Sophie’s Whimsical Nursery


I wanted a nursery that was pretty and comfortable but did not have any particular theme. The walls are a pretty shade of blue with pink accents for pop.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration was to make the nursery sweet and feminine but not over the top. I love the light blue walls with the dark brown rocking chair. I tried to add furniture and accessories that would complement those colors. The baby furniture is all white and I thought the pink accents added a subtle feminine feeling to the nursery.

Decorating Style

Whimsical, simple

The branch decal over the crib is from Dali Decals.  The paper flower wall decor is from Etsy.  The 'Garden Friends' baby mobile can be found at Creative Home Accents.  The decorative pillows were purchased at Restoration Hardware 'baby & child'.

Favorite Items

I love the branch decal over the crib as well as the brown, pink and white polka dot rug.


Pick two items as a source for inspiration either in color or theme and then build around it.

I love the rug. When did you buy it? I couldn't find it off of pottery barn. Great nursery.

I love the cool colors used in your nursery! What paint color did you use? The decal over the crib is also a great idea. The paper flowers are great.
