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.

Emma's Modern Eclectic Nursery

Emma's nursery, beautifully designed by parents Jenny and Drew with photos by Mary Rosenbaum Photography, is bursting with modern, eclectic style. They mixed family heirlooms, repurposed thrift store finds, handmade items, and other retail objects to complete this fun, colorful look. See the list at the bottom of the post to see where they sourced specific items. Emma now has a nursery that is fresh and stylish, but that is also uniquely hers with pieces from her own family history. I am smitten!
