Real Rooms - Pretty in Pink

Today's nursery comes to us from Charleston, SC.  The parents are actually very good friends of mine and it was fun to watch this room come together over e-mails and inspirational images.  They decided to go very bold and bright for the walls with a more contrasting traditional rug and I think it turned out fabulous!

1 - What was the inspiration for your room?
We saw an ad in the Maine Cottage catalogue that used coral and aqua in a bedroom as the two main colors and absolutely loved it!!! I knew I wanted something feminine but didn't want the classic baby pink.

2 - What was the first piece that you purchased for the room?
Once we decided on the two colors we went looking for a rug.  It was the first item we purchased and is also my favorite piece in the room.

3 - What is your favorite aspect of the room?
Other than the rug, I love the little reading nook with all of Miden's dolls and stuffed animals.  It just always looks cozy and inviting.

4 - Now that your room is complete, what would you change or do differently if you could?
There isn't one thing I would change.  I love it!!!

Please share some of your sources in the room with our readers:
Dresser - Antique from my husband's grandmother
Crib & Changing Table - Jenny Lind
