Price’s Bright and Modern Circus Nursery


Fun and vibrant nursery designed by my mom for our son. 

Design Inspiration

We settled on a circus theme after finding some cool vintage circus themed Crazy 8 cards, which we ended up blowing up and hanging as artwork. Overall, I wanted a colorful but clean nursery that was not too "babyish." 

Decorating Style

I love clean designs with pops of color.

Project Details

Ikea: Lamp (added ribbon), Chair, Toy cubby, Toy cubby bins, Rug and Canopy fabric

CB2: Pendant ceiling lamps (added ribbon)

Babies R Us: Crib

Target: Book shelves, Storage bins on changing table shelves

HomeGoods:  Mirror and Side table

JoAnne's Fabric: Swirl wall decals

DIY projects included a lot of the artwork, fabric book hangers, drapes, bedding, fabric balls over crib, decorating of toy cubby bins, dresser refinishing, etc. 


Favorite Items

My favorite thing in the nursery is the crib area! The circus tent canopy, fabric balls and weaved ribbon on the bottom of the crib turned out exactly how I envisioned in my head. 


You don't have to spend a lot of money to get the nursery you want! The majority of the items in our nursery were purchased very reasonably at places like Ikea, Target, CB2, HomeGoods, Etsy and even a few garage sales.

    Can you tell me where you got the half circle white drawer pulls/handles from? I can’t find them anywhere in white!

  6. avatar Eve says:

    Hello. I was wondering where you got the floor lamp. IKEA doesn’t sell it. Thanks.

  7. avatar Kclawges says:

    How many yards of ribbon… about 4 for each? Also how thick is that ribbon? I’m not sure I’ve seen ribbon like that before!

    I LOVE the ribbon around the crib. I have searched high and low for a inexpensive crib skirt in our colors, but they are SO expensive. Would you mind giving a quick tutorial as to how you did this and how much ribbon you used? I hope you dont mind me using your idea. It’s brilliant! AMAZING nursery!!!

    That floor lamp came from IKEA? I have never seen it in the store and do not see it on the website, so maybe I misinterpreted your notes on the room. I would LOVE to have that floor lamp for my daughters’ room.

    I love the ribbon around the crib. So creative and unique. Can you tell me what type of ribbon you used and the width? Also where did you purchase it?

  11. avatar Emily says:


    I live in St. Louis too. I make a trip every year or so up to chicago with my sister in law, but if there’s something I want before I get up there I use this company. You pay just a little extra, but it saves you gas money!

  12. avatar Beth says:

    I LOVE the toy bins! I have not seen those at Ikea– what style bin are they and how did you decorate them?

  13. avatar Priscilla says:

    I love the tent back drop, did you make it yourself? Or was it purchased already made?

  14. avatar Abby says:

    How were you able to purchase from IKEA since you are from St. Louis? I am from St. Louis as well and have had trouble figuring out how I can buy products from IKEA. Seems like you can only buy directly from the store, but there are none located here.

    Dandelion: I’m sorry! I can’t remember what paint color this is.

    Kate: The curtains were done by my mom using some basic what fabric and adding the color blocks/stripes.

  16. The weaved ribbon on the crib is so creative!! Great job!!

  17. avatar MoniqueLee says:

    Amazing job! This looks very professional. You could charge for nursery design, based on this room.

  18. avatar Kate says:

    The curtains are beautiful. Could you tell me where you found those? They would match my son’s nursery perfectly. Thank you!

  19. avatar Kelly says:

    The most amazingly decorated nursery I have ever seen :)

  20. avatar Jessaca says:

    Love my Pricey’s room <3

  21. avatar Sara says:


    The blue stick figure print was done by my mom.

  22. avatar Dandelion says:

    I just love the colors you used for this room — the whites, grays, greens and blues. Everything looks so neat and fresh and cool. It’s a very fun and stylish nursery.

  23. avatar cassidyjd626 says:

    Love that blue stick figure print! Is it an Etsy find? I would love to know the seller! :)

  24. avatar S.Harris says:

    Great color scheme – I love the thick ribbon weave/detail on the crib – fabulous! What a neat idea!!
