C’s Nursery Reveal

Unlike with Avery’s nursery I had no idea where to start with C’s nursery. With Avery I had a piece of art that drove the nursery design and I knew I wanted something simple, modern and that she could grow into. This time around it took awhile to find that one piece that spurred on the nursery design.

And that piece is, C’s crib sheets:


I loved the print and colours right away, not to mention it made for an easy design since the tribal theme and colours are in right now.

My vision was not tribal though, more natural and simple.  I had planned to stick with the navy and peach as accent colours but the navy in the sheet is very dark and hard to match. But then mint green was easy. Mint green and peach soon became the accent colours.




All the furniture you will recognize from Avery’s nursery, the crib, side table, dresser and rocking chair – made it a lot easier reusing these things.

I only had two DIYs for the nursery, both were really easy and I am pretty happy with how they turned out. This arrow:

And the picture frame with the ultrasound photos.

The artwork above the arrow was also off of Etsy.

Art. This was tough! I wanted something that went with the nursery but was not too matchy.

I purchased these two tribal animal prints off of Etsy and knew I wanted a wood pallet sign as well and just the person to make one…my Mom!


The only thing missing is the mobile I ordered off Etsy, I guess it takes up to 10 weeks to get it, so  it still might be May before I see it. Here is the one I got.

I am pretty happy with how it turned out and like Avery’s I think it is a room C can grow into for the next few years with little updating.

      She has it on a wire, but they key is that the wire is on a board on the back that not on the sign itself – if that makes sense. This helps it hang evenly and not at an angle out. Hard to explain!

    I love it!! Where did you find the crib sheet? So sweet. I'm so not good with design and decorating but every time I see posts like this I want to redo Liam's room (and basically my entire condo).

      Thank you! Etsy, of course – it was not cheap but I barely spent any money on her room since all the furniture I had so I justified it ($70). I am not great at it either and if it was not for Pinterest I would be lost lol.

    Love it!!! I can't believe it will take 10 weeks for that mobile!!! It doesn't look that complicated!!! Love how light and airy her room is!!! I'm excited to pick out wall art for the nursery or make some with my Cricut, once I know the gender! I will add pink and hold if it's a girl or navy blue if it's a boy!!

      Thank you! I know, right? Oh well, it will be here one day! i am really happy with how it turned out. I wanted to have more navy in her room, I really like it as an accent colour with lighter colours.

    Gorgeous!!! I love the art. My kids' rooms are so boring. Swede hardly ever spends time in hers except for sleeping through and Abel hasn't actually moved into his yet. Maybe a summer project to decorate a little… If I'm feeling ambitious!

      Thank you!! I enjoy decorating but it does not come natural to me so maybe I like the challenge lol. I just start with one key piece, find colours and go from there.

    It's beautiful! I love how bright and simple it is, yet still really cozy. That mobile is adorable, but 10 weeks?! Is she driving it to you? haha! 😉 That laundry hamper looks neat too – where is it from?
