There are few things I love more than a cute little nursery. While the space needs to be functional I always love adding a touch of whimsy to a nursery, and it’s always so sweet to think of all the memories the future little inhabitant of the room will make there.  If I had to pick I would say that nurseries are my favorite room to design for clients, so it’s no surprise that when it came to Ellie’s nursery it turned is one of my favorite rooms in the house. You have probably seen bits and pieces of her room featured on my Instagram page, but it is about time I shared the complete space with you and told you a little bit about the overall design.

When I found out we were having another girl we knew we wanted to use Addison’s old crib for her new baby sister but I also wanted to make sure the room was completely different from Addison’s old nursery.  When I was designing Addison’s nursery I was very much into minimalist decor and was  against making the room feel too girly.  This time around, I loved the idea of a statement wall and adding a bit more “frill” to the design. A few weeks later I came across this wallpaper on Etsy and I knew I had to have it in our new nursery and from there the rest of the design fell into place.

When designing a kids space, whether it’s in my home or someone else’s home, I try to look for budget friendly items because, well,  kids will be kids.  My two investment pieces in this room where the  rocking chair (which was also used from Addison) and this gorgeous lacquer dresser.  I splurged on the dresser because it is a piece that can grow with Ellie as we transitioned her to a big kids room and beyond.  The other items in her room were very budget friendly that way in a few years when we change the room around I won’t feel too bad about moving them to a different space or getting rid of them all together.

One of the last items I found for the space were these XO prints and they are probably two of my favorite art prints in our home.  They were also found on Etsy and I made them a little extra special by having them framed by Framebridge, an online retailer that custom frames your art pieces.

I hope you love Ellie’s sweet nursery as much as I do and I hope these few decorating tips give you something to think about the next time you tackle designing a space in your home.
