It's Nursery Time- Again!

It's good to be back!  I took a few weeks off while getting adjusted to being a mama of two, so I thought I'd come back with some pictures of the nursery.  I had such a good time decorating it- I've blogged about several projects that went into it herehere, here, here, and here.  The wall color was inspired by a pair of ballet shoes I wore as a little girl.  I then added fabric and accessorized with vintage poodles I found with MoS Washington in Palm Beach.  I took the Palm Beach accents a bit farther and added the framed vintage Lilly fabric and faux bamboo furniture, a tole chandelier and a hot air balloon mobile. 

I must mention that I did it on a relatively reasonable budget, making the curtains and bedskirt myself, choosing a basic Pottery Barn rug, recovering the bench myself, painting myself, using inexpensive fabrics, incorporating vintage furniture and accessories, and choosing a very basic crib from Wal-Mart.  For the record I will never understand making a big investment in a crib.  Most of them are not very attractive, and you won't use them for more than a couple of years.  My biggest splurge was recovering the chair in coral fabric with white contrast welting. 




Vintage Mr. and Mrs. Poodle hang over the door.

Vintage tole tulip lamps sit atop a faux bamboo cabinet.

A ceramic poodle box, some Herend pretties, and a vintage owl piggy bank decorate the faux bamboo cabinet.

Little man tries out his soon-to-be sister's new chair.

A pierced blanc de chine lamp from my grandmother lights up the room.



Cute mobiles are really hard to find.  I found this whimsical hot air balloon mobile at Shower Me with Love here in Charlotte.

More Palm Beach style with the palm tree floor lamp!





And, of course, the nursery wasn't complete until sweet Sally came home from the hospital!

Thanks for letting me share Sally's nursery with you!  A big thanks to Katharine for sharing her amazing photography skills with us!  If you are in the Charlotte area and need a photographer, look her up!

I am really not a baby person so anything baby related bores me to tears, but I must say this room is gorgeous!!! Every detail is beautiful and works so lovely.

Stunning! I wish so much I had that in me back when my little ones were babies! How to that same kind of a design for an 8 year old is beyond me!

I have an old settee that I want to recover in my girls' room in coral, and I LOVE the chair fabric. Where did you find it? The nursery is beautiful! What a sweet room!!

Matters of Style said...

Lara- it is actually a Waverly fabric. I can't think of the name but it was like $10 per yard! Maybe if you search Waverly coral you can find it?

so stinking cute! You need to do a house tour link. After you adjust with baby #3 of course!
