Clara's digs.

When I found out I was having a girl, I immediately started scouring Pinterest for nursery decorating ideas. I'm a big fan of simplicity and cleanliness when it comes to decorating any space, but it seems especially appropriate for a new baby who needs calmness and peace.

Since we moved the big kids into the same room and needed to redecorate their room in a gender-neutral theme, I knew I wouldn't have the money for a total nursery overhaul, too. I planned to use all the baby furniture we already had, but I also wanted to freshen it up a little for Clara. I gave myself a small budget and went to town. Here's the finished product:

Old: Crib, glider, IKEA Lack side table (white), celadon green curtains (from Audrey's room), floral print rug

Crib sheet and dust ruffle, handmade quilts from friends (hanging on glider and crib), IKEA frame, pink glittery C monogram (Hobby Lobby), IKEA framed artwork, glittery curtain ties (I made them myself!)

Here's a view of the other side of the room. As you can see, I moved quite a few items over from Audrey's old room since she and Carson now share a more gender-neutral room.

Old: Changing table/dresser combo, framed temple drawing from Pics-O-Andrea, silk tulips, Ikea flower lamp, IKEA small table lamp

New: Pink minky dot changing pad cover, IKEA Roman numeral clock

I chose to mix shades of green and pink with various patterns and mediums to make her room interesting. I also added a little sparkle this time -- in the form of glitter, of course.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I love going into Clara's room and I feel like it suits her personality so perfectly. Easy-going and cheerful, just like my sweet babe.


  1. It's darling! You're such a sweet mom! We need to have a chat some day. I have so many questions for you

  2. It's so cute! I'm in love with that changing table!


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
