Like many parents Nina had to sacrifice a home office to make room for her daughter's arrival. Well she sure did make the most of it with this delightful orange and blue nursery. Nina describes: When we found out we are expecting our first baby girl, we did not know which room to "house" the baby. Whether converting the office to nursery, or keeping the office and retrofitting the guest room into nursery/guest room.

We decided on converting the office. We want her to have a room of her own where she can grow into. We kept the paint color the same which is Kelly Moore Malibu Beige. We like a neutral background as a canvas to start our design. We are not a big fan of pink and pastels. So we decided to choose orange and blue as our color scheme. We would like to focus on having more orange than the blue so that it looks more like a girl's room. The nursery styles are modern and whimsy which can be easily transition to a toddler room without making many changes.

I used my own textile for the bedding, except for the crib sheet. I also re-upholstered a hand-me down glider and give it a fresh coat of paint. Both crib and changing tables are from Dwell Studio from Target. The pendant is from Lamps Plus. The artworks are from the lovely etsy seller, Umbrella Prints. The decals are from etsy seller, ShaNickers. The mobile is from Carter's. All textiles are from Swanky Swell.

Thanks Nina and Mila!
