Matt and I moved into our home a mere three months before our little princess was due to arrive. Not only did we have a whole house to settle into, but I wanted to create a beautiful nursery to welcome my baby girl home too. Fortunately, I was able to complete the nursery before she came (I definitely had my doubts that this was going to happen), and I am so happy with the way it turned out. I hope you like it, too!
The first thing I did was figure out a color palette. I loved the color combination of coral, mint, and turquoise. I could not find any pre-existing betting with this color palette, so I had to make my own!
I searched high and low, and I found this gorgeous Anthropologie wallpaper that was the definition of perfect. However, with the heavy price tag of $150 per roll, it was definitely out of the budget, even for a princess.
When I finally stumbled across this fabric (Joel Dewberry Fabric -Bungalow - Dahlia in Coral), I knew it would be perfect for the space. It had the perfect colors, and was something that she could grow into.
I ordered 8 yards. 6 yards for the curtains and 2 yards for the fitted sheet. Both were pretty easy to make, as I found great tutorials on Pinterest! I found some complementary fabric at Joannes for the ruffled bedskirt, which is a little more difficult to make, but so so worth it.
I wanted to keep the space light and airy, so I found the lightest color of mint green that I could and slapped it on the walls. I wanted to paint the inside of the closet the same coral as in the fabric, and found that Youthful Coral by Behr was a perfect match. This is also the color I painted my garage sale dresser, the frame above her crib, and the hardware on the armoire in the closet.
My handyman hubby built the scalloped bookshelves on either side of the window, as well as the shelves on the right side of the closet to put my cute baskets on. He thought I was crazy for wanting to leave the doors of the closet, but look how cute all of her little closer to look at! I'm not crazy, right? Above the closet hangs a fabric garland made from my scrap fabric I has left over from the linens. I did add some lace, too.
Above her crib on the right, the ornate mirror I got it a garage sale, I just painted the frame white. I got it wood letter "B" and some fake flowers at a craft store, and made a piece of art. The Frame on the left side above her crib I got at Goodwill. I chose a verse for Brynlee that I prayed over her while I was pregnant, and I wanted to incorporate it into her room somehow. I created the framed verse in Photoshop using various colors and fonts and made it fit into my darling frame. The center piece of art I found a hobby lobby.
So the nursery is complete, and I love it! Perfect for our baby girl <3
