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.

Hadley's Serene and Elegant Nursery

Baby Hadley's parents set out to create a serene space for their darling little girl that was simple but elegant. They opted for a neutral color palette of whites, creams, ivories and just a few splashes of pale pink. We are swooning over the light and delicate femininity that abounds in this room. Highlights include a gorgeous mirrored changing table/dresser from Horchow, a beautiful chandelier from Pottery Barn Kids, and the most darling white blocks with gold lettering spelling out Hadley's name from Bosheree on Etsy. One of the sweetest touches in the room is the framed print of "You are my Sunshine" sheet music, inspired by a childhood memory of Hadley's mom: "One of my fondest memories was my father singing 'You are my Sunshine' to me before bedtime every night. I wanted to pass along this wonderful memory with my little one as well as show my father how much it meant to me." Perfect!

These lovely images were all captured by Rustic White Photography, who also sent us some adorable portraits of Hadley with her parents. We couldn't resist sharing--she is too cute! You can see more of both this elegant nursery and the portrait session over in the full gallery, so be sure to stop by before you go!
