Olivia's Shabby Chic Nursery!

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for the nursery really stemmed from the borghese furniture.  Once I purchased the furniture, my ideas for the nursery started flowing! I really wanted to do a nursery that was contemporary and chic at the same time and I didn't want the nursery to be so "babyish."  I am in love with grays, whites, and cream right now and so I knew I wanted to incorporate these colors in Olivia's nursery.

Decorating Style

contemporary and eclectic

Project Details

One of my favorite things about this nursery is the design wall. The damask design on the wall is custom painted by Cathy's Custom Painting. Cathy did a phenomenal job in only 3 days! I purchased the crib and dresser with hutch ( both by Pali ) from Cribs to College in Naperville. I love that the hutch can be removed and transformed into a bookcase. I originally found the borghese furniture at zgallerie and then happened to find the exact same dresser and nightstand at Home Goods... for much cheaper! The bows on the crib are hand made by grandma. I found the curtains at Bed Bath & Beyond. The chandelier is the Mia chandelier from Potterybarn kids. The rug is an eco friendly rug made out of recycled t-shirts found at http://www.goshopus.com/gsu_product_~s-4'7%2Bx%2B7'7~c-PINK~p-20.JS41.htm. The glider and ottoman ( not pictured ) were purchased at BuyBuy Baby. The shelf with 3 hooks on the wall was purchased at Hobby Lobby.

    I love your pink bows on the crib. Did you make these or did you purchase them some where? If you purchased them, can you please share with me where you purchased them? What are they called as well-crib bows?

    Thank you

    Hi Abby,

    I did have the bows made. Grandma is a seamstress so she whipped these up in minutes and then we added a little flower in the middle. I just made sure that the fabric for the bows matched the curtains to tie it all in together.

    Good luck!

    I absolutely love the accent wall. I was hoping to do something similar. What did you do for bedding? Is it just s simple pink?
