Now that we are into our new house, I finally got to do her nursery. This is a big deal. This is the room that Ivy and I are going to spend HOURS in. I wanted it to be something, hip, fun, and cheery. Something that I enjoyed as well, not too childish. Here it is… Ivy’s room
This nursery gives off a hip, cheery, and fun vibe! I used pink and mint as my color choices and found anything that used those colors to make my little Ivy’s nursery come alive and become a place her and I could enjoy together.
In the crib corner, I created an art print wall with modern white frames. I loved prints with creative sayings and fun pictures!
The crib is a cute white Jenny Lind crib with spindles. I followed that theme and added a mint spindle night stand and a hot pink spindle lamp.
I also used my DIY skills and made a ribbon garland for an empty corner where the dresser is. I transformed my dresser into my changing table and hung some little mobile birdies with cute fabric prints above. I found an adorable mint changing pad cover to add a delicate color to it.
For the recliner and reading corner, the room has some serious high ceilings so I bought a tall bookcase to break up the room. I have a comfy chair from Pottery Barn with a knit blanket on the back. I used canvas prints from Ivy’s newborn photos and my maternity photos as a backdrop.
Lastly, the room is pretty big, so I knew I needed a little bit of color. I wanted it to be calm with a bit of pop. I added a pink accent wall and used a grayish color on the rest of the walls. I just LOVE the accent wall! It’s so much fun!
When I began envisioning my baby girl’s nursery, I knew I wanted something hip and fun. Something that my baby and I could enjoy, even as she grew older, and as I spent time in there, hour upon hour, day after day. I used inspiration from different blogs that I just loved to see what they put together and what other moms were doing for their nurseries. I remember the first thing I bought was the knit blanket and her crib sheet. I decided those were the colors I loved, and I was going with it! From there, I chose the pink and mint to be my main colors, but I wanted to keep with the hip vibe the blanket and crib gave. I wanted this to be something my baby and I could enjoy together. The best thing is, this nursery is cute for babies, and will be even more lovable and fun when she is a toddler!
Hip, fun, cheery, trendy. Full of colors and spunk.

My art prints! I just LOVE my art print wall! The prints are so much fun and are ones that I specially picked out for my baby. It will be fun to add to it throughout the years.
My nursery was just sort of plain before I added my pink accent wall. I sat in there just staring at all of the gray, thinking of what else I could buy to fill it up and add more color. Well then I realized I just needed to change the whole wall! Instead of buying all sorts of shelves and other filler items, the pink added the perfect touch to the room. It made it so much better! And it was much cheaper than buying all sorts of new things to add to fill up the space. Don’t be afraid to go bold! The pink was nice and balanced with the other light gray walls, so it isn’t overwhelming.
Also – find things YOU love too! Sure it’s your baby’s nursery, but you have to spend HOURS in there too :)
