A fact about me: I never outgrew my love of fairy tales. I have always been fascinated by fairies and mermaids and castles. As a little girl I collected fairy figurines, which have been sitting in bins in storage during the past 7 years of sports, dinosaurs and Iron Man. Well, not for much longer! When we found out we were having a little girl I immediately knew two things: fairies needed to be incorporated in some way, and…there must be pink.
Finishing Lyla’s nursery before she was born wasn’t a huge priority since I prefer to have my babies room-in for a while anyway. Now she’s almost seven months old (which flew right by), so we know we need to get going on it. We created a room for her out of our former master bedroom by framing out a hallway to our new master bedroom:
New Floorplan (except for the master bath- that’s still just a dream):
Our former master bedroom had a sponge paint treatment left over from the previous owners. One day I decided to paint it the pale pink color that I thought would be perfect for the space. Let’s just say… pepto bismol.
Since the Pink Paint Fiasco I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to try another (much paler) pink. I’m currently leaning that way, but I reserve the right to change my mind (again). Other things we’re waiting on: new windows, removing the baseboards, adding trim, possible ceiling treatment, closet organization, closet doors. We have a long way to go.
Without further ado, here is my inspiration for Lyla’s room. I’ve been planning this since basically childhood and purchasing things slowly for the past year since we found out we were having a girl. I already have gathered about 75% of the items below, and then probably a dozen other things I didn’t include on top of these things (including all of the fairy statues). I’m going to have to do some serious picking and choosing when it comes time to pull the room together. (links below contain some affiliate links)
Light and Feminine Nursery with Rustic Touches Inspiration:
1. / 2. / 3. / 4. / 5. / 6. (lightened by 50%) / 7. / 8. / 9. / 10. / 11. / 12. / 13. / 14. / 15. / 16. / 17. / 18. / 19.
I can’t wait to put this room together, and then to share it with you! Above all else it will be really nice to have a space for Lyla’s clothes and vast amounts of stuff. Sharing a dresser has not been my favorite experience! I’ll be back soon with a whole house progress report… it’s long overdue.
