After having 2 boys, I didn’t mind a little pink in my life. But not too much pink. Or frill. Luckily my daughter loves pink, purple, fancy….and fun and quirky. I like that. She likes it all and most of all, likes to be bold. I took that and tried to mix it in with the soft natured personality of her baby sister.
I took a little bit of each and added a touch of minimalism- I am on this declutter phase thanks to the KonMari method. So instead of more stuff I just tried to add fun and bold colors. I didn’t want to impose too much of my style on their carefree personalities so I tried to design a few items that meshed the two…or three together. I think the key is just to focus on similar colors. I used a lot of whites to offset the colorful patterns and colors.

I want to thank the wonderful companies who graciously donated items to complete this nursery:
QuickZip sheets are awesome. We have the velour top one on this toddler bed for that extra warmth during the colder months. My daughter is in a toddler bed, which uses a crib mattress, which makes it easy to interchange with my baby’s crib sheets. It is so easy to change the sheets when all you have to do is unzip. We have them for each of the kids’ beds. They really are the best sheets for bunk beds and cribs you know, when the sides are hard to get to?! My boys have bunk beds and changing sheets is never fun but this makes it easier!
Stitched is a great way to customize quilts without actually having to cut out squares and sew them on your own. You can pick a template or make up your own. I made up my own pattern using the colors in the girls room. I love it so much- I just don’t have time to make a quilt so this is the next best thing. And the backing is that minky fabric that is so so soft.
LatterDay Home has such beautiful art to hang throughout the house. I fell in love with this whimsical and youthful Jesus print.
Little Wife Power House has beautiful modern designs for kids rooms. This happy bird print (I just love our last name!) is just perfect for my baby girl. She is so smiley and loves birds.
Belle Pivoine is an amazing illustrator. I want everything in her shop. She illustrated this beautiful picture of Adelle and it came in such pretty packaging. I need to get one for Madeleine now!
Ubbi is the nicest, most effective and best diaper pail out there. It has a great design, a lock so kids can’t open it and it really really does keep the stink in. Another thing I like about this is that you can use your own trash bags.
The First Years sound machine plays white noise as well as music from the machine or from your iphone/ipod, etc. Adelle loves it and it helps her go to sleep, especially during nap time. I think the silence makes her nervous….we do have a full house so it is understandable!
Levana video monitors are a game changer. I didn’t have a video monitor before and would try to check on my kids without waking them up- fail. I have one in the nursery and one in the playroom. It also has a speaker system so you can talk through the monitor- I use it as an intercom system to diffuse any arguments or call them up for dinner.
