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.

Scarlett's Gray and Pink Nursery

Scarlett's mom, Kristin, wanted her baby's nursery to feel soft, relaxing, and feminine. She steered clear from your typical "baby themes" and instead decorated it with items she loved. Many of the items she actually already had around the home, like the rocking chair and night stand that she simply spray painted white to match. She also made sure there were plenty of books on hand for Scarlett. Kristin also contributed to this beautiful pink and gray nursery with some lovely DIY projects, including the Keep Calm and Dream On print, alphabet print, and bunting print. She also made the lovely butterfly mobile, and shared with us how she did it (instructions at the end of the post below!). Kristin Rogers Photography captured these gorgeous images of the space, along with some super sweet newborn and family shots. You can see more from this session in the full gallery.

DIY Mobile Instructions
"For the mobile, I purchased 3 wooden embroidery hoops, a small, medium, and large size. Using just the inner hoops, I drilled holes on each side of them and inserted a wooden dowel through each of them, holding them all together. I then glued the dowel In place with wood glue and spray painted it white. Using 2 different size butterfly paper punches, I punched a bunch of butterflies out on white cardstock paper. I poked a hole through the middle of each butterfly using a pin and strung them on clear jewelry string tying a knot after each butterfly to hold in place. Then I added strings of butterflies until it looked full. I tied another piece of clear jewelry string on each side of the embroidery hoop and then hung it from the ceiling."
