Undoing a Nursery

There was a darling nursery when we saw our home staged. Certainly the tot who laid his head there was quite at home, but we thought our guests might enjoy a different decor and more proper bed. (Even as I'm typing, I'm thinking with a British accent - a bit too much Downton Abbey???)

We had quite enough painting in Carolina, and we liked the color well enough, so I thought I could build around it. From there, we had a blank slate, but I knew the feeling I wanted for the room.  I wanted guests to arrive and feel as thought they had a cozy spot at a Bed & Breakfast. From there, I did a bit of Craigslisting and inspiration hunting to put together a little mood board.

Clockwise from Top L:
Pottery Barn - Mini Gilded Gold Mirrors
Craigslist - Hand Painted Headboard
Pottery Barn - Hadley Ruched Bedding
Craigslist - Antique Faux Bamboo Wood Side Table
JC Penney - Turquoise Ceramic Table Lamp

I think it needs a bit of warm golden tones - perhaps pillows or curtains? And then a traditional rug?

  1. love that ruched bedding! You probably don't want to bother with dramatic wall paper, but your inspiration board reminded me of this:

    You could also try some coral accents!
