I knew I was having a girl but didn’t want to go down the pink route. I was inspired by the bright green and white colors and floral imagery of a certain bubbly wine, so I used that as my base and added brown to dampen the effect.
Here are the before photos:
And here are the after photos. I want to mention that I worked for this company at the time, so I had access to some branded materials. But I didn’t want bottles of Champagne all over the nursery either!
I painted most of the room green and one wall brown to balance it out. There was an existing closet so I used 2 patterened banners and had my mom sew fabric to the bottom to achieve the correct length. I ordered green valances and crib bedding from Carousel Designs. And put up floating IKEA shelves for books and toys.
I just loved the Tord Boontje lamp and thought it fit well with the floral theme.
I took some creative liberties with the floral motif and had a vinyl sticker printed with the baby’s name.
Continuing around the room…
And finally the crib furniture and brown feature wall with floral motif. I used an “avocado”-type lampshade for the ceiling fan.
Yes, lime green is a bold choice for any room but I think it made this room more cheery and exciting for the baby!
