Modern Garden Nursery

Modern Garden Nursery

My husband and I did not want to go with a traditional pink room for our little girl... we wanted something modern, chic, and "unexpected"!

The inspiration for Brooklyn's modern garden nursery came from two stretched canvases from the beautiful amenity home nursery collection.

I wanted the room to reflect a modern garden, full of brightly colored butterflies, lady bugs, bees, flowers, and bunnies that all matched the canvases.

I had found a picture of a nursery that had used wall stickers to create a mural of modern flowers on a wall. I projected the image onto the nursery wall and I painted the flowers using the colors from the canvas. I painted 25 flowers (some above 5 feet tall!) I used a level, blue painter's tape, and 2 days to get the stems flawless!

The furniture is the Mercer 3-in-1 convertible crib and dresser from the Baby Letto Collection by Da Vinci.

My husband made three shadow boxes that have yellow and green flowers inside, as well as a green bunny that matches the canvases.

The bedding is also a key piece to the room. I wanted something very special for the bedding, something modern that reflected the colors in the canvases.

I found amazing fabric at denverfabrics.com - a lime green with white polka dots. My mom came over and we created the bumper and crib skirt without a pattern!

The details on the bedding cannot go unnoticed! We included white piping along the top of the bumper, and ensured all the polka dots were aligned perfectly! This took us an entire day! (I was sewing until midnight!!!) But it is beautiful!

My husband also built a closet organizer and closet doors to keep all of Brooklyn's things in order!

Lastly, I found a gorgeous shag rug that matched the green in the bedding and the canvas to finish the room off!

I have had a vision of how my baby's nursery would look for two years... we lost two babies prior to this one. I finally got to put my vision in place and have a healthy baby on the way (I am 37 weeks now!) as well as a gorgeous nursery that my husband and I built together!
