What Was the Primary Inspiration for Zoey's Room Design?
We were aware that decorating a baby girl's nursery requires many yards of fabric. For this reason, making a fabric selection was where we got started. After looking at many beautiful fabrics, we finally chose a fabric with shades of coral, lime green and light blue that we found at Spoonflower.

Is Zoey's Nursery Indicative of Your Personal Decorating Style?
I’ve been searching for the answer to that question for as long as I can remember. My taste varies from space to space but leans toward uncluttered designs with clean lines. I was exposed to many, different decorating styles in design school and have never found it possible to settle on just one. As an example, the decor in my current home ranges from rustic to industrial and modern.

What is YOUR Favorite Feature in Zoey’s Nursery?
I suppose that would be the wall that we decorated with an arrangement of framed fabric since, as I mentioned before, we simply fell in love with the fabric. Gathering the frames and filling them with fabric was a lot of fun.

Are there any words of advice that you can offer to moms about to decorate a nursery for the first time?
Have fun designing the nursery but think ahead! The baby stage only lasts a short while.

So, make choices that will leave room for growth. Choose pieces and decorations that you love and focus less on coordination of colors and fabric. This approach will achieve results that will be visually pleasing and make smile every time you enter the room.

So much Zoey-style cuteness
by: Cara

Zoey's nursery is filled with so much unique cuteness that I had to get my notebook and jot everything down from the tubful of stuffed animals to the arrangement of the pink sneakers.
