Nursery Tour: Little K's Sweet Dreams Room

Child's Name: Little K.
Age: 2
Location: Missouri

We love having a little boy, but when we saw the room Nathalie put together for her daughter, Little K., well - it hurt a little! It's soft and sweet and, in our book, gives "girly" a good name. Little K's room has a magical quality to it without being themey or feeling like a catalog shoot (though it certainly rivals photo-styled rooms in its beauty!). Nathalie has mixed and matched brand name items with vintage, thrifted and handmade pieces with an ease and effortlessness that, frankly, we envy. And it doesn't hurt that she's an amazing photographer and can capture Little K's room in all its glory!

We asked Nathalie to let us in on a few of her secrets:

Inspiration: Wow, with so many of my favorite bloggers out there inspiring me, it is hard to name just one source of inspiration.

Favorite Element: The chandelier in her room. It brings all of the colors together. Plus we love looking at it before she goes to sleep, it is quite magical.

Biggest Challenge: The room is sort of big, so I did not have any challenges per se. However, with a big room it takes a little bit more to make an impact. I'm not a fan of too much, but am not a minimalist either. I like just the right combination. If this makes any sense at all.

What Friends Say: Oh and Aww! They love coming to see her room.

Proudest DIY: I have made quite a few things for the room. But what I like the most is the pink mirror. I had sitting around for quite some time. I spray painted it and made a garland to dress it up. Everyone loves the result!

Biggest Indulgence: Definitely the Pottery Barn bedding and rug. Second was the chandelier, also from Pottery Barn Kids. The chandelier did not have all of the beads around it. I strung them in a fishing line and wrapped around it.

Best advice: Don't overdo and keep walls in a light color.

Dream source: Umm, I would be lying if I did not say Pottery Barn Kids.

Resources: Some things in the room came from Pottery Barn, some from Target, and some are vintage finds. I try to mix up the old and the new.

Thanks for sharing Little K's room with us, Nathalie! Readers, you can find more inspiration from Nathalie and stop by and say hello on her blog, Kennedy & Friends.
