heather’s neutral nursery

Friday, June 22, 2012

I’m excited to share some real nursery inspiration today, highlighting a few nurseries that have recently been sent to me.  (We are working on a better nursery submission process!)  All of these are great examples of making really sweet spaces with neutral walls, which I’m sure will be inspiring for many of you.  First up is Heather‘s simple and sweet nursery.  I love how she kept it simple, and relied on the simple beauty on the pieces she collected to bring warmth to the room.  She did this room on a serious budget, and that lovely dresser is from craigslist!  Nicole on Chic & Cheap Nursery also featured Heather’s nursery earlier this week if you want to find out more details about this sweet room.

Next up is the nursery sweet Coryann created for baby Vivienne.  I love how she kept the palette simple and bright for a clean look and a cheery space.  Check out her site here for more pictures of the room and her beautiful family.

I love some of the details in this masculine room Alyssa created for baby Ryan.  I think that banner above the crib is such a great solution for above the crib art that you won’t have to worry about since it is so lightweight.  She bought that amazing tufted velvet chair at a vintage store, and those metal magazine racks are a great storage solution for books!

    THANK YOU JONI!  I feel honored to be able to share my daughter’s daughter on your fabulous site.  You’re one rockin’ mama : ]

  2. I love the dresser in the first one.  I can’t believe that was found on craigslist.  So beautiful.

    Where is the banner in Ryans room from?

    • Joni Lay says:

      Hi Melissa!  Alyssa made it!  She was inspired by the blog I linked to in the margin, http://www.housetweaking.com .  I couldn’t find the exact link, but I’ll see if I can track it down for you!

    • Aly McDowell says:

       Hey there Melissa! Joni was right; I was inspired by the Housetweaking blog. I just bought a drop cloth from Lowes and sewed a panel at the top for the curtain rod. I used an overhead projector to trace the letters and then just used wall paint. My mother in law sewed the bottom to fit above the crib. I promise, it wasn’t too hard!

      Here is the link to a photo of the House Tweaking banner: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/danas-diy-modern-casual-home-h-131799 .  I love how you made it your own, though, Aly, and I think the rod is a great addition!!  It’s such an awesome solution for over-the-crib art.

    I love the white base  lamp in Heather’s room!  Where is it from?

    • Joni Lay says:

      Hi Meredith!  It’s from West Elm – it’s so pretty isn’t it?  Unfortunately, it appears that style is no longer available, but you may be able to find something similar from there.  Here is a link to their current styles: http://www.westelm.com/shop/lighting/table-lamps/?cm_type=lnav .

    Joni! I’m loving your blog. It’s going straight into my reader, although I’m going to have to have a stern talk with God about the fact this doesn’t indicate an interest in a fourth pregnancy. 😉 So glad I got to meet you at Haven! Hope our paths cross again!

    • Joni says:

      Haha, aww, thanks, Colleen!  It was great meeting you, too, and I really enjoyed chatting!  Fun to know another Georgia blogger!!

    I LOVE that first nursery! Where is that crib from!? I want it for my baby!

    Hi there! This is my little boy’s room. 🙂 The bedding was purchased from Etsy from a store called birdshaveflowers. It is retro rocket themed. The banner I actually made from a drop cloth from Home Depot. I just used regular wall paint. I actually just moved it to over the changing table cause my lil one is standing now and trying to pull it down! Thank you so much for your compliments. I loved putting this together and even after 9 months, I still love going in there!
