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.

Parker's Sweet, Girly Nursery in Pink, Gold, and Gray

Parker's Nursery

With it's fun styling and whimsical spirit, this girly nursery designed by Ashley Rose had me at hello! Ashley's first child was an adorable little boy (see his nursery here!), so with a baby girl on the way, she had fun doing something different and decidedly GIRL. Ashley wanted the space to have a fun, sweet vibe and avoid coming off as baby-ish. She found inspiration for the room in Kate Spade and also a bit of Anthropologie, using glitter along with woodsy and vintage pieces.

Lots of DIY and personal touches fill the space, including the clever frame holding headbands and bows (stealing this idea!), the glittering "Yeah Baby" sign, and the inventive hanging closet branch. One cute, custom touch is that the dresser drawers were hand painted by a friend with words to describe their contents: "play" for casual clothes, "twirl" for dresses, and "snooze" for jammies. She also included some little British touches here and there to play off her baby's name: Parker London Rose. To see much more of this darling nursery, stop by the full gallery!

(If you're wondering where the crib is, that will be moved in later as needed, as the glider in the photos now resides in the living room. Right now, the room has a bed for Ashley's mom's visits.)
