Soft, Serene Nursery with Touches of Pink and Aqua

Angela Blake, a photographer in Birmingham, Alabama, couldn’t wait to meet her little one on the way. As she planned for her arrival, Angela discovered an aqua blue blanket with little birds that became the inspiration for the nursery design. She set out to create a space that was soft, light, and airy. The walls were painted in a soft tan, while little pops of pink and aqua bring in some fun and color. Angela used Etsy as a big resource in making this space custom, including the whimsical wall decal from PopDecors and the pretty mobile from Aprilderek. They also included some special, sentimental pieces, like a drawing of Ava’s grandmother who has passed away, and several items from Angela’s baby shower, like the letters on the dresser, framed invitation, and framed guest signatures. We also shared one of Ava’s sweet newborn photos, now that she has finally arrived! See more of this sweet space in the full gallery.

    Love it! Where did you get the white bird thing for the wall that the sweater is hanging on?

    Angela says:

    Thanks everyone!

    Kristin S. – the bird plaque on the wall (that the sweater is hanging from) came from Hobby Lobby. It was in the wrought iron type section of the store. I spray painted it the ivory color to match the room.

    I absolutely love this entire nursery! How did you do the aqua lace in the curtains? Did you buy them elsewhere or is the whole curtain set at target?

    Angela says:

    Tiffany – I actually purchased 3 separate curtain panels from Target. I used 2 crinkle sheer ivory ones and then bought 1 aqua sheer one ‘(with the circle details). I just cut it in half from the bottom up and slid it next to the ivory one. I put the cut edge (i didnt bother to sew it) next to the ivory curtain and you can’t even tell.
