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.

Kenley's Modern, Feminine Nursery in Coral and Gray

Lindsay wanted to create a space for her baby girl Kenley that was feminine, but not in the traditional pastel pink kind of way. Instead, Lindsay opted for a more modern color palette of coral and gray and brought in different patterns and textures for more visual interest. When Lindsay found the bedding with those adorable little chicks, it all started to come together. She was also inspired by the Rifle Paper Co. Botanical Wall Calendar, which added to the femininity in the room. For even more floral, girly goodness, Lindsay found the perfect stencil on Etsy for the wall, and the end result looks like a gorgeous wallpaper (but without the hefty price tag!).

There are also some very clever pieces that not only add to the unique character of the room, but were quite a steal:
-The changing table was actually left at their home by the previous owners. They gave it new life with a few coats of white paint and new hardware.
-The sidetable bookshelf: "My sister-in-law found the base for the bookshelf, an old cable spool, at a local salvage yard and snagged it for me. I was so excited because those suckers are getting hard to find! I had my husband add shelves and paint it based on some ideas I found on Pinterest. The front is perfect for displaying Kenley’s little books and toys, and I can hide my nursing/pumping supplies in the back."
-The medicine cabinet: This was another find from the same salvage yard, and now wipes, creams, and all the other baby essentials are ready to grab in one convenient spot.

Kristen Honeycutt Photo Co. captured all of these beautiful images, including the precious shots of Kenley herself, who could not be any cuter! Stop by the full gallery to see more of this pretty space and darling Kenley.
