Mom Brooke developed her own mantra while designing her baby’s nursery – the 3 C’s: Clean, Calm and Comfortable. We like to refer to this nursery design as Chic, Clutter-free and the best C of them all, Cost-Effective. Our favorite element? The cabinets that flank the sides of the crib. Now that’s Clever design!
Theme: Elephants! I was inspired by a number of blogs I visited. I took a few ideas from these blogs and then incorporated my own style and look. I tried to keep it minimal and whimsical.
Clean and contemporary with touch of traditional.
Color of walls is a soft ecru. White, grey, avocado green and shades of blue were my color pallette. Changing table is a from family that we had painted. Art, mobile and banner were all found on Etsy. Bedding is from Serena and Lily. Monogrammed Sham is Leontine Linens. Rug came from FLOR.
I love the monogrammed boudior because it adds such a personal touch. The elephant rocker “Elmer” is adorable. The tall cabinets are either side of the crib make the room. I also love the mobile because it is so delicate. The rug was a nice way to soften the room and make it cozy and I love how I could chose the exact dimensions I needed. The bassinet holding the stuff animals has been in my husbands family for three generations so it adds another personal touch to the room.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on a nursery. The crib and rocking chair were both under 200.00. Adding a few nice pieces will elevate the look. And don’t feel like every spot in the room must be decorated. Calm, clean and comfortable are three words I kept repeating to myself during this process.
