Day 900's nursery ideas
Perhaps you've heard, but sweet blog friend Brooke is going to be welcoming a little one to her family and has put out the call for nursery ideas. So here goes!
When I saw the top photo, I instantly thought of Brooke. All of the walls in her home are Monterey White by Benjamin Moore, and she likes to use neutral colors and cool vintage accessories. She could recreate this room (like she needs my help -- she's the designer!) with a cute rug from Dash & Albert, pretty linens from Serena & Lily, and a crib painted blue.
This is along the same lines. A little architectural salvage and some sweet florals, and voila! Instant Windsor Smith.
I believe Brooke is planning to keep the gender a surprise, but I could resist including some inspiration for a girly nursery, too. I love the combination of pale, sort-of shell pink and gray, like in Martha Stewart's guest cottage.
Add some jolts of hot pink, and the room can grow up with baby girl (image from Cote de Texas). Congratulations again, Brooke! And I know you'll come up with something lovely!
