Nursery Decor & Baby Room Ideas


nautical girl nursery Be sure to check out the fifth and final nursery collaboration with the Land of Nod on Honest to Nod today – “girl sailor.”  Love how this room came together!  We worked on four rooms using each one of their new cribs, and the weathered greywash keepsake crib is perfect for this space!  So clever to have extra storage below!  See the inspiration board and all the other details here! Also, be sure to check out the rest of the rooms: Baby Bear, Candy Kisses, Little Rockstar, and my favorite, Timothy’s Room!


Marcia"Your nursery selections are by far the best of any blog! Please do a shapes inspired nursery with Aztec …"

yellow and blue baby nursery inspiration

I feel like I’ve been seeing jackalopes here and there lately.  Such strange, cute little critters.  It has always stuck out in my mind that Chip says when he was a kid, he always believed them to be real.  Guess it’s sort of the unicorn of the desert, maybe?  Anyway, I’m loving that Nan Lawson print above.  I’m also pretty crazy about those candlestick pendant lights.

a big girl room for vivi

pink big girl room

(sources below) For awhile, I’ve been thinking and planning about some changes to Vivi’s room.  We have moved things around a few times, but as we recently became officially done with the changing table and she has been adjusted to the big girl bed for awhile, it seems a good time for a refresh.  Her rug is also in need of replacing after three and a half years of toddler love, and all the moving around of artwork and such has left quite a few scars on the walls.  We are (attempting) to work on stopping the thumb sucking – it’s so hard!  She really wants to paint her room pink, and we have promised once she stops sucking her thumb, we will repaint it.  I’m also hoping to move Brigette into Vivi’s room once she graduates to a big girl bed (cue tears!), which is still a little bit away.  Vivi tends to have a lot of bad dreams, and I’m hoping having Brigette close by might bring her a little extra comfort, not to mention fun.  Also check out my pinterest board of inspiration here.

(By the way, anyone have any tips on the thumb-sucking thing?  It’s a challenge!  We are trying to be very encouraging, but it’s a tough habit to kick!)

mermaid baby room inspiration (Sources listed below.)   I’m loving this bright and happy inspiration for today!  I came across the Hooray Today etsy shop. and I’m loving all the bright and quirky prints!  So fun – especially the kitty cone.  Also, who is going to purchase that awesome vintage Copenhagen travel poster?  Comment if you get it and send me pics of how perfect it looks in your space – wish I could snag it!  It’s also quite a statement piece at 24″ x 39″, so it would really anchor a room!!  Seriously, someone needs to grab it!
