I wanted a calm and sweet nursery for our first baby. We painted the walls a pale gray and added neutral details with a few pops of color. The furniture is a combination of new and vintage, mixed with some DIY projects. We did a lot of work ourselves, adding crown molding, a Dutch door and wall stencil and shelving in the closet. The room is small, so we maximized space by using a compact dresser as a changing table, removing the closet doors to make it feel bigger, and placing a round crib in the corner. A chandelier and closet lights helped brighten the room.

Design Inspiration

I was mostly inspired by bright, airy nurseries, and added some colored pieces at my husband's urging. Lots of Pintrest and Google searches!

Favorite Items

I love everything, but the round crib is my favorite. We found it vintage, cut down the poles, painted it, and added some custom bedding. It turned out lovely!


Do lots of shopping at thrift stores to find the right pieces, and don't be afraid to use paint to make everything match.

    So soft and serene! Love the aqua that you painted the changing dresser. Could you please tell me the color? I also like the touches of pink that make it girly.

    Hi! The sea grass baskets came from World Market and the bar with hooks they are hanging from came from Ikea. The mobile was a DIY project, made with felt and styrofoam balls.

    Love this nursery! I found the baskets on World Market’s website. Do you remember if they are small, medium, or large? Also, do you know what the bar and hooks are called? I’m trying to search ikea.com but haven’t been succesful so far. Thanks!

    Stephanie we got the bar and hooks today. They were in the kitchen section and called a Grundtal Rail in 31 inches. The hooks are the 2 3/4 Grundtal S hooks. Hope this helps!

    I love your bookshelf wall… So the 2 white bookshelves are from Ikea? Where are the brown hanging baskets underneath the shelves from? (the ones holding the toys)

    Sarah, the rod and hooks for the baskets under the bookshelf came from IKEA. The baskets came from World Market. The white wall baskets beside the changing table came from Land of Nod.

    Hi there! Where did you get the tall floor lamp from? I love it and think it would be perfect for our baby girl’s nursery!
