We wanted a clean aesthetic that flowed with the style of the rest of our home which has an earthy modern feel. The goal was to develop a calming space with colors and fabrics that would grow along with our little girl. We kept the walls fairly neutral and used a color palette of poppy red, coral and orchid pink to give the room some personality.

When I was a kid, I had a Merimekko comforter. When I first saw the curtain fabric, it reminded me of that Merimekko print. I loved the colors in the curtain fabric, so everything grew from there.
My style tends to be clean and modern, but I also like my spaces to be inviting, relaxing and cozy.

My favorite thing about the nursery is the fabrics. I love the combination of colors and prints.
Painting stripes on a wall is easy if you rent a self-leveling rotary level from your local tool rental. It shoots a laser all around the room so it's easy to tape off your stripes on all 4 walls. So much easier than using a hand held level, and way faster too!
We made the custom cornice for the window out of some inexpensive trim from Home Depot. For about $15 in materials, the window has a polished, finished look.
