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.

Baby Helen and Her Pink and Navy Nautical Nursery

Pink and Navy Nautical Nursery

This darling nautical themed nursery belongs to adorable Helen, who was just five days old for this sweet session by J.A. Laub Photography. Helen's parents Kerry and Alan put a lot of love into planning her nursery, and they along with friends and family personally crafted many of the objects in the room. We love the clean white and gray base colors in the room that are accented with bold pink and navy elements. Read on for more details from Kerry about how the nursery design came together, then stop by the full gallery for all the photos!

"I created many different little aspects of the nursery along with my husband, Alan. Two of my favorite things about her nursery is the bedding and mobile. My dear friend Kristy made the beautiful quilt and my aunt Debbie made a matching crib skirt. The mobile was created by friends and family that all attended one of my baby showers. Each person created a 'poof' then Alan and I put together the mobile. In the center of the mobile are the poofs that Mommy and Daddy made. In the picture where we are reading a book, that is the book that I gave to Alan to tell him that we were going to have a baby. Two of our childhood toys are waiting on the bookshelf for her to grow big enough to play with them. We are thrilled to finally have our sweet girl."
