Maelin’s Lovely, Calming Nursery

A Lovely, Calming Nursery

Lisa Mezzanotte of Elisabeth Arin Photography sought out to create a space for her baby Maelin that was clean, simple and calming. Soft gray walls and white furniture have been accented with coral and touches of yellow. With a combination of handmade items, revitalized thrift store items, and some new pieces, the room came together so beautifully into this lovely nursery. Some of the handmade touches include the mobile above the crib created from some of Lisa’s wedding decorations, the bedding, the curtains, and the pillows. Lisa even sewed the quilt on the crib with the remaining fabric scraps from the other handmade items. It is not surprising at all that this is their new favorite room in the house! Stop by the full gallery to see more of this sweet space.

    This is fantastic! I love all the personal touches that have meaning because they are homemade. But my favorite piece is the wood alphabet carving. Really different!
