Soft and Serene Nursery :: Nursery Tuesday

I stumbled upon Owen’s sweet nursery over on Remodelaholic and I love how calm and relaxing the space is.  The pallet wall is fabulous.  Even though most pallet walls feel so industrial Nancy was able to make the feature soft and it works so well in the room.    I loved reading through her whole thought process on how her vision for the room evolved which you can read here.   Head on over to Owen’s Olivia to see all the details on this amazing nursery!

HOT HOT HOT Colors! :: Nursery Tuesday

I think since I was born in the 80’s there is some sort of crazy bright neon obsession running through my veins.  So it’s no wonder that I have orange walls in my house or lime green accessories everywhere.  When I started designing Emma Grace’s nursery I knew my obsession would continue – I wanted bright colors!  Check out all of these fun HOT colors to help you decorate your little one’s space too!

Modern Cherry Blossom Nursery from Project Nursery

The details in this nursery are amazing.  There is a perfect balance between the soft neutral gray with a couple pops of bright pink.  It is playful and fun with little touches of whimsy.  Not to mention I love the glider from Oilo Studios !

Lime Green/ Royal Blue Chevron Alligator by ZeppiPrints

Well we know how much I love lime green and blue as we have seen here.  So when I found ZeppiPrint’s Etsy shop I was in LOVE!  They have some of the cutest prints that are available in all different colors and backgrounds.  They have so many prints that would be great for nurseries, playrooms and any other room in the house!

Ceramic Owl Bank by fruitflypie

I do love decorating with cute little ceramic animals.  I think one day I aspire to be just like Sherry from Young House Love (check out only the beginning of her obsession here). 🙂  So why not decorate and put away some extra change for little one with these ADORABLE banks?

Stripes in the Nursery from Spearmint Baby

 I am always up for a great hot pink/gray and chevron/stripe combo too!

I am hoping to get together a round-up of Emma Grace’s nursery for you all soon!  Then maybe I can feature something of my own…wow that would be fun times huh? 🙂

For the Love of Yellow! :: Nursery Tuesday

I am loving yellow lately!  It is such a bright cheery color that is great for little boys or girls.  My favorite part is that you can use yellow as a starting point for a gender neutral nursery, then when the baby arrives it is so easy to pair it with either feminine or masculine touches.  Yellow and gray is pretty trendy right now and with accents of stripes or the ever popular chevron you can’t go wrong!

Nightlights :: Nursery Tuesday

Being new to blogging I’m still working on how to get all of my ideas organized into posts.  Yesterday it clicked!  I’m going to try to have a couple of days of the week have a theme so that I can plan better and then you can know what to expect!  I’ve seen several of my favorite bloggers do the same thing and I love it so I’m jumping on the bandwagon too!

It is no secret that I LOVE nursery design.  The first nursery I did was of course Jake’s but that was before I really started taking an interest in interior design.  When I found out my sister was pregnant I was elated that she let me sew all custom bedding and window treatments for my nephew’s room.  My first job straight out of college was working at a baby boutique where I was able to design nurseries on a daily basis and it was so much fun.  I was able to help design everything from the most traditional and eclectic rooms to over the top modern design.  While working there I dreamed up so many ideas for my next nursery so when we found out we were pregnant Jeremy specifically told me to “not go crazy!”  Well, I didn’t go to crazy and over the next couple weeks I will show off Emma Grace’s nursery!  For now I’ll start sharing some of the things I’ve looked at lately.

Nightlights add a nice soft light to a room to help with late night feedings and even a bit of comfort for an older child.  Here are a couple of my favorites!
