Beautiful Green, Navy And White Nursery

Beautiful Green, Navy And White Nursery  by Shelli

Hi ya'll!  My name is Shelli and I am so happy to be visiting Remodelaholic today!  When Cassity asked me to share my baby girl's nursery with you I was super excited, what an honor!  I am a new blogger of 3 months, and am enjoying learning more and more as I delve into blogland.  Wow!  Who knew?  I am a former corporate junkie in the world of medical device sales, turned stay at home mommy to the cutest 15 month old hot mess, baby K.  I blog about all things stylish with an emphasis on interior design with a budget in mind- a' la mode

Cassity asked me to share a few details on baby K's nursery and I am honored to do so!  My life changed in February 2010, as my little girl entered the world.  Her nursery is one of my FAV rooms in our home.  It is bright and cheery and makes me happy- I can only hope it does the same for her (fingers crossed).


I started with the basics.  I knew I wanted an iron crib for an old school feel.  I also knew that I wanted to go with white furniture basics for a fresh crisp feel to the space.  The glider is great for late night rocks with baby, but has a club chair feel.  No need for an ottoman, just use a stool!  Mine came from a garage sale over 15 years ago, and has been upholstered in every fabric on the planet.  Well, not really, but you get the idea!  I repurposed a slipper chair from a guest room for extra seating and bought a changing table on clearance knowing that it will not stay in her room forever (thank goodness diaper changing doesn't last forever!).


The color palette of this nursery came from this $29.99 lamp from Tuesday Morning.  I love the bright fun green (very unisex) and the straw shade that gives some texture.


I am a big believer in creating a warm and fresh space for baby with pops of color for visual stimulation without being too literal.  In fact, the pillow on her glider was found in the clearance section of HomeGoods.  You certainly don't need to find your nursery decor in a baby boutique.


Never underestimate the power of etsy!  The possibilities are endless.....  I found these very 'non baby' fabrics (Modern Meadow), found a shop specializing in crib decor, and presto!


Storage is important in EVERY room, right?  The basic bookshelf tower came from ikea, but the mix of baskets and buckets were all from TJMaxx, HomeGoods, and from various rooms in the house.  No need to waste money on specific containers sold at places like Potterybarn Kids (though some are super cute!), it makes it more interesting when the containers aren't as expected.  Oh, and a little ribbon never hurt either!


My favorite new item in the room is this fun take on an animal skin rug.  Gotta love a splash of whimsy! Afterall, it IS a room for little people, right?  Some fun is always good!


I love adding a dash of history in a room to ground the decor.  We all like to reminisce and love it when a piece has a story to tell.  In my baby's room, it is right inside of the shadow boxes.  These sweet little outfits were my husband's baby clothes.  How was he ever that small?  I can't wait to share them with our little girl one day when she is old enough to understand...and kudo's to my mother in law, for keeping his baby clothing in PRISTINE condition (no pressure! lol)

A BIG thank you to Remodelaholic for having me today!

Honey, you really made this work! Great job. I think that bolster pillow fabric is my favorite. Or is it the rug....hmmmm.....pillow, rug, pillow, rug.....

Maybe I need another cup of coffee.

Beautiful job! I love nurseries that don't look overly babyish--and you nailed it here!

That is one amazing nursery. Almost makes me wish I was having babies still.

What a beautiful nursery. I love the rug especially, and am quite fond of the suzani print you used on the bolster pillow.

I love the colors Shelli selected! Unexpected and fresh. Beautiful crib. Lucky baby girl to have such a talented mom.

How were the baby clothes mounted into the shadow boxes? I have a dress of my moms that I would like to display, but not sure how to do it safely. Thanks for any help!!
