My Room: Baby Davis

Katie's room for her daughter is a nice mix of vintage and modern. The color scheme has a 70s vibe to it (hello Raggedy Ann) balanced by the modern lines of the furniture. She shares: Our little girl is due in one month, and we couldn't be more excited to bring her home to her new room. I will admit that I was perusing magazines, online, and just about every source I could get my hands on daily for nursery inspiration the moment I found out I was pregnant. While I didn't officially "start" on her nursery until we found out the sex, I did pick out the furniture and bedding prior.

I knew all along that even if it was a girl, I wanted a room that didn't scream too girly, but rather had some vintage flair to offset the modern furniture I had chosen. I really wanted colors that were more subdued, that played against the vintage nursery rhyme prints I had found for her walls. I also thought with the range of colors, it will allow her to grow into the room, rather than it looking outdated or too "baby" in a few years.

Overall, I am super excited with how it all turned out and we can't wait to bring her home and introduce her to her new surroundings.
