European Toile and Lavender Nursery



Welcome to my little girl's lavender abode.  The completion of this nursery took me months, but after viewing numerous designer rooms, I think I came up with a space that incorporates all the things I love.




My inspiration for the room was the wall color:  soft lavender.  After painting the walls, I came to the conclusion, the room needed a focal point.  So I decided to hand paint stripes in a gloss finish on the main wall (the wall you see upon entering the room).  I think this added a subtle charm to this small space.



My next order of business, was finding the perfect bedding.  I found this task to be very difficult.  I searched numerous department stores and always found myself empty handed, so I finally decided to search the web.   To my surprise, I found the perfect crib set on Ebay.  Beautiful lavender toile, with touches of gingham and polka dots.  I couldn't be more happier with my selection!



Throughout the nursery, I used touches of cream and ivory.  I also embellished the room with bunnies and birds to give it a cozy cottage feel.



I wanted to achieve a sophisticated, serene atmosphere, yet one that was young and cheerful.

Please, Take A Tour . . .


For a special touch, I added a custom monogram.


I found this sweet little memo board at Tuesday Morning, it's the perfect match to the roman shades.


I couldn't resist these precious bunny bookends (an excellent Ebay find)!


The bows for the chandelier & table lamps were created from window valances
 (included in bedding set).


The iron work above the crib was originally brass, so I spray painted it satin nickel to match the window hardware.

  63. This nursery is oh-so-sweet! Great color and I love the toile. It's just so timeless and classic. I used green toile in the curtains for my daughter's nursery in our old house, and even as she grew older, it grew right along with her. :-) Thanks for linking up to Room Evolutions!

    1. Thank you so much for dropping by! I purchased this bedding back in '08 and did some search over the summer (for another blogger) and found that the Ebay seller no longer exists:( I found tons of beautiful toile bedding in other colors (on Ebay), but nothing in lavender. You may want to try Burlington Coat Factory, sometimes you can find exactly what you want. And, their bargain bins especially in the nursery section are great. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you and your sister find that special bedding for your little niece (congratulations!)~Jodie
