Baby Girl Nursery Inspiration; Baby Nursery Inspiration; Nursery Inspiration Board

I have received some questions about the wall of frames, so I have to share this frame resource.  There is a link in the first post about Vivi’s nursery, but in case you missed it, all of the frames on the wall came from here.  I really wanted skinny gilded frames, but was having a difficult time finding affordable ones until I stumbled across that site, and for what they lack in website design, they make up for in price (and all the frames are made-to-order in the USA!).  I labeled each picture above with the frame size, so you can look them up if you wish.  All of the photos (except the quotes, which I printed on Chip’s large format printer) were printed on my home printer, which makes this wall come to a total of about $75.  I had originally intended to paint a few of the frames in fun colors (which I did for the Flight of the Conchords posters – those frames are painted pink) but I ended up loving them all being the same pretty gold.

Stay posted for some fun style boards next week!

    This is great! I’ve been wanting to do something similar, but frames can get so expensive! Thanks for posting this.

  2. I have been looking for gilded frames for a gallery wall above our chimneypiece and having a difficult time until now. This is such a lovely website. Thanks for sharing!

    I LOVE this! I’m in the process of redoing my girl’s room and I just found your blog through another one. I love the color of the room. Have you ever shared what it is? I also just loved the photo montage and was so excited to go to your blog and see them close up with explanations! Beautiful!

    Oh, goodness. You have been probably “asked” to death. I am just wondering about the three prints with words. Where did you find them? This nursery just took my breath. So adorable. I don’t even have a baby or one on the way. Just such a wonderful mix of colors and textures and full of love. Thank you for sharing!

      Hi Lynne! I designed the prints and printed them out on poster paper. Thank you so much for your comments!

      Wow. I just love them. Maybe, just maybe, if I read your blog long enough, some of that creativity will rub off on me. One can hope!

  15. […] got the idea from laybabylay’s nursery. Mine will incorporate more woodland elements, mostly sourced from etsy…unless I can make […]

    Lovely!! Could you please share the wall color behind the frames? It complements the gilded frames so nicely. Thank you!

    Discovered your website from the “playroom art” post (which is GREAT)… I’d love to send you a sample of our new (instant, changeable) gallery frames. We don’t have gold (yet), but our Silk White was designed with nurseries in mind. It’s a bright, – but warm – white that works well with gold, silver and champagne colored frames. They’re totally eco-friendly and 100% made in USA. (Change of Art® launches soon, mid-October.)

  18. Frame USA says:

    Hi Joni! Frame USA here. We love your framed prints–some really great designs and ideas! (And yes, our website is quite lacking, but we are deploying a more modern, clean design here soon!) Feel free to contact us on Facebook or Twitter–we’d love to send you some samples if you have a frame you’d like to try. We’d love to see what creative ideas you come up with!

    Thank you so much for your fabulous blog. I have a quick question. Are these frames the “bronzed gold” or “classic gold” listed on the FrameUSA link?
