Peaceful Lilac Nursery


I wanted to create a serene and feminine nursery for our little girl using  lilac, white, and gray.  There are elements of old and new along with homemade art and finishes. 


Design Inspiration

I knew I wanted to use lilac and when I saw the fabric at Serena and Lily, I decided to go vintage/romantic.  We borrowed many ideas from Project Nursery and Restoration Hardware.

Decorating Style

Eclectic- I love pretty things!

Project Details

*monogram over crib and crib bumpers were added later

Bedding- Serena and Lily Delphine fabric. My mother and I made the crib bumpers and bought coordinating Florentine crib sheets.  We also had a window cornice and pillow made from the Delphine fabric.

Crib- Stanley Young America Grow with Me- not perfect, but it was a deal at a local furniture store going out of business.

Dresser- antique

chaise- reupholstered an old green one we got when we first got married with a silvery chenille fabric.

mirrors- used old and new mirrors (or picture frames) from different stores and painted them silver.

Artwork- My mom painted the monogram and the peacocks.

Chandelier- gift- homemade silk cord cover.


Favorite Items

The dresser and window treatment...perfectly girly!

Thanks! My mom painted those pictures- yes, they are peacocks.

I like the soft and subtle colors. I also like that frame with plant pots (what's it called?) and I am curious about those two artworks on the other side of the window. Do you have a closer shot? Are those peacocks?

I'm not sure- but it's pretty close to Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige.

White, gray and lilac look so gorgeous together. The nursery is about simple elegance, or perhaps elegant simplicity.
