Melissa wanted modern glamour for her daughter-to-be's room, and searched everywhere for the perfect inspiration. She found it in photos, not of other nurseries, but of sophisticated rooms with luxe finishes. To achieve the look, Melissa painstakingly measured, taped off the walls, and painted irregular horizontal black stripes on one accent wall. Pops of pink complete the effort.

Melissa shows the whole process on her blog, House to Home, along with more photos of the completed space. I think you'll join me in saying "nice job!"
