Zoey’s Handmade Haven


my baby's den.... full of handmade and diy goodies by her mama, dadda, friends & family.

Design Inspiration

A box of charley harper memory cards. Graphic drawings, adventurous colors and best of all— it was easy on mommy's eyes! I envisioned her room to have the same feel— playful and inviting, yet sophisticated in its own inspiring way. I ended up framing some of the cards and they now find their home on top of an antique kitchen hutch that my husband and I turned into a bookshelf. I also got a lot of inspiration from other wonderful mamas and daddys and their nurseries on

Decorating Style


Project Details

Zoey's daddy installed the new flooring, crown molding, baseboards, and re-did the casing around the doorways. He also meticulously stained and re-stained, then re-stained again— the door until his wife was happy :) I made the drapes, flag banners, put together some of the wall hangings, and sewed some other goodies for the room. We are blessed by many creative friends and family that generously donated their talents—making special things—for Zoey's room. All of the furniture is either second-hand or from a flea market, garage sale, antique store or craig's list.

Favorite Items

Scower garage sales, flea markets and vintage/antique stores! Some of the most beautiful one-of-a-kind items are tucked away there. For the things that really matter to you—hold out for something you absolutely love and could stare at forever! :)

Good morning! I was wondering how the anthro rug is holding up? They have started selling it again and before making such an expensive purchase I was hoping to find out if it is worth it. Also, on their website it looks like a goldish yellow but in your picture and others I have seen it looks a little more muted. What type of yellow would you say it is? I attached my color scheme for the bedding I am making and think a yellow rug would really make it pop! Any description you can give would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Where did you the fabric for her curtains? It's just darling. I've been using the room shot as inspiration for our baby girl's nursery. It's just lovely!
