A neighbor/friend of mine shared this nursery inspiration picture with me. I don't where she found it, so I can't credit it.
I really like how sophisticated it feels and immediately offered to help her replicate the room for her baby girl. After spending some time surfing the web and Pinterest, I put together the following "inspired by"design board.
1. Rug ~ West Elm ($249 for 5X8)
This is pretty close to the inspiration photo. I like the lines a bit better for a baby girl's room.
2. Roman Shades ~ JC Penney ($15 to $50)
These shades are a bargain. I would dress them up by trimming them with grey, wide grosgrain ribbon.
3. Sconces ~ Crate and Barrel ($99.95 each)
I would hang these on either side of the crib. If baby ever out grows her sophisticated room, these could easily be incorporated into another room in the house.
4. Throw Pillow Covers ~ Etsy ($35 for 2)
5. Sheep Skin ~ Ikea ($29.99)
6. Table lamp ~ Crate and Barrel ($329)
Definitely the splurge item! I just couldn't resist the shape and color. We may be able to find and fix up a thrifted lamp with a similar cool shape.
7. Jonathan Adler Bookends ~ All Modern ($150 for the pair)
Another splurge item but they will probably be one of those things that baby girl still has with her in her first apartment.
8. Alphabet Print ~ Society6 ($17)
9. Pouf ~ Etsy ($95)
I adore the little bench in the inspiration room, but I wanted something softer for this room. This Ikat pouf could not be more perfect.
10. Fabric for Crib Skirt ~ Fabric.com ($10.98 per yard x 2 for skirt)
This fabric feels a lot like the inspiration fabric and works well with all of the colors in the art and room accents.
11. Paint ~ Benjamin Moore Graphite
12. Modern Art ~ Etsy ($35)
This painting is pretty small and won't really work in the room. Given the reasonable price, the artist would probably be willing to do something on commission in a larger size for a good price.
Something similar could also be DIY-ed.
13. Dachshund Pillow ~ All Modern ($45)
I just love the shape and colors of this pillow. It adds a playful element to the sophisticated style of the room.
Have you ever tried to replicate a room in a book or magazine? Were you happy with the way it turned out?
