Maria's nursery was truly a labor of love for me. Almost everything in the nursery is homemade. I had a list of things I wanted for the room and soon realized that I wanted to do most of them myself.


Design Inspiration

I wanted a soft palette of gray, coral and yellow with some pops of color. I knew the book wall would bring in lots of pops of color.

    I sure would love to kidnap you and have you handmade things for me :) These pieces are lovely and the nursery is beautiful. I was wondering though why there seems to be not much black here. I was looking for something that would starkly contrast the light and white paint. Nevertheless this is an amazing labor of love!
