We love how this detailed rug ties all the colors in the room together. Brooke tells us more about her daughter's nursery: Our baby girl's nursery is filled with vintage and modern furnishings, as well as meaningful gifts from family and friends.

Storage was an issue for us in this bedroom - half of the closet was taken over by a chimney addition years before we moved into the house. The remaining closet is only 18" wide with one curtain rod and a shelf. That's why we chose to add a dresser and large bookshelf to the room. There are also storage containers hidden under the crib and on the floor of the closet. We wanted to keep the large pieces in the room neutral and use colors in the rug for accessories. My background is in teaching so the light fixture, Dick and Jane artwork, and picture book collection add a schoolhouse touch to the room.
