What was your inspiration for this nursery design?

Once I found out I was pregnant, I began by looking through Pinterest, magazines, & blogs for nursery inspiration. I quickly noticed that I was gravitating towards anything with a nod to a travel or nautical vibe. This was not surprising, as I’m a huge fan of that calming ‘Hamptons’ coastal style. My husband’s Lebanese heritage also inspired me to include a couple of pieces that incorporated his Middle Eastern culture as well. Since we didn’t want a room that was too theme specific, we tried to pull all of these elements together & combine them into one cohesive nursery. We opted for a soothing neutral pallet, where we incorporated shades of white, blue, gray, metallic, & natural wood tones.

I detailed the nursery design process on my blog if anyone wants more details on any of the projects or decor

Describe the process of putting the nursery together.

First, I created a vision board which allowed me to visualize the space better & create a game plan. There are several DIY projects throughout the nursery, both large & small. We started with the major projects first, including the closet organizer install, the board & batten accent wall, the painting, & the star ceiling decals. The board & batten wall was by far the largest DIY project, but was still surprisingly simple & inexpensive to complete. My dad & I got the boards up in one evening, then puttied & painted the next day. It completely changed the look of the room & gave it more character. Once the major tasks were completed, I started on the accent pieces & décor. Here’s a rundown of the main projects: Reclaimed Barn Wood Shelves: I found some beautiful old barn wood from a seller on Craigslist & paired it with some inexpensive IKEA brackets to create some custom shelving. Gallery Wall: This wall is full of little DIY projects I worked on while I was pregnant. I traced & painted the world map onto a cork board & framed it with an old frame that was made by my great-grandpa. The piece with Sami’s name in Arabic script was a joint effort by my husband & I – he drew it out for me & I painted it onto a plain white canvas. The horseshoe crab was a quick DIY too – I spray painted an old shell that had been in my shell collection for years. I displayed it in a shadow box, using a textured placemat for the matting. I also used a square shadowbox to frame a collection of medals that belonged to my grandpa. Lastly, I created the “and baby makes 3” print on PicMonkey & printed it at home – super easy! Marquee Star Clock & Night Light: I bought the metal star while it was on sale @ Michael’s & then added a clock kit to the center to create a unique night light. Crib Skirt: I took a store bought crib skirt & simply ironed on some gross grain ribbon – way more affordable than the one I had been eyeing at Pottery Barn.

    I am working on a couple of quilts right now… one hand pieced Jinny Beyer quilt in colors I love, and one that I need to set into a frame for hand quilting. I love Stonehenge Woodland… the entire line. But I love the greys/blacks/whites of one of those sublines.

    Fraudais que je relise le bouquin une seconde fois, la première pensée que j’avais eue en lisant ce livre c’était que ça faisais “trop fiction”N’empêche que c’est l’un des meilleurs livre que j’ai lu.

    My last statement regarding marijuana and schizophrenia was directed at Janet, and not this article. Though I do feel the overuse and abuse of anything (really anything, food, the gym, sex, anything…) has serious detrimental effects. Things you put in your body just have a more measurable effect than most things

  5. Glad to hear you're on the mend and out of the hospital.I agree on your viewpoint, RuneE. I understand the novelist, Mr. Mankell, is safe and on his way home to Norway.
