Isla’s Nursery Decor

Simple & beautiful neutral nursery decor - inexpensive ways to create a beautiful nursery

Chris thought he had a few extra days off over the holidays. Was he ever wrong! I had a determined mind & a list of things I wanted to accomplish, & he kindly obliged. We’re still playing seek & find with a lot of our things, but I did manage to locate most of the art for Isla’s room & repurposed some nursery decor from other spaces. As you may recall, this year I’m all about little accomplishments & less focused on completing an entire room at once. Isla’s nursery qualifies for the year of vignettes as there’s still so much to do, but this little glimpse makes me happy, & she seems to love it equally as much.

In the fall, my mother-in-law & I were shopping at Restoration Hardware Outlet when we came by this adorable little lamb. It’s something I’ve always wanted for our girls’ nurseries, but couldn’t afford. In fact, every time the girls see one, they all want to ride – even Adalyn. My in-laws gifted this pretty little lamb to Isla for Christmas & she couldn’t be happier. I inspired me to start decorating her room.

Isla is nearing two, so I reconfigured the arrangement of her Rifle Paper Co card art into a vertical arrangement. I think they stack up beautifully!

Being a mother of three, I appreciate when the girls sleep well. Blackout curtain panels seem to help significantly with that! I also can’t resist a ruffle…it’s a sweet & subtle detail I love. I found these ruffle trim curtain panels at Pottery Barn Kids, but unfortunately they’re no longer available.

I learned the hard way with Ani that while cribs can transition into full-size beds, they rarely do – because of teeth beaver marks. I selected a for Isla that was inexpensive, but held up well! She, too has exercised her teeth on the crib. By our third child, I also realized that the 3-5 piece crib bedding set is unnecessary. They can’t use a bumper & quilt until their older, so I had a cable knit blanket embroidered with her name – simple, but sweet.

As the cold forces us to spend more time inside, I look forward to unpacking, organizing & decorating. We’ve made a lot of progress in the last few weeks that I can’t wait to share with you!

  5. I know I am asking so many questions but I just LOVE the way you decorate! Neturals with different wood tones is something I want to accomplish but have a hard time doing it without things looking bland. So I love gold but the brass gold look. So where did you get the curtain rod and the picture frames? Thank you again for your help!

  6. Hi I was wondering what the paint color is on the wall?

  7. Julie,

    Could you please describe the lovely framing process for these cute Rifle paper pictures in your daughter’s nursery? It appears that there is a light gray mat behind the cards but I can’t tell if that is the wall color behind a floating pice of glass. Is that a linen fabric mat next to the gold frame? It all looks so very pretty! Thanks so much!

    • The frames are made to float the picture – they’re from Hobby Lobby, but the cards are smaller than the backing on the frames to adhere them to, so I broke that off and used double stick tape.
