Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Ellis' Tranquil and Pretty Nursery

Earlier today, we shared the maternity session of April Peet, talented floral designer of April Flowers, and now the loveliness continues with this pretty nursery April created for baby Ellis. With a soft, light palette of pale pink, peach, and aqua, the space has a tranquility and delicate femininity we love. April utilized thrift store finds, homemade pieces, and already owned items, which creates a lot of warmth while also making this a budget-friendly room. For example, the darling mobile was created from April's baby shower decorations. There are also some new pieces with big impact, like those Narnia prints from Lay Baby Lay (the designer from one of our favorite nursery inspiration sites of the same name!). In fact, it looks like a lot of inspiration likely came from the lovely nursery design of Vivi Charles, daughter of Lay Baby Lay designer, Joni.
