A Floral Nursery


Before we even began trying for a baby I was already dreaming of decorating a nursery for our future little guy or gal. We of course didn’t care what the gender was as all we wanted was for our baby to be healthy, but I myself am quite the girlie girl and was not so secretly hoping for a little girl! I’ve had my eye on this Anthropologie peony wallpaper since I caught sight of it on Pinterest and Instagram almost 2 years ago. Each time I saw it pop up I would save the picture or pin it, in hopes of getting the chance to use it one day for my own baby girl.

When we found out we were expecting I created 3 inspiration boards, one for both genders as well as a gender neutral one in case we chose not to find out the sex. Before becoming pregnant I often thought I would have a boy first, but once I became pregnant I instantly had a feeling that I was carrying a girl. My hubby and I couldn’t resist knowing the gender and so we made the decision at 20 weeks to find out. Once we knew it was a girl I was off and running to create a peony wallpaper inspired nursery filled with coral and mint for both my future babe and I to enjoy. I instantly knew I wanted to use the Anthropologie wallpaper but was fearful it would be overpowering so I opted to do only one feature wall of it behind the crib. I kept everything else in the room fairly neutral in order to let the wallpaper really be the star of the show. I then of course added my touches of gold, which were perfectly appropriate for a baby girl and are carried throughout the rest of our home.

I absolutely love home decor and have always enjoyed decorating our homes, but creating this room in preparation for our babe was even more special! Every item was picked with care and each print and saying was designed with love. I am so happy with how it came together; it’s the perfect mix of white and gold with a little splash of colour. I enjoyed this process so much that I am truly sad it’s over and am already looking forward to doing it all over again for baby #2!

  1. Beautiful Nursery! Can you remember what brand of spray paint you used on your Ikea shelves? They appear to be the EKBY OSTEN/EKBY VALTER shelves, right? Thanks so much!


  2. Currently on the hunt for nursery inspiration… I absolutely LOVE this! I would have never thought to have done a gallery wall in a kids room but this is awesome.


  3. Can you tell me the measurements of the wall you wallpapered? I’m curious how many rolls you needed for the size…my wall looks similar in size. We also have a similar layout to our nursery and I love how you have the furniture arranged!
