It’s Thanksgiving week—and when I reflect on what I am most thankful for, my daughter Viviana is VERY high on that list. So I thought I’d share her nursery with all of you.
It took me a long time to decide what I wanted the nursery to look like, but one thing I knew I didn’t want- one of of those super cheesy trendy baby rooms. I wanted it to be girly, but a little different than what everyone else does. Instead of hitting Pottery Barn for every piece of furniture and detail, I sourced the ideas and items from all over the place. It turned out to my exact liking!
I built the room around a pure silk Persian flora and fauna rug that is one of my prized possessions from Afghanistan. When I was buying the rug, I never envisioned it would eventually be the statement piece in my future daughter’s room. I absolutely adore the colors in it for a girl’s room – a pinky peach, a deep maroon, a sunny yellow, taupe, and minty green. While my husband swears that the walls are pink, I know that they are actually Fruit Shake, a Benjamin Moore color I discovered in my Elle Décor magazine, and couldn’t resist! I mixed this color with rich gold accents to make it a little bit more grown up.
The crib is indeed Pottery Barn-a debacle the original crib I ordered from Restoration Hardware, led me to this one. I did get the gold mirror above her crib from Restoration Hardware.
About the lighting…after several purchases, that didn’t work out, I landed on this vintage German chandelier I found on eBay. When I (I mean my dad and hubby) finally got it up and working, and it fit perfectly in the room, I knew it was the one.
Other details in the room include the curtains which are pure white panels with ball fringe from Country Curtains. The picture frames with adorable photos of Vivi are hung from the ceiling with old curb chain…And the wooden rocking horse was passed down from Jason’s mom– it was the absolute perfect finishing touch to the room!
Lots of Love,
