Girly Mod-Sophisticate Nursery

Girly Mod-Sophisticate Nursery

I wanted to create a Girly Mod-Sophisticate Nursery with a gray and pink color palette for our little baby girl on the way. My first step was to try and find some gray and pink bedding. I had an extremely hard time finding bedding to fall into that category.






After countless hours of searching the internet, I finally found the perfect bedding - the "Zoe" collection by Glenna Jean.

Once I made my decision on the bedding, I ordered a swatch of the fabric and used that to find the perfect paint color. The walls needed to be a grayish-beige color (a warm gray) and I found the perfect color at Benjamin Moore - "North Hampton Beige".

I wanted to add some character to the walls besides just the paint color and since the bedding has a leaf pattern, I thought a tree would be the perfect accent. We live in an apartment, so when we move we will need to paint the walls back to white. I didn't want to spend a lot of time painting a tree on the wall only to paint over it within the next year, so I decided to get a wall decal. I found a beautiful tree wall decal at www.wallslicks.com. It takes two people to put it up, but it is relatively easy and the end result is fabulous.

Since the bedding has a chocolate brown color in it, I naturally wanted to enhance those tones through our furniture. So we went with the Munire "Newport" collection in espresso.

The monogram above the crib was an idea I had in my head that I couldn't find online or in stores anywhere. I don't have access to woodworking tools, or the skills to create such a thing, but I was so determined to make the idea in my head come to life that I exhausted every avenue before giving up on my idea.

Finally, I was on eBay searching for wall letters and noticed a seller that created shapes as well as wall letters. When I say "shapes," I mean stars, moon, circles, hearts, etc. I took my chances and just asked if they could create an oval to encase one of their wall letters. I explained what I wanted as best I could and drew them a picture of what I wanted it to look like. They said it would be "no problem" and voila, my beautiful monogram will hang above our precious daughter's crib. It turned out beautifully and exactly how I had imagined and described it. Both the oval and wall letter are made of wood and painted white.

The chandelier in the corner was a clearance find at Urban Outfitters last August. It fits the room's personality perfectly. It is also made of wood.

The animal pictures above the dresser, as well as the curtains, were made to go with the bedding and are also Glenna Jean.

I still need to get a changing pad to go on top of the dresser, which will go right below the animal pictures. Once I get that, the only thing remaining to make it perfect is our sweet little baby girl.

I hope you enjoy looking at this space as much as I do.

*Please note: This is a very small room (8x7), so I wanted it as simple and elegant as possible. I was pleased to find the furniture fit just perfectly. The pictures were somewhat difficult to take since it is such a small room.

TIP: If painting or making your own tree seems a bit daunting, try an easy stick, removable tree wall decal. There are lots of beautiful ones available and they really brighten up the room!

EVERYONE WHO WAS LOOKING FOR THE EBAY SELLER:

Funcreations09, then just contact seller and they will create a customized order with scalloped frame if that is what you are looking for. Bought one for my daughter's room and love it! It's well made and looks great on the wall. Highly recommended!

I love this room and the bedding. Thank you for posting it. I have the Urban Outfitters light and wondered if you put ribbons on yourself. Mine came with twisty ties. Did you put ribbon over the twisty ties? Just wondering.
Thanks!

I bought this same bedding for my little girl and was looking everywhere for the perfect wall decal! I'm so glad I came across your pictures because I love the tree and it goes perfectly with the bedding. I'm definitely going to order the tree for my little girl now. You did a fantastic job. Very elegant and pretty for a perfect princess.
