Welcome to My Home: Nursery #2

Three young children have meant three nursery designs.  While the first nursery is the most elaborate and sentimental to me, and the third is still a work in progress, my current favorite is the second, for its simplicity, cheerfulness, and whimsy:

I juxtaposed the traditional sturdiness and elegant lines of PBK's Larkin Collection in espresso with a modern Alexander Henry fabric in pink, red, and apple green. I custom-ordered the crib bedding and changing table cover from Maddie Boo Bedding; I also ordered extra fabric, and my mom made the pillow and no-sew cornice boxes (with foolproof kits from Joann).

One of my favorite pieces in the room is the bright pink Shaggy Raggy Rug; the texture is perfect for play, or the impromptu floor nap.

Although I shun overt themes in room decor, we did use a butterfly motif throughout the room --- on the walls, with the mirrors, through a pillow, on the growth chart, on the lamp shade.

Other elements sprinkled throughout the room personalize the space and of course, add function, too.

Since taking these pictures, I've added some personalized artwork over the crib.  Otherwise, the room is very simple, even minimalist in its decor.  The overall feel is of lightness, brightness, and happiness.  That sums up the room's occupant as well. :)
