I wanted to create a warm, happy and serene nursery for my second child. My first child was a boy in which we created a more modern nursery so for my little girl I decided to go with something sweet and vintage in feel.
I found fabric for the shades and that was the jumping off point. But, I find inspiration from everywhere! Design magazines, blogs, Pinterest and Project Nursery.
I usually lean towards the traditional but I like to add hits of modern with small but integral elements like lighting.
We found a bunch of items from etsy- one of my favorite go-to sources!
sites include- LeoLittleLion, Serenstitches, ButterflyOrbs, OliveOwlArt, aletafae
Rug, Senagalese baskets and crib bedding from Serena & Lily
Clock- Land of Nod
I love the curtains since they were the jumping off point for everything. But, the rug - although maybe not the most practical in the future!- is my favorite item. My son as well as the dog love curling up on it and we spend a lot of quality family time on that thing. It's soft and lovely and it really pulled the room together.
Have fun with decorating and try not to take it too seriously. If it comes from your heart you will always love spending time in it.
