Pale Pink Little Girl Nursery

I can’t believe Eleanor’s nursery is finished. I used to wonder what my first childs nursery would look like. I still pinch myself that this is where I am in my life. The process was much different than I expected. I always thought it would be a fun and easy little project to prepare for my first child. However, this little room almost sent me to an early death. It was a combination of stressful, exciting and did I mention stressful! I have a completely new respect for any interior designer! Your job is H.A.R.D! I wanted the space to be a mix of classic, a touch of modern, and elements fun. My original idea was to wallpaper the room but upon deciding to potentially move in the Spring, the financial cost of the actual wallpaper and instillation did not make sense. I then moved to curtains, but again, with the cost of fabric and hiring someone to make them, with approximately 8 months left in this house, didn’t make sense either. So, simple and easy is where I left it!

The space is very calming in person. I find myself, my two dogs, and my husband will just go in there to relax. I really think it is the paint color that helps with the soothing. I went through numerous options and finally settled on the Benjamin Moore ‘Gentle Butterfly’. It is exactly what I wanted: light-pink, calming and classic. I decided to paint the walls and ceiling with it so the white trim would really pop. I think, with the white chandelier, it turned out perfectly!

I always love the use of acrylic pieces in a room as they fill the space without over-cluttering the room with large pieces. Since the room isn’t overly large I knew I would have a few acrylic pieces and the mix of the bookshelf, wall shelving, and frame fit perfectly. As for the rest of the space, I kept things pretty neutral. The Nursery Works rocker, Crib, and changing table were all purchased to balance out the wall-to-wall pink. One of the last things I did was to add a few personal touches. The bear on the wall above the crib is the bear I toted around everywhere with me as a child. And the monogrammed crib sheet is such a sweet way to add personalization to the room.  Overall I am really pleased with how it turned. I can’t wait to bring her home and watch her grow in this room (at least for the next 8 months).

  1. Where did you get the acrylic bookshelf? I didn’t see a source listed, but love it!
    Also – were the acrylic feet added to the crib after the photos? It looks like they are on the changing table but not the crib.
    Such a gorgeous nursery, I’m having a girl as well and loving all the pink!

    1. Congratulations on your baby girl! All the pink is so fun! 🙂

      I can’t believe I forgot the bookshelf. I added it now (and included a lower priced option too).
      And THANK YOU for seeing the changing table mistake! Can you tell I have major pregnancy brain! Yes, you are correct. I changed the feet of the pottery barn changing table but not the crib! I thought the acrylic made it a little more update!
      Let me know if you need anything! I hope you have fun decorating for your little girl! xx

  2. Mary, This just makes me so happy to see your very beautiful and calm nursery for Eleanor. You did such an amazing job and can’t wait to see Miss Eleanor dressed in all of her finery. You are going to be the most wonderful mama and I know you and Brice can’t wait to meet her. I am so excited for you two travelers!!! I hope you don’t mind but I shared your blog on my post in case anyone needs some inspiration. Praying for you and and can’t wait to meet precious Eleanor and introduce her to Sloan. By the way you looked stunning yesterday at Cathy’s. You are one classy lady!! Love you and I am so very thankful that you are my friend. XO Debby FROG
