I've never liked pink that much but when I found out we were having a girl I was drawn to the very girly look. Every other room in our house is adult, I wanted her space to be feminine and scream baby.
I scoured "Rate My Space" and took inspiration from several different rooms. My husband wanted to paint the walls green and I choose the curtains and crib first and worked around that.
Crib, rug, curtains & chandelier - Pottery Barn Kids
Paint Color - Spring Cactus by Glidden
Tree Wall Decal - http://www.etsy.com/listing/61154364/birds-with-nest-in-tree-branch-vinyl
Chair - Target.com
Bookcase - Rooms to Go
Painting over bookcase - Painted by my husband's grandmother over 20 years ago, given to us when she had to leave her house and go to assisted living. I chose it with a little girls room in mind someday.
Dresser - Colorworks White Dresser with changeable color panels.
Bedding - Kate Collection by Serena & Lily
My favorite item is the crib, I always wanted the Pottery Barn white sleigh crib. I got it off Craig's List and got a steal! I also fell in love with the curtains and chose bedding around them.
Color is the most important element to me. I always want to see 3 colors but don't want them all to "match". I look for items that are all the shame shade of a color but not matchy matchy. I'm also of the belief that a kids room is a kids room and it doesn't have to match the rest of the house.
