Resources

All my baskets came from the Container Store. They are used for baby clothes since the nursery has no closets and I needed something cute and sturdy that would go nicely in the room. The bookshelves are the main storage but I didn't want them looking too cluttered, so uniform color baskets turned out to be the best solution.

What inspired you?

I was inspired by the color blue and the beautiful view out the window of the nursery. It was previously a dining alcove 11' 6" x 7' 9". I had a wall of bookshelves built when I moved in. So, I hired a contractor to build a wall separating the living room from the alcove and put in a door to the living room and a door to the kitchen. He also filled in the space around the kitchen door with opaque textured glass and he built a changing table that folds down from the shelves.

I inherited the crib from a friend who purchased it and the bedding from Plain Jane in NYC. I mixed the classic style Jenny Lind crib with modern elements like the Kartell fly lamp and the wall decals.

Great Tip:

Shopping online for everything was great for me since it was the middle of summer and I was very pregnant. I bought the 2 shades from Smith & Noble, the rug from Crate & Barrel, the Lamp from Kartell, the decals from Blik and the coat rack from Pylones, all online.
