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.

Claire's Soft, Lovely Nursery

Photographer Gladys Lara approached Irene Lovett of designstILes for some nursery design help for baby Claire's nursery when her vision for the space wasn't coming to life as she imagined. Gladys had already found and purchased most of the major pieces in the room, but wanted some help making it all feel more complete. Irene knew after viewing Gladys' soft, romantic photography aesthetic that Claire's nursery should have that same lovely feeling. With a light, fresh palette of pale yellow, light green, and touches of pink, the space is pretty and happy, but not too girly. The Vanuatu Twilight Wallpaper by Anthropologie makes for a gorgeous feature wall, while a furry stool from Furbish brings in some fun. Even the closet looks fabulous with a striped wall backdrop. To see all of the photos of Claire's soft, feminine nursery, stop by the full gallery.
