Soft, Sweet, & Soothing Nursery


Soft and sweet with simple elegance for our darling little girl.

Design Inspiration

I was inspired to design a nursery that would be a soothing and tranquil place for our little girl to love to be in.  Girly & chic w/o over using the color pink.

Decorating Style

southern grace, shabby chic, & clean, simple elegance.

Project Details

I have expensive taste and do a lot of research and shopping around to find the best deals w/o skimping on quality.  I gathered many many many ideas on furniture, paint, and decor before purchasing one item.  Once decided ..we started w/ the walls - choosing colors that would create the softness of the room I wanted.   I decided on one accent wall in the color of "pitter patter" the wonderful robin egg blue color on the main wall.  The other 3 walls we used a soft white called "pearls & lace" .  I searched for a crib that could transition into a toddler bed and then finally a full size bed.  We found the perfect one on a popular baby boutique website BUT found the same crib on which was lower in price, tax free, & (best of all) free shipping! We decided against a changing table and chose a dresser that we could use as a changing table ...we went w/ Ikea's Hemnes dresser and bookshelf in brown-gray.  I purchased crystal knobs to replace the ones that came w/ the dresser for an inexpensive update.  The crib bedding came from Pottery Barn.  The wall decor & drapes came from independent sellers on Etsy - LOVE that site!  I bought a full crystal chandelier from Gallery Lighting online for under $100 :)  Another inexpensive update that we did was changing out all the light and outlet plates...what a difference that made such a sweet impact.  I'm happy to share specifics on anything you see that you would like to know where it came from - just let me know.

Favorite Items

I love the chandelier and drapes but my favorite piece is the large frame w/ the letter L done in wall flowers.   It just pops on the accent wall and is the focal point of the room.


I planned out every detail ...big & small.  Every decision was thoughtfully considered.  I made a plan of action early in my pregnancy so I would not feel rushed and I spaced out all the big purchases.  I created an inspiration board before making any changes to the room and I used that as my "road map" to build the look I was after.  Be patient...and work confidently.  It's a labor of love!

I love, love, love the frames with the lyrics from I hope you dance. Where did you find them?

That chandelier is simply gorgeous! And the colors you used for this room make it look fresh, light, and breezy. Overall the nursery is sweet and lovely.
