Pink and brown meet for a very girly nursery with Eiffel Tower accents!
My husband and I got engaged at the Eiffel Tower. We had so much Paris memorabilia that I wanted to use it somehow. When I found out I was pregnant with a girl, I knew that I wanted to use that theme in her nursery.
I like modern but I live in a house that is 100 years old so I would say that I am traditional, yet contemporary.
The Lydia wall plaques were made by Lydia's aunt. She bought 6 x 6 canvases and painted them, then attached a brown ribbon. My husband painted the Eiffel Tower on the wall by using the fabric from her roman shades and quilt. Her rocker was made by Best Chairs in the Storytime Series. I love how soft the microsuede is! www.besthf.com Her fabric was the inspiration for the room. I found the Eiffel Tower pattern on www.michaelmillerfabrics.com and then found other fabrics to match. The wide striped fabric reminded me of the fabric canopies on the sidewalk cafes of Paris. The flowers and the large vase came from Hobby Lobby. Also the large Eiffel Tower on the floor was from there. www.hobbylobby.com. The pictures over her changing table were photos that I took while in Paris. Her crib is from Munire furniture. www.munirefurniture.com. The Eiffel Tower lamps and all her rugs were from www.target.com. All fabrics and bedding were sewn by Lydia's grandmother! I bought a lamp shade that you can cover with your own fabric and coordinated it to the room. Then I added the adorable little dangling balls! The matching shades on the chandelier were bought off www.ebay.com. How lucky was I to find some in the same fabric that I decorated the room!!
The hand painted Eiffel Tower on the wall that my husband painted. The totally comfortable rocker. The Eiffel Tower Roman shades sewn by her grandmother.
If you find something that inspires you (like I did a single fabric) go with it and make it your inspiration!
