I had the pleasure of viewing Ava's nursery in person a few weeks ago. The combination of light blue and the different shades of pink in the room create a wonderful contrast which is playful and calming. The hand-made flower balls add the perfect punch of color and mimic the modern floral pattern on the bedding. The words above her closet remind the family of important things to do every day: dream, laugh, love. Enjoy the photos and thank you Julie for sharing!
What was the inspiration for your room?
We wanted to have girlie room but not the typical pink on pink. We loved her bedding and used that to introduce other colors as well. The room was even already painted blue!
What was the first piece that you purchased for your nursery?
What is your favorite aspect of the room?
The flowers hanging over her bed. I made them. It was really important to me to have something that I made for her in the room. It took many nights of cutting and gluing, but I finished them 48 hours before she was born!
Now that your room is complete, what would you change or do differently if you could?
I would like to have wood floors instead of the carpet. The white carpet gets really dirty, but at least it keeps her room warm and she can crawl around comfortably.
Please share information on any of the lines or websites that you used to design the nursery:
Caden Lane for her bedding, Young America for the furniture, Paper Source for the flower kit, Benjamin Moore for room paint and accents, Anthropologie for dresser knobs, and Pottery Barn Kids for the letters.
