The Anti-Pooh: Modern Nursery Inpiration

There must be something in the water because this is a baby-bonanza summer.

Including one lovely reader whose is just days, minutes, seconds away from welcoming her first little baby girl. Her nursery was inspired by a Liberty of London floral fabric pattern from Target. It turned out adorably with not one hint of anything character-y (Why, people! Your baby doesn't care. Make it nice for yourself in the beginning). So I put together a fun nursery inspired by a Serena & Lilly crib sheet in blues and orangy-red adding in some pops of green and brown.

The furniture is from Ikea and very inexpensive. And the more adult pieces can be enjoyed while she's young and moved to other places in the house when she becomes more mobile (sharp edges!). This room springs ($$$) for an old fashioned doll house, because it's never too early to start em' young with good design, right.

  1. Love it! I agree with you, mommy and daddy should love the room too! Babies have no say until they are older!

  2. I also agree. Plus, I thought that the web store may have been inspired by Gossip Girl. But nope. :) Have a great weekend!

  3. I really like the green crib.
