Violet’s Vibrant Nursery

Description

My goal was to have a bright and cheerful nursery for my baby girl that could easily grow with her into a big girl room.

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for this room was a duvet cover from Pottery Barn that I had in my guest room. After making the guest room into my son's nursery, I saved the duvet "just in case" I had a girl someday. I used the duvet for my window treatment and also for the seat cushion on the hope chest. I also used it for my color inspiration for the rest of the room.

Decorating Style

For this room, I wanted it to be fun and eclectic. I had a lot of fun with the fabrics, and enjoyed mixing patterns and prints. I like bold, bright colors, but I used them for the accents so it wouldn't be too overpowering.

Project Details

I did my best to stay on a tight budget and re-purposed a lot of the items in the room. The bookcase was purchased at Wal-Mart years ago and was painted all white. I painted the inside Jamaican Aqua by Benjamin Moore to make it pop for the nursery. I searched for a second hand dresser to redo for months. I finally found this one at the Habit for Humanity ReStore for $100. I was able to repaint it and give it an ombre finish. The drawer pulls are from Anthropologie. The hope chest was a gift from my godmother who found it at a garage sale. I repainted it to match the room and used my old Pottery Barn duvet cover to create a bench seat on top. The lamp and side table were from my husband's grandmother who recently passed away. I also love Audrey Hepburn so I have a few items with her mixed in. The movie poster was a gift from my husband when we were dating, and I spray painted the black frame yellow to make it match the room better. Both the crib and glider were purchased from Amazon.com. I was lucky to get the glider for under $300 on sale.

Favorite Items

The baby bedding was my one splurge, and I'm thrilled with how it came out. I was nervous designing my own bedding, but the customer service at carousel designs was fantastic, and they made sure I would be happy with the finished product. Violet loves laying in her bed and looking at the print on the inside of her bumper! I also love the collage wall above her dresser. It was a labor of love, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. The chalkboard silhouette was my first purchase, and the name Violet was even written on the picture on the website. It was meant to be!

Advice

Don't be afraid of DIY. I repainted/spray painted almost everything in the room, and it really helped to cut the costs down and make it personal. I made a design board with inspiration before I started, and that really helped to lead me in the right direction. Websites like pinterest, projectnursery, and laybabylay also helped with inspiration. Also, don't be afraid to change your mind! I ordered 3 rugs before I settled on the one in the room! Remember that your baby will be doing a lot of playing in here so give them something to look at! Violet loves looking at the collage wall while I'm changing her, and the patterns on her bedding always catch her attention.

I used fishing twine and thumb tacks. They are attached to the wall. Violet is almost two now, and they haven't moved an inch!
