Modern Garden Nursery


A garden nursery for my first! I'm an addicted DIY'r and managed to save a lot of money as well as create some unique looks for my baby girl's room.

Design Inspiration

I knew I wanted her room to be very girly, but not TOO baby-ish. I started to think about things that were girly but not too overdone for babies- then I thought of my Mom. My Mom has an amazing garden that she works on and adds to every year, and all the flower ideas came flowing out!

Decorating Style

Modern and clean.

Favorite Items

Probably the Butterfly Mobile just because of how much time went into it and how happy I am with how it came out! But I'm also partial to the Scruffle Bunny I got from Anthropologie that resides on the recliner =)


Start working in advance- this took a ton of time, and most of these projects I wouldn't have the patience for in my 3rd trimester.

Thanks! I've had them for years and never had the right use for them- I was so happy to finally use them!

Yeah, I think so too! They're kinda whimsical. I think their effect would have been more dramatic if they were the only ones on the wall, and there wasn't any shelf above it or sign below it, and so much more if the wall was lighter and the flowers would really pop out.
