I am so so so so excited to finally share with you that Scarlett’s nursery is featured on Style Me Pretty, right this very second. You may remember sometime last year, our home and my office was featured on Style Me Pretty as well, and when the fabulous ladies at Style Me Pretty Living asked if I would be interested in sharing our then baby-girl-to-be’s upcoming nursery, I practically sang (and trust me, no one wants that.) So I’ll spare you the singing and get on with the pictures.
By the way, these are a few of my favorites; be sure to head over to Style Me Pretty for the full feature.
The paper flowers by Lovelyfest Goods above Scarlett’s crib are still one of her favorite features in the room. She stares up at them and sings to them and its just darling. Huge props to her Daddy for spending hours placing them one by one for me.
I worked on incorporating little touches of black here and there trying hard not to allow it to look too harsh for a little girl’s nursery.
From the Style Me Pretty feature:
I knew from the start that I wanted something neutral, soft, and dreamy, with pops of black, gold, and subtle hints of very pale pink. I tried to be wary of keeping the design from getting too black (because goodness knows if I could paint the world in black, I would … or at the very least, throw a black leather jacket on everyone.) And black was a non-negotiable when I discovered the black-spotted crib sheets and the black and gold clothing rack. Keeping the room light and fun was a must, because a little girl was going to live in and love that room. The more modern white crib, dresser, and bookcase lent itself to a more playful space. I also always wanted the room to have a notable French vibe, something very Parisian and chic, with vintage touches. That was all mommy. I knew that travel and great vintage-inspired pieces had to find their way into the mix, and I figured roses would be the feminine flower touch of choice. The real trick was fitting everything into the very tiny former “office” without it feeling too overcrowded.
Today, Scarlett’s nursery is ever a work in progress. We’re always adding fun and quirky touches, and as she gets older, it’s toy central. We’re loving every second of it.
