Is there anything sweeter, or more sentimental then decorating a nursery for a new baby? In all my homes, my baby rooms will always be the most special to me. The 9 (long!) months you wait for the arrival baby are the perfect time to create a special place for the newest member of your family.

There are so many tools out there now that can help with this huge decision–colors, decor, theme, gender nuetral? (or pink or blue?) The inspiration is just endless. Oh to have had Pinterest back when I was planning a nursery…

Nursery Designed by Windsor Smith

This nursery, by Windsor Smith, is one of my all time favorites. It must have been designed for twins, and it’s perfection.

Restoration Hardware Baby & Child has taken sophisticated baby rooms to the next level, I often find items in this catalog that inspire decor in other rooms of my house. The luck of a baby to sleep in such an elegant space.

Do you remember this gorgeous nursery we featured last fall? What I love is how timeless this room is. It will be perfect for their daughter until she goes to college.

Terry and I both recently “oohed & ahhhed” over this sweet baby girl nursery created on the Style Network show The Amandas…

As I decorated my three rooms, the thing I always struggled with was choosing a paint color. My husband swears it’s a “being pregnant” thing but the perfect paint color was ALWAYS wrong when it went on the wall…my first son’s nursery was more “periwinkle” then blue (very masculine, huh?) and my second son’s room was much more “apple green” then light green. We lived with it, but my perfectionist self would have preferred the color to be closer to what I hoped for.

What is your dream nursery? Are you as sentimental about those rooms as I am?

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I actually purchased the pink crib bedding from Restoration Hardware for my daughter. Though it’s not nearly as pink as pictured in the catalog, it’s still perfection. I love it.
