We heard from Jiye, who is putting the finishing touches on the nursery for her soon-to-arrive daughter Audrey. She writes, "I was really excited to create a beautiful, modern space for our first child. Being pregnant right in the middle of the economic crisis made me wonder if it would be possible on such a tight budget. This room is an example of how real people with real budgets can achieve real style (I hope!)."

My favorite element in the room is the silhouette prints by my friend, Sarah of Truly Smitten. She incorporated my 2 colors (green and fuschia) seamlessly and the prints are just the perfect addition to the nursery!!

Another favorite element is the alphabet print. I was obsessed with the BINTH alphabet poster before i was ever even pregnant. Unfortunately, at $85, it was over budget...so I found this alternative on etsy!

Crib + Dresser --> Walmart
Blanket/Pillow/Art --> Etsy and graphic designer friend
Bookshelf --> a craigslist find! (ikea)
Chandelier --> Urban Outfitters
Rug --> Target
Stroller --> eBay!

and the list goes on and on!

We think Audrey is going to love her room - it is a warm, fresh space that is feminine without being "girly" and modern without being cold. Excellent job and best wishes for many happy times in the nursery.

Thanks, Jiye!
