Pink & Chocolate


I am so glad to see RH Baby & Child being used in today’s featured room. I enjoy their catalog monthly and often wonder if their classic Chocolate + (insert pale pastel color here) designs are appealing to the masses. Regardless, I appreciate RH Baby & Child’s style and balance between the classic and contemporary. Mom Kristie agrees and was inspired to create this lovely chocolate and pink palette for the nursery…

Design Inspiration

I wanted to combine contemporary with traditional elements. The main inspiration was the Napoleonic Bee bumper from RH Baby & Child in chocolate and pink. The crib, also from RH Baby & Child, is the main traditional element. I wanted the room to be feminine without being too frilly or girly and this crib seemed perfect for the space.

Decorating Style

Clean, simple.

Project Details

  • Paint is “Brown Teepee” (top) and “Belgian Sweet” (bottom) from Behr.
  • Crib, changing table and bedding from RH Baby and Child
  • Shelving unit and pink table lamp from Ikea
  • Chair and tricycle from Merry-Go-Round
  • The painting above the crib is one I did using regular wall paint and some vinyl wall decals from Dali Decals

Favorite Items

I especially love the tricycle – it’s a reproduction of an antique design. The pink is perfect and it reminds me of a classic car.
