Violet’s Nursery


Eclectic and modern nursery that is fun and functional! Great color palette for boy or girl.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a gender neutral nursery that was eclectic and not your typical baby room.  I wanted it to be soothing and sophisticated.

Decorating Style

Mix of old and new!

Project Details

I love to search antique stores for items that can be spruced up.  I love a good deal and believe good design doesn't have to cost a lot.  For my curtains, they are linen drapes from bed bath and beyond. I added the pom pom trim myself with a hot glue gun.  The armoire was from an antique store that I painted white.

Favorite Items

My favorite item is the armoire. It was only $175!


Do your research! I searched for the perfect upholstered glider that wasn't going to cost me $1,000 or take 10 weeks to get delivered. I called Restoration Hardware outlet, and picked it up that day for $580. Big score!!

    I got the rug from Target $60. The paint color is Robin’s Nest from Benjamin Moore. It’s also a No VOC paint! Thanks for the comments. I just got my crib and will post it when it’s put together.

    This nursery looks so clean and fresh and very calm. And I love that it looks simple and modern, nothing too ornate.  And you have quite a unique changing area. Love that you made good use of that wall feature!
