Carson's Nursery Inspiration

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I think the majority of y'all remember Caroline's boudoir, but if not, see this post for a show and tell of her special space.
Now I have to say, as much as I absolutely LOVE her room, I want Carson's nursery to be completely different...I know they are going to have distinct personalities all their own and even though they will be close in age, I want each of them to feel special and I want to take just as much time selecting each detail for Carson's room just like I did for Caroline.
However, that's where it gets tough...let's be honest. There are some "interesting" nurseries out there, so when I started searching for inspiration for her room, I had a REALLY difficult time finding something that stood out to me. I want feminine (yes pink), but I want bolder colors...something that makes a bit bigger of an impact than the light palette I chose for Caroline.
That's when I decided to venture out of my comfort zone and have decided on a color palette of navy, coral pink, and gray, with accents of gold. Here is the inspiration board I created for her space...

Carson's Nursery


So, what do you think? I know it's completely different than anything I've done before, and I think that is why I love it so much...I want Carson's room to be fun and bright, partly because there is so much natural light in the space.
We have already ordered her crib and dresser from Restoration Hardware (oh my love affair with their child's furniture is ridiculous) and I bought simple white and coral pink bedding from Serena and Lily that is being delivered this week...moving on to the other details and decor within the next few weeks and I am excited to see what it looks like once we're done!

  3. I fell in love with coral for my baby girls nursery. We panted our own dresser inspired by this: http://laybabylay.com/coral-and-navy-delight/

  5. I love it! But then again, my husband and I have chosen to do a pale grey, navy blue, white and soft yellow palette for our son's nursery - so I am partial to the color scheme:) I think it will look great, and will be a sweet variation from Caroline's pale pink room! They will both be gorgeous, I have no doubt!:)

  8. Love your inspiration board, I think the color scheme will be just perfect and it sounds like the bedding will be too. Of course, anything Restoration Hardware will look superb as well! Can't wait to see it all come together!

  9. LOVE these colors. I started with a very similar pallet for my wedding actually. I ended up swapping out the pink for a limey green, but I love the look for a little girls room. I'm borederline obsessed with nautical touches, and your rug makes my heart swell!

  21. I LOVE it.... I think it'll be fun to go a totally different route. And I love the coral pink / navy / gold combo - it's going to be gorgeous! I'll keep my eyes peeled (who says that??? I guess I do) for anything that goes w/ your design board!! And I just have to add ----- time has seriously FLOWN. I remember your big reveal of Caroline's nursery and that seems like two days ago!!

    Carson is one lucky little lady already! xoxo.

  24. I love it, so so pretty!!

    P.S. Have you ever seen Shag? It's a super cute movie about four best friends from South Carolina and two of the girls are Caroline & Carson. I have Caroline(6), Charlotte(4), and baby Emily(8mo). The baby is named after my grandmother, but if I had thought of Carson I may totally have stolen your name to have 3 C's. :-)
