I also sent her four nursery ideas to see which one resonated with her the most to try to get into her head a little bit. (All nursery images were found here).
She chose nursery number three. It turned out she preferred something much more soft and traditional. Having a starting place made it so much easier. This is what we came up with:
In contrast, my daughter wants her nursery to be much brighter and she is shying away from soft pink. Her inspiration was a vase of flowers that I had put in her sister's room where she stays while she is with us.
A client of mine gave us her beautiful Bellini crib that her three daughters had outgrown. We were thrilled. My painter offered to paint the crib the color my daughter chose, Tropical Teal 734 by Benjamin Moore.
We found a crib bumper at Pottery Barn Kids that was on sale that will bring in both the teal and the pink. Here is the inspiration board I made for her:
I can hardly wait to see both nurseries completed (and the sweet little girls to arrive!).
