Before I got pregnant, I purchased this pair of Joyfolie shoes. Yes, I wasn’t pregnant, nor do I have a girl but they were beyond adorable, 1 of a kind and I was able to snag them. I told myself if I got pregnant the second time around and had a girl it would be perfect, and well… if I had a boy, I have a niece who would look amazing in these.
When I got them, they were even prettier in person and I started dreaming of decorating a baby girl nursery using those shoes as an inspiration. Beige, Browns, Reds and Mint… all vintage style. I would purchase a red vintage gumball machine, I actually found the fabric online and would plan the bedding accordingly (clearly not all in that fabric, but maybe some throw pillows etc.) I was even thinking of framing the shoes (until baby girl could wear them) as a art piece for the room. The only thing I couldn’t quite figure out is my glider. I have a beautiful gray houndstooth glider which clearly would clash with my vision. Being the girly girl I am and wanting everything to match it really bothered me even more so now that I am having a girl. So I decided to switch my plans.
Inspiration #2 for my new nursery. These beautiful mint shoes, again from Joyfolie. I love the idea of mint in a baby’s girl room and these shoes really are beautiful. The fabric, the embellishment all so very dainty and I see would fit perfectly with my vision of what baby girl would look like.
Clearly mint is a reoccurring color and one I love for a girls nursery combined that with grays, blush pinks, corals, and steel blue. Yes its very uncommon for a nursery but the combo is beyond pretty. Just look at this BEAUTIFUL collage… it’s exactly what I envision for my nursery palette.
I’ve repeated it over and over that I’m not a baby theme lover. Theme as in classic baby themes : butterflies, animals, Disney Characters etc. So creating something unique, not too theme-ish will be quite the challenge, but I love when 1 thing sparks a waterfall of ideas. (I’m still waiting for that to happen) but I’m sure it will … soon.
Have you ever designed a room (nursery or other) using inspiration in an unexpected place?
