Name: Heather's baby girl
Location: Baltimore, MD
When designing a nursery for our baby girl, I had a few criteria in mind. First of all, we have a two bedroom condo, and space is limited. The second bedroom needed dual functionality- guest bedroom and nursery.
Secondly, I wanted a room that was stylish and not too girly (nothing wrong with girly, just not my taste). Lastly, I wanted a subtle theme - something modern but that would also work for a baby.
With these criteria in mind I went to work! The inspiration for the nursery came from the fabric on the Sam Moore glider (Seaglass, also known as Waverly Solar Lime Flair). When I saw it I fell in love with it. I thought the fabric had a nautical look, which set the theme. Also, I based the colors of the room around that fabric with shades of navy, white, aqua, and green.
I loved the idea of a colored crib, and Stanley Young America had so many options to choose from. I settled on this Built to Grow Bravo crib in Seagrass. The lamp was a DIY project. It was previously a rusty brass, and with a fresh coat of spray paint it was like new! The whale prints were hand designed by my husband. I found some cool vintage frames for them on Etsy that I thought really made them pop. The whale pillow in the crib was chosen from Etsy to match my husband's designs. The crib bedding was from New Arrivals Inc.. Luckily, they had a bed skirt that perfectly matched my beloved glider! The finishing touch was the three foot stuffed shark from Pottery Barn Kids with coordinating colors with the duvet cover on the full sized bed. My husband said his job is to protect our little one!
I had so much fun decorating this room. It is just missing one more thing - our little girl. Can't wait to meet her!
