Just because you have no budget constraints and can buy the 'best' of everything does not mean you will end up with a gorgeous nursery. Conversely, if you have a limited budget this does not mean you will end up with a 'budget looking' nursery. Personal items and unique touches give a room its personality and 'loved' feel. Much like this
nursery, profiled on Ohdeedoh. I am in love with the soft colours and gorgeous personal touches in Phoebe's baby room. This beautiful nursery was made on a very tight budget, using handmade bedding and art, as well as some unique Etsy finds. I just love the beautiful soft pink of the walls - it's almost shimmery.
It also sounds like this mum (Emily Schildhouse) and I share the same sentiments on nursery decor:
"Whenever anyone who hasn’t seen the room asks about the nursery, they always ask “What’s the theme?” I don’t know where everyone got the idea that a nursery has to have a cutesy baby theme with everything being so matchy-matchy. We just went with a general color scheme that allowed us to incorporate pieces that we really love."
My sentiments exactly, Emily!! My favourite piece from this room is this handmade mobile.....from a Martha Stewart tutorial (Lol...call me crazy but I am a martha fan!) I did a quick google and found the instructions here .
I think I will be making one of these for my daughters bedroom... she is almost 8 but it is so pretty and is very 'spring' like. Will let you know how I go.
Have a great week!
