We were looking for a boho vintage but also a modern take on a floral/daisy nursery. I think we nailed it on this one. Every aspect of our daughters nursery is bright and fun but also warm and welcoming!
As soon as I started thinking about my nursery, I knew that I’d want a natural, warm & earthy colour palette (which has to include some of my favourite colour, Mustard!) in a modern boho style, with a hint of a desert theme. We found out we were having another baby girl, so I wanted to incorporate a hint of dusty rose colour through the room also. I love the softness of rainbow/arch shapes, so you’ll see I’ve incorporated hints of this shape throughout. I also knew I needed to include special pieces from one of my favourite brands, Boho Baby Heaven; a very small family business, run by a mother-daughter duo based in Hungary. Mariann & Inez specialize in bohemian style home/nursery decor & toys, all made completely by hand. I shared my ideas about the theme of the nursery them, and I knew they would create the perfect pieces to suit. They exceeded my expectations. These pieces are all so special to me, they evoke such joy & have tied together my nursery space so perfectly. Inez did a guest blog post previously featuring the creative & design process of these pieces. I’ve tried to keep a repetition of elements throughout this room; using light wood & natural elements such as rattan & cane, with the warm earthy colours, and pops of mustard & dusty rose. Before Maisie arrived, I would spent quiet moments in here sitting in the papasan chair whilst sipping on a tea. The golden afternoon sun diffusing softly through the curtains; to me, the room feels warm, happy & completely calm. It’s my little nursery oasis! Our two cats seem to agree as I catch them both sleeping happily in here every day.
Ever since my nana passed, whenever we see a monarch, we say “there’s nana!” I swear whenever I see one, she slows down to say hi and then flies off. As soon as we found out we were having a little girl, I knew I wanted to incorporate butterflies into her nursery to have her great nana with her.
I knew I really wanted a beautiful wallpaper landscape of a mountain scene as we spent our honeymoon out west and loved the calming feeling and sense of bliss that the vast mountains gave us. Was very tranquil and peaceful. I also knew wanted some natural wood accents and a crib to compliment that wallpaper along with a beautiful name sign from Timberwood Designs!
I wanted a nursery that felt traditional & vintage— something he could grow into when he’s older. A room where I felt comfortable and at peace, this nursery reflects my favorite colors & things I’ve collected over the years for my boys, as well as coordinating with the rest of our home.
Our garden inspired us! The room we chose for our baby girl’s nursery faces our back yard and our raised beds. The room also gets beautiful sunshine in the morning, making it a very peaceful space – just like our garden. I wanted to pull in floral/botanical accents, which is why we chose an accent floral wall paper with greens, yellow, and blush/peach colors. The rest of the room is finished in a green grass cloth wallpaper to add texture and to ground the room. I selected gold accents for framed prints and our window treatment to warm up the room and give it a sophisticated feel. We also incorporated woven textured accents around the room to warm it up, such as baskets to hide toys, diapers, and burb cloths. I wanted the nursery to feel personal and the details to feel special, so it was important to me that we collected the items on the shelves over time instead of just one big shopping haul at Target. I found some beautiful wooden toys including one personalized in her name, the books and stuffed animals were gifts or handed down from family, and I purchased the sun hat and wicker doll purse for when she is a bit older. We included some framed photos of a maternity session we did at the beach a few weeks ago.
I hope you enjoy and are inspired by our daughter’s nursery!
For our baby boy Maxwell’s nursery, we wanted to capture a love of the outdoors with a whimsical flair. His room is full of antiques and furniture that we refinished ourselves. We repurposed some furniture from our daughter’s nursery and we were able to give these items even more love.
