Subtle and Sweet Nursery

When designing Adalyn’s room, I was overwhelmed with all of the accessories that matched the “bedding collections.”  It just seemed too generic and frankly, too much!  I think I would grow tired of the overly matching look in a month.  I wanted her room to provide a tranquil feeling.

Furniture for the nursery is an eclectic mix – a wardrobe from my Grandparents, crib from JC Penney, changing table from Target that I filled with baskets from Michael’s, and a cozy rocking chair I found on Craigslist.  Each piece is transitional.  Adalyn now stores her toys in the changing table baskets.

Colored letters that say \'Nest\'
These little letters give a pop of color and can be rearranged in a number of ways. As you can see, how they have been displayed has evolved.

I found this chandelier, similar to a much pricier option that I adored, at Home Depot.  For just a few dollars more, I added a ceiling ring to give it even more charm.

When designing a room for your space, keep in mind that you don’t have to purchase everything from the same place, in fact, I feel it adds interest to integrate old and new.  To see how these items were used to personalize a nursery for Aniston, click here.
