Abby's Butterfly Nursery Decor
Watercolor Painting that Inspired Abby's Butterfly Nursery Theme
Abby's Butterfly was inspired by my watercolor paintings. Our butterfly nursery ideas are designed to feel as if you are lying in the grass looking up at a tree and flowers since I thought that our baby girl would enjoy the view from her crib.SEE MORE HERE
The butterfly nursery theme was continued throughout the room by adding other touches of nature.
The photograph of the pair of doves was a gift from my cousin. The butterfly crib mobile was purchased from Pottery Barn and the bedding is from the Jo Jo Designs Eyelet Crib Bedding Collection.
It was important for me to keep the mobile and bedding white because anything more colorful would compete with the mural that we chose to be the decorative focal point of Abby's butterfly nursery decor.
The pressed flowers that decorate the walls were picked shortly before Abby was born. I made the piece that says Abby’s name.
The baby's crib is made by Cache and the rest of the nursery furniture is "recycled". The changing table was given to us by a friend and the rest of the pieces were family pieces that were handed down. I ordered the ottoman and the pad for the rocking chair from a website online and then sewed a small pillow with the same fabric I covered the ottoman with.
It was very meaningful for us to be able to use antiques that came from loved ones as part of Abby's butterfly nursery decor
. For example, the cradle with the stuffed animals in it was mine when I was a baby, the vanity belonged to my mom's aunt and was restored by my dad. I love mixing modern furniture with antiques.
The walls of the Abby's nursery are painted pale pink with a burgundy accent wall. My husband put down the wood floor. He bought one box of wood with every paycheck until he had enough.
