Eva's Sweet & Feminine Nursery

Name: Evangeline (8 months)
Location: Alexandria, Virginia

When planning Evangline's nursery, my goal was to make it sweet and feminine without being the traditional pink girl's room. I was able to combine things I already had, DIY projects, and items from family members to create the space without spending too much money. It isn't a big room, so I also wanted to make it feel light and open.

My favorite part about the room is how much of my grandmother is injected into it. Sadly she passed away about a month before Eva was born. I collected a lot of items that belonged to her and was purposeful to display them in her room. I'm looking forward to telling my daughter about all the special things that belonged to her great grandmother and my memories of those things from when I was a child.
