Nursery Inspiration for the Little Lady

Putting together a girl nursery has been a bigger challenge than I originally anticipated. It wasn't until about five years ago that I actually embraced the color pink (which are still found sparingly in both my home and wardrobe). I mean, my room in high school was navy, gold, and cream. Not a fleck of pink to be found anywhere. 

When we discovered M² was a she, and not he (like I swore M² would be), my mind immediately raced to just how was I going to decorate her room. I've been so submersed in all things boy that the idea of frills and tulle, and PINK, was (and still is) a bit overwhelming. 

If you know me at all, you know that I'm pretty much obsessed with butterflies (I mean, we released 100 Monarch butterflies on our wedding day), so I knew those simply would have to be incorporated throughout the room. 

Thus far, it's been interesting to find a nice balance of soft and sweet, but not too pink or too much matchy-matchy. The room is still very much a work in progress, but here are a few items that have been the inspiration for M²'s nursery.
bedding // rug // butterfly sphere
curtain tie-backs // mobile // lamp base
curtains // picture frame // print
Creams, golds, and pops of pink will be the primary colors throughout the room. Touches of crystal and crackled glass will provide nice little touches throughout. And, clearly, butterflies are a must.

  1. Oh gorgeous!! There are so many fun ways to incorporate butterflies and touches of pink ;) Mia's room isn't nearly as pink as I thought it would be... ha ha! But my mom made her mobile and it's GORGEOUS! I'm off to find you the blog post showing her simple room so that you can see the butterflies we have in it!
    My babes will be sharing a room so that we can keep our guest room and I'm totally stressing on how to decorate it! At first I wasn't going to change anything (because I don't want to get rid of the mobile for Mia, I seriously LOVE it) but now I'm thinking I might go with a gender neutral animal type room. Mia is obsessed with animals so it might actually make her really happy...and then the room won't be too feminine for baby boy :) But I'm the worst at putting this stuff together. I'm gonna need some serious help in the decor department. Actually, I need help with inspiration for the bedroom as a whole, ha ha!

  5. FYI, wanted to see the bedding link and it's not working. But anyway, back to the colors. LOVE them, and as you know, Ady has butterflies on her wall! Also, you could TOTALLY make a mobile like that for way less! Just buy a butterfly cut out from Michaels and BAM! :) Those butterfly sphere's are AWESOME too!

  9. Beautiful sounding. Can't wait for that to come together. You nailed it with Marcus' boy room. I think you'll achieve greatness here too - esp with mom's help eh. I love the butterfly mobile. So pretty.
