Blushink : Sienna’s Nursery Reveal

When I found out I was having a girl… you can only begin to imagine my excitement. I would have my boy and now my girl, how perfect! Then my mind started going in a million directions as to what I would do for the nursery. Would I go with a theme (nah, seeing nursery themes are too babyish for my liking) or just a great color combo. Then I remembered I had purchased a pair of Handmade Joyfolie shoes and that sparked great color combos and ideas. I have to admit I did go back and forth on the color combo, and even 1 month before we started working on the nursery I dropped my original color combo of Coral, Mint, Pink, Gray, Navy and went towards Coral, Mint, Blush Pink and Gold.

My talented designer friend, Genevieve Ghaleb wanted to participate in making my dream baby girl nursery come true, and well with her great design flare combined with my DIY ideas, I don’t think we could of been a better “design” match. But then came the “crazy ideas” according to my husband. The first one… “We should paint the wood floors!”  This one was a tough one for him to swallow and he literally tried to make me change my mind a good 200 times, but when I told him it was what I wanted and there were no way I’d change my mind (blamed it on the pregnancy hormones)… he just followed along (and boy was I hoping it would look fabulous, otherwise I would have to live it down for the next 25 years!) The floors, as my friend Gen tried to explain to him, was the core to the nursery… I wanted to do something you didn’t really see in nurseries and painted floors was just that. I don’t think they could have been more perfect! The perfect shade of mint with some white and coral stripes…

Seeing the shoes were an important element to the room design, I wanted to make sure to highlight them and what better way then to frame them on the wall. I purchased some small frames at a thrift store, painted them gold and framed the fabric found in the crib and a quote I found to fit perfectly “Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life”

The first thing I purchased (apart from the shoes) was the blush pink waterfall curtain. I absolutely loved the ruffles and wanted that to be in the nursery. At that moment I hadn’t decided on the color scheme, but we made it work (yay!) Seeing it was the only ruffle element I had in the room, I decided to make my own coral ruffle lamp shade. (I will post a tutorial shortly)

You can say that this nursery is all about colours and textures. Ruffles, Bows and Doilies. I had blogged 2 years ago about a great wall feature with cupcake liners. I liked the texture part of it and figured we could probably make something similar with paper doilies. The outcome was better than I could of imagined! I love the white on white and putting the importance on the shapes and textures! I also framed some doilies in a mint colour backed frame to tie in with the feature wall.

I wanted to make my own mobile for baby girl. I’m not a fan of the ones out there and I knew I wanted to add more bows in the room. I had seen on Pinterest great use of embroidery hoops for some table decor and thought it would work really well for a mobile as well! So I painted the hoops gold, added fabric bows and hung it from the ceiling. I think it’s one of my favorite pieces of all in the nursery. So simple, yet so perfect!

I decided to print out fake book jackets that matched the nursery colors to put in the night table beside the glider. Sure they are fake (I mean there’s no way A Very Hungry Catepillar would be 300 pages long) but I think it looks adorable and eventually I will swap them with the real books.

I wanted to have a piece that would grow well with Sienna and I think the mirror is perfect for just that! Even though I’m not a fan of animals in nurseries, the coral elephant bank was just the perfect addition to the vintage dresser we found at a thrift store…. but the best part of all, I was able to put a vintage teacup my stepmother gave me a few years ago (that belonged to her mother) in the room. I think once she sees it, it will make her happy. I love when there’s a little history attached to a room decor.

I think I can go on and on… but you get the point!
So, what do you think? What’s your favorite part of the room?

Thank you Genevieve Ghaleb for following me and my over the top ideas! Working with you is not even work. (hope we get to do it again) Thank you Anne-Emilie Sayegh for taking pictures of Sienna’s nursery!

Room Details :

For those interested here is the cost break-down of the nursery decor, you should be able to find all the details below. I will be posting tutorials on some of the DIY projects I did for this room shortly.

  • Ruffled Table Lamp (DIY) :  already owned //  Base Bouclair,  Shade (Arstid) Ikea
  • Pink Glass Knobs : $30 // Look In The Attic
    =======================
    Furniture & Lighting : $245

  • Coral stripe (floor) : CIL Pink Chablis 30YR 68/127 W/B
    =======================
    Paint & Painting supplies : $325

Seeing we painted our wood floors, we needed to prep, sand, prime, paint and varnish, a big bulk of the nursery costs would have to be the paint. Sure bedding isn’t cheap either(especially for the little time we will be using it) but to compensate we made sure to choose furniture pieces (with the exception of the crib) that would grow well with Sienna. The total nursery cost $1061 a little over budget (I was aiming for $750) but considering everything we’ve done, I have no regrets!
