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.

Sofia's Soft, Light Nursery with a Neutral Palette

This beautiful soft and light nursery for baby Sofia is nestled in a downtown Chicago skyscraper. The room needed to pull double duty as both a guest bedroom and a nursery. To make this work, designer Kate Jung of Noble Design Group edited the room down to the essentials and used some creative solutions, like converting a built-in desk into a changing table. Sofia's mom wanted both her guests and new baby girl to feel calm and at rest while in the room, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Kate accomplished this feeling so well with a lovely, soothing color palette of neutrals with subtle hints of pink. The gorgeous images of the space are from Simply by Suzy, who also shared some precious newborn photos with us. What an absolutely beautiful space for a beautiful little girl!
