When I was coming up with a design for my youngest daughter’s nursery, I knew I wanted two things: 1.) NO pink (I see enough of that with my older daughter, as you may have seen in my previous post) and 2.) A design that she could grow with. Below you can read how I rolled out my vision.
How To Create A Sleepy Blue Nursery For Baby
Start With This Wall Color
Blue is my absolute favorite color, so although it’s the color more often associated with a baby boy’s room, I decided to take on the challenge of designing a beautiful, feminine blue baby girl’s room. After testing out many samples, I decided on a beautiful shade of soft blue (Sleepy Blue by Sherwin Williams). This color really could work for either a girl or boy’s room, but I love how it plays with the subtle floral details of Delaney’s room.
Add Artwork & Accessories
For Delaney’s room, I knew I wanted to go pretty opposite of Serafina’s in terms of color, but keep with the floral inspiration. I found these beautiful vintage floral prints on Etsy and I found the frames at Michael’s. The Rosette table lamp below is from Pier 1. I bought it almost NINE years ago! I can not believe they still have it in stock!!
Display Beautiful Childrens’ Books
All of these items were carried over from our previous house with the exception of the curtains and these adorable picture ledges, which I styled with some of the beautiful books I received at my baby shower for Delaney. (You can shop these beautiful books below!)
I love this Pillowfort Circle Shelf from Target. The brass adds a little bit of warmth to her very cool-toned room, and it’s just another fun way to display some of her cute books and baby items!
Choose Your Window Treatments
I found these magnolia print curtains at Pier 1, and they seriously work perfectly in this room! They almost match the wall color exactly, which is what I’m going for. I love a room that’s washed all in the same color, floor to ceiling. And for the girls’ bedrooms, I decided I wanted to keep it close with the bedding and window treatments as well.
