pretty in pink

Soft, muted pinks and creams blend together in a room befitting a little princess. A canopy made from light-as-air netting gently drapes over the crib and puddles gracefully onto the whitewashed floor. (For safety reasons, remove the canopy when your baby begins to stand.) A single botanical print adds to the simplicity of this nursery.

Vintage flash cards can be found inexpensively at flea markets.

Pink polka-dotted wallpaper covers the upper half of this nursery's walls; the lower half is painted the color of farm-fresh cream. The bottom two-thirds of the wall are painted first. Then, using a level as a guide, a horizontal line is marked around the wall. Scallops are cut along the wallpaper's edges before it is hung from bottom to top so the scallops align with the wall markings.

A vintage child rocker is slipcovered in a floral print fabric which echoes the rooms soft color palette.

An antique card perches between two vintage china plates. This card is one of many bird accents used throughout the room.

Hope this gives you inspiration for your little princess's nursery!
