The Money Pit Series: designing a second nursery

We more or less had a blank canvas to work with in designing Dos' nursery. Save for some wretched window treatments...that's a good thing. The best part about our bedrooms is the copious sunlight that shines through everyday. As you can see, the nursery was in a state of disarray for quite some time. {and yes, blue carpet will be a 2013 project}

Well, it's finally in order. And I have to say, I love the color palette. In fact, this nursery came together so nicely that I almost feel like I need to add more to Olivia's! All of the elephant trinkets are from Dos' Aunt out West. She collected and refurbished different elephant items over the summer at various flea markets. We love them because of the vintage quality they add to the room. We still need to address the curtain situation and develop a gallery wall but all in all - we are ready to roll!

  1. Very very nice, darling! I love the natural light and also the elephant details. :D GOrgeous! xoxo

  2. That elephant lamp is perfection!! I love the colors too. ;-)

  3. I'm completely in love with the color palette! What a sweet sunny room, Dos is sure to love it! I actually like the curtains but I'm sure whatever you have in mind is swell as well. Too bad Z Gallerie doesn't make an elephant head like these, I can totally see that in the gallery wall. (We have the deer in ours :) http://www.zgallerie.com/p-8948-deer-head-small-1575.aspx
