Samantha’s design inspiration:
I designed this nursery for my baby girl Emerson Rose. She is the first girl after three boys, so naturally I wanted an ultra-feminine room without being too pink. I fell in love with the wall color and used pink to accent the room; my mom made the crib skirt and helped me make the buntings on the windows. I made or painted almost everything else in the room. I think the final result is a soft, girly room that is fit for a princess—which is exactly what she is at only six weeks old!
What the designers from Little Crown Interiors had to say:
This nursery is just downright beautiful. We love balance of the unexpected grey-blue walls with the traditional, shabby chic pinks and whites. Between the cozy chair, the shaggy raggy rug and the sheer amount of softly sweet textiles, there's enough squishy, yummy, goodness in this room to ensure that this mom and her little angel will create wonderful, lasting childhood memories. One look at this nursery, and we immediately knew that these gals would have some absolutely amazing times in this space (as long as big brothers keep their hands to themselves!!).
Nursery design tip:
Love the adorable "E" inside of the hand-painted decorative frame? We highly recommend checking out WeeMonograms.com. Then, borrow Samantha's idea: put your monogram in a fabulous frame.
