It's so comfy and very relaxing to rock back and forth, we can't wait to hold baby Maya in it!    


My advise would be if you want to save money, think outside the box.  There are many unique and creative resources online to find inspiration and if you're up for the challenge, it can be fun and rewarding!

    Awww. such a pretty charming room. I am not a fan of pink, but I really love this exact shade you used because it’s the softest one of all pinks. And the way you put everything together made it look really classy.

    Thanks so much! I took a butterfly image as a template and cute large and small butterflies. I pierced a small hole in the center and tied on both ends. I continued until I got my length. For the top, I painted a wooded hoop with Martha Stewart glitter paint in pink.

    Was the grey wall an accent wall? Or did you paint the wall across from it grey as well? Thanks!
