I wanted to create a bright and happy nursery for my daughter. After designing my wedding I was inspired by the colors coral and teal and decided to add yellow for a fresh feel.
I love coastal elements and color. I wanted to bring these ideas together to create a fun and bright environment.
I love the ocean and coastal design. My style ranges from soft muted ocean colors to bright and fun bold colors depending on the room.
I mixed a lot of items from Etsy, large retailers (Pottery Barn Kids, Land of Nod, Michaels) and also added my own DIY items and personal touches to things. I am an artist so I created the main artwork for the nursery wall (www.mccarrierart.com). Now available as a print! Please contact me if you are interested in replicating the art or a custom nursery piece, I would be happy to help!([email protected]) I bought white plank frames from Michaels and painted them in yellow stripes to match the rest of the room. I also painted the wooden letters to match the color scheme. The main bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids, but the quilt was bought from Shilohmae on Etsy to bring in the pop of coral. I had the starfish sign custom color matched on Etsy from JustBeachyShop. The wooden whale above the sofa was unfinished and I custom painted it.
My favorite items in the nursery are probably all the wall decor. I love the starfish sign, the whale and how the art really made the room come together.
Etsy is a great resource when you are looking for one of a kind items, or want something special. Most vendors will work with you to create custom colors or lettering. I found that finding some things from big retailers and combining them with custom, hand made items made the room feel unique.
