Modern Whimsical Nursery for Baby Girl


We moved into our new house about a year and a half ago and left this room untouched, assuming it would eventually be for baby #2.

So as soon as I found out we were having a girl (our first is a boy), I immediately got to work brainstorming up a space that would be fun, imaginative, and a little bit girly — but could still grow with her throughout the years.

I repainted the grey walls a pale pink (Behr “Illuminated”), and since I’m averse to too much color, I wanted everything else in the room to feel neutral, light and airy — so I stuck to a palette of whites and creams and added texture with pillows, blankets, and acrylic pieces.

In terms of statement pieces, I installed a beautiful chandelier from Serena & Lily and chose an acrylic dollhouse floor bookcase, which not only holds a bunch of books and toys, but can also be used as an actual dollhouse when she gets older.

The result is a soft, feminine nursery that's still modern and fits nicely with the rest of our home. I absolutely love it.
